Filming start date confirmed for new James Bond movie

The 24th James Bond film will begin filming later this year, with Daniel Craig playing 007 for a fourth time.

Principal photography on the follow-up to Skyfall has been confirmed to start on 6 December 2014, MI6 HQ reports.

Sam Mendes will return to direct the movie, which will be released in UK cinemas on 23 October 2015.

Returning cast members include Ben Whishaw (The Hour) as Q, Ralph Fiennes (Harry Potter) as M, Naomie Harris (Accused) as Eve Moneypenny and Rory Kinnear (Penny Dreadful) as Bill Tanner.

The movie’s script is written by Penny Dreadful creator John Logan, with long-term Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

The main cast members will meet for a table read-through of the shooting script at Pinewood in late November.

Locations are rumoured to include Austria, Rome and Morocco, with studio filming taking place at Pinewood Studios in the UK.

1 - Let’s hope the script is less of a hot mess and doesn’t have plotholes you can drive a fucking Sherman tank through this time!

2 - I want the opening scene to feature M and Bond giving Q a bollocking for getting Dench!M killed, right before they lock him in a cupboard for the rest of the movie…

3 - I want LOTS of flirty banter between Eve, Tanner, M, and Bond - and someone from outside to wonder just who’s sleeping with whom!

On of my favourite comebacks of Clara’s in this episode. I love the fact that although he won’t “take orders” from her, he does actually obey her when she gets her teacher on…

O Captain! My Captain! our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring:
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
O Captain! My Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills;
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding;
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here captain! dear father!
This arm beneath your head;
It is some dream that on the deck,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.
My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still;
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will;
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done;
From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won;
Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells!
But I, with mournful tread,
Walk the deck my captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

- Walt Whitman

First… Carol, thank you for ripping this!!  I have it on Blu-Ray but I can’t rip or cap Blu-Ray… so, again… THANK YOU!!
Second… I watch this particular moment, and all I can see: Judi’s legs!!
:D
What?
Don’t tell me y’all weren’t thinking the same thing!!

*giggles* yep, definitely looking at her lovely, lovely, legs…

I’ve just watched this - and noted that after Sam says “Cut” on Judi’s final scene, Dan lifts her up off the floor so tenderly and carefully…

Denching list of sexiness - part 423 - talking to Lionel

(All Lionel does in this scene is goo about Daisy’s prettiness and I feel like hitting him so bad because look at her! Why would you want anyone else?)

I frequently want to smack Lionel upside the head, I must confess - but he goes out of his way to be extremely obtuse in this episode!

I love her “Bless” - it’s too funny, the way Alec’s so indecisive…

Oh you beautiful, gorgeous man - c’mere and let me do naughty things with you!

Ahem.

There is an unwritten code that women in fantasy novels must not be older than thirty, or they’re all the grandmotherly types over sixty, but rarely are there any in the forty to fifty range. There are a few exceptions to this rule, but since the 1990s, female characters over forty seem to have faded into the background scenery, and very few are protagonists.

Part of this is our current culture. I see it every time I go online. So-and-so actress is aging well, but only because she appears as if she is ten or twenty years younger. Helen Mirren and Dame Judi Dench are the exceptions to this rule. Both of these ladies have played chrome-assed bitches in their films. They don’t waffle or give long, righteous speeches about women and what they need. They wade right into a situation and get the job done.

I haven’t read the rest of this article on older women characters in fantasy fiction yet - because reading the comment about Judi made me think of M - who definitely qualifies as “a chrome-assed bitch” who wades in and gets the job done, so I had to blog it.

Off to read the rest…

Dame Judi Dench attends stained glass window ceremony in Bletchingley

It’s amazing how you can see her warmth and loving attention glowing from her in the 2nd pic. Or maybe that’s just my love-sick brain.

It’s not just your love-sick brain. Or if it is, it’s not JUST your love-sick brain - mine’s love-sick too!

OMG! Seriously?! Give me this - NOW PLEASE!!

pers-books: Quote a bit of my writing at me. Find that one story of mine that you really like, and find a sentence or a paragraph that presses your prose-buttons in the right way, and comment here with it.
What do you like (you’re allowed to choose more than one if you can’t choose just one!)? Well, as it cut off my ‘answer’… here we be again:
“Perhaps ‘adorable’ is the wrong adjective,” Bond suggests, a smile tugging at the corners of his mouth. “I think she’s magnificent.” He reaches down and rubs the back of one ear with his fingertip, and the cat begins to purr, quietly at first, then more loudly. He becomes absorbed in his action and doesn’t see the wide-eyed looks his companions are giving him: Eve looks jealous, Q is startled, and Tanner is intrigued.
Bond crouches down so that he’s nearly at eye level with the cat. “You’re a proper queen, aren’t you?” he says softly, and the cat head butts his hand, making him chuckle. “The Egyptians used to worship cats, and I can quite see why.” The others can only stare as Bond begins tugging at her ears and tickling her under the chin, murmuring to her so quietly that they can’t hear the words.
This is the fic I read when I want a smile. It’s my happy go to fic.

- Aw, thanks hon. That fic does seem very popular. Which amuses me ‘cos it’s such a mad idea. But I had fun writing it.
