How Daniel Craig Engineered A Smart ‘Bond 25’ Finale with Director Cary Fukunaga

How Daniel Craig Engineered A Smart ‘Bond 25’ Finale with Director Cary Fukunaga
What Daniel Craig wants, Daniel Craig gets. And what he wants is to make his own version of “From Russia with Love” (1963), arguably the best of the James Bond movies and Sean Connery’s favorite. And now, with the signing of Cary Fukunaga as director, it looks like Craig’s going to pull it off for his fifth and final outing as 007.

With the sudden departure of director Danny Boyle, “Bond 25” is now on track with only a three-month delay. Production begins March 4, 2019 in London, with MGM setting a February 14, 2020 release date. What a nice Valentine’s Day present.

It’s been a complicated journey to make “Bond 25,” beset by all sorts of unprecedented twists and turns for the longest-running movie franchise. Go-to Bond scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade delivered a treatment to keep Bond relevant and to ensure Craig’s involvement. But then Boyle and his “Trainspotting

U.K. Talent Agency Begins Developing Film and TV Projects, Launches New Slate (Exclusive)

  • Variety
The increasing demand for original film and TV content has resulted in players targeting earlier stages of the production process. Now talent agencies, in both the U.K. and the U.S., are arriving earlier to the dance.

The latest agency to dive into content creation is The Artists Partnership (Tap), which is launching The Development Partnership (Tdp) with a slate that includes a new take on Cyrano de Bergerac from Joseph Fiennes, a drama series with Anna Friel and a film project about a real-life con man, with James Norton.

‘Casino Royale’ Scribes Neal Purvis & Robert Wade Turning ‘Bond 25’ Treatment Into Script

  • Deadline
Screenwriter Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who’ve been aboard the 007 franchise as story writers since 1999’s The World Is Not Enough, are now turning their approved Bond 25 treatment into a script with the departure of Danny Boyle from the project.

This was to be expected after Boyle fell off. Purvis and Wade are reportedly taking elements from their treatment and Boyle’s script and working them into a new movie.

A search is still underway by Eon and MGM for a new director and Deadline has heard that such names as Edgar Wright, Yann Demange, and David Mackenzie’s names have been floated. The pic’s release date remains unchanged for Nov. 8 next year, however, many believe that will change once a new helmer emerges. Purvis and Wade wrote the screenplay for Die Another Day, the final Pierce Brosnan Bond, and have been the credited scribes throughout the

Is Daniel Craig’s Bond Doomed to Fizzle Out?

Tom Jolliffe looks at the aftermath of Danny Boyle leaving Bond 25 and whether Daniel Craig’s final film is destined to underwhelm…

The news came like a bolt from the blue yesterday. Danny Boyle has left Bond 25 due to creative differences. We’re just over a year away from this being delivered to cinemas. A director either walking, or being pushed (or both) at this juncture is far from ideal.

As surprising as this episode is (coming hot off several weeks of renewed and vigorous speculation about Idris Elba taking up the Walther Ppk next) it seems to be normality in Hollywood these days, particularly if you peek over at Disney and their properties. No one is paramount these days. In truth, directors never have been, particularly through the eras of superstar power. Nowadays films rely more on concept, franchise and canon than star names. Even stars aren’t beyond being axed and replaced.

Rosamund Pike: I Was Told to Strip Down for ‘Die Another Day’ Audition

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.

Pike, however, wasn’t going to try and land her first feature film this way.

Pierce Brosnan Wants Tom Hardy as the Next James Bond

Pierce Brosnan Wants Tom Hardy as the Next James Bond
Pierce Brosnan has endorsed Tom Hardy as the man who should be the next James Bond. Hardy's name has come up plenty in the past as a popular choice amongst fans and with oddsmakers who are weighing the chances of who will eventually take over for Daniel Craig. Now, the former 007 has endorsed the popular suggestion. But is this something that could realistically happen at this point?

Starting with Goldeneye, Pierce Brosnan played Bond in a total of four movies from 1996 to 2002. His final entry Die Another Day is generally considered to be one of the worst in the more than fifty year history of the franchise. Despite that, the man has a long-standing history with the iconic MI6 spy and his endorsement for another actor to take over the role probably shouldn't be taken lightly. The actor made the statements during a recent interview while promoting the upcoming release of Mama Mia!

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,

9 Most Memorable Swimsuits in TV and Film History, From Jean Harlow to Halle Berry (Photos)
On this day in 1946, the bikini made its debut. To celebrate #NationalBikiniDay, let’s take a look back at some of the most iconic swimsuits–both one- and two-piece–in film and television, from the 1930s to the present.

1930s: Jean Harlow

In the 1930s, before her death at age 26, film actress Jean Harlow was a Hollywood sex symbol. According to Redbook, she was also one of the earliest stars to be photographed in a swimsuit.

Betty Grable was celebrated in the 1930s and 40s for her “million dollar legs.” Though this yellow bikini is not as famous as Grable’s famous one-piece and high heels attire, it’s iconic in its own right.

Danny Boyle is officially set to direct the upcoming James Bond 25 film from an original screenplay being written by John Hodge.
