Another new production video has been released online for the 23rd James Bond movie, Skyfall, which manages to reveal plenty of behind-the-scenes footage without spoiling the movie's secretive plot.
Focused on the movie's elaborate production design, the video shows off the elaborate set designs created by Academy Award-winning production designer Dennis Gassner (Bugsy), who also worked on Skyfall's predecessor, 2008's Quantum of Solace. Judi Dench is also interviewed and discusses the feeling of working on the Gassner's detail-oriented sets, including one set in an underground office, while more of the movie's Shanghai sets, revealed in a previous production blog. watch the video and read Sam Mendes' comments about Bardem >> Posted 05.05.12 by Ryan
Production on the 23rd installment of the James Bond franchise has been announced to start on November 7th. And, as rumored, the movie will be titled Skyfall.
Yesterday, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson introduced the cast of the movie including Daniel Craig as the infamous Agent 007, Judi Dench as M, Naomie Harris (28 Days Later, Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy) as Miss Moneypenny, Javier Bardem as the villain, and French model and actress Bérénice Marlohe. Actors Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw (The Tempest) and Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient) were also confirmed.
"We're so delighted to have Sam Mendes direct Skyfall and be working once again with Daniel Craig. We've a great script, an extraordinary cast and an incredibly talented creative team for this latest James Bond adventure," said Wilson and Broccoli in a statement. what is skyfall about? >> Posted 11.04.11 by Ryan
At last year's Cannes Film Festival, actor-writer-director Matthew Butler shopped his short E'Gad, Zombies! to find financing for a feature-length version. Aiding him in his search was Sir Ian McKellen, who narrated and appeared in the 22-minute movie set in 18th-Century England. At the time, director David O. Russell was busy adapting Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but the project, which recently hired Fright Night remake director Craig Gillespie, still has no cast attached.
A year later, Butler's hard work has paid off, as Screen Daily reports that Dame Judi Dench and Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) have joined the cast of the production, which is now titled The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet.
Like E'Gad, Zombies!, the plot of The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet remains the same — a seaside town finds itself the victim of a deadly illness. Butler co-wrote the movie with Tori Hart; both are also serving as producers. Butler is again in Cannes this year talking to sales agents and hopes to start production on the movie later this year in Scotland. watch the E'Gad, Zombies! trailer >> Posted 05.18.11 by Ryan

At the news of Natasha Richardson's tragic death, tributes poured in from Hollywood and Broadway. Judi Dench described the Tony Award winner as "a really great actress" who had "an incredibly luminous quality, that you seldom see, and a great sense of humor."
Richardson appeared in more than 20 films, but is best known for The Parent Trap, Maid in Manhattan, and Nell, in which she starred alongside her husband Liam Neeson. She first appeared on film at the age of four as a bridesmaid in The Charge of the Light Brigade, which starred her mother, Vanessa Redgrave, and was directed by her father, Tony Richardson. In this clip, the actress talks about the joys of working with her mother on 2007's Evening. Posted 03.19.09 by reelz
