Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

No, that's not Daniel Craig's replacement. It's the BAFTA-winning (and Oscar-nominated) screenwriter Peter Morgan! That's right, the man responsible for The Last King of Scotland, The Queen, and Frost/Nixon is on board to help pen the 23rd Bond film - stepping into the shoes of Paul Haggis, toucher-upper for both Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.

Morgan joins Bond nuts Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (007 scribes since The World Is Not Enough, and also the people behind the screenplay for spy-spoof Johhny English), so he's in good company.

But as amazingly turned on I am by the fact that Peter Morgan - one of the greatest writers out there at the moment (The Other Boleyn Girl aside) - is involved, I can't help but think one thing: does this mean we get Michael Sheen as the next Bond villain? Gay, camp or with a Middlesbrough accent, I don't care. Just please let him be our 21st Century Blofeld. He'd kick Donald Pleasance's arse.
