12 Potential Future James Bond Directors

23 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Eon Productions

The 24th installment in the long-running James Bond franchise was scheduled to start shooting in a matter of weeks, but reported issues with the script have now seen that start date pushed back to December, with regular series screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade reportedly rewriting John Logan’s initial draft to inject more humor, in keeping with Daniel Craig’s quote that ‘hopefully we’ll reclaim some of the old irony’ that the franchise was well-known for once upon a time.

These script changes, along with the protracted negotiations surrounding Sam Mendes’ return to the director’s chair, are making it seem increasing unlikely that either Mendes or Logan will return for a third Bond adventure. In fact, following the $1.1bn success of Skyfall, the as-yet-untitled follow-up marks the first time in 25 years that the same director has taken charge of back-to-back Bond movies. So far, there »

Jim Belushi Will Tell The Whole Truth

10 July 2014 11:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ahead of starting production in New Orleans this week, Frozen River director Courtney Hunt’s courtroom drama The Whole Truth has added Saturday Night Live alum and famed comedian Jim Belushi to its cast, which is being led by Keanu Reeves and Renée Zellweger. The movie suffered a serious setback earlier this year when star Daniel Craig, then set for the lead role, dropped out right before production was due to begin. Luckily, Reeves was able to climb on board in June, and now the film is again ready to move forward.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle) and Gabriel Basso (The Kings of Summer) also have roles in The Whole Truth, which centers on a defense attorney named Richard Ramsay (Reeves), who is defending a teenager named Mike (Basso) charged with murder. The evidence against his client includes a knife with his finger prints and a near confession, but Ramsay remains unconvinced of his guilt. »

There’ll be plenty of time to celebrate what the Emmys got right (see the full list of nominees here) and to argue about what they got wrong—but this is not the place for that.

Mendes: bringing Bond out of the bubble

10 July 2014 1:29 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sam Mendes, speaking at a Films Without Borders event at Windsor Castle on Tuesday night, spoke about how the spirit of the London Olympics influenced the pro-British enthusiasm in the last James Bond film, Skyfall.

Mendes says he remembers thinking “I think this might be okay,” during the 2012 Olympics as he was editing Skyfall.

He recalls watching Mo Farah’s race with his son and father and being inspired by “80,000 people cheering for the same guy.” “There was a feeling around London and England that changed the way I cut the movie,” he says, “It fed into it in an interesting way.”

He says following up on Skyfall’s huge success “is a big challenge for me… I am just hammering it [the script] out now. It’s gruelling but it’s fun.”

After doing Skyfall, which was hailed as a more modern approach to Bond, he knew he wanted to do a follow-up film. “We had taken »

Hollywood Costume Lands At The Academy

8 July 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

This fall the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present the final showing of the groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building, the future location of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, at Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles. Organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), this ticketed exhibition explores the central role of costume design – from the glamorous to the very subtle – as an essential tool of cinematic storytelling.

The Academy is enhancing the V&A’s exhibition and will include more than 145 costumes from over 60 lenders. The Academy’s presentation will add more than 30 costumes to this landmark show, including Jared Leto’s costume from Dallas Buyers Club (Kurt and Burt, 2013) – a recent acquisition to the Academy’s collection – as well as costumes from such recent releases as The Hunger Games (Judianna Makovsky, 2012), Django Unchained (Sharen Davis, »

His Word Is Not His ‘Bond’ – 007 Delayed

1 July 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Here are two words I thought I’d never use in one of my articles – “Daily Mail”. But in a recent story the paper has drawn attention to perceived production difficulties at the (presumably top secret) offices of Bond 24. The challenges appear to arise from the rehiring of long-standing screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade in order to give Skyfall scribe John Logan’s script some snazz. While the expression “too many cooks spoil the Martini” springs to mind, the Bond franchise is really the wrong one to be looking at if we’re talking multiple authors. Star Daniel Craig once admitted that Quantum Of Solace had been partly cobbled together by himself and the director during a writers’ strike. And the films are no stranger to the path of the pudding, hence Tomorrow Never Dies.  Putting Purvis and Wade back on the payroll has led to the shoot »

Production delay hits James Bond 24

29 June 2014 10:26 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Shooting on Sam Mendes' next James Bond film, starring Daniel Craig, moves back two months for script work...


It's little secret that the 24th James Bond film, and the one to pick up the mantle from Skyfall, is set to shoot later this year. With a UK release date of October 2015, time is not on the side of the production.

The new movie, which Sam Mendes is returning to direct, won't however be shooting until December now it seems, courtesy of a fresh delay caused by the need for more script work. With it previously having looked as if they'd completed their work on the Bond series after five movies, screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are apparently back on board to take a pass at John Logan's screenplay. The aim is to add more humour, it seems, with a specific focus on scenes between Bond and Miss Moneypenny, »

Why Mendes Brought Back Purvis & Wade for 'Bond 24' Polish

28 June 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Turnabout is fair play, as veteran James Bond scribes Neil Purvis & Robert Wade have been reinstated to add a bit of witty repartee to the upcoming "Bond 24," according to the reliable Baz Bamigboye of UK's DailyMail. Purvis & Wade, franchise staples since Pierce Brosnan's "The World is Not Enough" (1999), turned over the screenwriting reins to John Logan for "Bond 24" after he was brought in to polish their work on "Skyfall," which, of course, become the first billion Bond in franchise history. While tag-teaming the scripting of Bond is not unusual, the return of Purvis & Wade has caused "polite turmoil," according to an exec, and will push production back on "Bond 24" from October to December, but still on course for its 2015 release (October 23 in the UK and November 6 domestically).  This obviously means that director Sam Mendes, Bond star Daniel Craig, and producers Michael Wilson and Barbara »

Production Reportedly Delayed on James Bond 24 Due to Script Issues

28 June 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

According to The Daily Mail‘s Baz Bamigboye, there has been some “polite turmoil” behind the scenes of James Bond 24. This has resulted in filming being delayed, and the blame is being put on script issues.

When director Sam Mendes agreed to return for the currently untitled James Bond 24, it was revealed that Oscar nominated writer John Logan (who was credited with making Skyfall arguably the best Bond movie to date) would be writing the follow-up alone, and without longtime 007 scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

However, the duo who have written five films in the franchise together, and have now been hired to rewrite Logan’s screenplay and, “give it some ‘punch’.” What exactly could they mean by this?

Well, Bamigboye goes on to claim that they are there to, “sprinkle in more gags, emphasising the witty repartee between Daniel Craig’s 007 and Naomie Harris’s Miss Moneypenny, »

Skyfall Co-Writers Brought Back for Bond 24 to Bump Up the Humor

28 June 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Before Bond 24 goes into production, it looks like the script is going to get a polish. Screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have been brought back on board to work on the script that was written by John Logan. The two screenwriters have a history with Bond and have worked on the scripts for SkyfallThe World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royale, and Quantum Of Solace.

According to Daily Mail, this has been causing some issues behind the scenes, and will delay production. A source had this to say to say about it:

"Let’s call it polite turmoil. People are getting on with their work, but we have to wait for the script, so filming won’t begin till December, a few months later than they wanted." 

Apparently one of the main reasons producers have asked Purvis and Wade to come back was to "punch »

Jon Favreau Talks Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man' Exit and Marvel's Shared Universe

28 June 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If anyone knows what its like to walk in Edgar Wright's shoes during the whole Ant-Man debacle, its Iron Man director Jon Favreau, who stepped away from Iron Man 3 after experiencing his own creative differences with Marvel Studios. Jon recently addressed Edgar's exit while taking a stance not unlike Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. He didn't side with either party.

Looking at the situation from a distance, he realized that Edgar Wright's style and Marvel's shared universe just weren't going to mesh.

"Edgar's a dear friend of mine - I was so looking forward to his version of Ant-Man. All Edgar's films have been studio films, it's not like he's never made one before. I think he's been used to a situation where he can have tremendous creative say around his story and casting, and Marvel has built an entire franchise around their style of telling stories. »

Neal Purvis, Robert Wade Returning to Write 24th James Bond Movie

27 June 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who have co-written the last five James Bond movies, are returning to work on the script for the 24th Bond film.

The British writing team has been hired to re-write John Logan’s script. The three scribes collaborated on “Skyfall” but Logan had been the only writer previously on Bond 24.

Skyfall” director Sam Mendes came on board last July for the 24th film in the franchise along with Daniel Craig as the iconic British spy. MGM, Sony and producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced at that point that they had locked in release dates for the yet-to-be titled film, setting the U.K. launch for Oct. 23, 2015, and U.S. for Nov. 6, 2015.

Skyfall” is the top grosser in the franchise with $1.1 billion worldwide, the best DVD/Blu-Ray seller and the all-time best performer at the U.K. box office. It also won Oscars »

Bond 24 production to be delayed for script rewrites

27 June 2014 12:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Word from The Daily Mail today is that rewrites are needed on the script for Bond 24, which could cause a small delay on the start of production, but not necessarily affect the film’s release date. The site says that is likely the film will now start in December of this year, having originally been set to go in October. Whether this will have any impact on actors’ availability remains to be seen.

Since it was first announced, hopes have been high for the newest Bond adventure. Sam Mendes has been hired again to direct, after he delivered over $1 billion at the worldwide box office on Skyfall, and Daniel Craig will again portray 007, along with the returning Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) and Ben Whishaw (Q). In addition, there was strong early round, particularly around Oscar season back in February, that Academy Award Nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A »

Jon Favreau gives his opinion on Edgar Wright leaving Marvel's 'Ant-Man'

(Cbr)  If any filmmaker knows what it’s like to work with Marvel Studios, it’s Jon Favreau. As the director of the first two "Iron Man" films and a producer on "The Avengers," Favreau is well acquainted with the inner workings of the superhero studio, for better and for worse. Favreau’s also familiar with Edgar Wright, a colleague and friend, and the man who walked away from "Ant-Man" last month after spending several years developing the project. Given his knowledge of both Wright and Marvel, Favreau opened up to about the "Ant-Man" breakup, and where he stands on the matter: "Edgar’s a dear friend of mine – I was so looking forward to his version of 'Ant-Man,'" he said.
