The best film news we have had for a while has hit us today. Jammy Toast favourite, Daniel Craig, has changed his mind and is set to sign up for his fifth Bond movie – with Adele lined up to join him as long as her voice is repaired. The actor, 48, claimed he would “rather slash my wrists” than play 007 again but his U-turn came after a host of British stars were tipped to replace him. Another Jammy Toast favourite, Idris Elba, was one of the stars lined up as a possible Bond replacement.
Ihad no idea that Daniel Craig was born in Chester but apparently he started acting in school plays when he was young. He was encouraged to try his hand at acting by his mother who would often take him to the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool. He moved to London when he was 16, where he worked at odd jobs while pursuing his acting career. Hollywood discovered him in 2001, when he was chosen to co-star with Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider. He co-starred with Paul Newman and Tom Hanks in Road to Perdition. In 2004 he was cast as a cocaine dealer in Layer Cake, and it was this movie that showed he had what it would take to become the legendary and mythical James Bond. Casino Royale became the most successful James Bond movie, followed by Quantum of Solace then our favourite Bond film; Skyfall, before his last outing in Spectre. He has also starred in another of our favourite films; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Today, Daniel calls into Jammy Toast to have a chat with Eric…
The first full-length trailer for the 24th official James Bond film, Spectre, has been released on YouTube. The two-and-a-half minute clip – which sees Daniel Craig reprise his role as the superspy for a fourth time – gives a closer look at the film after a teaser was released back in March. Featuring car chases, exploding planes and shady crime organisations, it bares all the hallmarks of the classic Bond genre.
Everyone here at Jammy Toast is excited for the new James Bond film, Spectre, after watching the latest trailers. Daniel Craig is set to return as Bond for the fourth time whilst Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes and Rory Kinnear will reprise their roles from the last instalment, ‘Skyfall’. Sam Mendes is at the helm as director and the likes of Andrew Scott, Christoph Waltz and Dave Bautista are new additions to the cast. It was also recently revealed that Stephanie Sigman has joined the cast. The model-turned-actress is set to star in the 24th James Bond film, a post on the movie’s official Twitter account confirmed.
There seems to be good deal of speculation lately over who is going to be the next James Bond after Daniel Craig hangs up his Beretta. This is mostly due to the Sony hacking which revealed that Daniel Craig is only committed to making one more movie. So now that private emails have been leaked online, the idea of Idris Elba becoming the next 007 has stepped up a gear. This makes it difficult for us here at Jammy Toast because Daniel Craig is our favourite James Bond ever, but Idris Elba is also one of our favourite actors who was brilliant in the role of Luther. What should we do?
Everyone sat around the telly at lunch time today to hear the details of the latest James Bond film. Since Daniel Craig has taken over the role he has given the series a whole new lease of life and everyone here at Jammy Toast loves him for it. We are also pleased to hear that Sam Mendes will return to direct the new film which will be called Spectre. The title was revealed at the launch event at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, where principal photography is due to begin on Monday. Daniel Craig will play 007 for the fourth time in the film which will be released in the UK on 23th October 2015.
The bear’s favourite spy is back today with the release of Skyfall. Daniel Craig returns for a third outing as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 in the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, James Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. It looks like being the best film featuring Daniel Craig who is already our favourite James Bond ever.
As most of you will be aware, here at the bear sanctuary we are big film and television buffs. There is nothing we love more than a good film and nothing we hate more than a bad one. This year we have already heard the great news that Matt Smith is to carry on as Dr Who, even if Amy Pond is leaving, and now today we hear the news that Daniel Craig has said he will stay on as James Bond for as long as he can.
