Rather than bookies’ frontrunners James Norton, Michael Fassbender, Tom Hardy or even Tom Hiddleston, it’s Jack Huston who seems to be atop producers’ wish lists.In fact, according to the Mail, James Bond bigwig Barbara Broccoli has worked with him before on London’s West End and favours the 34-year-old as a potential 007.
It was Strangers On A Train in which Huston was starring – and he picked up strong reviews. He also fronted last year’s flop Ben-Hur remake.
George Lazenby sprung to fame, as you probably know, by being cast as James Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. And then he walked away. Becoming Bond, a documentary set to debut on Hulu in the US this coming May, aspires to tell Lazenby’s story. Lazenby was a used car salesman when he got the job of playing James Bond. To date, he is the youngest actor to have played the spy. He was 29 years old when he starred in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, earning a Golden Globe New Star of the Year nomination (which was apparently a thing in 1970?) for the role before walking away from a nice, six-movie deal that would have seen him continuing on in the role.
What happened? Well, as you can tell from the trailer below, writer-director Josh Greenbaum has the real Lazenby tell his story while also having actors reenact the events on screen. The cast includes: Josh Lawson (House Of Lies), Jeff Garlin, Jake Johnson, Jane Seymour, and Dana Carvey.
Lazenby and the trailer promise a bit of everything — drama, comedy, romance, drugs, sex, twists, turns, the whole shebang. Is it a good story? “It depends if you like those kind of stories,” Lazenby tells the camera. Judging by the trailer, this is going to be one stylish, fascinating ride. Check it out…
James Bondscreenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have reportedly signed up to write the new, as-yet-untitled 007 film. The pair have worked as co-writers on every movie in the spy franchise since 1999’s The World is Not Enough. Daily Mail reporter Baz Bamigboye today tweeted that both writers had been “hired” for the new movie, but that lead actor Daniel Craig was “still deciding whether he will do it”.
Speaking to The Telegraph in February, the writers hinted that the next film would have to be a radical departure from 2015’s Spectre. Wade said: “Spectre felt like it closed off a certain way of doing Bond. And I think whatever happens next will be quite different.”
Nonetheless, the fact that they have been hired this early suggests the studio may have learnt a hard lesson from Spectre, when they were only brought in as script doctors much later on.
Purvis revealed to The Telegraph just how difficult the writing process for Spectre was. “People were already in pre-production on the film, and they wanted to see things all the time,” he said. “And sometimes they couldn’t decide what they wanted until they’d seen it written. So you write scene upon scene upon scene. You write so much. But how it finally got shaped was probably down to [Sam Mendes,] the director.”
But Mendes, who also directed 2012’s Skyfall, will not be returning for the 25th Bond film. “I loved every second of it, but I think it’s time for somebody else,” he said at last year’s Hay Festival.
If Craig follows Mendes in quitting the franchise, it will leave the biggest role in British cinema up for grabs. Bookmakers have recently seen a flurry of betting on who will replace the 49-year-old, who has now played Bond for more than a decade.
Yesterday, BoyleSports slashed the odds on Poldark star Aidan Turner donning the Bond tuxedo to 3/1, after a number of high-stakes bets. But the bookies currently place Tom Hardy and Michael Fassbender as the frontrunners, both at 5/2.
MGM, the independent studio behind the James Bond franchise, is in “advanced talks” to sell the company to a Chinese buyer, a senior source said.MGM, which also houses the archives of President Trump’s “The Apprentice,” has been looking for a buyer, or an IPO.
The firm is also a one-third owner — with Lionsgate and Paramount — of Epix, the premium movie and TV service.
The name of the China-based entity involved in the talks, perhaps newly formed to make the deal, could not immediately be learned. It is, however, the latest in a string of China investors looking for deals in Hollywood.
The film studio is owned by a slew of hedge funds including Kevin Ulrich’s Anchorage Capital Group and Highland Capital. Other investors include Daniel Loeb’s Third Point.
MGM emerged from a complex bankruptcy in 2010 whereby debtholders were able to convert their holdings into equity. The firm was loaded with $3.7 billion of debt at the time of its bankruptcy. A deal with the Chinese entity could become complicated. Chinese nationals are having a hard time getting visas to enter the US, sources told The Post. The Beijing government is also cracking down on how much cash can leave the country. Such rapid global changes are weighing on Dick Clark Productions, which made a $1 billion deal to sell itself to Wanda.That deal is now all but dead, industry sources said.A spokesman for MGM said “MGM is in the strongest position ever and is not for sale.”
Naomie Harris praised Danny Boyle as she was appointed an OBE at Buckingham Palace.
The 40-year-old actress was honoured by the Queen for her services to drama at an investiture ceremony on Thursday. She described the honour as “phenomenal” and credited her career to director Danny Boyle who she said ‘took a chance’ on her when she was starting out as an actress.
“This is really phenomenal,” she told reporters. “This is representing my country and being recognised for having made a contribution to the nation. It can’t get better than that.
“I credit so much to Danny Boyle. He really gave me a chance when nobody else would at the start of my career when I had no credits to my name. “Then later on he gave me a part in Frankenstein at the National after having left drama school ten years before and not having done any theatre. He took a chance again and that’s how Bond happened.”
Harris said the Queen asked her about her upcoming projects and congratulated her on the success of her award winning film, Moonlight. Speaking about meeting the monarch, Harris said: “I was impressed by how youthful she looked. She looked incredibly young and really healthy – and she has good skin.”
