Tom Hardy on Whether or Not He’s in Contention to Play James Bond: ‘If I Mention It, It’s Gone’

16 January 2017 2:09 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s looking less and less likely that Daniel Craig will reprise his role as James Bond in the next installment of the long-running spy franchise, and speculation about who might succeed him has run rampant in recent months. Among the presumed contenders is Tom Hardy, who may or may not have just confirmed that he’s in the running by not actually speaking about it.

Tom Hardy Wants to Play James Bond for Director Christopher Nolan

16 January 2017 1:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The latest James Bond movie, Spectre, which was the fourth to feature Daniel Craig as 007, came out more than a year ago. Nothing about the next movie in the long-running franchise has been revealed at this time. It isn't even clear if Daniel Craig is going to return, though Sony really wants him to. With that in mind, there have been a lot of names thrown around when it comes to who may replace Craig as the next Bond. Tom Hardy's name has regularly been mentioned, and now it seems like he has personally dumped some fuel on that fire.

The actor recently spoke with The Daily Beast in order to promote his new show Taboo. The subject of those James Bond rumors did come up. Surprisingly, while not actually saying much, he seemed to confirm that he is at the very least interested, but seemingly implied that some »

16 January 2017 3:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Casting the next James Bond isn’t the only task on the agenda for the producers of the 007 franchise, as Skyfall and Spectre director Sam Mendes has decided to pass on the torch and see what other filmmakers can do with the property for Bond 25. And, according to Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road), the heavy crown should next lie on his InceptionThe Dark Knight Rises and Dunkirk director, Christopher Nolan.

“You know, there’s a saying amongst us in the fraternity of acting, and in the fellowship of my peer group, that if you talk about it you’re automatically out of the race, ” said Hardy when asked by The Daily Beast if he’d be interested in the role of Bond. “So I can’t possibly comment on that one! If I mention it, it’s gone. But Chris Nolan, what a fantastic director for a Bond movie. »

The Avenging Silence: new details emerge for Nicolas Winding Refn's action thriller

11 January 2017 11:12 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jan 12, 2017

Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn's next film is an action thriller, The Avenging Silence. Here are some early plot details...

Whether they're about violent British prisoners, Los Angeles models or Bangkok gangsters, Nicolas Winding Refn's movies are reliably low on dialogue and high on saturated, sometimes unnerving images. That style is likely to continue in Refn's next movie, which is described as an action thriller about a mute spy on a mission in Japan.

Nicolas Winding Refn’s Yakuza Action Feature ‘The Avenging Silence’ Gets Extensive Synopsis

11 January 2017 1:34 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With The Neon Demon now (almost completely) exorcised from Danish auteur Nicolas Winding Refn‘s system, he is already deep into preparing his next project. On the docket for the director is The Avenging Silence, which will apparently sate Refn’s desire to make a “big extravagant action film.” Refn also said over the summer it is loosely inspired by “Dr. No,” Ian Fleming‘s classic Bond novel, as well as William Burrough‘s “Nova Express.” An extended synopsis has now been released for the feature, which hopefully will make its way to screens by 2018.

While he has dipped into action in sections of DriveBronson and The Pusher Trilogy, The Avenging Silence sounds like a big step for Refn into pure spy/action genre fare. However, fans of Refn’s stylistic choices should rest assured as he has already stated his protagonist won’t say much. This time, that »

A Mute Killer Targets The Yakuza In This Extensive Synopsis For Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Avenging Silence

11 January 2017 9:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If the first official synopsis is any indication, Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn is about to do good on his promise of creating a “big, extravagant action film” with The Avenging Silence.

Published through Crouching Tigers Project Lab – and relayed via The Playlist – the exhaustive description identifies the damaged protagonist of Refn’s latest to be a mute European assassin bound for Japan. His target? The most dangerous Yakuza family in the entire country. Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, two veterans of the modern James Bond franchise after contributing to Skyfall and Spectre, are the brains behind the screenplay, thus explaining the spy-thriller sensibilities of The Avenging Silence.

It’s shaping up to be an existential journey for our silent killer, too, with the logline teasing an encounter with conquest, war, famine and death – a symbol of the Four Horsemen, perhaps? – upon stepping foot in southern Japan. There’s currently »

Exciting, Extensive Synopsis Revealed For Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘The Avenging Silence’

11 January 2017 6:11 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Nicolas Winding Refn tends to play it close to the vest when it comes to his upcoming movies, but the details he’s dropped so far about “The Avenging Silence” have been tantalizing. Bond veterans Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (“Casino Royale,” “Quantum Of Solace,” “Skyfall,” “Spectre“) are writing the script for the film, with the director saying early last year that the project was borne out of his desire to make “a big extravagant action film.” Then over the summer, the filmmaker teased that the movie would be inspired by Ian Fleming‘s seminal Bond book “Dr.

Javier Bardem’s Salazer Hits The High Seas In New Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Image

9 January 2017 7:55 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Salazer sets sail in this all-new still for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Described as a ghostly pirate who commands a crew of equally-creepy ghost sailors – hence the title – Javier Bardem’s glowering baddie has clawed his way out of the Devil’s Triangle with just one name on his proverbial hit-list: Captain Jack Sparrow. But Salazer is a loose cannon, and his scorched Earth approach has placed every pirate on the seven seas on red alert – and it’s not too difficult to see why.

Donning heavy prosthetics for the part, this isn’t the first time moviegoers have seen Javier Bardem stray into full-blown villain territory; five years ago, the award-winning actor put Daniel Craig’s 007 through his paces in Skyfall, and did so in a manner that was thrilling to watch. Here’s hoping Bardem is able to command the screen once more as Salazer. »

Returning Friends

Four movies that transcend the “sequel” label, offering reunions with characters we honestly miss. And, hey, did you notice Ridley Scott and/or Harrison Ford have a connection to three of the four?

T2: Trainspotting

In some ways, Trainspotting is not the type of movie that begs a sequel. The frenetic, scatological story of heroine addicts Renton (Ewan McGregor), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) was hailed as an indie gem when it was released in 1996, and needed no follow-up. But on the other hand, who better to catch up with than those chemical-addled misfits? Have they cleaned themselves up? Have they built enjoyable lives? Director Danny Boyle »
