Sony Emails Reveal New Bond Movie SPECTRE Is Way Over Budget

When hackers broke into Sony's computer system, they stole a ton of information including emails from MGM president Jonathan Glickman, as MGM is a subsidiary of Sony Pictures Entertainment. Those internal memos contain some juicy information regarding the next James Bond film, Spectre. Most alarming, Glickman is worried about the film's immense budget. He says it currently "sits in the mid $300Ms," and wants the producers to cut it down to $250 million. CNN came across these emails and has this bit of additional info, "The shooting period already costs $50 million more than the previous film, Skyfall."

Glickman provided some suggestions to bring down the budget:


  • Villa in Rome? It's a nighttime scene, so try doing it in London instead.
  • There's fighting on a train! Again! But use fewer carriages -- three instead of four.
  • Forget the dramatic finale in the rain. It'll lower the cost of visual/special effects.
  • Earn an extra $6 million by showing "the more modern aspects" of Mexico to maximize "the Mexican incentive." (The makers of Spectre are getting paid to film there.)

Glickman comes off fairly sensible as he recognizes that fans of the series expect a big-budget spectacular, but he has to do what he can to reign in the spending. "This is not about 'nickel and diming' the production," Glickman wrote to producer Barbara Broccoli. She wrote back, "cannot find the cemetery or villa in the UK," and she refused to back down on 4 train carraiges.Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal jumped into the discussion with, "It's insane and you know with no script this movie is gonna go overbudget."

Ridiculous........Why does a Bond movie cost more than Dawn of the Apes, when visually speaking Bond isn't even in the same league.

... and hasn't the last few Bond films been partially paid for by advertising products?

The last bond flick was abysmal, save for the cinematography. I'd love to see them stick to a $20mil budget.

I really enjoyed Casino Royale and thought that I'd finally found a Bond I didn't hate and then Solace happened....and then Skyfalll and it just keeps getting worse. I have lost all love for Bond movies that Royale had created.

Oh yeah you caught that little tid bit too. They locked down a big cast with no script and even held a big press conference this week to announce it all, the budget isn't locked and there isn't even a script. I think they start shooting very soon...

Batista was in the teaser? I must have missed it. Great teaser though! Doesn't reveal too much, I've no clue what it's about. Very intrigued on this new enemy, seems like they're a very large group.

I don't know, I didn't watch it. But since he's supposed to be one of the big bads I figured they'd have showed him in the trailer but most likely they realized what I've always known, that Boretista is in fact so boring that he can't even be shown in a trailer because a 1 second clip would feel like a 4 minute trailer on its own.

Is Damien Lewis the Next James Bond?
Today’s James Bond news comes not from actors, directors, or producers involved in the franchise, nor intrepid reporters calling in favors and digging for leads, but rather from bookmakers in the UK. Seemingly out of nowhere, Homeland star Damien Lewis’ 007 stock has risen from a long-shot to a second-place favorite behind Idris Elba. While I had no idea that people placed bets on such things, it’s a curious cultural phenomenon and an interesting possibility going forward.

As THR reports, Lewis was previously at 25/1 odds to fill the shoes of the super-spy but has jumped up to a 3/1 shot, placing him ahead of Tom Hardy (4/1), Henry Cavill (5/1) and Michael Fassbender (7/1). As far as I know, this all amounts to little more than financially backed wish-listing, but we know Lewis would be interested in the part since back in 2013 he joked that the “Scottish heritage outlined in Skyfall had ‘paved the way perfectly for a red-headed Bond.’” But is the door even open for a new Bond since Daniel Craig has become the face of the franchise’s recent resurgence?


Well now perhaps that’s the more interesting question. Though Ian Fleming’s Bond property has enjoyed a cinematic run of more than 50 years, it was only recently that MGM and Sony partnered up, starting with the successful revisit to Casino Royale. Craig shook his martinis in the follow-up films Quantum of Solace and Skyfall, and will appear in Sam Mendes’ Spectre this November. However, the 24th Bond film marks the end of the studios’ partnership, which has resulted in a bidding war among contenders for the lucrative property. Mendes was looking likely to helm the 25th film, just as likely as Craig was to return as Bond, but with the property rights up in the air at the moment, nothing is certain.

You've got to be kidding me, the contenders for the next Bond are Idris Elba, Damien Lewis, Tom Hardy, Henry Cavill and Michael Fassbender? I'm pretty ok with any of those choices...now if they could just make another Bond movie I enjoyed as much as Royale. Since I've hated everything before and since.

Both are so damn cool, that I'd probably be just as happy with either but the idea of Idris doing a movie that doesn't involve a crazy stalker, would be a nice change.

Daniel Craig Says He’d Rather Kill Himself Than Do Another Bond Movie

There’s been endless headlines speculating about who could play the next James Bond, and now the current famous superspy has stepped forward with his thoughts on the role.

In an interview with TimeOut, Daniel Craig spoke candidly about the role and its future.

“Look, I don’t give a f—. Good luck to them,” Craig said when asked if he cared who played Bond next. “All I care about is that if I stop doing these things we’ve left it in a good place and people pick it up and make it better.”

Right now, the blue-eyed Bond, who appears next in “Spectre,” can’t fathom doing another 007 film.

“Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists,” Craig said. “No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.”

Craig went on to say that if he were to decide to go ahead with another Bond movie that “it would only be for the money.”

Whenever he does choose to hang up the Aston Martin keys, Craig did say that he would have one bit of advice for his successor.

“Don’t be s—,” Craig said. “You’ve got to step up. People do not make movies like this any more. This is really rare now. So don’t be s—.”

I can't believe it. This is a great role that he should be honored to play. I'm kind of disappointed to hear him say that since he's my favorite Bond yet. WHHHHYYYY Daniel?! Sad

I'd understand if it was time for him to move on but he could have maybe said it better. "slash my wrists" Geez! Is it the context? Maybe he was joking during the interview? Feels like the guy went full psycho in that article.

Anyway, still looking forward to watching this and hopefully it comes close to Casino Royale if not a close second.

Would rather slash his wrists and would only play Bond again for the money, that is someone who needs to get the fuck out of the role, lol.

I bet they still have some huge titles to drop because I believe they've still got another 30 titles to release and they promised a lot of bombshell titles. Mockingjay Part 2 will probably be up soon and I'm hoping for Force Awakens.

I think it's very likely now for Force Awakens to be on there. There aren't that many big movies that have come out lately for it not to be one of the 30. They've got the big ones out of the way already and I don't know what the remaining 30 could be. Only thing I can think of is The Big Short.

Watched it last night, I liked it. Although there wasn't anything different about it. It didn't outdo Casino Royale. Better than Quantum of Solace though.

I thought Bellucci would have a bigger role, her screen time was very small. Lea Seydoux did shine though and the most interesting role I've seen her in, saw her in MI: Ghost Protocol the last time I think. She was so sexy and elegant in this as a Bond girl.

I think what disappointed me the most was Christoph Waltz's character. I thought he'd be a much more complicated character and villain. Maybe I had too high expectations going in.

Anyone watch it yet?

Have you still not seen Lea in Blue is the Warmest Color? Twisted Evil

The only person who can write for Waltz is Tarantino. Nobody seems to have any idea what to do with him because every time I've see him in anything else, I'm left disappointed with the character.

They got Waltz to play the most infamous villain in the franchise.

Just finished this. Decided it was worth a spin now it's on Netflix.

I actually didn't mind it. A very slow burn, but enjoyed it much more than I thought.

Disappointing nearing the end though. Bond walking through the halls to see the printed faces of all his dead friends/coworkers etc on the wall - I was half hoping the last room was Madeleine's actual head. That would have been awesome. Twisted Evil

Could have done with a bit more Monica Bellucci too.

I agree with Wylde though. Waltz should hire Tarantino as his personal dialogue writer for each non-Tarantino film he's in. Tarantino-dialogue or bust should be in all his contracts.

I agree, more Monica Bellucci would have been awesome. She was barely in it.

Waltz deserved a better written character for sure.

I wish Waltz only worked for QT, then I wouldn't need to bother with his other appearances and the inevitable disappointment with the writing.
