Idris Elba Wanted as the Next James Bond?

19 December 2014 3:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After Sony Pictures canceled the release of their comedy The Interview, the hacker group G.O.P. seemed to indicate that the copious leaks of Sony emails and documents would stop, if they never release the movie. However, since there were so many leaks from the studio, more news has surfaced, with The Daily Beast uncovering an email from Sony's Amy Pascal, where she states that Idris Elba should be the next actor to play James Bond. The January 4, 2014 email was between Amy Pascal and Elizabeth Cantillon, a former executive for Columbia Pictures, which distributes the 007 movies, although no further details were released.

Idris Elba himself revealed during a Reddit Ama that he would "absolutely" play James Bond, if he was ever offered the role, but this is the first we're hearing about Sony executives expressing their interest in the actor. The current 007, Daniel Craig, is currently under contract for »

What the Hell Should We Call the New Divergent Movie?

12 December 2014 12:45 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Readers, we are in peril. The promotional campaign for the second film in the Divergent film series is ramping up, and we have no idea what to call the dang thing. The problem started with author Veronica Roth, who gave each title in her dystopian trilogy a different rhyming name: Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant. This isn't too uncommon in Ya series — Twilight and The Hunger Games did the same thing — since the books will all live next to each other on shelves, but it won't do for films. That's why we've ended up with our multiplexes swamped by a tsunami of colons: Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. (Think of how the Bond franchise would have turned out had it began today; we'd all be going to see James Bond: Casino Royale Part II: Quantum of Solace.)By modern movie-title logic, »

Why Marvel Studios owes James Bond

7 December 2014 10:58 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…

With Star Wars and Jurassic World the previous week, the past seven days has revealed the cast for Bond 24, aka Spectre, alongside confirmation that Ryan Reynolds will return in the standalone X-Men movie Deadpool. We knew 2015 was going to be busy, but now we are seeing a hint of the future. I doubt we will leave the cinema from May through to December! Nevertheless, Variety connected the dots between 007 and Marvel:

Since Marvel Studios started producing its own films and TV shows, Hydra has served as a heavy in “Captain America,” “The Avengers” and on ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” … It’s hard not to ignore the timing of the decision to re-introduce Spectre on the big screen.

Bond 24: Could Quantum's Mr White return in Spectre?

6 December 2014 10:05 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jesper Christensen has dropped a hint that he could be returning for new James Bond movie Spectre.

Euroman (via Empire) is reporting that Christensen's Mr White will appear in the movie.

"I am looking forward to working with Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig," Christensen is quoted as saying. "It is a truly exciting script and a very capable team. So it'll be fun."

Mr White was last seen in Quantum of Solace escaping an interrogation in the tunnels underneath Siena as Bond (Craig) and M (Judi Dench) tried to find out more about the shadowy organisation Quantum.

Bond producers last year acquired the full Bond movie rights - granting them licence to use Spectre and characters such as iconic villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld in future movies - after a lengthy legal battle.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Christoph Waltz will play a character named Oberhauser, thought to be the film's villain. »

Spectre Is Bringing Back This James Bond Villain

5 December 2014 1:07 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When Daniel Craig first stepped into the tuxedo of James Bond in Casino Royale, he faced off against a classic Bond villain straight out of the books. However, due to the legendary rights issues between Eon Productions and writer Kevin McClory, a new super villain agency had to be created to begin terrorizing the new Bond, and its name was Quantum. However,Quantum Of Solace's less than stellar response meant that the agency of evil wouldn't show up in Skyfall, leaving loose ends like the fate of Jesper Christensen's Mr. White up in the open. At least, it was open until now. Screen Rant picked up on an interview that Christensen had conducted with Euroman magazine, and he's apparently very hopeful that Mr. White will be coming back for Spectre. In fact, going by the statement he gave Euroman (included below,) he seems to have some knowledge that »

Quantum’s Mr. White Is Returning for 'Spectre'

5 December 2014 11:59 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

After the wealth of information that was released about the new Bond film, one thing was left without any answers: With the imminent return of Spectre, Bond’s eternal arch nemesis, will Quantum be part of it or just completely forgotten? For the ones that don’t remember, Quantum was the organization behind Vesper’s death in Casino Royale and it was prominently featured in the sequel Quantum of Solace where Bond had to stop them from acquiring the rights for the water in Bolivia. For all intents and purposes, Quantum served as a stand-in for Spectre as some rights issues prevented the producers to use it. However, now that the rights have been cleared, the question about Quantum’s relevance in the new Bond canon was left up in the air. 

Fortunately, it seems that Quantum and Spectre will be somewhat linked as Jesper Christensen, who played the villainous Mr. »

New Bond Movie ‘Spectre’ to Bring Back Quantum Agent Mr. White

5 December 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

2012′s Skyfall made it easy to forget Quantum of Solace ever existed. Not only did it blow the previous installment out of the water, it made nary a reference to the plotline from the last film. That was just fine with some James Bond fans, who regarded Quantum of Solace as a low point in […]

10 Things You Need To Know About Spectre

5 December 2014 9:32 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony

Going back to the well can be an invigorating thing. Struggling to make James Bond relevant in the 21st century – partly, in the words of Daniel Craig, “because Mike Myers fucked us” – Eon Productions decided to start from scratch. They tossed out nearly a half century of 007 films, and all the expectations and tropes that went along with that, in favour of bringing a leaner, meaner agent more in line with the character from Ian Fleming’s books.

Choosing to adapt the first novel, Casino Royale, was a statement of intent: they were throwing out all that continuity (at least, the loose continuity that existed between the Bond films as it was), and beginning again. And for a while, it was good.

Going back to the well can hamper things, though. When it came to follow up Casino Royale, they leant a little too heavily on the former film’s nosedive into Bourne territory, »

Quantum Of Solace Star On Board For Sam Mendes’ Spectre

5 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After much speculation and debate across the four corners of the Internet, Sony Pictures and MGM announced the title and the leading cast members of Sam Mendes’ upcoming Bond 24 just yesterday, which is now known as Spectre.

But one facet that rose to the fore shortly after the special event was that the 24th installment in the celebrated spy series would see the return of Jesper Christensen’s Mr. White, who had a role in both Casino Royale and its middling follow-up, Quantum of Solace.

The actor confirmed the news to Euroman, hinting that Spectre could have ties to the Quantum storyline found in Daniel Craig’s first two outings as Bond, though we’ll just have to wait patiently until the film’s 2016 release to know for sure.

“I am looking forward to working with Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig. It is a truly exciting script and a very capable team. »

'Bond 24': Will Villain Mr. White Return in 'Spectre'?

5 December 2014 7:29 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, Eon, MGM and Sony Announced the official cast of Bond 24, which is titled Spectre. While the movie will include new and old characters alike, one name the press release failed to mention was the villainous Mr. White. In an interview with Euroman, actor Jesper Christensen claims he will reprise the character from Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace for some unfinished business in this latest 007 adventure.

The Spectre title indicates that James Bond will be battling the evil organization that has haunted the 007 franchise for decades, going all the way back to Sean Connery's time with the series. But that doesn't necessarily mean the story lines set up in the previous three Daniel Craig Bond movies will be abandoned altogether. Mr. White is one of those loose ends that may finally be tied up in Spectre. About returning, Jesper Christensen states:

Quantum Villain Joins "Spectre" Cast?

5 December 2014 7:22 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With the reboot of the Bond franchise in "Casino Royale," one of the key elements introduced was hints of an unnamed Spectre-style organisation. The sequel "Quantum of Solace" then expanded on that, giving them the name Quantum and revealing them to be an apolitical group of politicians, key businessmen and spies.

By the end of that film though, three of the groups key leaders had been exposed, another dead, and another operative captured. While the organisation wasn't gone, it was left crippled - enough that several years later the characters in "Skyfall" made no mention of them.

Of course some fans, especially those who only came onboard with the Craig-era Bond, were left unhappy by the way "Skyfall" seemed to avoid mentioning Quantum. While 'Solace' was promoted on the fact that it was a direct sequel to 'Royale', "Skyfall" deliberately went the standalone route despite being a part of »

Quantum Agent Mr. White to Return for New James Bond Film Spectre

5 December 2014 6:19 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yesterday, Sony Pictures announced that the 24th James Bond film was entitled Spectre, and would star returning cast members Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Rory Kinnear along with newcomers Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott, and Monica Bellucci.  However, it turns out one name was left off the list: Jesper Christensen, who played the Quantum agent Mr. White in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. Hit the jump for more.  Spectre is set to open in the U.K. on October 23, 2015 and in the U.S. on November 6, 2015. Since Quantum of Solace was a bad, forgettable movie, you may not recall that Mr. White was able to escape following his "enhanced interrogation", and remains at large.  If I recall correctly, the word "Quantum" wasn't even mentioned in Skyfall, which was probably for the best since audiences didn’t really take to the shadowy organization »

Jesper Christensen's 'Mr. White' Will Return In Spectre

5 December 2014 3:49 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It seems the criminal organization known as Quantum will not be completely written out of future Bond movies after all. When there was no mention in Skyfall, many thought this plotline was to be abandoned, but Jesper Christiansen's return as Quantum liaison Mr. White appears to contradict that. While speaking to Euroman, the actor confirmed that he'd be reprising the role. "I am looking forward to working with Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig. It is a truly exciting script and a very capable team. So it'll be fun...". Christiansen debuted as White in Casino Royale, and then was last seen making his escape through the tunnels beneath Siena in Quantum Of Solace with the aid of M's double-agent bodyguard, Mitchell. Is 007 going to have to content with both Spectre and Quantum in his next outing? We'll find out when Spectre goes on general release November 6, 2015. The movie will »

Mr White Will Return In Spectre

5 December 2014 2:36 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Those of you who were quick to lament that the return of Spectre might mean the continuing abandonment of Quantum can now take heart. He was missing from Thursday's official unveiling of the 24th Bond movie, but Jesper Christensen has confirmed that he will be returning to the role of Mr. White in the new film.Mr White was the liaison for the mysterious criminal organisation Quantum in both Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace. Last we saw of him, he was having his enjoyment of Tosca interrupted.After that, the rest was silence, and there was nary a mention of Quantum or White in Skyfall. But, says Christensen now, "I am looking forward to working with Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig. It is a truly exciting script and a very capable team. So it'll be fun..."
