Please let this happen. Please let this happen. Please let this happen.

Goddess Adele was recently made an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, and accidentally let it slip that she would be performing the theme to an upcoming film, and became noticeably flustered when the host inferred that it might be for the new James Bond film!

Filed under: Film FlickersDaniel Craig

Although the future of the James Bond franchise was uncertain for quite some time there, production of the Sam Mendes directed 23rd installment is gearing up, and it's being reported that Daniel Craig's third Bond girl will be none other than Pirates of the Caribbean actress Naomie Harris!

According to a spokesperson from Eon Productions, nothing is official, but the actress has been meeting with filmmakers about the part. Furthermore, the only person other than Craig confirmed for the flick is Judi Dench!

Well, no surprise there!

And Harris can certainly kick ass, as we saw in 28 Days Later, so we think she'll be a solid female lead!

Fingers crossed that the deal works out! We're starting to get psyched!

What do U think?? Are U looking forward to Bond 23?

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

Filed under: Film FlickersDaniel Craig

bond-23-and-bond-24-officially-secure-for-release

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!

MGM And Sony Working On Distribution Deal For Bond 23

mgm and sony in distribution talks over bond

So…is Bond back or isn't he?

Last month, we learned that the new Bond film had been given a release date of Nov 9 2012, yet it appears that MGM is still trying to secure a distribution deal for the film.

Sources say that MGM had previously been talking to Paramount about distribution, but when things didn't work out, they moved on to Sony Pictures, and are now close to securing a deal there.

Looks like the Nov 9 2012 release date for Bond 23 stands. Hopefully they're able to figure out everything asap so they can continue moving forward with the project.

And while you're at it, MGM, why don't you sign a deal with Javier Bardem as well! He'd make a GREAT bad guy!!!
