    Bond star Léa Seydoux has admitted that she infuriated director Sam Mendes while filming ‘Spectre’, because she was jetting between two film sets. Despite having official dispensation from Bond producer Barbara Broccoli to make ‘It’s Only The End Of The World’ during the last weeks of filming ‘Spectre’, things still got a bit tense, it seems. “The producer [Barbara Broccoli] was very nice – she said, ‘OK, if you really want to make this film, we’ll find a solution’.

    Remember when people HATED Daniel Craig as Bond?

    ‘Casino Royale’ was released back in 2006, so we look back the crazy anti-Craig fan reaction that greeted the announcement he would take over from Pierce Brosnan as 007. The trolling began the moment Daniel Craig arrived by speedboat at the London press conference unveiling him as the new James Bond – wearing a life jacket. Immediately, so-called 007 fans started whinging that James would never be such a wuss, clearly confused that the ‘Layer Cake’ star was a 37-year-old actor from Chester and not a real secret agent.

    Bond: New Report Trashes Daniel Craig $150 Million Rumour

    The rumours that Daniel Craig has been offered $150 million to make two more movies as James Bond are ‘baloney,’ a new report claims. The report goes on to pick holes in the initial Radar Online report which launched the rumour, noting that “the decision to pay Craig such an astronomical fee would not unilaterally fall to Sony,” but production company Eon and studio MGM, who have been at the helm of the series since it began in the 1960s. This is of particular note as Sony’s deal with MGM to co-distribute the series (which began in 2006 on Craig’s first film ‘Casino Royale’) came to an end with 2015′s ‘Spectre.’ While Sony are reportedly keen to renew this deal they have serious competition from Disney, Warner Bros, Paramount and Universal.

    In 1968, George Lazenby had the world at his feet. By chance, he’d met James Bond producer Albert ‘Cubby’ Broccoli in a barber shop, and had landed himself an audition to take over from Sean Connery in 'On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’. Peter Hunt, who was lined up as the director of the follow up to 1967’s 'You Only Live Twice’, Connery’s last appearance as Bond, seemed to agree that his lack of acting experience didn’t matter.

    The big question everyone’s asking is who the next James Bond will be, with ‘Skyfall’ and ‘SPECTRE’ director Sam Mendes declaring the next 007 will be decided by one person alone. Rather than a committee or the public deciding which actor will play Bond, Mendes declared it’s “not a democracy,” saying the choice will be a wildcard that’ll shock everyone. Speaking at Hay Festival, the Oscar-winning director said the choice of the next iconic spy will be down to producer Barbara Broccoli, and her alone.

Set to Radiohead’s unused theme for last year’s 'Spectre’ (we’ll never forgive Sony for picking Sam Smith’s song over it) the video uses iconic imagery from the series, stylised to fit the song and intention of Rauffer’s work. “I really wanted to play on the concept of Luke trying to find himself and true purpose, so the music and inspiration felt fitting,” Rauffer writes in the video’s description.
