  Next James Bond odds: Daniel Craig's Casino Royale auditions runner-up new 007 favourite NEXT JAMES BOND odds have seen Tom Hardy and Regé-Jean Page overtaken by a Hollywood star who was Daniel Craig's runner-up at the Casino Royale 007 auditions.Superman star Henry Cavill, who was just in his early 20s when he auditioned for Casino Royale, has overtaken the likes of Tom Hardy and Regé-Jean Page with Coral's odds.

Mission: Impossible director Christopher McQuarrie has set the record straight on the media’s interest in Tom Cruise.

The filmmaker and Top Gun: Maverick producer, who has worked with Cruise on nine films, spoke candidly about the actor, who is one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars.

McQuarrie’s comments come after it was asked whether the rumour mill surrounding the next two Mission: Impossible films, which have been billed as the final instalments in the franchise, won’t actually be the end for Cruise’s character, Ethan Hunt.

“Let me tell you, I’ve been working with Tom Cruise for 15 years and I cannot tell you the number of times I’ve been standing next to the man, witnessed an event and then read about it in the trades the next day and none of what they describe is actually true,” he told Light the Fuse podcast.

Marvel Avengers Campus opens plus more amazing new Disney attractions for 2022

  Marvel Avengers Campus opens plus more amazing new Disney attractions for 2022 With the recent opening of Disneyland Paris' Marvel Avengers Campus offering two brand-new attractions and immersive experiences, there will certainly be plenty more Disney magic this year from Paris to Florida. Alongside big anniversary celebrations, a cruise ship and some shiny new attractions all on the cards, we reveal the top Disney attractions opening around the world over the next year.

To emphasise his point, McQuarrie decided to share the one story about the actor that was “100 per cent” accurate.

“We were in Birmingham shooting a scene between Tom and Haley [Atwell],” he explained, adding; “The next day I read an article in the paper that said Tom and four other guests went out to dinner at an Indian restaurant.

“I read that Tom insisted on sitting at a table not in a private room but in the main restaurant with the other diners and that Tom ordered three orders of chicken masala because he liked it so much.”

McQuarrie continued: “I called Tom the next day and said, ‘There’s something weird about this article. It’s 100 per cent factually correct!’ That’s the first time I’ve read an article in which everything happened exactly as written.”

James Bond hopeful 'wrongly announced' as star of new series

  James Bond hopeful 'wrongly announced' as star of new series JAMES BOND fans almost lost one of their 007 candidates to another franchise this weekend as they were wrongly announced as the star of an upcoming TV show. Now a correction has been released.One of the best and brightest candidates up to play 007 next is none other than the Bridgerton heartthrob Regé-Jean Page.

It seems the reason for the news’ accuracy was that the restaurant itself, Asha’s, revealed the detail on its official Twitter page, writing in August 2021: “It was an absolute pleasure to welcome Tom Cruise to Asha’s Birmingham yesterday evening. Tom ordered our famous Chicken Tikka Masala and enjoyed it so much that as soon as he had finished, he ordered it all over again - The greatest compliment.”

McQuarrie who oversaw Cruise’s Jack Reacher films, as well as Mission: Impossible instalments Rogue Nation and Fallout, criticised articles about Cruise featuring anonymous sources.

“When you read ‘anonymous sources’ or ‘sources close to the production say,’ that’s somebody putting it out there for a specific reason,” he said. “That’s someone wanting others to think that for a specific reason, and you can never know for sure what those reasons are. You learn to ignore it and laugh at it.”
