David Fincher ("Fight Club") recently chatted with the Swedish film site, Afton Bladet (translations via Film Divider), regarding the chances of a sequel to his 2011 film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. "I think because it [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something. The script that we now have a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book." David Fincher It was based on the book by Stieg Larsson, which is part of a trilogy and it starred Rooney Mara ("The Social Network") as Lisbeth Salander and Daniel Craig ("Skyfall") as Mikael Blomkvist. The film pulled in $232 million at the worldwide box office. Fans of the book aren't going to be happy to hear that a sequel will be extremely different from the book as “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and »
Back in June, we reported that production on the highly-anticipated Bond 24 has been pushed to December 2014, with Skyfall co-writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade returning to work on the original script by John Logan. Today, MI6-hq.com reports that shooting has been scheduled to begin on December 6, 2014.
The filmmaker and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are currently casting for the Bond Girl and villain roles. We reported last month that the villain will be a towering man named Hinx, who has been compared to classic James Bond villains Jaws and Oddjob. While several Scandanavian actresses have tested for a secondary roles, the primary Bond Girl will be British.
Production is scheduled to take place in Austria, »
Chalk this one up firmly as a rumour – especially considering its source is the UK tabloid The Sun – but it seems that Daniel Craig (Skyfall) may have shot a secret cameo appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII. Craig reportedly begged director J.J. Abrams for a role in the hotly-anticipated sequel, saying that he’d be happy to have his face hidden, and apparently shot the part this week at Pinewood, where he was spotted with Carrie Fisher. However, a more likely scenario is that Craig was at Pinewood for pre-production on Bond 24, which is set to start shooting this December.
Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release on December 18th 2015 and sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Andy Serkis »

In 2012, Skyfall, the 23rd installment in the long-running James Bond franchise, was one of the year’s biggest successes. Becoming the highest-grossing film in the series (over $1 billion worldwide), director Sam Mendes also delivered one of 007′s finest critical hits, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Bond on film in grand fashion.
As a result, anticipation is higher than ever for James Bond 24. Mendes will be returning to helm the film, which is set for a November 2015 release. It was originally reported that the cast and crew would assemble for principle photography in October of this ...

It looks like the next instalment in the James Bond franchise has a start date, with MI6 reporting that principal photography on the as-yet-untitled Bond 24 will get underway on December 6th, following a script read-through in November.

As yet, there’s been no official word on new additions to the cast, although the producers are apparently seeking a physically imposing henchmen in the vein of Jaws and Oddjob, while the likes of Chiwetel Ejiofor and Lea Seydoux have been linked to roles.

Having gone through another relatively long gap between 007 films, many fans have been waiting for any hint of production news in regards to Bond 24. Well, that wait is nearly over, as we now have word that principle photography for Daniel Craig’s fourth outing as MI6′s premier super spy will begin on December 6, 2014.
Before shooting actually begins, director Sam Mendes will have the main cast together at Pinewood for a table reading of the final script. Casting is not complete yet though, as there are still a few roles that have yet to be filled (or at least announced), including the main Bond girl, the villains, and other feminine interests for 007. That’s quite a bit of casting to wrap up in the next couple months.
We also still have next to nothing in terms of information about the plot of this film, but there have been »

In 2011, David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en) co-wrote and directed an adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s highly acclaimed Swedish crime novel The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo starring Daniel Craig (Skyfall) as troubled journalist-turned-detective Mikael Blomkvist and Rooney Mara (Her) as badass hacker Lisbeth Salander. Despite reaping a tonne of money and award nominations the general consensus is that Sony regarded the movie as a failure.
Speaking recently to the Swedish press while on tour promoting his latest film Gone Girl, David Fincher provided a small update on the proposed sequel The Girl Who Played With Fire: “I think because [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something. The script that we now have [has] a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book.”

American Horror Story: Coven fans who enjoyed renowned Broadway actress Patti LuPone’s turn as the murderous mother next door may be drawn to Season 2 of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful series, as LuPone has been announced to play a key guest-starring role connected to Eva Green’s character.

“The next James Bond? They better hurry up! Yes I would! Who’s doing James Bond now? Daniel Craig! Did they shoot another one? Everybody should tweet Denzel is James Bond! Send it to the studio!” he replied to user BigTalk45. “We start the Denzel is Bond campaign today! James Washington. Denzel Bond!”
Denzel Washing As First Black James Bond?
Like Liam Neeson, Washington has found something of a second career renaissance playing middle-aged action heroes. Washington’s last film Safe House received many comparisons to the Bond franchise among reviewers.
If it turns out that Washington does take on the roll, it would be historical for two reasons. Washington’s casting would make it the first time that Bond has been black and played by an American (Barry Nelson doesn »
Thanks to the latest issue of Empire, we’ve got our first look at Chris Hemsworth in Heart of the Sea, which reunites the star with his Rush director Ron Howard for an adaptation of Nathaniel Philbrick’s bestselling book and tells the true story of the whaling ship Essex, which came under attack from a giant whale (an event which would inspire the book Moby Dick) and left the crew having to resort to cannibalism to stay alive after being stranded at sea for 90 days…

The Toronto International Film Festival is just getting under way, and already distro news has emerged. Deadline is reporting that Relativity has closed a seven-figure deal for U.S. distribution rights to The Woman in Black: Angel of Death.
Hammer is looking to take the franchise route with The Woman in Black, starting with this one, which is set 40 years after the events of the original film. "If your second's successful, then your third, then you've got a franchise," said Hammer CEO Simon Oakes in a previous interview.

However, after some encouragement from her friends, she recently went on a blind date and to her surprise it went well! But since she still hasn't met the man of her dreams, Roxy wants to create her own. Starting at the top, she chose the charming Scott Disick because "his hair is very #luxurious." For eyes, which one may argue are the most important part, Roxy went with Skyfall's leading man, Daniel Craig! She explained that his eyes are "so ice blue you can »
With one of the most popular and successful albums of the summer being the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack, it makes you wonder what other chart-topping hits have been spawned from major motion pictures.
It turns out that more songs than one would think were originally written for films. Artists such as the Bee Gees, Seal, R. Kelly and Boyz II Men owe a lot of their success to some of Hollywood’s biggest box office hits. A lot of already established bands, such as Paul McCartney & Wings, Destiny’s Child and Elvis, have continued to remain relevant and successful by teaming up with the silver screen to create major chart-topping hits to help bring success to themselves and to the movies they’ve collaborated with.

As the year begins to wind down, we’re drawing ever closer to the production on Bond 24 beginning, with Daniel Craig stepping up to the plate as Bond for the fourth time, while Skyfall director Sam Mendes returns to helm, and John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade once again write the script. Expectations are sky-high following Skyfall, which was easily one of Bond’s best outings in recent memory and even arguably ever, but what can Mendes and co. do to ensure the 24th Bond flick continues that upswing in quality after the disappointing, underwhelming Quantum of Solace?
Well, given that the script is basically finished, they won’t have any excuses as Craig and director Marc Forster did with Solace (which was messily cobbled together during the Writer’s Strike). To date virtually nothing is known about the project beyond mere rumours, and so we’ve »

The latest poster has been released for Paddington, the rather charming looking Christmas movie which blends a CGI Paddington Bear with a live-action setting and a cast including Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, and Peter Capaldi (if you missed the first trailer, it can be found by clicking here).
For those of you wondering who it is voicing Paddington, it was recently revealed that Skyfall star Ben Whishaw had taken over from Colin Firth (The King’s Speech). It was a decision which both Firth and the movie’s director and producers all agreed with after realising that the beloved bear would be better off with a younger voice!
Along with a lovely new poster, we also have a first look at Nicole Kidman in Paddington as a sinister taxidermist who will seemingly be the one to set her sights on the sandwich loving bear in the movie. »

Will Lana Del Rey sing the theme song for the next James Bond movie? A report suggest Lana is in talks to record the next Bond theme. Producers are reportedly considering the 'West Coast' singer to provide vocals for the next James Bond anthem, but she will face stiff competition for the coveted gig from British singer Sam Smith. A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Producers know it has to be a great song with a killer vocal to rival the phenomenal success of Adele's 'Skyfall'. ''Sam seems like the favourite but Lana could definitely give him a run for his money.'' Lana certainly has the credentials as she previously earned a hit song with 'Young and Beautiful' after recording it especially for the soundtrack to 'The Great Gatsby'. Whoever lands the job will have a tough act to follow, however, as Adele's 'Skyfall »
Marco Polo will make landfall in late 2014.
Netflix announced Thursday that its anticipated original series about the famed explorer will be released on Dec. 12. The drama — which stars Italian newcomer Lorenzo Richelmy in the title role — is set in 1200s China, “a world replete with astonishing martial arts, sexual intrigue, political skullduggery and spectacular battles.”
Scroll down to view the first five images from the big-budget series.
The folks over at MI6 have alerted us that director Sam Mendes (Skyfall) is looking to cast an iconic henchman for the upcoming twenty-fourth Bond film. The recent James Bond franchise starring Daniel Craig has actually been missing that element, someone like Jaws (played by Richard Kiel) who was in two Bond films "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Moonraker," which were actually two of my favorite Roger Moore Bond films.
The idea is to find the next Jaws or Oddjob and according to the site casting has begun for the main assassin, and are specifically focused on someone extremely physically fit and over 6' 2". The character also has a working name of “Hinx” and here is the description:
Hinx (Male, 30 – 45)Ideally over 6′ 2″. Hinx is the main henchman/assassin. We are looking for an imposing extremely physically fit actor. He has several fights with Bond and will have to have stunt training. »
