Steven Soderbergh is one of those directors who can pretty much work with anyone he wants, and so when it came to cast up his “return to filmmaking” with “Logan Lucky,” he was spoiled rotten. Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, Daniel Craig, Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, David Denman, Macon Blair, Jack Quaid, and Brian Gleeson star in the movie that will follow brothers Jimmy and Clyde Logan, who try to reverse a family curse, and set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

It’s been fun to speculate about who the next James Bond could be, especially since the current Bond has said on the record that he’d rather slash his wrists than play Bond again. However, any predictions may be premature at this point. According to Callum McDougall, who’s executive produced all the Daniel Craig Bond films to […] The post Daniel Craig Still the “First Choice” to Play James Bond appeared first on /Film.

While it seems every other week brings some kind of speculation about the future of the James Bond franchise — usually spurred by U.K. bookmakers on slow business days, which is then picked up by U.K. press on slow news days — the truth is nobody knows anything.
