We just...We just NEED those cars for the movie.

In a ploy that could have only been perpetrated by the likes of Javier Bardem, Christoph Waltz, or possibly Sean Bean, we’ve learned that five cars intended for use in the filming of the upcoming Bond, Spectre, have gone missing.

The cars were jacked from Range Rover headquarters in Neuss, Germany, which is a funny place for a British car company’s headquarters to be, but…oh never mind, they got bought out. Whatever. The five Range Rover Sports were being valued at $1 million, which makes me think that the gang in Neuss might be a little aggressive with their valuation.

Also, one would think that a James Bond character, good or bad, would drive the full-on Range Rover. If Waltz shows up driving a Boxster or a Mercedes SLK, I’m gonna have a shit fit.

Production will proceed as normal because this is likely a rounding error in the film’s $200 million budget.

Stephen Hawking Wants To Be A Bond Villain, And We Want Him To As Well http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/stephen-hawking-wants-to-be-a-bond-villain-and-we-want-him-to-as-well/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/stephen-hawking-wants-to-be-a-bond-villain-and-we-want-him-to-as-well/#comments Tue, 02 Dec 2014 16:57:09 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=267778 He couldn't be worse than Sean Bean!

While Stephen Hawking seems to have missed the boat on Bond 24, but there’s always the next one. Or the next one. And so on. The disabled physicist has a parade of cameos and voice-over work to his name, but would like something a little more prominent in the future.

He wants to be a Bond villain. Speaking to Wired, Hawking said, “”My ideal role would be a baddie in a James Bond film. I think the wheelchair and the computer voice would fit the part.”

I think so, too. And it would still be far less distracting than Javier Bardem‘s blonde hair.

But would he be better than Christoph Waltz, who’s supposedly playing the next villain? We’ll have to cast them both and find out.

While Christopher Nolan has his hands full with Interstellar, a science fiction film that will no doubt confuse me, he has gone on record as saying he’s interested in perhaps helming a James Bond film. With Sam Mendes walking away, now would be the perfect time to discuss Nolan’s involvement in the next chapter of Bond.

The Daily Mail has offered that the producers of the franchise, Michael G. Wilson and the disgustingly named Barbara Broccoli, have approached Nolan with an offer to direct the next installment. No (reported) word on what the outcome of the (reported) talks are, but I’m sure we can hear all about it as soon as we get a source on the inside (allegedly).

‘Skyfall’ Teaser Trailer Promises A Darker Bond http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/skyfall-teaser-trailer-promises-a-darker-bond/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/skyfall-teaser-trailer-promises-a-darker-bond/#comments Mon, 21 May 2012 18:44:39 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=248820 He doesn't seem to enjoy his job as much as he used to.

Daniel Craig’s tenure as James Bond has already proven to be the antithesis of the Timothy Dalton years, but if the first teaser for Skyfall is to be trusted, it raises the stakes of “darkest Bond ever” even further.

We don’t glean much in the way of plot points from the video, but we get plenty of haunting drums, a la Christopher Nolan. And, yes, at the :56 mark, we see a man falling through the sky. A “Skyfall,” if you will.

Going on this, I would say the film looks promising, though would it kill Daniel Craig to smile a little?
