Anne Hathaway is ready to Get Smart again

25 year old actress Anne Hathaway is entusiastic about reprising her Agent 99 role in an eventual Get Smart sequel:

I would love to do a second one. But I haven’t heard if we’re going to. I hope we get to. I really loved playing Agent 99, it would be fun to do all the training again, and hanging out with all those boys was so much fun.

I actually haven’t seen Get Smart yet, so I can’t really express my enthusiasm or lack thereof. The actress will next be seen in the drama Rachel Getting Married, which will come out on limited release in the US October 3rd.

Which would you rather? Get Smart 2 or The Princess Diaries 3? How about Brokeback Mountain 2: Lesbian Edition and The Devil Wears Gucci?

Fun Stuff: James Bond Coke Zero commercial

A couple of days ago we reported that you’ll be able to hear an instrumental version of the Quantum Of Solace theme song Another Way To Die in Coke commercials. Well, the ad has hit the web and I’m not too impressed, but I will wait for the full version as sung by Alicia Keys before I make up my mind. What do you guys think?

The Return Of Xander Cage?!

Action star Vin Diesel (read why you should give his latest movie Babylon A.D. a second chance here) definitely has comeback on his mind. After returning for the fourth Fast & Furious movie and stating his confidence in making the Riddick sequels, Vin is currently in talks to return to his third franchise in xXx 3: The Return Of Xander Cage. The film will be directed by original helmer Rob Cohen (The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor).

The question now is, how will this sequel work? In the 2005 flop xXx: State Of The Union, also known as xXx²: The Next Level, which didn’t feature Vin’s involvement, Xander Cage was revealed to have been (SPOILER ALERT) killed during his Bora Bora holiday at the end of the first film. I’m sure they’ll figure something out so the actual real question is: are you excited for xXx 3 with Vin Diesel? Ice Cube cameo anyone?

Alicia Keys has seen Quantum Of Solace, says it’s “off the chain”

While promoting her promising new film The Secret Life Of Bees (trailer here), singer/actress Alcia Keys (The Nanny Diaries), who is singing Quantum Of Solace‘s theme song Another Way To Die, has revealed she has seen the new Bond film and it’s obviously great:

“The movie starts with this crazy car chase scene and it’s bananas. [Then] it starts with the song and it’s just perfect. Perfect,” Keys exclaims. “So, it’s not as good as ‘The Secret Life of Bees,’ but I enjoyed it.”

So, wait the movie starts, and then it starts again? Anyway, you’ll be able to hear an instrumental version of Another Way To Die in Coca-Cola commercials, marking one of the strangest tie-ins I’ve ever seen. “Get me a coke, shaken but not stirred”.

New Trailer: Quantum Of Solace

Incredible, simply incredible…The first, “teaser” trailer for Quantum Of Solace did just that, it teased, in a perfect way. Now, the full trailer delivers everything one could possibly want and more. 2006’s Casino Royale was arguably the best 007 movie ever, and Quantum Of Solace looks like it will be as good, if not better. One of the best movies of the year? You can count on it.

Quantum Of Solace directly follows the events of Casino Royale as James Bond tries to come to terms with Vesper Lynd’s loss, and the MI6 look deeper into the organization previous villain Le Chiffre was working for. Daniel Craig returns as James Bond, along with Casino Royale actors Judi Dench, Giancarlo Giannini, Jeffrey Wright, and Jesper Christensen. Newcomers to this outing include French actor Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell And The Butterfly) as the main villain, as well as relative newcomers Olga Kurylenko (Hitman) and Gemma Arterton (RocknRolla) as Bond girls.

The movie was written by the Casino Royale team of Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Paul Haggis, and directed by the versatile and talented Marc Forster (The Kite Runner) who makes his first foray into action cinema with this film. Quantum Of Solace will premiere in France, Sweden and the UK on October 31st, and you can bet I’ll be first in line.

First Pic: OSS 117 Rio Ne Répond Plus

The first pic for hotly anticipated spy comedy OSS 117: Rio Ne Répond Plus (literal translation OSS 117: Rio Isn’t Answering Anymore) has just hit the web. The 30 million dollar (big budget) movie will follow the hugely successful OSS 117: Cairo, Nest Of Spies and will premiere in France and Belgium in April 2009.

Superstar Jean Dujardin returns as special agent Hubert Bonisseur De La Bath in the film which, according to him, will spoof the Roger Moore Bond flicks, whereas the first movie was influenced by the Sean Connery ones (who really loves the movie by the way). Whatever happened to George Lazenby?

The films are inspired, but actually have very little in common with, a series of more serious-minded novels started by prolific author Jean Bruce in 1949.

New 007 movie pushed back one week in US. Collective head scratching from fans.

Following Warner Bros’ decision to move the next Harry Potter movie’s release from November 2008 to  July 2009, Hollywood studios have decided to play the “Release date shuffle game”. First Twilight is pushed up, and now Quantum Of Solace is pushed back…huh?! Yes, the next Bond movie will now open on November 14th in the US instead of November 7th. Mr Jeff Blake, who works marketing and distribution for Sony Pictures had this to say:

We believe Nov. 14 is a great date that allows us to play straight through Thanksgiving and right into Christmas. We believe this decision will give the public a wider opportunity to see the film over the holiday.

Ok Jeff, whatever you say. Fun fact however: Quantum Of Solace will open in France and the UK on October 31st, and in more than half the world between November 5th and November 7th. So I’ll see the movie half a month before anyone in America does, high five to me!
