There are some great duos in pop culture and Anya Taylor-Joy with Daniel Craig on the screen is always a great sight to see.
It was recently revealed that the two have been rumored to possibly work together on the upcoming film adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov’s ‘Laughter in the dark’. The film has been having many fans of not only the maker of the film, but fans of Daniel and Anya as well on the edge of their seats.
Not just that, but Scott Frank (the queen’s gambit) will reteam with Anya for the project as well. The synopsis for the story follows a married middle-aged art critic who begins to have an affair and develop a troublesome mutually parasitic relationship with a young woman.
We truly hope that this continues to move forward.
Ever since Daniel Craig stepped down from the iconic role of James Bond back in 2021, all eyes have been on Bond bosses. No Time To Die brought a definitive end to the star’s version of the hero, and – more importantly – opened the door to a brand new actor.
This week, the first new actor to play James Bond was announced for Japan only – a woman named Suzuho Makaze.
The new production – “Casino Royale – My Name Is Bond” – is based on Ian Fleming’s original literary work, and will employ an entirely female cast. (According to Mi6 HQ)
The cast are the Takarazuka Revue, an all-female theatre troupe that was established in 1913. As is tradition, women play every role.
Japan also has an all-male theatre troupe, Kabuki, which does the same but in reverse. These acting troupes are similar to The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, an all-male British acting troupe that still works today.
This also should be a treat to watch as well with the way they are taking the 007 franchise in Japan.
