So, it's official now. Pierce Brosnan is James Bond no more. Brosnan is telling the press he was dumped because the people in charge changed their minds about Brosnan halfway through negotiations. So, the question is, who's the next Bond? Brosnan has already said he wants Colin Farrel, but Farrel has gone on the record as saying, "Fuck that." Some people say negotiations have begun with Ewan McGregor. Others say that Julian McMahon is being wooed. (McMahon is star of the TV show "Nip/Tuck" and will soon be seen as Dr. Doom in the movie version of "Fantastic Four.") Plus, Aussies Hugh "Wolverine" Jackman and Eric "Hulk" Bana have been rumoured for ages.
More new info on "Pirates of the Carribean 2." Turns out they want to do 2 and 3 at the same time, much like "The Matrix" and "Back to the Future." Says producer Jerry Bruckheimer, "We hope we can do it as well as lord of the rings."
The long awaited movie version of The Simpsons has been locked in for a 2008 release. They've begun writing it.
