Annapurna Pictures, the studio that brought us films like Zero Dark Thirty, Her, and this year’s Booksmart, is on the verge of bankruptcy, according to news reports. They have failed to produce any box office hits with their releases. And last year, there were rumors that the studio was in danger of imploding. Now it looks like those rumors are true, as Megan Ellison, the founder of Annapurna Pictures, has “retained a law firm to explore bankruptcy protection.” More on the report below.
Despite the set disasters and injuries, James Bond 25 is still in production for an April 2020 release. Though we still know very little about the film itself, it has recently been revealed that Christoph Waltz would return to reprise his character, Blofield. While that would be a cause for excitement for some, the character was introduced (or re-introduced) in one of the weakest installments of the entire franchise. But there is another rumor going around that suggests that the 007 codename could be passed on to someone else. According to this rumor, James Bond (Daniel Craig) will no longer hold on to that famous number and it will be passed on to none other than Captain Marvel co-star Lashana Lynch. More on the report here below.
Although Bond 25 had a very long and troubled development, it was still able to landCary Joji Fukunaga as director after Danny Boyle stepped down due to creative differences.
With principal photography for Bond 25 set to begin in just a few short days, Fukunaga has announced the full cast that will appear in the latest chapter of the franchise that will see Daniel Craig return for his fifth and final time as James Bond. Additionally, a plot synopsis has also been shared.
It may have taken a while to get to this point, but we are going to get Bond 25. Daniel Craig returns to play the suave British spy one last time. However, he has yet to find out what his next mission will be.
Plot details have remained under wraps, but we now know who 007 might have to face this time around. According to new reports, recent Academy Award-winner Rami Malek could be playing the villain. More on the report below.
