Assassin, Agent and Art Thief: Pierce Brosnan’s vast filmography

Cameron Frew looks back over the career of Pierce Brosnan

“So when you’re near me, darling can’t you hear me, S.O.S.” If you were to ask any movie fan in the 90s if they thought they’d hear Pierce Brosnan, aka James Bond utter those iconic Abba words on film, they’d probably laugh in your face. But over 20 years later, the versatile Irishman is famed for more than having a licence to kill. In the past three years he’s ferried Owen Wilson out of a coup-ridden foreign country, went up against none other than Jackie Chan in Netflix’s The Foreigner, and is due returning to the small screen for a second season of oil-driven, acclaimed western The Son. He may never quite escape the Bond facade – but Brosnan is always a worthwhile performer. Saying that, look deeper into his filmography and there is

‘Goldeneye’ Video Game Creators Confirm Playing as Oddjob Makes You a Dirty Cheater

One of the best video game adaptations of all time is undoubtedly GoldenEye 64. The game took the first James Bond movie starring Pierce Brosnan and turned it into a polygonal first-person shooter that also gave us one of the most endlessly entertaining multiplayer experiences of any video game in history. But it wasn’t always […]

James Bond 25 Delayed as New Director Search Continues?

James Bond 25 Delayed as New Director Search Continues?
The increasingly complex road to James Bond 25 just got a little more bumpy. Director Danny Boyle recently exited the project after running into creative differences with producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, as well as star Daniel Craig, who has a good deal of creative control on the upcoming entry in the franchise. He's also said to be getting a payday in the neighborhood of $25 million for his services. Now, the search for a new director is on, but that will likely mean production is going to be delayed, ultimately resulting in a new release date.

Before Danny Boyle bailed, production was scheduled to begin in December on the follow-up to 2015's Spectre. Unfortunately, according to a new report, the producers are now looking for a new writer or writer/director to board the project, which means that a serious rewrite, or possibly an entirely new script is going to be commissioned.

Bond 25: With Danny Boyle’s Exit, the Latest 007 Could Miss Its Release Date

  • Variety
The next James Bond movie didn’t just lose a director when Danny Boyle left over creative differences. It may have also forfeited a release date.

Word around town is that it’s back to the drawing board for the creators of the new 007 adventure after Boyle and his co-writer, John Hodge, delivered a draft of the script that didn’t meet the approval of producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, as well as star Daniel Craig. After Boyle exited, MGM and Eon, the film’s backers, sent out the word that they are looking for a writer or a writer-director to come on to the film, according to insiders.

The companies are not simply eyeing a director for hire, which signals that a major rewrite will have to be undertaken. It is also telling that the producers seem more eager to find a screenwriter than a person willing to slide behind the camera.

James Bond's Aston Martin DB5 Is Being Reproduced with Gadgets and All

If you were to make a list of the coolest cars in movie history, the James Bond driven Aston Martin DB5, which first appeared in 1964's Goldfinger, would unquestionably be right near the top of that list. Unfortunately, these cars have been notoriously difficult to obtain over the years, given their status as collector's items, thanks to the Bond franchise. Now, however, Aston Martin has announced that they're reintroducing the DB5 for a special, limited run. To top it all off, this version will include many of the fancy spy gadgets, straight from Q Branch.

The company has announced that a very limited series of 25 Goldfinger DB5 continuation editions will be created for some very lucky (and wealthy) customers by Aston Martin Works and Eon Productions. The new line of DB5s will be based on James Bond's legendary car from the 1964 classic and will be built at Newport Pagnell,

Pierce Brosnan Misses The Humor Of The Old James Bond Films

As the discourse heats up around who will and should be the next James Bond, the last actor to surrender the title to a fresh face is sharing his thoughts over just what’s missing from the spy franchise’s recent installments.

Pierce Brosnan’s 4-film run in the role, from 1995’s Goldeneye to 2002’s Die Another Day, isn’t the most fondly remembered era for the series, with the latter often being singled out as a jump-the-shark moment for the property, necessitating the gritty makeover of 2006’s Casino Royale. In a recent interview with The Rake, the Mamma Mia! star reflected on this notable tonal shift between his last Bond outing and Daniel Craig’s debut, saying:

“I knew there had been a seismic shift, and little did I know I was going to be part of that in the curtain falling on my contract. I knew they had to make adjustments.

BossLogic Imagines Henry Cavill as James Bond and It's Perfect

BossLogic Imagines Henry Cavill as James Bond and It's Perfect
We now have an idea of what Henry Cavill will look like as James Bond. There is no telling who will end up replacing Daniel Craig as 007 once he retires. The internet has been ripe with rumors and fan suggestions over the course of the last couple of years ever since Spectre was released. Cavill has been a popular suggestion and now, thanks to some really awesome fan art, we see that he would make a pretty excellent choice, assuming the producers want to maintain the classic archetype of the character.

The art comes from BossLogic, who very regularly does art depicting actors and actresses in various roles that they were recently cast in, or, in this case, a popular fan suggestion. The art features Henry Cavill on a poster for what we could presume would be the first movie to follow next year's James Bond 25. There's no title, but

Idris Elba Just Seemingly Addressed Those Rumors He's Playing 007 in Future James Bond Movie

Fans might not like this. For years, there have been rumors that Idris Elba would become the first black actor to play 007 in a James Bond movie. However, we're not so optimistic that the handsome star will be succeeding Daniel Craig anytime soon. Idris, 45, took to Twitter on Sunday, Aug. 12 to write, "My name's Elba, Idris Elba." But we want it to be James Bond! He followed up with another tweet that read, "Don’t believe the Hype..." my name’s Elba, Idris Elba. pic.twitter.com/kEyyaVg8JX— Idris Elba (@idriselba) August 12, 2018 Don’t believe the Hype...— Idris Elba (@idriselba) August 12, 2018 During a 2011 interview, Idris told NPR that he wasn't interested in playing the role.

Idris Elba Fuels James Bond Speculation on Twitter: ‘My Name’s Elba, Idris Elba’
As you may have heard over the last, oh, five to 10 years, Idris Elba may at some point in our lifetime play James Bond. The “Luther,” “The Wire,” and “Beasts of No Nation” star has long been considered a potential 007 once Daniel Craig’s decade-plus tenure comes to an end; in addition to being a highly respected performer, Elba would also be the first nonwhite thespian to take on the role. Craig has already confirmed he’ll return for one last go-round, but now Elba has fueled speculation that he may be next in line with a simple tweet.

“my name’s Elba, Idris Elba,” he wrote on Twitter early this morning, much to the delight of fans. Whether he was merely joking or hinting at something more official remains to be seen. At 45, Elba is just five years younger than Craig, who first took on the role of Bond

Pierce Brosnan Says Tom Hardy Should Play James Bond Next

Pierce Brosnan has started the press rounds for the upcoming Abba musical movie sequel Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again and on the tour he has been talking about the James Bond franchise in which he starred in the 1990s.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the actor commented that while he thnks Daniel Craig has made a superb Bond, Tom Hardy would also be fantastic.

He said:

“Bond is Bond and you can’t change that. I think a woman could play Bond but it wouldn’t be James Bond. Daniel Craig has been an incredible Bond. He’s very physical, he looks lethal. You genuinely believe this is someone who could kill a man. He’s complained about doing the part because he’s put himself through a lot physically, but he will do the next movie, and then I think Tom Hardy could be a good Bond. I

Pierce Brosnan Wants Tom Hardy to Be the Next James Bond: ‘You Need an Actor Who Can Put a Bit of Wiggle Into It’

No one knows who the next James Bond will be, but everybody has an opinion. That includes Pierce Brosnan, who starred as 007 in “GoldenEye,” “Tomorrow Never Dies,” “The World Is Not Enough,” and “Die Another Day” from 1995–2002. He revealed his choice during an interview with the Mail on Sunday’s Event magazine.“I think Tom Hardy could be a good Bond. I’d be happy to see him do it.”

“You need an actor who can put a bit of wiggle into it — that’s what makes Bond,” Brosnan adds. Hardy is no stranger to the world of high-profile franchises, having starred in everything from “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” to the upcoming “Venom.”

Brosnan’s enthusiasm for a new 007 doesn’t mean he isn’t a fan of the current Bond, however: “Daniel Craig has been an incredible Bond,” he says of his successor. “He’s very physical,

Reg Gadney obituary

Artist, television scriptwriter and author of thrillers featuring unheroic heroes

To a host of art students Reg Gadney, who has died aged 77, was an inspirational teacher; to television producers he was a reliable, award-winning scriptwriter; to readers of popular fiction he was a master of the unconventional thriller featuring unheroic heroes; and in later years he became recognised as an innovative portrait painter of the great and good. Then, to a select few who realised the connection, he would introduce himself as “the fifth James Bond, between Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan”.

His script for the Anglia Television film Goldeneye (1989), based on the life of Ian Fleming, got him the plum role as Bond. Gadney had accepted the job, he maintained, only if he could accompany the film crew to the Jamaican locations. While he was there, Charles Dance (playing Fleming) suggested he should take the brief cameo role of James Bond,

Turok And Turok 2: Seeds Of Evil Remastered Review

While it may not have gotten as much play-time as GoldenEye or Perfect Dark, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was a staple in my house growing up. The Nintendo 64 gem has become a bit of a cult classic over the years, as its solid gameplay and unique world have endeared it to fans. The subsequent entry in the series, 1998’s Turok 2: Seeds of Evil would achieve even higher marks, with the game’s mission structure being particularly praised. Unfortunately, the series would eventually be irreparably damaged due to the disastrous Evolution in 2002, and with only a solid, if slightly disappointing reboot being released since, it doesn’t appear to be returning anytime soon. That didn’t stop publisher Night Dive Studios from deciding to remaster and re-release the first two Turok games, though, which have now both arrived on the Xbox One after previously launching for PC.

Alan Cumming To Play A Villain On Doctor Who Season 11

Scottish actor Alan Cumming, known for his various roles in the likes of GoldenEye, Spy Kids, X2 and The Good Wife, among many others, is no stranger to Doctor Who. In fact, he’s been asked to play the face-changing Time Lord on not just one, but two occasions. While he’s said in the past that he would have loved to take the part, there was one big aspect of the job that always put him off; relocating to Cardiff, Wales, where the show is filmed.

Now, however, he’ll finally get a chance to join the iconic sci-fi series, though not in the titular role. Speaking on a recent podcast, the actor revealed that he’s been cast in season 11 as King James I, who he describes as a “nice baddie.” Though Cumming didn’t say much else, he did note that there’s a chance he’ll come back,

My Day Hanging Out With James Bond: Visiting the Set of 'GoldenEye' (Exclusive)

James Bond wielded the knife with obvious skill. He approached, blade barely glinting in the light, and pounced, the knife coming down to join the awaiting fork. "I usually eat fruit," he said simply, "but today I'm in the mood for a good English breakfast." And with that, he began his meal. Okay, so it's not stopping arch-nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld from triggering World War III, or preventing Auric Goldfinger from turning the gold in Fort Knox radioactive, but it was my experience with agent 007 back in 1994. At the time, I was Senior Editor at Cinescape and somehow we ended up with the rights to do the magazine on the making of the 17th James Bond movie — and the first one to star Pierce BrosnanGoldenEye. Even more incredibly, I was the guy chosen to fly to England to spend a few days on the set at Leavesden Studios, later

Five reasons to see The ForeignerFive reasons to see The ForeignerScott Goodyer1/16/2018 9:30:00 Am

Jackie Chan karate kicks his way back onscreen in The Foreigner! The action movie has Chan playing a humble businessman with a buried past who seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. Pierce Brosnan also stars, teaming up again with GoldenEye director Martin Campbell.

Here are 5 reasons why you need to check this movie out:

1. The Stunts

Jackie Chan has endured many years of long, hard work and a ton of injuries to establish international success via his early beginnings in Hong Kong's martial arts movie industry. Making his way to North American audiences in 1995 with Rumble in the Bronx, this was the first time we saw an action star do his own stunts as he ran up walls and bounced off cars. It was very impressive and Jackie hasn't slowed down.
