Ralph Fiennes On the James Bond Novels

Ralph Fiennes

In an interview earlier today with the Daily Record, Ralph Fiennes talked about his love of the James Bond novels, admitting that he "used to be a complete nerd about the books and the detail in them. They are fantastic. There was Fleming's obsession with different kinds of champagne and caviar. He kind of fetishises these things."

Ralph will be playing an unknown character in the upcoming Bond 23 film, Skyfall, released next October. As is expected, he wouldn't reveal much about the character, but he did add that "I'm allowed to say that I'm a government agent." Is he misleading us, or will the Blofeld rumors prove to be wrong...

Tom Mankiewicz's Autobiography Comes Out Next May

My life as Mankiewicz Autobiography

Tom Mankiewicz was a screenwriter, who had a long history with the James Bond series. He was first brought in for Diamonds Are Forever, to rework a screenplay started by Richard Maibaum. The producers thought that having an extra writer to improve the script would help entice Sean Connery back into the role.

Tom wrote the screenplay for the next film, Live and Let Die, alone, before collaborating with Maibaum for a second time on The Man with the Golden Gun. Tom came back to help on The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, but he was uncredited for those two films, and the extent of his work is unknown...

Daniel Craig May Become The Longest Running 007

Daniel Craig

Producer Michael G. Wilson recently did an interview with The People, saying "I'd love Daniel to surpass Roger's record and do eight pictures. A lot of people have said Daniel's been their favourite Bond since Sean Connery and I can't argue with them. He's doing a great job."

This would make Daniel Craig the longest running James Bond actor, knocking Roger Moore (who did 7 films) and Sean Connery (who did 6 films for EON Productions, and 1 unofficial film) off the top of the list...

A picture posted on twitter suggests that the Second Unit crew on Skyfall are filming at the Ascot Racecourse railway station, in Berkshire, England.

More Rumors of Naomie Harris Playing Miss Moneypenny

Naomie Harris Filming for Skyfall

There have been rumors about Naomie Harris playing Miss Moneypenny ever since she was first announced to be part of Skyfall's cast.

The rumors were thought to be dispelled when Naomie's character was revealed to be a field agent named "Eve". However, according to an article today in the Daily Mail, "she starts as a field operative called Eve and then comes inside the organisation as Miss Money-penny, M's right-hand woman..."

Roger Moore Reflects on For Your Eyes Only

Roger Moore, Cubby Broccoli and Michael G Wilson

There's an interesting article in The Telegraph, with Roger Moore reflecting on the filming of For Your Eyes Only, his fifth outing as Bond in 1981. Roger discusses how games of backgammon between himself and producer Cubby Broccoli could keep the crew waiting, and an interesting revelation about Q's role as the bearded priest.

"It is unusual to see a picture of the producer Cubby Broccoli and me on set without a backgammon board in front of us. We used to play during all the breaks from shooting and the directors always had a terrible job getting me back into the set when we were in the middle of a game; if Cubby was winning he absolutely would not let me go..."

Daniel Craig Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

The premiere for Daniel Craig's new film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was held last night at the Leicester Square Odeon in London. Coincidentally, this is the same location of many of the James Bond premieres, a tradition that will likely be continued for Skyfall next year.

Daniel appeared with costar Rooney Mara, who was wearing an elegant white backless dress, made by Riccardo Tisci, contrasting Daniel's thick black leather jacket. Rooney Mara plays Lisbeth Salander in the film, a computer hacker who becomes...

However, it now looks like they may be settling for a location in Wales. Robin Malcolm, owner of Duntrune Castle, said that...
