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.

Belvedere Vodka has announced a collaboration with new James Bond movie Spectre.
The company will release two limited edition bottles in celebration of the company's partnership with the upcoming film.
Belvedere's Silver Sabre bottles will also feature a new 007 twist as part of the campaign, which will be launched in February 2015.
Professor James Chapman, author of the cultural history of James Bond Licence to Thrill, said: "Bond's drinking habits have always been a central aspect of the James Bond lifestyle.
"Fleming's Bond famously invented the 'Vesper' martini in Casino Royale, and the vodka martini was there for special occasions such as his dinner at M's club Blades (Moonraker) and his sumptuous dinner with American millionaire Mr Du Pont (Goldfinger). And of course, a world-class super villain such as Dr No would not dream of serving anything else.

Following up on last week’s formal unveiling, we knew that Sam Mendes and Co. were due to enter production today as filming began on Spectre, and now, we have the first unofficial set video, which has appeared online along with a few screenshots.
While brief in length, the footage showcases Bond riding along the River Thames in London with Rory Kinnear’s MI6 agent as the pair head towards the company’s secretive headquarters, which was the subject of a terrorist attack during the events of Skyfall. It’s understood that London is but one of many locations that will host the 24th installment in the long-running spy franchise, with Spectre also set to shoot in Rome, Mexico City, Tangier, Sölden and Obertilliach.
However, as with all Sony properties of late, Mendes’ continuation proved to be the victim of a mammoth hack, which revealed that the budget for Spectre had ballooned past $300 million. »

The Daily Mail has a series of photos showing Daniel Craig on the Thames en route to the real MI6 HQ to film sequences for the new 007 film "Spectre". Craig appears to be having a ball riding a high speed vessel in the company of his co-star Rory Kinnear, who plays the role of fellow agent Bill Tanner.
The article also reveals that, in the wake of the devastating Sony hack scandal, the script is being re-written even as filming is underway, which is not a situation most filmmakers want to contend with. However, Sony and Eon Productions confirmed that an earlier draft of the script that gave away key plot spoilers has been leaked to the web. To ensure that moviegoers don't have the experience of seeing the new film ruined in advance of its premiere next November, the producers have brought in other writers, including "Edge of Tomorrow" scribe Jez Butterworth, »

The James Bond franchise is the UK’s cinematic gift to the world. Like its titular hero, the franchise has remained death-defying over the course of five decades and 24 feature films. Daniel Craig’s tenure as 007 has been a stellar run, bringing the series roaring back to life.
The first two Craig features revitalized Bond for a modern audience that pined for a grittier, more realistic super spy franchise in the vein of Jason Bourne and Batman Begins. Craig’s third Bond outing, the excellent Skyfall, retained the grit, but also restored the flare and panache that had been a hallmark of the Bond series since its inception.
Skyfall director Sam Mendes seems to be hearkening back to the classic Bond era with his next entry in the franchise, Spectre. For fans familiar with old school Bond, the title promises 007 squaring off against his most legendary adversaries, a nefarious »

According to CNN (via Variety), there’s been some conflict between MGM Studios and producer Barbara Broccoli with regards to the film’s budget, which has been set at more than $300 million. Apparently MGM chief Jonathan Glickman has urged Broccoli to cut costs, with measures to reduce the budget such as swapping scenes set in Rome for London, using three carriages for a train sequence rather than four, dropping a “dramatic finale in the rain [to] lower the cost of visual/special effects, and showcasing the modern aspects of Mexico as an “incentive” to the Mexican market. However, Broccoli refused to budge, prompting Amy Pascal to contact Glickman stating »

Variety reports that the new Bond film could cost over $300 million.
In fact, a memo they've received indicates the film's budget "sits in the mid $300 million" range - a big jump from the $210 million (pre-tax breaks) that "Skyfall" cost to make, and the biggest single budget for a film in history ("Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" holds the record at an even $300 million). Understandably it seems the producers are looking at ways to trim costs.
Amongst the cost cutting measures are shooting a nighttime scene in London instead of Rome, adjusting the finale's location and setting in Mexico to better highlight the more modern aspects of the country, and cutting back on the number of carriages used in a train sequence. »
