17 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Daniel Craig spent the Spectre press tour acting actively disinterested in the legendary character he was portraying, but according to a BBC report his ’tude hasn’t dissuaded the Bond producers from wanting him to return for another go as James Bond. Callum McDougall—who has executive produced all of Craig’s Bond movies—told a BBC radio show that Craig is apparently still Bond honchos Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson’s “first choice.” Asked point blank who is going to be assume the role of the suave spy next, McDougall said, “I wish I knew. We’d love Daniel. We would love Daniel to return as Bond.” He added that if Craig wants it, the job is “absolutely” his.

Marc Forster Says He Wanted To Pull Out Of ‘Quantum Of Solace’ Due To Writers Strike

17 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Before cameras even started rolling, “Quantum Of Solace” already had a big hill to climb, following Daniel Craig‘s first (and arguably still best) outing as James Bond in “Casino Royale.” However, the job was made doubly difficult for director Marc Forster with the 2007/2008 Writers Guild strike, which left the movie without a finished script.

“On ‘Quantum,’ we were fucked,” Craig stated quite candidly in 2011.

However, any predictions may be premature at this point. According to Callum McDougall, who’s executive produced all the Daniel Craig Bond films to […]

Daniel Craig Remains “First Choice” For Next James Bond Movie

20 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite Daniel Craig’s general indifference to Bond 25 – something the British actor has been vocal about in the past, even reportedly turning down exorbitant contract agreements – Craig is still “absolutely the first choice” to headline the next James Bond film when the time calls.

Word comes by way of the BBC, where Callum McDougall appeared on Radio 4’s Today programme. It was here that the franchise veteran – McDougall has executive produced nine Bond movies in total, including Craig’s quartet: Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre – revealed that despite reports to the contrary, series producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are working to lock down Daniel Craig for at least one more outing as the famed 00 agent.

Daniel Craig Is Still The “First Choice” To Play James Bond

21 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While it seems every other week brings some kind of speculation about the future of the James Bond franchise — usually spurred by U.K. bookmakers on slow business days, which is then picked up by U.K. press on slow news days — the truth is nobody knows anything. And while there has been all kinds of talk about who could replace Daniel Craig as 007, that presupposes that he’s done with the series.

James Bond Producers Reveal Who Their First Choice Is For Next 007 Film

21 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

What was once a love-hate relationship between Daniel Craig and the role of James Bond seemingly became a hate-hate relationship last year, when Craig spoke rather bluntly about how "over it" he was, following the release of Spectre. And yet, it seems, the folks in charge of the Bond franchise would still love for Craig to have a change of heart.

According to Callum MacDougal, who served as an executive producer on the last four Bond flicks- i.e. all of the Craig ones- and has worked on nine total 007 flicks, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson think of Craig as their absolute first choice for the next film.

This all came up during a BBC interview, when MacDougal was asked if there was a chance Craig might return. "I wish I knew,” he answered. “We love Daniel. We would love Daniel to return as Bond. Without any question »

Daniel Craig remains first choice for James Bond, “without question”

30 September 2016 2:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 30, 2016

The executive producer of the James Bond films insisted that the role remains Daniel Craig's - if he wants it...

As speculation continues over the direction of the next James Bond film, the executive producer on the last five movies – Callum McDougall – has been speaking to Radio 4's Today programme on the BBC. Specifically, he's been addressing the suspicion that Daniel Craig won't be returning as 007, and that Spectre was his swansong in the role.

“We would love Daniel to return as Bond, without any question”, McDougall insisted, when quizzed about the casting for James Bond 25. He added that Craig is producer Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli’s “first choice”.

If Craig signs, presenter Nick Robinson asked, the job’s his? “Absolutely”, McDougall said.

It doesn’t resolve much of course, given that the rumour mill continues to insist that Daniel Craig is done with the part of James Bond. »

Spectre: one year on, where's it left the James Bond series?

29 September 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 30, 2016

There’s little sign of a new James Bond film yet, and Spectre has left lots of questions behind. So what now, 007?

Update: here's a story that landed this morning, of relevance to this article.

This article contains light spoilers for Spectre.

At the end of October 2015, the 24th James Bond film, Spectre, enjoyed its global premiere. Following the massive success of Skyfall, hopes were understandably high for Spectre, and it quickly notched up some strong – and not so strong – reviews. Originally rumoured to be the first of a two part story (with a suggestion that it be filmed back to back with James Bond 25), Spectre would prove to be a big box office hit too. As Bond drove off into the sunset at the end of the film, the next adventure was surely an inevitability.

But something wasn’t quite right. And one year later, »

Sam Mendes Circling Former Todd Field Project ‘Beautiful Ruins’

As we patiently waited for Todd Field to helm a new film after “Little Children,” one of the many projects he tried to get off the ground was an adaptation of Jess Walter’s “Beautiful Ruins.” Imogen Poots was attached to lead the project, but unfortunately, it never got going and fell by the wayside. With Field now gearing up to shoot the 20-episode “Purity” next year starring Daniel Craig, “Beautiful Ruins” now has a new name looking to get behind the camera.

In what is sure to become one of the hottest packages in town, Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson are set to star in an untitled movie Kaling also wrote revolving around a veteran late-night talk show host.

Rooney Mara Isn't Holding Out For A Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Sequel

26 September 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Back in 2005, the book Men Who Hate Women was published in Sweden by publisher Norstedts Förlag. The novel was a posthumous publication from author and journalist Stieg Larsson, and in 2008, it was published in English under the name The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. From there, the novel went on to be an international sensation, and was adapted into a trilogy of films in Sweden. In true Hollywood style, it was acquired for an American adaptation, and was eventually released in 2011.

Directed by David Fincher and starring Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig, the film proved to be a faithful and compelling take on the original source material (many even felt it was superior to the original Swedish movie). While the film had stellar reviews and great word of mouth, it wasn't exactly the feel-good film of the holiday season, and only went on to make around $230 million at the box office off its $90 million budget. »

Don’t Hold Out Hope For Girl With Dragon Tattoo Sequel, Says Rooney Mara

26 September 2016 8:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The moment Sony fast-tracked plans to develop an American version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in 2011 – only two years after the release of the original, Noomi Rapace version – a handful of moviegoers were understandably perplexed.

Drafting in top-tier talent in the form of Daniel Craig, director David Fincher and The Social Network‘s Rooney Mara as the enigmatic Lisbeth Salander, the end product was a chilling, largely enjoyable psychological thriller, and though Sony had initially mapped out plans to adapt Stieg Larsson’s full Millennium series, off the back of lowly box office returns, those plans quickly unravelled.

Indeed, interest in the English-language version appears to be waning and waning fast, but as is so often the case, Sony’s radio silence on the matter has only fuelled speculation regarding Dragon Tattoo‘s future. Early on, reports claimed the studio wanted to push on with its adaptation sans »
