Rumours surrounding Oscar winning actor Christoph Waltz claim he has landed quite an important part in the forthcoming BOND 24.
Jez Butterworth, writer for the recent hit Edge of Tomorrow is making some last minute tweaks to the Bond 24 script. It is rumoured that he had a hand in the scripting of Skyfall, but was left uncredited.
As casting gets underway, rumours surrounding the casting of BOND 24's main henchman has hit the news. [...]
French actress Lea Seydoux has landed the role of one of the leading Bond girls in the upcoming 24th James Bond adventure.
Will Bond 24 have rival competition from Universal? Back in April, Universal announced production of a film, which plot and characters bare too similar to those in the 007 films.
As reported earlier on this year, Austria will play host to key action scenes in the forth-coming BOND 24 and it seems preparations are already being made in Obertilliach ready for when shooting begins there in January or February.
With the script complete, the producers have now turned to casting. They are currently looking for a henchman with some striking similarities to Jaws.
It seems our dreams for a Craig-era ski chase is finally going to happen. Recent reports have confirmed that 'a film' will be shooting by a small snow-capped mountain in Austria.
The press reports have stated that this will be the replacement to the scenes originally planned for Norway. Apparently, Bond 24 production will he shooting here for three days throughout January for some wintery action scenes.
It is still unclear whether Obertilliach will be doubling for another location or whether it will be appearing as itself in Bond 24, but Mayor Mathias Scherer wasn't set on giving away any information.
There is also speculation of Sölden being featured in the film too, which is further east of Obertilliach
It has been revealed that the script to the forthcoming 24th James Bond adventure has been completed. We were led to believe that Neal Purvis and Robert Wade had been hired to add a touch of humour to the story, but now appears that John Logan's script had to be written almost completely as it didn't meet the producers' standards.
A reliable source told the Daily Mail...
This would tie in with another piece of information which has been leaked - that a part of Bond 24 would be shot in Norway but has now been changed to the Austrian Alps. Sigmund Elias Holm, a member of the West Norwegian Film Commission believes that financial considerations may have caused the sudden change, but then added "we do not know if the script was modified by artistic reasons or because it was too difficult to film in Norway."
Does this mean that we can expect Daniel Craig's first ski-chase?
It has been hinted that Bond 24 may feature a car chase sequence in the streets of Rome. If everything works out well, Luciano Sovena of the Lazio Film Commission says that shooting will begin at the end of this year.
