Yash Raj Films’ Tiger Zinda Hai has been shooting in scenic locales of Tyrol, Austria currently. The film’s unit has wrapped up shooting in a historic, quaint and visually stunning town for a song with Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. Interestingly, this town is a favourite of epic Hollywood productions.
Featured in Bond flicks Spectre and Quantum of Solace, Golden Roof has gothic architecture unique, and not seen anywhere else in the world. The town gets it uncommon name from sun rays shining on its bronze, metallic and in a few cases, gold encrusted rooftops of homes and the city centre. Overlooked by majestic Alpine peaks, this rare gem of a town adds charm to the scenic beauty of Tyrol province, which also boasts of the beautiful university city of Innsbruck.
The portion shot at Golden Roof with Salman and Katrina is expected to be a big visual attraction in the film, »

As announced last year (when the project was delayed once again), Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Adam Driver is set to take on the lead role originally portrayed by Johnny Depp in the abandoned 2000 version. However, it seems that Gilliam regular Jonathan Pryce (Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) will now take on the role of Quixote, replacing Michael Palin (who himself replaced John Hurt, Robert Duvall and Jean Rochefort).
Joining Driver and Pryce in the cast are Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Joana Ribeiro (A Uma Hora Incerta), Eva Basteiro-Bertoli (Black Bread) and Rossy de Palma (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown).
Here’s the official synopsis for the project, »

We still don’t know whether Daniel Craig will be returning as 007 in Bond 25, but it seems that screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are officially on board for the next instalment of the long-running spy series, according to Baz Bamigboye of The Daily Mail.

Purvis and Wade have been ever-presents in the Bond franchise since 1999’s The World Is Not Enough, contributing to the scripts for Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre (the duo initially announced they would not be working on Spectre, but were ultimately brought in to polish John Logan’s screenplay).

It always seems like quite the struggle to get every third film in the James Bond franchise underway. After the lukewarm reception of 2008’s Quantum of Solace, the production of Skyfall was suspended for a while due to MGM’s own financial issues in 2010, and now on the heels of another lukewarm film in Spectre, it seems pretty slow going for the project.
Of course, one of the chief questions from all of this has been the involvement of Daniel Craig. The dude made no attempt to hide his disdain at the time for playing the shallow MI6 agent. During the promotion circuit, he famously stated he would rather slash his wrists than do another Bond film. That was comment that was slightly taken out of context. Craig likely meant he didn’t want to go immediately from one film to the next, and that he was and in later interviews, »

According to the Daily Mail, Bond scriptwriters, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have been approached yet again to pen the script for the next Bond outing which is yet to be given a title, and maybe a lead actor.

Official links to the duo, such as the writers agency Casarotto Ramsey and Associates or Eon productions (who produce the 007 films) , have not commented or confirmed on this story either way, so for the time being, this is all speculation for the six-time Bond writers. However with talks like this in the air it is a guarantee that the ball has started to roll on getting the Bond 25 up and running.

It is still a little unclear exactly who is going to be playing James Bond in the next edition of the classic spy franchise, but James Bond 25 has just taken a very reassuring step forward. The writing duo of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have signed on to write the next movie, who also wrote Spectre and several other Bond movies. When it comes to Daniel Craig and whether or not he'll be back with a Walther Ppk in his hand and a mission on his mind, that's another story.
The news comes courtesy of journalist Baz Bamigboye, who writes for The Daily Mail. He took to his Twitter account recently to declare that Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have officially signed on to write the follow-up to Spectre. That should be somewhat assuring to long-time 007 fans, as they have been a staple of the franchise since The World is Not Enough »
It’s Friday and I’m feeling a bit salty, so here’s a hot take: the only great James Bond movie Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have written is “Casino Royale.” The duo have been franchise mainstays, penning the last half dozen 007 adventures (“The World Is Not Enough,” “Die Another Day,” “Casino Royale,” “Quantum Of Solace,” “Skyfall,” “Spectre“), and clearly producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G.

According to a report relayed by the Daily Mail, Purvis and Wade have been officially approached to pen the next installment in the iconic spy series, which would take their total James Bond tally to seven following work on Spectre, Skyfall, Quantum of Solace, Casino Royale, Die Another Day and The World Is Not Enough. While unconfirmed, recruiting Purvis and Wade for James Bond’s next globetrotting mission certainly makes a lot of sense – even if Quantum of Solace and Spectre failed to resonate with critics quite like Skyfall and the rather excellent Casino Royale.
The big question now is, of course, whether Daniel Craig will pick up the license to kill for a fifth (and final?) time. Co-star Naomie Harris believes there’s a “very good chance” that Craig will get back in the hot seat, »

Frequent James Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are gearing up to write the next Bond film, according to a report in The Daily Mail. The screenwriting pair are frequent collaborators with the 007 franchise, having penned many Bond pics including Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre, the latter of which they boarded at a later stage after scribe John Logan had written an original draft. Purvis and Wade, their reps at Casarotto Ramsay & Associates… »
After an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the world’s leaders came together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. But now, something has gone wrong—the system built to protect the Earth is attacking it, and it’s a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything…and everyone along with it.
Dean Devlin (writer/producer, “Independence Day”) makes his feature film directorial debut with suspense thriller Geostorm, starring Gerard Butler (“Olympus Has Fallen,” “300”), Jim Sturgess (“Cloud Atlas”), Abbie Cornish (“Limitless”), Alexandra Maria Lara (“Rush”), Daniel Wu (“The Man with the Iron Fists,” “Warcraft: The Beginning”), with Oscar nominees Ed Harris (“The Hours,” “Apollo 13”) and Andy Garcia (“The Godfather: Part III »

The owners of the James Bond franchise have made a multi-year licensing deal with gambling products specialist Scientific Games Corp., which will lead to the super-spy’s image being used on casino slot machines.
The exclusive agreement was announced Wednesday between Scientific Games with Eon Productions Limited, Danjaq LLC and MGM Interactive, a subsidiary of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The deal gives Scientific Games the rights to leverage all past and future James Bond films, as well as the film’s talent portraying James Bond.
Scientific Games said it expects to showcase the first James Bond-themed slot games at the Global Gaming Expo on Oct. 3-5 in Las Vegas. That means the first machines could begin appearing in casinos next year.

After showing us some of the deadly effects of a worldwide manmade storm with several teasers yesterday, Warner Bros. and Skydance have unteathered the full trailer for the intense new thriller Geostorm. And it's like watching all of your favorite disaster movies put in a blender and served on puree. It's an incredible blast of destruction that should keep fans of films like Independence Day and 2012 incredibly happy this fall. Trust us when we say, it does not disappoint on that level.

It took more than a decade of grinding it out both on television and at the movies, but David Harbour finally got the due he deserved and a helluva a role in last year’s breakout Netflix hit, “Stranger Things.” As a result, more doors are likely opening for the actor, though he’s no stranger to blockbusters, having popped up in “Suicide Squad,” “The Green Hornet,” “Quantum Of Solace,” and “The Equalizer.” Still, none of those projects are “Deadpool 2.”

It’s now been well over a year since the last James Bond film, Spectre, hit theaters and we still haven’t heard much about the next entry yet. Bond 25, as it’s being called, is being shrouded in much secrecy (which isn’t terribly surprising), so much so that we can’t even say for certain whether or not Daniel Craig will be back to reprise the role. He’s bounced back and forth on the issue more times than we can count, or keep track of, and it seems that he always has a different answer whenever asked about it.
The actor doesn’t seem ready to make his mind up at the moment but if we’re to believe his co-star Naomie Harris, Craig won’t be going anywhere when it comes time to make the next James Bond movie. She recently spoke with the BBC »

Film marketing veteran Tommy Gargotta, most recently head of marketing for the Relativity EuropaCorp Distribution venture, has joined the Fox broadcast network in a senior marketing post.
Gargotta will serve as exec VP of creative marketing, reporting to Fox chief marketing officer Angela Courtin. Courtin joined Fox from Relativity nearly two years ago.
Gargotta will oversee the on-air promotion and design departments for Fox, extending beyond the network to print, digital and outdoor venues. He’s taking on a newly created position.
“Tommy is one of the most creative marketers in the business,” said Courtin. “His extensive experience, passion for marketing and sharp creative eye make him the perfect person to develop strategic campaigns for our breakthrough shows and amplify all of the innovation happening right now throughout Fox.”
Gargotta was named president of theatrical marketing for Relativity EuropaCorp in March 2015. That entity is essentially defunct given Relativity’s dire straits. In »

We still don’t know if he’ll be picking up the Walther Ppk for another outing, but as of today Daniel Craig has officially became the second-longest serving James Bond, having spent 4,147 consecutive days in the role, leaving him second only to Roger Moore on 5,118.

The ranking, compiled by the Press Association, begins from the day each actor was announced as 007 through to the day their successor is officially named.
Daniel Craig made his debut as Bond in 2006’s Casino Royale, and has since followed that up with Quantum of Solace, Spectre and Skyfall. Should he remain in the role for another 971 days, he would officially take the crown as the longest serving 007.

Iam Fleming's James Bond novels still have narratives and ideas that haven't made it to the 007 movie series...
A spoiler lies ahead for Spectre

Over the course of 11 years, Ian Fleming wrote 12 James Bond novels and nine short stories before his death in 1964, forming the basis for the film series which survives to the present day. 24 films and 55 years since the birth of the cinematic Bond, it might come as a surprise that the franchise hasn’t completely exhausted its source material. More often than not, however, the James Bond films have been adaptations in name only.
Starting with Roald Dahl’s outlandish screenplay for the fifth Bond film, You Only Live Twice, the film scripts began to drift away from their literary inspirations. For most of Roger Moore’s seven-film tenure, for example, entire plots and characters were »
