Apocalypse on the Set

Ben Taylor

With sky-high budgets and competing egos, almost any film production has the potential for disaster. But some become full-fledged nightmares.

This is a book film fans will devour. These bizarre, often hilarious cinematic endeavours confirm that truth is stranger than fiction, reality more volatile than narratives, and fate more improbable than plots.
