MGM, Amplify & Stage 6 Films
Shooting begins next month on the still untitled (or at least officially untitled) Bond 24 and from the looks of things, 007 should be prepared to face a familiar foe. According to the Daily Mail, Christoph Waltz, recently cast in the movie as the main villain (could he really have been anything else?), will be portraying the role of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the recurring big baddie from the early Bond novels and films.
The two-time Oscar winner would bring all his European flare to play the devious, cunning foe, famous for his white cat and haunting scar. Sources say Blofeld will be “just as sinister as early incarnations, although a lot less campy” this time around and it will be a rebirth of sorts for Bond’s ultimate nemesis. He hasn’t appeared on screen since he was unceremoniously killed off in the opening title sequence of 1981’s For Your Eyes Only. »

Earlier this month it was reported that two-time Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained) is wanted for the main villain role in Bond 24, and now The Daily Mail is claiming that Waltz is set to play 007’s arch-enemy Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
According to the paper, Eon “will announce the star is playing an unknown character called Franz Oberhauser, son of the late Hans Oberhauser, a ski instructor who acted as a father figure to Bond. But senior sources believe the casting is a double bluff worthy of 007 himself and that Waltz is actually playing Blofeld.” They go on to quote an unnamed source as stating that: “Christoph Waltz is playing Blofeld in the next Bond film. The tone of the 007 films has changed significantly in recent years and the producers have changed the character to fit in with the new-look 007.”
If true, Waltz will join actors Donald Pleasance, »

2012’s Skyfall was almost certainly one of the best entries in the James Bond franchise to date (if not the best), but it looks like returning director Sam Mendes may be upping the ante in the follow-up. Skyfall was a successful attempt at melding the legacy of the Bond franchise with its most recent Daniel Craig-fronted iteration, as the story simultaneously addressed how a person like James Bond fits into the modern landscape while also referencing some of the series’ most notable hallmarks. With the ending of Skyfall acting as a mild reset to the goings-on at Mi 6, a new rumor now claims that Mendes might be resurrecting one of the most famous Bond villains of all with actor Christoph Waltz’s role in the upcoming Bond 24: Ernst Stavro Blofeld. More after the jump. Just a little over a year ago, we learned that a decades-long legal »

The 24th installment of James Bond is getting ready to start shooting early next month at Pinewood Studios in London but The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the production will move to Rome early next year to film some key scenes.
Bond 24 will be the fourth installment starring Daniel Craig as the titular character. He previously appeared as the British agent in Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008) and Skyfall (2012) (which received critical acclaim and grossed over $1 billion at the box office). Skyfall’s director Sam Mendes is also helming this new installment.
The plot is being kept under wraps but the key scenes involving Rome are said to be several nighttime high-speed car chases and one involving Bond parachuting from a helicopter. Italian news agency Ansa also reported that some scenes are going to be shoot outside of Rome, in the region of Campania. Production in Rome will run »

Just weeks after we reported that Christoph Waltz is playing the main villain in Bond 24, The Daily Mail claims that the actor is actually playing the classic James Bond nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld in this highly-anticipated sequel.
Eon Productions is expected to confirm Christoph Waltz's casting during a press conference to be held in the first week of December. At that time, they will announce that the actor is playing Franz Oberhauser, son of the late Hans Oberhauser, a ski instructor who was a father figure to 007 (Daniel Craig). However, one unidentified source claims that the announcement will be a misdirect, and that Christoph Waltz is actually playing Blofeld.
"Christoph Waltz is playing Blofeld in the next Bond film. The tone of the 007 films has changed significantly in recent years and the producers have changed the character to fit in with the new-look 007."

We're almost at the end of 2014, which means we're long overdue when it comes to marketing the movies of summer 2015. Today, Warner Bros. has released the first Pan images along with what's sure to be the first of 197 character posters. The film "tells the untold story of how a young orphan boy from London is spirited away to the magical Neverland where he finds great adventures that shape him into the hero known to generations as Peter Pan." These images show us not only Levi Miller as Pan, but also Hugh Jackman as the villainous Blackbeard, and um…well…yeah. None of these images are too encouraging, but I have faith in director Joe Wright. While he does have a tendency to go overboard in his staging and visuals, his past work promises we're not going to get a run-of-the-mill Peter Pan story even though I was never all that »

Sam Mendes' Skyfall featured many international locations. Some scenes were shot in Macau, Turkey, and China. For his next Bond film, Mendes and his production crew are headed to Rome, Italy. According to the Italian news agency Ansa, Bond 24 will require "three key action scenes" to be filmed in Rome. Details are below. Several night-time high-speed car chases are planned through the historical center’s narrow, winding streets, as well as on main thoroughfare Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, with one car ending up in the Tibur river, it reported. Another high-speed car chase will reportedly result in an iconic Fiat 500 getting crushed in Borgo Vittorio, near the Vatican. And perhaps most memorably, Bond will parachute from a helicopter onto Ponte Sisto, a 15th century pedestrian bridge that connects Trastevere to the center, Ansa said. There will also be scenes filmed at the Royal Palace of Caserta ("Versailles of Italy") in Campania, »
The 24th installment of the James Bond franchise, set to start shooting at Pinewood Shepperton outside of London in the coming weeks, will film some scenes in Rome. It will be Daniel Craig's fourth turn as James Bond after taking the title role in Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall. Sam Mendes is returning to direct. While details are still under wraps, a source confirmed that shooting was planned for Rome. Italian news agency Ansa reported that Rome will host no less than three key action scenes for the upcoming film. Several nighttime high-speed car chases are planned

Just like Jack Sparrow's liver, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise takes a licking and keeps on ticking. The cast is slowly coming together for the fifth movie in the series, and its latest addition seems to be Brenton Thwaites. The young Aussie actor ("The Giver," "Maleficent," the upcoming "Son of a Gun") is reportedly in talks to join the cast as a British soldier named Henry. If he signs on the dotted line, he'll be joining Johnny Depp as Sparrow - or is it Sparrow as Johnny Depp? It's hard to tell the difference any more, what with all the accessories and drunken hijinks.
We're way more excited for the rumor Javier Bardem will join the gang as the villain of the movie, a vengeful ghost named Captain Brand. Bardem is no stranger to creepy characters; he won an Oscar for his performance as Anton Chigurh in "No Country for Old Men, »

The number of wide releases this year that were shot on film amounts to but a handful, and despite heavy advocacy from filmmakers like Christopher Nolan and J.J. Abrams, the format has become an outlier in contrast to the near-universal use of digital. Digital is not inherently a bad format, and some filmmakers like David Fincher are able to take full advantage of the opportunities it provides, but the fear is that the choice over whether a director can shoot on film or digital may be disappearing. That could very well be the case in the near future, but today some relief arrived in the form of news that two highly anticipated upcoming projects will be shooting on film, keeping the format alive for a bit longer: Bond 24 and the new season of Twin Peaks. More after the jump. We’ll start with Bond 24, which marks a curious »

Androids, magic, parallel worlds, ghostly crime, and the apocalypse. Here’s a raft of new forthcoming UK sci-fi and fantasy TV…
The superhero genre may be taking up residence in cinemas for the foreseeable, and Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead are leading Us TV's genre output, but what can fans of UK sci-fi and fantasy look forward to seeing on television over the next year?
There’s Doctor Who of course, which appears to be in rude health and going nowhere, a Christmas Special from Black Mirror, and a hint of new Red Dwarf on its way. (And of course, if there’s anything like justice in the world, the terrific In The Flesh will be recommissioned for a third series.)
If though, you’re thirsting for something new, 2015 is promising to deliver a handful of geek TV gems. We’ve scoured the new UK commission announcements for anything spooky, »
