I thought it was the other way round. She used a lot of drugs when she was younger, but got clean later, though she seems to have fallen off the wagon shortly before her death. I could be wrong.

Favorite Movies: There are many to tell, but I prefer something that has a great storyline with loads of escapism and fantastic performance with over-the-top elements which would be pleasing. Action is the main genre I follow, and the spy genre would second that.

Last I heard, they didn't even have a script or director, and they're going to start shooting in March? Seems unlikely, but if some random with 127 followers said it on Twitter, it must be true. After all, he has a mate who works in the film industry.

Dubrovnik rumors with 007 facing a near death experience in the Adriatic has also been cited numerous times where he's also supposed to meet "old acquaintances".

I've a feeling that due to the leaks, Babs is really leaving the crowd in the dark. Perhaps there's far more at hand in advance behind the scenes than we think of.

If anything is happening with a production starting in March it’s got be a skeleton crew doing preliminary work, basic of the basic, if it happening for real or just assumed because it has to happen because they have a release day in 2019.
To get real work started eon need a the studio to find a partner to fund the movie, the a script and director.

According to Babs, fundamental things were going to be settled "by early 2018". I'm guessing they're going to announce the director and the distributors after the awards shows are done with.

I thought years and years of drug took a heavy toll. She and Jim Belushi were birds of a feather.

No. It means they'll move into their Pinewood office space in March. Filming would be months after that.

I have at least three copies when it comes to previously released Bond titles, so... this won’t do much for me. :)
By the way, for those who read the comics... Dynamite will release a collected edition of the Bond one shots under the title James Bond Case Files Vol. 1.

Shane Black is developing Avengers reboot for TV:
https://doubleosection.blogspot.com/201 ... r-pen.html

I'll bet my intelligence on it this is going to fail the audience of the original series and disrespect the source material since Shane Black is known to vehemently pull that off.

More reboots? No originality any longer in Hollywood. TLJ dropped off the box office cliff to 7th place Friday as Jumanji reigns supreme at #1 again :!:

I wonder what they'll call it. Probably something like Steed & Mrs Peel, since The Avengers is now firmly linked to Marvel in the public mind.

I suspect exactly that, since the comic books based on the TV series are published under that title.

That's what made me think of it. There was a mini-series by Grant Morrison and Ian Gibson with that title back in, I think, the '90s.
