On the literary roots of John Logan, Sam Mendes and JA Bayona’s new Showtime series.
Did somebody say “psycho-sexual”?
Naomie Harris is about to launch into doing press for Mandela: The Long Walk To Freedom so I dare say she’s going to face a lot of repetitive questioning about this.
23 James Bond film on Blu-ray are currently 63% off. But probably not for long.
Releases dates for the UK and the US confirmed and a comment from Sam Mendes on his return.
Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was a musical all along, with the lyrics to several songs right there on the page.
The next collaboration between Skyfall’s Sam Mendes and John Logan is to be Penny Dreadful, a victorian era “erotic horror” show for Showtime.
And how many more films will Sam Mendes sign on for?
This could be some time as Mendes has commitments to theatre which will see him through something like the next twelve months.
Seeing as Sam Mendes has quite conclusively rebuffed their offers to return for more, it seems that the James Bond producers have approached Chris Nolan with an offer to direct the next episode.
It looks like the old two-year pattern from years gone by might not be so easy to stick to these days.
Last we heard he was 75% sure to come back. So why did he turn it down?
Previous intel on the future of James Bond suggested that John Logan, the screenwriter who finished off Skyfall, had cooked up a two-part storyline. This was reportedly going to be set to be spread across Bond movies 24 and 25.
Showtime are investing in Mendes’ monster mash.
I’d rather see Sam Mendes direct Bond 24 than anything else, I think.
Jekyll and Hyde join the back of the queue.
Old style pride, chutzpah and élan, but fuelled a little bit by anger.
Michael Moran’s seen Skyfall, and we calmed him down just enough to tell you about it. And, like 007′s classic DB5, there isn’t a spoiler in sight.
