Gillian Anderson Responds to Push for Her as the Next 'Bond. Jane Bond'

23 May 2016 7:03 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Never mind that Daniel Craig is not actually done as James Bond, not yet anyway. Fans are having too much fun promoting their favorite replacements at the hashtag #NextBond -- from Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and Michael Fassbender to Emily Blunt, Hayley Atwell, and Gillian Anderson.

Someone even created an awesome Bond poster for the "X-Files" star, and Gillian retweeted it with a nod to the fandom:

It's Bond. Jane Bond.

Thanks for all the votes! (And sorry, don't know who made poster but I love it!) #NextBond pic.twitter.com/f8GC4ZuFgL

Gillian Anderson (@GillianA) May 21, 2016

She seems to just be joking around, but if you check out the replies, a lot of people want to believe are very supportive of the Jane Bond idea. (Maybe David Duchovny could play the new Bond girl.)

But that's Gillian's fans -- hardcore 007 fans probably feel differently, considering there was outcry »

Bond... Jane Bond? X-Files Star Gillian Anderson Responds To Being Fan-Cast As The Next 007

22 May 2016 4:41 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Though we still don't have official confirmation that Daniel Craig is done with Bond, that's what is now widely being reported. Following the rumor, fans took to Twitter with the #NextBond hashtag to show their support for the actor they believe would be the best possible replacement. The usual suspects such as Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston obviously got a lot of love, but there were also actresses like Emily Blunt and Gillian Anderson in the mix. The latter got in on the action by posting a fan-made image of herself as James Jane Bond, which you can see below. It's Bond. Jane Bond. Thanks for all the votes! (And sorry, don't know who made poster but I love it!) #NextBond pic.twitter.com/f8GC4ZuFgL — Gillian Anderson (@GillianA) May 21, 2016 Obviously this is no indication that Anderson will be considered, but it's cool to know that she has some interest at least. »

Universal Outlines A Robert Ludlum Cinematic Universe – Starting With The Janson Directive

19 May 2016 9:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Janson Directive is a film adaptation that was announced in September 2014, but hasn’t progressed much further in the intervening period. Until now, it was most notable for being yet another movie with franchise potential to be stacked on the slate of the increasingly busy Dwayne Johnson. Universal just turned up the heat on the project, however, by detailing how it will become the foundation of a brand new cinematic universe.

The book from which The Janson Directive will be adapted is by legendary author Robert Ludlum – who also created the Jason Bourne series. According to the book synopsis, there are also vast similarities between the Bourne and Janson tales.

“When billionaire philanthropist Peter Novak is kidnapped by a terrorist known as The Caliph, it’s up to Paul Janson — a legend in the notorious U.S. covert agency Consular Operations — to save him. But Janson’s rescue operation goes horribly wrong… »

Chloë Sevigny Talks Sexual Harassment in Hollywood, Knocks ‘The Huntsman’

18 May 2016 7:36 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three major directors “crossed the line” with Chloë Sevigny in auditions for film roles, the actress said at a Cannes Film Festival panel on Wednesday.

“I’ve had the ‘what are you doing after this?’ conversation,” Sevigny said. “I’ve also had the ‘do you want to go shopping and try on some clothes and, like, I can buy you something in the dressing room’ [conversation],” she added. “Just like crossing the line weirdness.”

At another point, the actress remembered, a director told her, “‘You should show your body off more. You shouldn’t wait until you’re as old as this certain actress who had just been naked in a film, you should be naked on screen now.'”

Sevigny, whose credits include such sexually explicit films as “Kids” and “The Brown Bunny,” had a quick retort.

“If you know my career, I’ve been naked in every movie,” she said with a laugh. »

Simon Kinberg Gives 'Gambit' Update

15 May 2016 1:39 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

FlickeringMyth.com recently sat down for an interview with producer Simon Kinberg during the "X-men: Apocalypse" press junket. During the interview, Kinberg gave a status update on the solo "Gambit" film which will star Channing Tatum and be directed by Doug Liman

20th Century Fox first announced "Gambit" before summer 2015 with Channing Tatum attached to star and director Rupert Wyatt who directed Fox's "Planet Of The Apes" reboot, "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes." Wyatt eventually dropped out due to creative differences and the studio looked for a replacement in the form of Doug Liman, who made the underrated sci-fi film, "Edge Of Tomorrow", starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt

Production for "Gambit” has stalled quite a bit with the hiring of a new director and script changes, but Kinberg assures us that the film is still in development.

On the subject of script rewrites, Kinberg said:

Anne Hathaway Makes Her First Stunning Red Carpet Appearance Since Having Her Baby

13 May 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Since giving birth to a baby boy in April, Anne Hathaway has been looking absolutely radiant, and her latest appearance is no exception. The actress arrived at an event for her upcoming movie, Alice Through the Looking Glass, on Thursday while arm in arm with her husband, Adam Shulman, and sporting a big grin. This is the first public event Anne has gone to since having her son, Jonathan, and she couldn't have looked more gorgeous in her white dress. After posing for photos with Adam, she made sure to spend some quality time with her Devil Wears Prada costar Emily Blunt, who attended with her own husband, John Krasinski. Sadly, Miranda Priestly was nowhere in sight, but since Anne was wearing florals and it's technically still Spring, it's probably lucky she didn't make it. »

Kristen Stewart Says Snow White Relationship Wasn't the Cause of 'Huntsman' Absence

10 May 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Much gossip was had over Kristen Stewart's time on Snow White and the Huntsman and her absence from its sequel The Huntsman: Winter's War. Now that the film has crashed and burned, Stewart is happy to clear the air on why she wasn't involved. And no, it wasn't her relationship with the director. The Huntsman did surprisingly poor at the box office (it's yet to make back its production budget) considering its star power. Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain and Chris Hemsworth just couldn't revive interest in the franchise that was launched with Twilight star Stewart in the lead. HitFix's Chris Eggertsen even wrote, "Kristen Stewart's absence was the fantasy sequel's greatest weakness." But she wasn't always meant to be missing. In fact, the actor was originally supposed to reprise her role for the sequel. So what happened? She explains in a recent Variety cover story: Stewart »

Producers also brought in Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt to give the movie star power. But critics ravaged the film. ...Read More »

Is Emily Carmichael Helming "Captain Marvel"?

7 May 2016 12:14 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A several week old Instagram photo of indie filmmaker and animator Emily Carmichael has become a speculated about potential clue as to who might direct the standalone "Captain Marvel" film at Marvel Studios and Disney Pictures.

A few weeks back came a report from The Wrap's Jeff Sneider which suggested that both the actress cast in the title role and the film's director share the same first name, and that the leading actress cast in the part is someone we've all heard rumored in the past.

To date, the only credible reports have suggested Emily Blunt for the role, and so it wasn't long before "Penny Arcade" web series director Emily Carmichael came up as a potential. That was soon followed by "Captain Marvel" screenwriter Nicole Perlman following Carmichael on Twitter, and said Instagram photo by Carmichael which reportedly included the caption "on my way to a Disney meeting" before »

Could Emily Carmichael Be Directing Captain Marvel?

7 May 2016 12:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Captain America who? Even with Civil War just hitting theaters this weekend, some in the superhero news community are already looking ahead to another buzzy Marvel movie that (barring any tiny easter eggs I may have missed during my screening) went entirely un-teased in Civil War: Phase Three entry Captain Marvel.

Marvel bigwig Kevin Feige has stated that news about a director and actor for the highly anticipated Marvel entry, which will be its first to revolve around a female hero, will drop this summer, but that’s not keeping the rumor mill in check. A few weeks ago, Jeff Sneider of TheWrap reported that he was hearing there was some truth to popular buzz about a certain actress being in contention for the leading role, and that Marvel was looking at a director who shared the same first name.

With that in mind, Screen Geek did some digging, focusing »
