Weekly News: Bond 23 is SKYFALL, New JASON STATHAM Movie, OASIS Reunion?

Monday, 7 November 2011

So finally it’s official after months of speculation relating to the title of the new Bond movie, affectionately named Bond 23 up to Thursday when the movie’s producer Michael G Wilson finally confirmed the movie will indeed be named Skyfall.

Taking a step away from Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace the movie is working on a standalone script which Daniel Craig says is great.  We have known all along that Craig would be back for his third outing as bond and Judi Dench would play his boss.  We know now also that Javier Bardem will play the villain, French actress Berenice Marlohe will probably be the bond girl.  Naomie Harris has been confirmed to play a field agent and Ralph Finnes, Albert Finney and James Whishaw have all Ben confirmed.

The press conference also brought one more thing a little sneak at the synopsis.  Bond’s loyalty to M is tested when her past comes back to haunt her, MI6 is under attack and Bond must destroy the threat no matter how much personal the cost.

The movie begins shooting next week November 7th, shooting will take place in London , China, Turkey and Scotland.  The movie opens in the UK on October 26th 2012 then onto North America November 9th 2012.

Some news on a new Jason Statham movie for you now, Hummingbird is the name and its an action/drama which is due to start shooting early next year.  A quick plot summary, Statham will play an ex Special Forces soldier who becomes trapped in London’s criminal underworld, he gets a chance to escape the life when he assumes someone else’s identity.

This looks really good, right?  I mean Jason Statham has never played an Ex Special Forces soldier in any of his movies has he?  Oh wait there are these.  All the Transporter movies, The Killer Elite, The Mechanic and The Expendables.

Don’t take that as if I won’t like this new movie, I have seen all bar one of the above movies and they are all real kick ass action movies, yes Jason Statham plays it safe but as far as ass kicking in movies goes he tops the bill.

Celebrity tweets can be a little forth coming these day’s, can’t they.  Just the other week Beady Eye’s Liam Gallagher tweeted to say that Oasis would be re-forming in 2015 for the 20th anniversary of their biggest album “What’s The Story (Morning Glory)”, he claimed that it was all his older brother Noel’s idea, sounds good to me.

That was until I saw Noel Gallagher on the Jonathan Ross show the other week, he stated that he had not said that at all and not being on Twitter he was unable to respond quick.  He did tell NME magazine that was the case also, that has brought Liam out fighting saying that once his older sibling realises that he’s not as good without him or indeed the rest of Oasis he would be back on board for the reunion tour.

Considering Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds Album out sold Beady Eye’s debut Different Gear, Still speeding by over 200%, Liam can dream.  I’m off to see Noel and his High Flying Birds next year, so I’ll be letting you know what I think.
