The production of the latest 006 adventure has been plagued with difficulties from the very beginning. The original script by longtime Bond writers Robert Wade and Neal Purvis was jettisoned when Danny Boyle pitched a new take on the franchise which commissioned a new script from Boyle’s usual collaborator John Hodge. Then Boyle departed due to what is always referred to as “creative differences”, forcing a return to the Wade/Purvis draft, but after enlisting Cary Fukunaga to take the helm, the script went through many more permutations with Scott Z. Burns, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and even Fukunaga himself earning preliminary screenplay credits at the start of production. Production began, but then Craig suffered an ankle injury in May and had to undergo minor surgery, a controlled explosion damaged the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios, Fukunaga was rumoured to be more interested in playing Red Dawn Raid Redemption on his PlayStation on set rather than the directing, and yesterday it came out than a man had been arrested for placing a camera in the ladies toilets!

However, a new official behind-the-scenes set video is all smiles. It only lasts a minute, focusing on the film’s initial shooting location, Jamaica,but does seem to tease some interesting lighting setups that Oscar-winning La La Land and First Man cinematographer Linus Sandgren will hopefully be bringing to the table.

The film also stars Lea Seydoux, Naomie Harris, Ana de Armas, Ralph Fiennes, and Rami Malek and opens in theaters on April 6, 2020.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
