SPECTRE

The James Bond universe is rich and dense, with history that spans back decades and more colorful characters than you could shake a stick at. But don’t mistake that for a Marvel-style “shared universe.” “I think Bond lives in his own universe. I don’t think he wants to share it with anyone else,” laughed producer Barbara Broccoli.

Meanwhile, the filmmakers are excited to keep the series moving forward with Daniel Craig in Spectre — and maybe even beyond. “We want him for as long as he’ll have us,” said producer Michael G. Wilson. Broccoli chimed in, “He’s got an open-ended contract.” (But for what it’s worth, Wilson does agree that Elba would “make a great Bond.”) [Moviefone]

Jack Sparrow’s perpetual bad luck seems to have spread to his upcoming five-quel, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The Australia shoot has been delayed due to star Johnny Depp’s hand injury, which we reported on earlier this month.

The original plan was to shoot around him until he recovered, but the injury is proving more complicated than initially expected and about half the crew has been told to stand down. For the time being, the action sequel is still slated to open July 7, 2017. [Empire]

Author Stieg Larsson originally envisioned The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo as the start of a ten-book saga, but he died after completing just three. Nevertheless, the series will continue September 1 when The Girl in the Spider’s Web, written by David Lagercrantz, hits shelves.

Not everyone is happy about this, including Larsson’s longtime partner Eva Gabrielsson. But for the curious, here are the U.S. cover, U.K. cover, and book trailer.
