Bond 25 cinematographer

The two most recent entries in the James Bond franchise have benefitted from the work of two of the best cinematographers in the business: Roger Deakins (The Shawshank Redemption, Fargo) shot Skyfall, and Hoyte Van Hoytema (Interstellar, Let the Right One In) shot Spectre. Now the franchise is zeroing in on a collaborator for director Cary Joji Fukunaga: the Bond 25 cinematographer is reportedly La La Land and American Hustle‘s Linus Sandgren.

Meanwhile, Lion and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story cinematographer Greig Fraser is lined up to shoot Denis Villeneuve’s new take on Dune. See some examples of their work below. Read More »
