christopher nolan directing talks james bond franchise daniel craig barbara broccoli

Holy shaken-not-stirred martinis, batman — our souls are smiling!!!

Barbara Broccoli and Michael G .Wilson, the execs in charge of the James Bond franchise, approached Christopher Nolan about directing the next 007 flick!!

He blew our friggin' minds with Leonardo DiCaprio in Inception and Christian Bale in The Dark Knight trilogy… and now he's in talks to team up with Daniel Craig?!?!

That. Would. Be. Double-Oh-AMAZEBALLZ!!!

Don't get us wrong, Sam Mendes did a fantastic job on Skyfall — especially with his inclusion of Adele — but this could be EPIC!!!

Make it happen, universe! We're counting on U!!

Bond 23 And 24 Officially A Go! MGM Secures Sony Deal!

Filed under: Film FlickersDaniel Craig

Excellent! This means we're secured at least two more!

The future of the Bond franchise was uncertain for quite some there, due to the films' distributors, MGM, having serious financial problems, but luckily, the studio has officially closed a deal with Sony to distribute not only the upcoming, Sam Mendes-directed Bond 23, but the shoe-in follow-up, Bond 24!

According to the official press release from MGM Co-Chairmen and Chief Executive Officers Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum:

“Sony Pictures is the ideal studio partner for us as MGM re-enters the filmmaking business. We have longstanding relationships with Michael and Amy and look forward to what promises to be a prosperous future together.”

And Sony Pictures Chairman and CEO Michael Lynton and Co-Chairman Amy Pascal elaborate:

“In addition to working together on Bond, this deal expands our relationship with MGM as we explore co-financing opportunities on other high-profile projects. Gary and Roger are incredibly thoughtful and experienced leaders who are outstanding creative executives and respected moviemakers. While we are excited to be back in the Bond business, we also look forward to future collaborations and I am confident that this agreement will be long-term, lucrative, and beneficial to both studios. After successfully working on the re-launch of the James Bond franchise with Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, we could not be more proud or privileged to continue our association with Barbara Broccoli, Michael G. Wilson, Daniel Craig, and the talented teams at EON and MGM."

Phew! That was a little touch and go there for a while!

We're just happy that an agreement has been made, and we won't be missing out on any hawt Daniel Craig spy action!

His casting really re-vitalized the franchise, and we want to see as many movies with him in the role as possible! Especially one directed by Sam Mendes!

Now get along and secure the rest of the cast, guys! We want this one to be EPIC!

Has The New Bond Film Founds Its Villain??

Filed under: Film Flickers

michael-sheen-cast-as-james-bond-23-villain

We'll always picture him as the HIGHlarious Wesley Snipes, but we think he definitely has the acting chops to pull this one off!

British actor Michael Sheen, who has been featured on 30 Rock and in the Twilight movies, is reportedly been cast as the new villain in the recently announced new James Bond film, directed by Sam Mendes!

A source explains:

'He brings a real intense and creepy quality to the table.'

The insider also revealed that he recommended to producer Barbara Broccoli by screenwriter Peter Morgan, with whom Sheen has worked on a variety of projects, and she immediately found him to be be the 'perfect fit' for the part!

Nice!

We have a feeling that Bond is going to be back, and better than ever, in this new flick!

Thoughts??

Bond 23 Production Halted!

james-bond-2jb.jpg

Oh no!

But where will we get our fix of Daniel Craig's HAWTNESS??

Due to some serious financial problems, production on the upcoming James Bond film has been suspended indefinitely!

Producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in a statement:

"Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the future of MGM and the failure to close a sale of the studio, we have suspended development on Bond 23 indefinitely."

The studio is reportedly saddled with a $3.7 billion debt and cannot find anybody willing to buy it for the price they're offering.

Craig, says:

"I have every confidence in Barbara and Michael's decision and look forward to production resuming as quickly as possible."

We hope so!

What do U think?? Are U bummed that Bond 23's production is stalled??
