There were numerous stories of issues with "Spectre" during its production and release, be it on-set injuries to actor Daniel Craig's dismissive attitude to the franchise during the press tour. With its predecessor "Skyfall" though it seemed everything went pretty smoothly.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has completed a newly structured $1 billion five-year revolving credit facility arranged by J.P. Morgan Chase with a syndicate of lenders.
MGM, home to the James Bond franchise, made the announcement on Wednesday.
The new funding structure replaces MGM’s existing $665 million revolving credit facility and lowers its borrowing rate to Libor (the London Interbank Offered Rate) plus 2.25%, and augments other terms within the agreement. The company also prepaid its $300 million second lien term loan, resulting in expected interest savings of approximately $50 million over its remaining term.
“I am truly honored and humbled by the vote of confidence in MGM demonstrated by the syndicate of lenders that supported this credit facility, many of whom were part of our prior facility,” said Gary Barber, MGM’s chairman and CEO. “The size and structure of this new facility are indicative of MGM’s strong financial position and bright future, and will »

Should Craig come on board, he will portray a loner who lives in South Central Los Angeles and falls in love with Berry’s character. When the riots erupt, he will help Berry in protecting her children from the violence.
The riots started a few hours after a jury in suburban Simi Valley acquitted four Los Angeles Police officers of use of excessive force in the videotaped arrest and beating of Rodney King in 1991 following a high-speed chase. A total of 55 people died during the riots amid looting, assault and arson causing more than $1 billion of property damage. »

Things have been a little quiet on the James Bond front as of late after a flurry of rumors over the last month or so surrounding who may be taking over for Daniel Craig as 007. Things are still uncertain as to whether or not Craig is going to return, but if he doesn't, Thor star Tom Hiddleston is still regarded as the frontrunner. Unless you have been sleeping under a rock or simply don't care, you might know that Hiddleston just so happens to be dating Taylor Swift. What does that have to do with James Bond 25?

Those already attached to the project include Hilary Swank, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Seth MacFarlane, Katherine Heigl, and Riley Keough. The drama will follow a desolate West Virginia father, who’s down to his last dollar. In an attempt to help his family he teams up with a group of thieves to steal $14 million from a motor speedway. The sparse additional casting will continue as the project moves toward production at the end of summer. The streaming universe is bulking up this week with multiple projects for the big three—Netflix, Hulu, and »
