And the best thing is, if you really bump into him and you start gasping and turn pink over and over and get sweating you can blame the jogging-thing for it and not your infantil crush on a man you don't know in reality :twisted: :P :lol:

Stunt double/actor Marvin Campbell told James Bond Nederland at the collectorfair in Utrecht that he is in Bond 22. He does several stunts in the new James Bond movie.

A few members of the crew from James Bond Nederland where at the VerzamelaarsJaarbeurs last Saturday November 17th 2007. We had an interview with Marvin Campbell. Campbell was the stunt double for Sebastien Foucan in Casino Royale (2006). His action scenes where at the foot sequence at the beginning of the movie at the Bahamas. This location doubled for Madagascar.

The complete interview with Marvin Campbell will be released shortly. The most important part of the interview was the moment that Marvin told us about Bond 22. He explains and answers the following question:

Question: “Is there a possibility that we could expect you in Bond 22 and could you tell us more about you`re roll in the new movie?”

Answer: “Yes gentleman I`m in. But I can`t tell you more than this: Bond 22 will be more realistic than Casino Royale. Most of the members of the production team will return in the new movie.”

Most of the members of the production team... We could expect the return of stunt coordinator Gary Powell and the three stunt doubles for Daniel Craig: Ben Cooke, Adam Kirley and Kai Martin. (Campbell confirmed the stunt doubles for Craig as well.) Marvin was the stunt double for Foucan in the embassy of Mobutu as well. (November 17th 2007)

/ The Bond Films / (2008) Bond 22 / Latest News / Report: Mathieu Amalric Cast As 'Bond 22' Villain
Fox News claims casting is "a done deal"

Written by Matt Weston on 17 Nov, 2007

According to Fox News’ FOX411 column, French actor Mathieu Amalric has been cast as the villain in the next James Bond film.


Mathieu Amalric
Columnist Roger Friedman claims “that was the word” at a lunch this week for Le Scaphandre Et Le Papillon (The Diving Bell And The Butterfly), in which Amalric stars. Friedman writes, “Even though sources insist it’s true, Amalric would neither confirm nor deny.”

“Anyway, expect a formal announcement shortly. This is a done deal.”

While the source of this rumour is not unquestionable, there are some elements to the report that make it stand out. For a start, 43-year-old Amalric starred in 2005’s Munich, alongside Daniel Craig; he played the son of Moonraker villain, Michael Lonsdale’s character (curiously, in Le Scaphandre Et Le Papillon, he plays the son of Never Say Never Again baddie, Max Von Sydow).

Secondly, Eva Green suggested last year that Bond 22’s villain would be none other than Vesper Lynd’s French-Algerian boyfriend, something screenwriter Paul Haggis recently refused to deny. Amalric’s age, nationality and appearance all gel with this.

His casting would also continue the practice of hiring relatively unknown European actors, which worked so successfully in last year’s Casino Royale.

Other rumoured candidates for the role include James Bond #6 candidate, Goran Visnjic and Swedish actor, Rafael Edholm.

Jesper Christensen, who played Casino Royale’s Mr White - last seen confronted by James Bond at the end of the film - is also set to return.

It’s all worth taking with a grain of salt, so keep watching CommanderBond.net for any developments, confirmations or denials on this Bond 22 rumour.


Mathieu AMALRIC as Bond Villain ... ??? :shock: :shock: another rumor I think !

Kate Bush song in Golden Compass

Kate Bush has recorded a new song for the soundtrack to the Golden Compass, based on Philip Pullman's book.
Lyra was written and produced by Bush, featuring Oxford's Magdalen College choir. It will be her first new material since 2005.

The song is named after lead character Lyra Belacqua, played in the movie by Dakota Blue Richards.

Starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig, the film and its soundtrack will be released next month.

Bush's last new material appeared on the critically acclaimed album Aerial, her first album for 12 years.

Her song will feature over the film's end credits.

Directed by About A Boy's Chris Weitz, the movie is an adaptation of the first book in Philip Pullman's successful fantasy trilogy.

Its name is the US title of the original book, Northern Lights.

So we never run out of stuff we can spent our money on :lol:

The second, Daniel Craig - Ultimate Professional, by Daniel O’Brien, is due for release on 1 May. Retailing for $27.95, this hardback is published by Reynolds & Hearn. The blurb follows:
YOU KNOW HIS NAME - not only as the latest James Bond in Casino Royale, but also as XXXX in Layer Cake, Ben Driscoll in The Invasion and Lord Asriel in The Golden Compass. Yet Daniel Craig has long been recognised as one of the best British actors of his generation, a committed professional who is passionate about his work and has often shunned the lure of easy money in Hollywood blockbusters in favour of more challenging roles in low-budget European films.
Daniel Craig - Ultimate Professional takes an in-depth look at the career of the pub landlord’s son who made his acting debut at the age of six and rose to prominence through roles such as the tormented Geordie Peacock in Our Friends In The North, the schizophrenic Ray in Some Voices, the mercenary archeologist Alex West in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, the amorous carpenter Darren in The Mother, and the murderous Perry Smith in Infamous.
Fully illustrated throughout, Daniel Craig - Ultimate Professional also includes 16 pages of colour photos of the actor who was voted the sexiest man in the world in a recent poll.

From Northern Lights to The Golden Compass: Philip Pullman's bestselling novel comes to the big screen

Martyn Palmer
AT FIRST, EVA GREEN WAS quite intimidated by Philip Pullman. “Well, wouldn't you be?” she asks with an English accent that barely has a trace of her Parisian roots. “The man is a genius and when you meet him he's like an academic, a don or something...”

Green, best known for playing Vesper Lynd in the last James Bond movie Casino Royale, joined a stellar cast — including 007 himself, Daniel Craig, as Lord Asriel and Nicole Kidman as Mrs Coulter — in the director Chris Weitz's big-screen version of Pullman's book The Golden Compass (published as Northern Lights in Britain).

Pullman, a frequent visitor to Shepperton Studios, was apparently happy to stand on the sidelines and watch proceedings. “The first time I met him he knocked on my dressing-room door,” recalls the 27-year-old Green, who plays the 400-year-old witch Serafina Pekkala. “I opened it and he was standing there and said [adopts deep voice]: ‘Let's talk about Serafina...' I thought: ‘Oh my God, does he think I'm going to be all right?'

“But he was lovely. He's very articulate and very enigmatic but he's a sweet man and I hope he won't be disappointed. He was like a child and kept saying ‘Oh I love that scene...' It must be amazing when you are the author and you see your words come alive in front of your eyes.”

It must indeed. Although Weitz, a Cambridge-educated American, faces the far more daunting task of pleasing not only Pullman, but the army of fans of his trilogy His Dark Materials, and a studio, New Line, which has invested more than £75 million in the project and is planning two sequels if the first film is a success.

Weitz, 38, was making About A Boy in London in 2002 when a friend suggested that he read Pullman. “I loved the scope of the books,” he says. “They are incredibly ambitious and by the third book they kind of expand into this vast Miltonic scale. It was great storytelling and it was clear it wouldn't be a problem to adapt.”

He's right. At the heart of The Golden Compass is a great adventure — a young girl, Lyra, who believes she is an orphan, is raised among academics in an imaginary Oxford where she runs wild with the street urchins and gypsy children.

When numerous children are kidnapped — including Lyra's friend Roger — by a sinister group known as the Gobblers, rumours abound that they are being taken to the North, where they are they are subjected to grisly experiments. Lyra vows to rescue them.

All well and good, but bringing Pullman's exotic characters to life on screen — human beings whose souls manifest themselves as animals (known as daemons), flying witches, talking bears — and surreal cityscapes of London and Oxford and the North Pole, was another matter.

Weitz was well aware of this, of course. He signed up to direct only to announce a few months later that he had resigned. “The technical challenges of making such a project are more than I can undertake at this point,” he said in 2004.

There would be another director, Anand Tucker, briefly attached and a Tom Stoppard screenplay commissioned before Weitz came back on board in early 2006 and wrote his own screenplay. He has obviously changed his mind about those technical challenges.

“We are on the very edge in terms of what we can achieve with the visuals in this film,” he says. “It couldn't have been done before in terms of what the audience expect.” The actors spent a lot of their time acting in front of a green screen — basically a blank canvas to which computer generated images, daemons, talking bears, airships, are added in the editing suite.

“It can be a bit strange,” the 13-year-old Dakota Blue Richards, who plays Lyra, says. “There wouldn't be anything there except maybe a stick with a little ball on it and you would have to pretend that it was an animal or something. And sometimes they got an actor to dress up so that you had someone to say the lines to.”

Craig also had to do his stint in front of the green screen but, he says: “Chris and his team also built some fantastic sets at Shepperton and we did some wonderful location work on the mountains in Switzerland.”

There was another challenge for the director. Before filming started he managed to raise a few eyebrows by commenting that the film would play down references to the Church and religion.

This is one of the most controversial aspects of Pullman's book, with its philosophical themes about spirituality wrapped up inside a cracking good yarn. The Church is behind the plot to kidnap and experiment on children and is out to crush individuality and freedom.

Cynics feared that a studio with its eye on the box office wouldn't want to risk alienating Christian groups with such content.

At the time of writing, the finished film had not been screened. A ten-minute preview was shown at the Cannes Film Festival and looked fantastic but it was impossible to tell exactly how Weitz had tackled the anti-dogma themes.

“I don't think Philip Pullman is an anti-religious writer,” the director says. “But I think he doesn't like structures of authority and, directly, the film addresses that stuff. I don't think it's the kind of movie that would offend a Christian, a religious person. But at the same time I think that people who love Pullman's books because of their iconoclasm won't be disappointed.”

Pullman still hasn't made his view clear on the film treatment. But he has obviously been a strong supporter of Weitz and his cast, with regular trips to the set and a visit to the Cannes festival. For the director, Pullman was simply the most valuable resource of all.

“It was a lot of fun for me because he is one of my favourite authors,” Weitz says. “I e-mailed him before I even got the job when I thought I would “clear” it with him. Did he want a movie made? What kind of movie did he want? What mattered to him?

“You can either be scared of your living authors or you can try, because you love the books, to embrace their choices as much as possible and take their guidance about how you are going to go about translating their work. As it happens he is a very practical man who understood the differences between different genres, so it's been a really fruitful collaboration for me.”

Doubtless for Pullman, too. And there's a huge audience waiting to find out exactly how fruitful.

The Golden Compass is released on December

Daniel and Nicole in German Magazine Park Avenue

http://www.parkavenue.de/


looks similar to the article of the W-Magazine of last February :wink:



And the online version shows that:

No Comment – The “Only a Film Couple” Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman

Until now, the only thing between Nicole Kidman and the smart Bond actor has been their “artistic collaboration”, say the agents of both stars. It seems that the beautiful Australian and the rather direct Brit Daniel Craig are acting together in the sci-fi film Invasion and a fantasy movie. And pretty intensively in The Golden Compass, too, where one farewell scene at a fictitious North Pole really sets a somewhat icy landscape sizzling. The two stars otherwise appear to be quite impressed with each other, too. Daniel Craig says of Nicole Kidman: “She turns me on. Not in a sordid, horrible way–well, come to think of it.” The latter might prove difficult, reading between the lines. The married Australian describes her fellow actor as “genuine”, an assertion he ignores at their joint interview by putting his fingers in his ears. “The thing about Daniel is that he absolutely genuine. He always says what he thinks, straight out – that’s something I value highly. And he also has a great sense of humour.” Yet the photos taken during the interview speak quite another language. Jenny Cooney Carrillo tells why some of the pictures will not be revealed to the public in the cover story of the latest edition of PARK AVENUE.
