Sam Mendes directs Daniel Craig in Skyfall

It was recently reported that Skyfall director Sam Mendes was likely to return to direct Bond 24. This comes after repeated exclamations that he would not return to direct due to his obligation to produce the theatrical version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and an adaptation of King Lear.

However, the director reportedly entered into talks with EON Productions and Sony Pictures to come back direct another Bond film. Now, there are a few more details coming out of those talks which are pinning the filmmaker to possibly directing not one but two James Bond films.

According to ShowBiz411, Mendes is coming back for Bond 24 and will end up directing Bond 25 as well.

Les Miserables PosterLes Misérables
Directed by Tom Hooper
Written by William Nicholson
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter
Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 160 minutes
Release Date: December 25th, 2012

Tom Hooper‘s new film, Les Misérables, is based on the musical production by Alain Boublil, Claude-Michel Schönberg, and Herbert Kretzmer, which is of course based upon the 1862 French novel by Victor Hugo.

This musical film adaptation, scripted by William Nicholson (Gladiator), features Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, a Frenchman imprisoned for stealing bread, who breaks parole and must escape the tireless police Inspector Javert (Russell Crowe).

The pursuit consumes both men’s lives, and after two decades on the run, Valjean finds himself in the midst of the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris where he must confront Javert for the last time. The film’s ensemble is comprised of Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, and the humorous duo of Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen, who play shifty innkeepers.

Les Miserables Header

Anne Hathaway has shown that she has the skills to carry a tune at the Academy Awards, but that was just for a mere skit. Now she is taking that skill to Tom Hooper’s adaptation of the critically acclaimed musical Les Misérables. Based on the Victor Hugo novel of the same name, Universal has released the first trailer for the film, but instead of focusing on the various characters of the musical, the trailer’s focus of attention is on Hathaway as Fantine singing “I Dreamed a Dream.” You can check out the trailer below.

Hugh Jackman plays Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe takes the role of Inspector Javert. The film also stars Amanda Seyfried, Samantha Barks, Eddie Redmayne, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sacha Baron Cohen.
