We look through some of cinema's most infamous examples of film productions going disastrously wrong, from "Apocalypse Now" to "Heaven's Gate"

“Tropic Thunder” may get its main goofs from the idea of delusionally self-important actors being dropped into an actual war zone to contend with some very real threats to their coddled existence, but it also contains many a nod to the great tradition of film productions going disastrously wrong. This week on the IFC News podcast, we look through some of cinema’s most infamous examples, from Martin Sheen’s near-fatal heart attack during the making of “Apocalypse Now” to Michael Cimino knocking down and rebuilding a $1.2 million “Heaven’s Gate” set because he didn’t like how the buildings were spaced.
