'Her' Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema To Shoot Sam Mendes' 'Bond 24,' Filming Starts In December

17 September 2014 6:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Since lensing 2008’s “Let The Right One In” for Tomas Alfredson, cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (who we've had our eye on since we put him in our On The Rise feature in 2010) has become a popular choice for auteurs when their usual director of photography is unavailable. Hoytema stepped in for frequent Spike Jonze collaborator Lance Acord on “Her” and he subbed in for cinematographer-turned-director Wally Pfister on Christopher Nolan’s upcoming “Interstellar.” As if replacing those two great DPs wasn’t tough enough, the “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” cinematographer is going to have to fill some very big and iconic shoes for his next gig. We found out earlier this year that the amazing and legendary Roger Deakins would not be returning to work on “Bond 24” with Sam Mendes, and now HitFix is reporting that Hoytema will be filling in instead. Interestingly, there’s a possibility – not »

Bond gets a new cinematographer

17 September 2014 1:42 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Deakins replaced with Nolan's new favourite shooter. With celebrated cinematographer Roger Deakins not returning to the Bond franchise after his fantastic work on Skyfall, director Sam Mendes has been on the search for a replacement. So it makes a lot of sense that he's settled on the same name as Christopher Nolan, whose next movie Interstellar required him to replace his own collaborator, Wally Pfister. »

"Bond 24" Gets A New Cinematographer

16 September 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though it got great notices, without a doubt the most universally acclaimed element of the Sam Mendes-directed 2012 James Bond film "Skyfall" was that of the visual work and compositions of cinematographer Roger Deakins.

Sadly Mendes couldn't get Deakins back for the upcoming "Skyfall" due to his commitment to the Coens' upcoming "Hail, Caesar". It's a fair enough scheduling conflict though, after all Deakins' work on "Skyfall" prevented him from working on the Coens' "Inside Llewyn Davis".

Despite Deakins' departure, it seems Mendes has settled on a superb replacement. In Contention reports that Hoyte van Hoytema has scored the gig.

The Dutch-Swedish cinematographer first came to notice for the original "Let the Right One In" and has since done stellar work on the likes of "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," "The Fighter," "Her" and Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fi epic "Interstellar".

The site also says, though this is unconfirmed, that Bond 24 »

Her and Interstellar Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema to Replace Roger Deakins on Bond 24; May Shoot on Film

16 September 2014 5:48 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It was incredibly disappointing to hear that cinematographer Roger Deakins would not be returning for Bond 24 after doing such a stunning job on Skyfall.  However, as production on the next Bond installment is poised to get underway in December, director Sam Mendes has now settled on Deakins’ replacement, and it’s an excellent choice.  In Contention reports that Hoyte van Hoytema will be the cinematographer on Bond 24, marking yet another fantastic notch in what’s becoming a heck of a run in the director of photography’s career.  The Dutch-Swedish cinematographer first came to prominence for shooting the original Let the Right One In, going on to do equally arresting work on films like Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and last year’s Her.  Most recently, though, he nabbed his most high profile film to date as Christopher Nolan hand-picked him to replace his longtime collaborator Wally Pfister on the upcoming Interstellar. »

'Interstellar' cinematographer to fill Roger Deakins' shoes on Sam Mendes' Bond 24

16 September 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

BAFTA-nominated cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema has been turning heads ever since his stunning work in the stylish Swedish horror film "Let the Right One In" crossed the Atlantic six years ago. And lately, he's just getting all the good gigs, having stepped in for Spike Jonze regular Lance Acord on last year's "Her" and for Christopher Nolan's right hand man Wally Pfister on the upcoming "Interstellar." Well, you can add another big pair of shoes for the talented director of photography to fill. With Roger Deakins exiting the James Bond franchise after 2012's "Skyfall," we can confirm that director Sam Mendes has tapped van Hoytema to shoot the still untitled 24th installment of the series. Deakins won the Asc prize for "Skyfall" two years ago, but as is often the story, he watched someone else take the Oscar (in this case, Claudio Miranda for "Life of Pi," which is »

24th James Bond Movie Starts Shooting Dec. 6

15 September 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sam Mendes will begin filming the 24th James Bond film on Dec. 6, with the main cast members meeting for a table read that date at Pinewood Studios.

Daniel Craig will return as the iconic British spy for his fourth Bond movie. Also reprising their roles will be Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner and Ben Whishaw as Q.

Mendes, who directed the last Bond pic,”Skyfall,” is helming from a script by John Logan that was rewritten by the team of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. The three scribes collaborated on “Skyfall,” but Logan had previously been the only writer on the as-yet-to-be-titled film known as Bond24.

MGM, Sony and producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced last summer that they had locked in release dates for the film, setting the U.K. launch for Oct. 23, 2015, and U.S. for Nov. »

Examining 'American Beauty' at 15: A masterpiece, or a farce?

15 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Fifteen years ago this week, Sam Mendes’ film American Beauty arrived in U.S. theaters. In Florida, a film critic named Jay Boyar reviewed Mendes’ first full-length feature for the Orlando Sentinel—and he wrote that after seeing it, he “decided that the little satirical film would come and go without much fuss.”

However: “In the weeks since I saw the film, it has opened in a few places to ridiculously generous reviews,” Boyar mused. “Entertainment Weekly called it ‘bracing in its intensity’ and the New York Times praised its ‘eloquent flights of fancy.’ I’m sorry to say that »

'Bond 24' Gets a Start Date: Hoytema Replaces Deakins

15 September 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Now, with Roger Deakins declining to return to "Bond 24" (not enough left in the Bond universe to satisfy him creatively), director Sam Mendes has brought on cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema ("Interstellar," "Her," "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy") to shoot the sequel to "Skyfall."  Considering how Hoytema is such a thinking person's Dp and has created such distinctive visual palettes for directors Christopher Nolan ("Interstellar"), Spike Jonze ("Her"), and Tomas Alfredson ("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "Let the Right One In"), he should be the perfect match for Sam Mendes (who's worked with two of the best in the late Conrad Hall and Deakins). Who knows: "Bond 24" might see a return to shooting film as well. Meanwhile, there's another connection to the iconic "Goldfinger" for Daniel Craig's fourth outing as 007 (which opens October 23rd, 2015 in the UK and November »

The Essential Movies & TV to Stream This Week – September 15th 2014

15 September 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

First of all, something of an apology. I have been writing this column thinking that every single title due for release the following Monday would of course be released via some kind of pay to stream service. Of course it would, we are living in the future, and this is how things are done isn’t it?

Apparently not, last week I included Jeremy Saulnier’s much loved Blue Ruin in the pay to stream section and then it didn’t come out the way I thought it might. Turns out that some companies still have a fairly limited release pattern so Blue Ruin was released by channel 4’s DVD label and appeared on DVD and Blu but didn’t show up to stream on any of the major providers, not even Sky Store or Playstation Network.

So turns out that being a channel 4 release, you can of course rent »

Bond 24 will start principal photography on December 6th, 2014

15 September 2014 6:35 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

It seems that the Bond films are being approached with a little more care these days, as production on Bond 24 was delayed to give time for filmmaker Sam Mendes (Skyfall, Jarhead) to return. Mendes previously mentioned that a strong reason for his return is that he felt he left a lot of the stories established in Skyfall "incomplete", and that it felt like part 1 of a 2-part story. With casting currently underway, a principal photography date has been set and that is December 6th of »

'Bond 24' Gets A Start Date

With a release date of November 6, 2015, it was only a matter of time before the next James Bond film- nicknamed Bond 24, for now- would go before cameras. There have been a handful of reports regarding the kinds of locations that are being scouted lately. We all ready know that Sam Mendes is back in the director's chair. We know that John Logan (Skyfall), Neal Purvis, and Robert Wade were writing the script. We also know that Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomi Harris, and Ben Whishaw would be back as 007, M, Moneypenny, and Q, respectively. Now, thanks to MI6-hq, we know exactly when production will start.

On December 6th, principal photography will begin on Bond 24. As of now, nothing is known about the plot of the film, though it's likely going to continue the trend of the Craig films where it will have direct ties to its predecessor. »

Filming is slated to officially begin on the next James Bond film on December 6th 2014 reports MI6 HQ. Director Sam Mendes will apparently assemble his cast for a table read of the screenplay in late November at Pinewood Studios.

In previous years, the film's title is announced at the start of production media launch, meaning we should expect to hear that announcement in either the last week of November of the first week of December.

Filming is slated to take place in Austria, Italy, Morocco and of course at Bond's U.K. home base of Pinewood Studios. The film itself is slated for release on November »
