BOND 23 (News Updates)

  • BOND 23

This has been a very good weekend for all you Bond fans, has news updates just didn’t want to stop coming and it seem that the Sam Mendes project seems to be finally picking up some steam.

Daniel Crag As James Bond

The most concrete story comes from which reports that the film is likely to begin shooting in Istanbul. Turkish Culture Minister Ertugrul Gunay has officially granted access for the crew to shoot in their historic Sultanahmet Square.

"Shooting will start within the next few months," said Gunay. "Rather than closing the square completely, some parts could be partially closed from time to time for the filming. We have to consider our tourists, but we can accommodate foreign film production companies that want to use Turkey as a platform."

The site also mentions that former Bond 23 scribe Peter Morgan claims his "big hook" from the original draft appears to remain intact in the latest draft written by John Logan.

"I hear that an idea, the central idea, is still there but not one similar thing other than that," said Morgan. "I think they've still kept the big hook, which I'm not going to tell you!"

In a bit of casting fluff, Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch made a comment to The Sun on Sunday claiming that he would jump at the chance to play 007 in one of the next Bond films. The actor sounds quite jealous of super spy stars like Daniel Craig and Matt Damon in particular.


"I would absolutely jump at the chance to play that kind of role. I think it would be so much fun. Technically what Matt Damon and Daniel Craig, and all the others before them, do is incredibly hard work... I've been lucky enough to do some quite interesting and diverse characters and roles, but I'd love to try something like that." 

And finally, MTV News let slip earlier this week that VMA award winner ADELE (OH YES!!!) has a new "theme" in the works for November, something she would neither confirm nor deny as Bond related. Nevertheless, our hopes remain high.
