Daniel Craig will be back filming James Bond 007 at the end of the year, as one or two details emerge about the production...
Giving themselves the usual tight turnaround (if not tighter this time, in fact), the team on the next James Bond movie are set to start shooting 007's 24th adventure on December 6th 2014. The new film will then kick off its global run in British cinemas at the end of October 2015.
As for the cast, we know that Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris and Rory Kinnear are also returning. Casting continues however, with Bond's foes in this one yet to be put in place. MI6-hq, which broke the filming date news, »
David Fincher ("Fight Club") recently chatted with the Swedish film site, Afton Bladet (translations via Film Divider), regarding the chances of a sequel to his 2011 film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. "I think because it [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something. The script that we now have a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book." David Fincher It was based on the book by Stieg Larsson, which is part of a trilogy and it starred Rooney Mara ("The Social Network") as Lisbeth Salander and Daniel Craig ("Skyfall") as Mikael Blomkvist. The film pulled in $232 million at the worldwide box office. Fans of the book aren't going to be happy to hear that a sequel will be extremely different from the book as “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and »
Back in June, we reported that production on the highly-anticipated Bond 24 has been pushed to December 2014, with Skyfall co-writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade returning to work on the original script by John Logan. Today, MI6-hq.com reports that shooting has been scheduled to begin on December 6, 2014.
The filmmaker and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are currently casting for the Bond Girl and villain roles. We reported last month that the villain will be a towering man named Hinx, who has been compared to classic James Bond villains Jaws and Oddjob. While several Scandanavian actresses have tested for a secondary roles, the primary Bond Girl will be British.
Production is scheduled to take place in Austria, »
Chalk this one up firmly as a rumour – especially considering its source is the UK tabloid The Sun – but it seems that Daniel Craig (Skyfall) may have shot a secret cameo appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII. Craig reportedly begged director J.J. Abrams for a role in the hotly-anticipated sequel, saying that he’d be happy to have his face hidden, and apparently shot the part this week at Pinewood, where he was spotted with Carrie Fisher. However, a more likely scenario is that Craig was at Pinewood for pre-production on Bond 24, which is set to begin filming this December.
Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release on December 18th 2015 and sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Andy Serkis »

Movie News - Daniel Craig is set for a secret cameo appearance in 'Star Wars Episode VII'. The 'Skyfall' star is a big fan of the science fiction saga, and he has reportedly filmed a mystery role in the upcoming seventh installment of the franchise - but his face will be kept hidden. An insider told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: ''Daniel asked for some sort of secret cameo role - and was happy to have his name left off the posters. ''Fans will love trying to work out which covered up character is him.'' The 'James Bond' star - who will reprise his role as the fictional British spy in the as-yet-untitled 'Bond 24' - is said to have begged 'Star Wars' director Jj Abrams for the small part due to his love for the series. Meanwhile, 'The Avengers' star Mark Ruffalo recently joked he begged 'Star Wars »
Rick Lawrence has shared a ton of Star Wars Episode VII set photos through his Facebook page, and they offer up our first look at the Rebel Alliance and a strange looking vehicle of some sort (which we would guess is for transporting troops). It's hard to tell, but the first two images definitely feature actors who appear to be Adam Driver (Girls) and Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), and if not, they certainly bear a striking resemblance! Looks like they'll be good guys! More photos can be found by clicking on the link above, but here are a selection of some of the best. Oh, and in case you happen to see a rumour doing the rounds about Daniel Craig being in the J.J. Abrams helmed movie, he's only at Pinewood because pre-production on Bond 24 has begun, and not because he'll be taking on some sort of mysterious »
The actor, best known for his role as James Bond, will allegedly make a secret cameo appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII, with this face hidden.
Rumours emerged after The Sun on Sunday quoted an inside source saying: "Daniel asked for some sort of secret cameo role – and was happy to have his name left off the posters.
"Fans will love trying to work out which covered-up character is him."
In June it was reported that Johnson had been chosen to take the helm on Episode VIII, as well as writing Episode IX.
Remarkably, a man flying a drone in Berkshire appears to have accidentally stumbled upon the set of Star Wars Episode VII. »
While David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” pulled in $232 million in 2011, there’s been no official confirmations that the next two books in the Stieg Larsson trilogy, “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and ‘The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Next,” will be adapted into English-language films (the Swedish versions came out in 2009). However, Fincher revealed recently that he has hope for the possibility.
The director said that Sony, the producer of “Dragon Tattoo,” would likely do “something” with the work that’s already been done on the sequels.
“I think because (Sony) already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script, it will result in something,” he told Swedish site Afton Bladet (via Film Divider, which provided translation), talking about Steven Zaillian’s screenplays.
“The script that we now have has huge potential. I can reveal that it is extremely different from the book, »

It looks like the next instalment in the James Bond franchise has a start date, with MI6 reporting that principal photography on the as-yet-untitled Bond 24 will get underway on December 6th, following a script read-through in November.
Bond 24 will reunite Skyfall director Sam Mendes with Daniel Craig, who is making his fourth appearance as 007, while the cast also includes the returning Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear.
As yet, there’s been no official word on new additions to the cast, although the producers are apparently seeking a physically imposing henchmen in the vein of Jaws and Oddjob, while the likes of Chiwetel Ejiofor and Lea Seydoux have been linked to roles.
Bond 24 is set for a UK release on October 23rd 2015 and will arrive in the States on November 6th.

Having gone through another relatively long gap between 007 films, many fans have been waiting for any hint of production news in regards to Bond 24. Well, that wait is nearly over, as we now have word that principle photography for Daniel Craig’s fourth outing as MI6′s premier super spy will begin on December 6, 2014.
Before shooting actually begins, director Sam Mendes will have the main cast together at Pinewood for a table reading of the final script. Casting is not complete yet though, as there are still a few roles that have yet to be filled (or at least announced), including the main Bond girl, the villains, and other feminine interests for 007. That’s quite a bit of casting to wrap up in the next couple months.
We also still have next to nothing in terms of information about the plot of this film, but there have been »

In 2011, David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en) co-wrote and directed an adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s highly acclaimed Swedish crime novel The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo starring Daniel Craig (Skyfall) as troubled journalist-turned-detective Mikael Blomkvist and Rooney Mara (Her) as badass hacker Lisbeth Salander. Despite reaping a tonne of money and award nominations the general consensus is that Sony regarded the movie as a failure.
Speaking recently to the Swedish press while on tour promoting his latest film Gone Girl, Fincher provided a small update on the proposed sequel The Girl Who Played With Fire: “I think because [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something. The script that we now have [has] a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book.”

During promotional rounds for Gone Girl, Fincher offered an update on The Girl Who Played with Fire, which is being scripted by his Se7en writer Andrew Kevin Walker and will depart dramatically from the source text.
"I think because [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script it will result in something," the director told Swedish site Afton Bladet.
"The script that we now have has a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book."
David Fincher’s cinematic rendition of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was a peculiar beast. On one hand, the auteur delivered a thrillingly stylish R-rated depiction of Lisbeth Salander — combined with Trent Reznor’s excellent score — that was wholly well-received. But, on the other, the film arrived within two years of its Swedish counterpart and failed to recoup Sony’s initial investment, making just $230 million worldwide.
Subsequently, any hope of a potential sequel based on Larsson’s The Girl Who Played With Fire were apparently extinguished. That said, Fincher may have recently rekindled some of that hope if a recent interview is anything to go by.
Whilst promoting his soon to be released thriller Gone Girl in Sweden, the filmmaker spoke to a local magazine and, as you’d expect, Google Translate provided a rather wonky interpretation. Nevertheless, the message is clear.

With November Man out, excitement for Pierce Bosnan’s return to spying is at an all-time high for many James Bond fans. November Man, based on the seventh installment of Bill Granger’s book series called There Are No Spies, is about ex- CIA agent Peter Devereaux (Pierce Bosnan). While living a quiet life in Switzerland, Devereaux is ejected out of retirement for one last mission. Although the concept of the “one last mission/job” is not a new concept for Hollywood, it definitely has its place in cinema history, branching out to a wide range of reasons why our beloved characters are being pulled back into their past lives. From a retiree’s last gig, to the bad-boy-gone-good-and-then-bad-again mission, to the revenge premise, mythology of the ex-professional can surely delight and excite us to champion our heroes for one last fight. Here are scenes from ten incredible “one last job” films, »

While promoting his "Equalizer" film, Denzel Washington took questions from fans on Reddit. One of the questions was whether he would like to play a superhero, to which he hinted that he would love to star in Marvel's "Black Panther." Apparently there's another role he would love to play... James Bond. He said: "The next James Bond? They better hurry up. Yes, I would. Who's doing James Bond now? Daniel Craig. Did they shoot another one? Everybody should tweet Denzel is James Bond. Send it to the studio. We start the Denzel is Bond campaign today." Just like with the "Black Panther" role, Washington feels that he may be too old to play James Bond. And he's not the only black actor who wants the role. Both P. Diddy and Idris Elba have expressed interest in playing 007. »
James Bond producers threw a bit of a curve ball when they hired blond actor Daniel Craig to play the latest incarnation of 007, but history has shown us that the only actors really ever seriously considered for the role are white dudes who hail from the British Isles. This has been the case for all six performers who have taken the part so far, dating back to 1962's Dr. No, but there's always the question of whether or not it could ever change in the future. Is it possible that we could one day see, perhaps, a black American dude playing James Bond? It turns out that if the decision were up to Denzel Washington that the answer would be a definitive "yes." The actor recently took part in an Ama session on Reddit, and one of his most enthusiastic answers he gave to one of his fans' questions was »
“The next James Bond? They better hurry up! Yes I would! Who’s doing James Bond now? Daniel Craig! Did they shoot another one? Everybody should tweet Denzel is James Bond! Send it to the studio!” he replied to user BigTalk45. “We start the Denzel is Bond campaign today! James Washington. Denzel Bond!”
Denzel Washing As First Black James Bond?
Like Liam Neeson, Washington has found something of a second career renaissance playing middle-aged action heroes. Washington’s last film Safe House received many comparisons to the Bond franchise among reviewers.
If it turns out that Washington does take on the roll, it would be historical for two reasons. Washington’s casting would make it the first time that Bond has been black and played by an American (Barry Nelson doesn »
Are audiences ready for a black James Bond? Denzel Washington seemed to think so — or hope so — on Friday. The actor enthusiastically volunteered for the high profile gig — currently occupied by Daniel Craig — during a Reddit Ama when a fan asked if he would be interested in the role.

It’s a question he’s been asked before: Would you considering being the next James Bond? But while he skirted around the question back in 2012 — saying “it’s too late now” — when a Reddit user posed the question again on Friday during an extensive Ama, he seemed a bit more enthusiastic. In fact, he seemed to get downright giddy at the thought of it, urging everyone to start a “Denzel is Bond” campaign stat.
