Spotlight on the Stars: Pierce Brosnan

27 August 2014 2:10 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a go a bit old school and take a look at an A-lister who’s been around for a while now…Pierce Brosnan. A very charming actor, he went from being well known and well liked on television to a mega star when he became one of the notable few ever to essay the role of secret agent 007 in the James Bond franchise. Brosnan has also been one of the more successful post Bond actors, doing his best not to be defined by the iconic role. As such, he’s retained that A-list status and is well deserving of today’s spotlight piece. Here we go! Brosnan had his beginnings on television, in made for TV movies and bit parts, before he became a known commodity with his series Remington Steele. That show made him a small screen star (and »

26 August 2014 3:09 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Rumor: Sam Mendes Wants Léa Seydoux for Bond 24

8 August 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The folks behind Bond 24 had a tough time with that script.  Even though Neal Purvis and Robert Wade opted out of the 24th installment after working on The World Is Not EnoughDie Another DayCasino RoyaleQuantum of Solace, and Skyfall, back in June, news broke that the duo would actually return to do some work on John Logan’s Bond 24 script, specifically stepping to give it some “punch.”  However, it turns out, giving it a little punch might have been a bit of an understatement. Even though it’s being reported that Logan’s script was in really bad shape, apparently they’ve fixed it up enough now to move forward with casting because there’s a rumor out there that Sam Mendes has his eye on Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Color) to star opposite Daniel Craig in the film.  Hit the jump for »

Lea Seydoux and Sam Smith wanted for Bond 24; script gets another “polish”

8 August 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Just last week, Baz Bamigboye over at The Daily Mail reported that John Logan, who co-wrote Skyfall back in 2012, had been moved aside from his work on Bond 24 so that franchise veterans Robert Wade and Neal Purvis (The World Is Not Enough, Casino Royale) could come in and help add some much needed “thrills” to the script.

Directed again by Sam Mendes, it is rumoured that the original version of Bond 24 wasn’t up to scratch, and that the work that the Bond veterans are currently doing on it will be “substantially different” to what has been contributed by Logan. However, whatever issues with the script there may be, the producers are still set for filming, which is set to go ahead in November or December this year.

Of course, with filming set to begin before the year is out, it also means that casting rumours are sure »

Rumor: Léa Seydoux Sought For 'Bond 24'; Script Gets Overhaul To Add More "Thrills"

8 August 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"I am just hammering it [the script] out now. It’s gruelling but it’s fun,” director Sam Mendes said last month at a Films Without Borders event at Windsor Castle, talking about the "Skyfall" followup (via Screen Daily). But it turns out the process of finishing that screenplay was more arduous than expected. Baz Bamigboye reported last week that after being pushed aside for John Logan, "Skyfall" writers and franchise veterans Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (who also penned "The World Is Not Enough," "Die Another Day," "Casino Royale," and "Quantum Of Solace") answered a "five-alarm call" to come in and punch up Logan's work and add more "thrills." The script was reportedly in such bad shape that Purvis and Wade's work is "substantially different" than what Logan brought to the table. But it seems whatever issues there were have been rectified, and filming has been given »

ITV's Gladiators: where are they now?

3 August 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Have you ever wondered what Jet, Wolf, and the rest of ITV's Gladiators did after the show finished? Wonder no more...

ITV’s Gladiators - the show that for eight years made children everywhere become interested in sports, eating well and keeping fit... for about five minutes on a Saturday night, then we all went back to our natural state of sitting on the settee eating sugar straight from the packet.

What was it that inspired this minor surge of enthusiasm for being buff? That would be the gladiators themselves. Every week, twelve superhuman powerhouses - six men and six women - would intimidate, bully, and otherwise humiliate whichever puny contestants stepped up to try their luck, beating or hindering them in a series of physical skill games. This took place before the big finale – where the contenders would race each other up a downwards escalator, while the gladiators were »

'Bond 24' Eyes Rome for Epic Car Chase

23 July 2014 3:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even though production has been delayed on Bond 24 until December, the producers are still working to secure locations for the new 007 adventure. MI6 reports that Luciano Sovena, the new head of the Lazio Film Commission, has met with Bond 24 to secure an important shoot in Rome for an action-packed car chase.

Here's what Luciano Sovena had to say to members of the Italian press, although it's clear that nothing is finalized yet.

"I met the producers of the Bond series, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, and we discussed the project. One of the key scenes, among the most spectacular in the film, will be a car chase in Via Quattro Fontane. I'm already excited. I hope that the City streamlines the procedures for the granting of permits, it would be a shame to miss this great opportunity because of the bureaucracy."

The Via Quattro Fontane translates into The Four Fountains, »

Neal Purvis & Robert Wade Reportedly Back For Bond 24

29 June 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

So far, the Making Of story around Bond 24 has been one of changes and turnabouts, and it appears at least one more twist has appeared in the tale. According to Baz Bamigboye, veteran Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have been drafted in to punch up John Logan’s script for the new movie.The pair appeared to have been dumped back in late 2012 when it was announced that Logan, who co-wrote Skyfall across different drafts to the pair, would be tackling both 24 and 25 as a two-part story, though that has apparently since been narrowed down to just one new film. Purvis and Wade, who have been with the franchise since The World Is Not Enough, were reportedly off to pursue other projects, including a job on the TV version of Barbarella for Nicolas Winding Refn.Now, however, there has been a reshuffle on the writing front, with »

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 »

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 »

Screenwriters Purvis And Wade Return To Bond 24

27 June 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It has been a tumultuous time for the James Bond franchise. Questions about directors and screenwriters have abounded, and even when things seem to be solidly in place there is still the chance for upheaval. The latest on the as-yet untitled Bond 24 is the return of screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who are coming back to do some apparently needed work on the script of their Skyfall co-writer, John Logan.

The Purvis and Wade issue began when the pair departed more than a year and a half ago, leaving scriptwriting duties solely to Logan. After some “polite turmoil,” the writers are now back to give some punch to Logan’s script, which just happens to be a reversal of the Skyfall situation, where Logan was brought in to work on their script. Purvis and Wade have been involved in the James Bond franchise since The World Is Not Enough, »

"Bond 24" Production Delay Due To Re-Writes?

27 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have been the early writers on the James Bond film series since 1999's "The World is Not Enough," the pair often doing the initial drafts with other writers like Paul Haggis and John Logan coming in to polish.

It seemed as if the pair were set to retire from the series after handing in their early drafts of "Skyfall," with Logan subsequently taking over the later drafts and was set to handle the upcoming twenty-fourth Bond film solo.

That changed this week. Logan has been working for several months on the script for "Bond 24," and now The Daily Mail reports that Purvis and Wade have been brought in to polish his work. Specifically the duo are being brought back in to "punch up the jokes and add more insight into the past world of James Bond, giving the film a touch of history".
