5 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

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.

MGM Completes $1 Billion Credit Facility

29 June 2016 10:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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 »

Daniel Craig in Talks for Halle Berry’s L.A. Riots Movie ‘Kings’

28 June 2016 5:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Daniel Craig is in early negotiations to star opposite Halle Berry in “Kings,” the independent drama set against the backdrop of the 1992 Los Angeles riots.

Deniz Gamze Erguven, director of “Mustang,” is directing “Kings” from her own script in what will be her English-language debut. She’s re-teamed with “Mustang” producer Charles Gillibert.

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. »
