    007 News: James Bond/Daniel Craig, The Face of Indian Railways; Adele to Record Bond Theme?

    Daniel Craig, the James Bond du jour, might trade in his Aston Martin and other fancy wheels for a set of decrepit railway tracks. Daniel Craig is likely to sign on as the official Ambassador of Indian Railways, said Dinesh Trivedi, India’s railways minister. James Bond 23, the newest 007 film, directed by Sam Mendes, will film in India. The new Bond installment features an important sequence on the rails, which required many meetings with ministry officials to obtain permission. As WSJ reports, there needed to be a tradeoff, and Craig’s face on the train, or at least in a television ad, might seal the deal. The Indian railway is less than hi...

    Jolie & Pitt Take Turns, Which Will Happen First? Gray Man, Slave, Cleopatra, Maleficent, Salt 2

    Can Hollywood stop waiting for Brad Pitt? The actor has had two projects announced so far this week. Luckily he'll only be acting in one of them. Scheduling would be tricky either way, since in-demand Pitt and partner Angelina Jolie don't work simultaneously. Jolie has Salt 2, Maleficent and Cleopatra in the pipelines, while Pitt is currently filming Marc Forster's World War Z. Pitt is now in talks to star in The Gray Man, based on Adam Cozad's script (on 2010 Black List), which is an adaptation of Mark Greaney's novel. James Gray (the man behind Joaquin Phoenix starrers We Own the Night and Two Lovers) will direct for New Regency (which was ...
