News

Bohemian Rhapsody’s Rami Malek was apparently wanted for Bond 25 villain

After its director shake-up earlier this year, the cast of Bond 25 is coming together with the recent news that Lea Seydoux (Madeleine Swann), Ben Whishaw (Q), Ralph Fiennes (M) and Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) are set to return alongside Daniel Craig’s 007.

As yet, there’s been no official word on casting for the film’s villain(s), although Tomasz Kot (Cold War) was said to have been wanted for Danny Boyle’s version – a sticking point between Boyle and the producers which contributed to his departure. Said Taghmaoui (Wonder Woman) also revealed that he’d been cast as a bad guy in Boyle’s film, while unconfirmed tabloid rumours claimed that Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech) and Angelina Jolie (Maleficent) were both in contention.

Well, it seems we can add another name to the “might have been” list, as Variety is reporting that Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek

20 A-Listers Who Were Almost In Harry Potter Movies

The Harry Potter series has given birth to a number of A-list stars like Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson over the years. However, it also including a number of cast members who were famous before they joined this magical franchise. Actors like Alan Rickman and Ralph Fiennes already had a decent number of fans before they were cast as Snape and Voldemort, but there's no doubt that the Harry Potter franchise helped their careers quite a bit.

The current franchise of the Wizarding World, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, has received quite a bit of attention (for better or for worse) for featuring Johnny Depp as the primary antagonist of the movies, Grindelwald. Despite Depp's controversial past, he has a strong history of being a box office draw for movies like Pirates of the Caribbean and Alice in Wonderland, so it's likely that Depp will help to keep

Lea Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris returning for Bond 25

With director Cary Fukunaga hard at work on Bond 25, The Daily Mail is reporting that Daniel Craig will be joined by several familiar faces for his fifth and final outing as 007.

It will come as little surprise to hear that Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris are set to reprise their roles as Q, M and Moneypenny, while the newspaper has also revealed that Spectre star Lea Seydoux will be returning as Dr. Madeleine Swann.

“You have some of the best actors in the world here,” said Fukunaga. “Why wouldn’t I have the best coming back?!”

Assuming the information is correct, Seydoux’s Madeleine Swann will become only the second Bond Girl character to appear in more than one movie after Eunice Gayson’s Sylvia Trench, who appeared in both Dr. No and From Russia With Love.

Ryan Murphy On New “Feminist Horror Story” ‘Ratched’; ‘Pose’ Signifies Real Industry Change For Lgbtq Stories

Ryan Murphy On New “Feminist Horror Story” ‘Ratched’; ‘Pose’ Signifies Real Industry Change For Lgbtq Stories
Ryan Murphy says his upcoming Netflix show Ratched, starring Sarah Paulson, will be a “gorgeous story” championing feminism. Speaking at GQ Live in Los Angeles on Saturday, the TV creator explained what had drawn him to the subject, how he was letting women lead the way with the story, and how he thinks the industry truly has changed with regard to Lgbtq stories like his Globe-nominated show Pose.

Based on the Ken Kesey novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and centered around the terrifying character of asylum Nurse Ratched, Murphy described Ratched as a look into the mind of a sociopath. “She’s one of the great villains…she’s like a female Lecter,” he said, referring to that other sociopath in The Silence of the Lambs. “She’s a great, great villain, very misunderstood.”

He said his interest had been sparked while watching the 1975 Milos Forman-directed film starring Jack Nicholson.

Bohemian Rhapsody Star Was Eyed For Main Villain In Bond 25

The pre-production period of Bond 25 has been filled with “what ifs?” as so many different filmmakers and stars have been attached to the production over the past little wile. And now, here’s another one we can add to the list: Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek was in the running for the role of the movie’s main villain.

Variety is reporting that the actor was being eyed for the part of the latest nemesis of Daniel Craig’s 007, though this seems to be in the past tense now. A major reason why it likely fell through is because Malek’s committed to filming the final season of hit TV show Mr. Robot from March to July. Seeing as Bond 25 goes before cameras in February, it’s clear that his busy schedule couldn’t account for both.

Previously, Wonder Woman star Said Taghmaoui revealed that he’d been

Lea Seydoux Will Return as Madeleine Swann in James Bond 25

Madeleine Swann is coming back for more adventure with 007 in James Bond 25. Director Cary Fukunaga has revealed that L&#233a Seydoux, who previously played the part of Madeleine Swann in 2015's Spectre, will reprise the role in the upcoming entry in the long-running franchise alongside Daniel Craig, who is making this his final go around as the iconic MI6 spy. As for what that means for the story? It's certainly going to be directly connected to the events of Spectre and won't see Craig doing more of a standalone for his fifth and final Bond outing.

Cary Fukunaga previously indicated that he wanted to continue the story that started way back in Daniel Craig's first entry, Casino Royale. Previous Bonds within the history of the franchise have largely had their movies stand on their own without being too heavily tied into the movie that came before. In the case of Craig's run,

Léa Seydoux Will Return for Cary Joji Fukunaga’s ‘Bond 25’

Bond 25 is slated to hit theaters on Valentine's Day 2020 and we still don't know much about the film beyond the fact that Cary Fukunaga is directing and Daniel Craig is returning as 007. But what would a modern Bond movie be without M, Q and Moneypenny? To that end, Fukunaga has revealed that Spectre stars Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris will return for Craig's last go-round in the tuxedo, but perhaps most importantly, so will Léa Seydoux. Yes, breaking franchise tradition, Seydoux will reprise her role as Dr. Madeleine Swann, who …

Bond 25 Will Bring Back Lea Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes and More

Some new details have emerged for director Cary Joji Fukunaga’s Bond 25. We don’t have any story details, but we do know some familiar faces who will be returning!

Lea Seydoux, who played psychiatrist Dr Madeleine Swann in Spectre, will be back in the next James Bond adventure. Bond star Daniel Craig wanted her back, and apparently so did the director.

There are a few other characters that will be returning as well. Fukunaga told Daily Mail that Lea will be returning with regulars Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, and Naomie Harris as Moneypenny.

When talking about why he is bringing back these actors for the role, the director said:

“You have some of the best actors in the world here. Why wouldn't I have the best coming back?!”

We have no idea how the story arcs for these characters will turn out, but we’ll eventually find out.

‘Bond 25’ Will See Return Of ‘Spectre’ 007 Girl Lea Seydoux

  • Deadline
‘Bond 25’ Will See Return Of ‘Spectre’ 007 Girl Lea Seydoux
Fimmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga has reportedly announced that Spectre actress Lea Seydoux and regular 007 castmembers Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris are returning for Bond 25.

Seydoux played psychiatrist Dr Madeleine Swann in Spectre who works at Austrian clinic and has an affair with Mr. Bond. Of course, her role is more complicated than that: Swann is the daughter of Mr. White, who is connected to Spectre org boss Franz Oberhauser. She is arguably the first Bond girl to reprise a role in a picture since Maud Adams who played different characters (i.e. Andrea Anders in 1974’s The Man With The Golden Gun; the title character in 1983’s Octopussy in 1983 and she made a cameo in A View to a Kill.

Fiennes played Bond’s crusty Mi-6 boss, Whishaw the famed tech gadget guru Q, and Harris as 007 sidekick Moneypenny.

Lea Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes And Several Others Will Return For Bond 25

As usual, we’re stuck with referring to the next James Bond movie as, well, Bond 25 until Eon Entertainment reveals the official title at a press conference. On the plus side, though, it’s great knowing the next installment in the beloved spy series is back on track now that Cary Fukunaga is occupying the director’s chair – even if the flick has been forced to endure a slight delay.

So, even though Daniel Craig is giving it at least one more go as 007, one can never be entirely certain of his supporting cast. Fortunately, Fukunaga was quite forthcoming in a recent interview and, in Cinema Blend’s words, confirmed “that not only will Lea Seydoux’s Dr. Madeline Swann be coming back, but also Ralph Fiennes’s M, Ben Whishaw’s Q, and Naomie Harris’ Moneypenny.”

In this direct quote from the filmmaker, he explains his sound reasoning:

Lego Batman Movie 2 In The Works

Kirsten Howard Dec 7, 2018

Chris McKay is ploughing ahead with a sequel to The Lego Batman Movie...

The Lego Batman Movie was a decent-sized success when it came out back in 2017. Compared to it's Lego franchise predecessor, 2014's The Lego Movie, not so much, but we did presume the film made enough cash at the box office to warrant a sequel - $312 million off an $80 million budget.

Surprisingly, though, there's not been a whisper of it, but Lego Batman director Chris McKay has confirmed to a fan on Twitter this week that he's working on a follow up movie "right now"...

We are working on that rn actually! In the meantime Lego Batman is all over Lego 2 coming in February.

The Lego Batman Movie was incredibly frenetic, and stayed fairly close to the spirit of McKay's work at Adult Swim. Not everyone was a fan of that style,

Taron Egerton talks Kingsman return and criticism of The Golden Circle

Having portrayed Eggsy in Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle, actor Taron Egerton will be sitting out the next instalment in the spy series as director Matthew Vaughn takes us back in time to the First World War for the prequel Kingsman: The Great Game.

Vaughn does however plan to follow-up the spinoff with a third outing for Eggsy, and Egerton has revealed to the Empire Podcast that he’s open to a return – although he’s hoping that the next movie will be better received than The Golden Circle was last year.

“I would like the third one to be better received than the second one was. I thought we got a bit of an unfair kicking, if I’m totally honest,” said Egerton during a promotional interview for his new film Robin Hood. “You think in some respects it was [difficult] because I just gave everything to it.

Daniel Bruhl and Charles Dance have signed up, with Rhys Ifans and Matthew Goode also circling roles...

There will be a Kingsman 3 ...but not before we go back in time, possibly to where it all began, with Kingsman: The Great Game, a prequel set in the early 20th century.

Collider has revealed that Daniel Brühl has now joined the cast of the prequel, along with Charles Dance (Game Of Thrones).

Harry Potter And Game Of Thrones Stars Join Kingsman Prequel

The Kingsman franchise continues next year not with Kingsman 3 but a prequel movie set a hundred years ago that’ll tell the story of the founding of the upper class secret service. Rumored to be titled The Great Game, the pic’s already cast Harry Dickinson and Ralph Fiennes in the Eggsy/Galahad-type roles and now, three more stars have been announced to be signing up for Fox’s spy movie.
