NEXT April??????? :gaah: . And oh no, that gives him time to practice a Bostonian accent. Let's hope he doesn't. There are worse, but at least for me, it's one of the least attractive.

I would think its this April, don't forget its goggle trnslated. He'll be tied up with Bond next April.

I don't know what a Boston accent sounds like. :wink:

I hope SG is right. IE, the shooting starts THIS April and the movie is released EARLY 2015. Of course, I would have liked a new Daniel Movie THIS year... but beggars can't be choosers. :roll: He can slot it in neatly before Bond and, yes, next April I would still expect him to be shooting with Sam Mendes and whoever else...

Berlin: Will Sizzle Reels And Pre-Buys Heat Up Cold Market?

The European Film Market has been a bit sparse, with things perking up with Open Road’s acquisition of Rock The Kasbah. I’ve heard that pre-buy deal amounted to a $2 million minimum guarantee, a 10% gross deal for Bill Murray and a 1200-screen release commitment. If there is going to be action in Berlin, it might well be through the sizzle reels or other pre-buys.

The script stage projects being introduced in Berlin that seem most promising are the Daniel Craig-starrer The Whole Truth,....

A lot of these are being teased at Berlin, and will lead to sales at Cannes.
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

Reading that DC is going to be in an indie, well that really made me happy. This sort of happy: :happyrunning:

I am so in love with his pre-Holywood work: The Mother, Love is the Devil, Some Voices, Love and Rage, Layer Cake, Enduring Love, Our Friends in the North. I really think these European movies allow him to express much better as an actor, there are more nuances to the characters, to the story.

I absolutely love his "big" movies so to speak (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Munich, Road to Perdition, Flashback of a Fool, Infamous - especially this one), not to mention the Bonds.

But I prefer the pre-Holywood era. And now again an indie - OMG, OMG I cannot wait! even if this means perhaps less box office success...

Well, I've never classified Daniel's movies according to when and how they were made: whether they were pre-Hollywood, indie, Bonds, mid-Hollywood, etc. It never really mattered to me. What mattered was the plot, Daniel's role and in general how much I enjoyed the movie.
To be precise The Mother, Layer Cake, Enduring Love were NOT pre-Hollywood films, because they were made AFTER Lara Croft. ;)
And the same refers to WHERE they were made. European v. Hollywood - it doesn't really matter to me either. Infamous as an American movie, but Daniel's performance was Oscar-worthy and his character was very strong in terms of intensity and nuances. Munich and Road to Perdition were Hollywood productions and they were masterpieces.
I wouldn't say that indie movies provide more scope for "artistry", sometimes they do, but the best artists and specialists work in Hollywood and it's Holywood which has produced most of the world's cinematic mastepieces.


Having said all that, I'm really happy that Daniel is going to make a new movie, I'm all excited about it and hope it's good. :)
Looking forward to some more news :)

You are right, Alina. We'll put. It's all about the script. The thing for me I suppose, is that I have a sinking feeling that now he's an A-lister, he won't take as many artistic risks I think it's more of where he is in his career. Would he repeat the role of Ray in Some Voices? Darren? All others, exactly as they were portrayed? I think not. With actors, there's the pre-star and after-Sarah roles. Whether Indie or Hollywood, I don't think we'll see the brave pre-star roles anymore. I really hope I'm wrong. And yes, I definitely want to see him nude, but that will never happen now. However, it's more than that.

Probably the pre-star and after-star classification is a more accurate one :) And I LOVED his performance in Infamous, it was definitely Oscar worthy. But those pre-star parts are my favourites.

Inamous is clearly anong his best for me, too. And his voice in that film is beyond :thud:

As I said, I don't like any classifications. To me he was brilliant in Infamous, The Mother, Sylvia, Hotel Splendide or Love is the Devil as well as in Bonds, Defiance or Dragon Tattoo. Pre-star or after-star - doesn't matter. His performance is always to the full and beyond reproach.
Well, maybe with the exception of Zorro or Heartbeat - but they were definitely the pre-star period :lol:

I think he would LOVE to take some artistic risk and do something totally different, providing he was given a good script. He said he follows his heart when choosing new projects, so we can only hope there will be some good scripts with a "brave" role for him to accept.
As far as seeing him nude is concerned, well, there's always Bond, so we can hope for some shirtless delight moments :)
