Garbage alert: The Sun scrapes together Bond 23 internet rumours
Tabloid red-top rag The Sun
has scraped an 'exclusive' article today that merely combines a random collection of old Bond 23 rumours from last year.
As the 23rd James Bond film was officially announced last week, it took the hacks a few days to put together the piece and manufacture some fake insider comments.
Highlights of the piece include:
"Casting Rachel Weisz was going to be a surprise twist as everyone would assume she'd be a Bond girl when really she would play a villain. But the fly in the ointment is that [she and Daniel Craig] are now dating."
This rumour started back in April 2010.
"The Sun has learned that pre-production for the 23rd 007 installment is well under way after producers overcame financial troubles that had left its future in doubt last year. "
'Learned' by reading the press release?
"The film - due out next year - is tipped to be called Red Sky At Night. But Ian Fleming's three remaining titles The Property of a Lady, Risico and The Hildebrand Rarity are also being mooted. And planned stunts could include a death-defying winter sports chase. "
The Sun read an anonymous posting on a fan forum last week.
You can expect to see this garbage recycled on movie blogs and reported as un-sourced 'fact' in tabloid newspapers over the coming days...
