Ha, ha. It looks like Muppet hair.
What’s his excuse for ‘Dream House’?
James Bond will return in: Fall, 2012.
The coupling of Caruso and the smart, deep story of ‘Preacher’ sounds as unnatural as sex between an angel and a demon.
He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named might very well get named as part of the new James Bond cast.
Javier Bardem has now personally confirmed that he has been offered the villain role in the 23rd James Bond installment.
Prepare yourselves to see Javier Bardem with a really cool scar or a cat on his lap or something. The ‘Biutiful’ Oscar nominee has been offered a role opposite Daniel Craig in ‘Bond 23.’
Good news! James Bond still has a stern boss!! Husky-eyed, aristotle, British old lady, Dame Judi Dench will once again reprise the role of M in Sam Mendes’s take on the material.
The on-again, off-again 23rd installment of the James Bond series is officially on with Sam Mendes directing.
Turns out Kate Winslet is a huge Bond tease. Sorry you got all aroused, but this project isn’t ready to be touched.
Kate Winslet is saying things about her ex-husband’s affairs. The British actress told The Daily Mail that she is looking to move her children back to London as Sam Mendes, her former hubby, directs the newest Bond film. Shooting could begin as early as the end of next year.
MGM recently filed for bankruptcy, and you know what that means. It’s time for them to make movies! Don’t ask me how the government works because I cannot enlighten you. The Hobbit is finally scheduled to begin filming in February, and now it looks like MGM’s other huge franchise, the James Bond series, is picking up steam maybe but who the hell knows for sure.
Our sentiments exactly.Looks like MGM's brokeassedness will cost them a lot more than just The Hobbit. The studio's historic James Bond series is also reportedly out this bitch. Production has halted on the upcoming Sam Mendes-directed Bond 23, and that it may not begin again. In fact, it could be years before we see Bond on the big screen again. Which means we'll have to spend our time mercilessly blowing up our friends with proximity mines. Which gets old after the first few hundred times. From the UK Daily Mirror:Production crew were told in April the £132million blockbuster, starring Daniel Craig, had been postponed amid “financial problems” at debt-ridden movie studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which co-funded the film.But now it has confirmed the movie has been axed – and it could be years before the secret agent with a licence to kill is back on the big screen.Bond has been MGM's golden ticket for years on end. If they can't scrape together assets to make another blockbuster, it's unlikely they'll weather this storm. Better keep those Daniel Craig popsicles in the freezer for now, lame housewives and weird dudes. They're scary collector's items now.
"HIGH-FIIIIIVE!!!"Sam Mendes and Adam Shankman may lay down their gladii and exit the battle arena, Disney has offered Oz, the Great and Powerful to director Sam Raimi. There's no word yet whether Raimi will take the gig, and a few details may need to be worked out before he comes on-board.Robert Downey Jr. was once attached to this project to play the titular Oz, a Kansas carnie who carves a niche for himself in the magical land, but his name hasn't come up in recent reports. Another potential issue is Mitchell Kapner's script. Though it's probably due for revision, early reviews say it is pretty dumb (although it involves flying monkeys). And finally, and this will certainly be a sticking point for Raimi, where does Bruce Campbell fit into this? Can he be a snarky palace guard or can he appear Dorf-style as a rebellious Munchkin with a take-charge attitude? You know, the type that other Munchkins want to be and women want to change. These are the types of questions you need to ask studios before you sign sh*t. (Vulture)
You can watch your unborn child on your new iPhone, yo!After Steve Jobs announced the release of the iPhone 4 today, he premiered the new commercial "FaceTime" directed by Sam Mendes of American Beauty and Road to Perdition fame. The spot showcases the video conferencing capabilities of the new slimmer device. You can now help your friends decide on what outfit to wear, or watch from across the world as your baby takes her first steps. Oh I'm sorry, I didn't mean for that to sound depressing. This is advanced technology. Show me a smile!Check out the spot at Apple HERE.
Spread your apps for Papa.Sam Mendes is transitioning from directing Academy Award winning movies such as American Beauty to directing commercials for Apple's new iPhone. He's currently shooting this week for commercials that will air after Steve Jobs announces the new "gimme gimme!" device on June 7th. According to Engadget, the series of commercials are being referred to internally as the Mammoth / N90:A trusted source has confirmed to us that the ads will feature at least one spot where a mother and daughter are having a video chat conversation using the new front-facing camera that’s been spied on the face of that iPhone floating around Vietnam and Northern California.Mendes joins the ranks of David Fincher, Ridley Scott, and Errol Morris, who have all directed commercials for Apple. I'm not saying Apple is extorting these talented helmers, but is it so hard to believe that Fincher and Scott didn't properly dispose of a production assistant's body in the past? Steve Jobs has eyes and ears everywhere… **Puts on tin foil hat. Smears Cheetos dust on video chat camera** (/Film)
"You ain't got nothin', Mendes."The glittered gloves are off and the jazz hands are flyin'! "You Think You Can Dance" judge and Hairspray director Adam Shankman wants the job of making Oz, the Great and Powerful faaaaaaaaaabulous. Sam Mendes is currently circling the project, but Shankman brought his slap and tickle fight to Twitter. He's retweeting the tweets of his fans, who I have just dubbed "Shankmaniacs!" (exclamation point necessary), and building up a strong front. Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden is one impressionable tweeter on Team Shankman. That guy loves Chicken Nuggets, so Shankman probably has the gig on lock.(Vulture)
