Daniel is celebrating his birthday today, and we would like to greet him a very happy birthday! We wish you all the best in life and in your career.
Multiple bidders — including Showtime, Netflix and others — are in talks for a big commitment to a limited series starring Daniel Craig in an adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s novel “Purity,” to be produced by Scott Rudin and written by Todd Field and Franzen. Field is also set to direct.
Rudin is said to have held a round of meetings with Showtime, Netflix, FX and at least three other outlets earlier this week in search of a straight-to-series order.
Given the auspices, the project generated significant heat and multiple bidders. Industry sources said producers were seeking a 20-episode order. Sources cautioned that the talks were early and the project could land at any outlet.
“Purity,” published in September, tells the story of an aimless young woman named Purity but known as Pip. She was raised in unusual circumstances in Northern California and winds up bouncing around after college from Oakland to Bolivia to Denver in a series of jobs and relationships with equally offbeat characters.
Spectre will be released digitally on January 22, and on DVD and Blu-ray on February 9. The DVD and Blu-ray special features include an in-depth look at the jaw-dropping opening scene in Mexico City alongside a host of video blogs about the supercars, music, action and more.
Blu-ray special features for the film’s release include:
Congratulations to Daniel, Sam Smith, and the rest of the cast and the crew of Spectre for getting two nominations for the Critics’ Choice Awards 2016!

With Spectre still raking in the cash at the global box office, producer Barbara Broccoli has revealed that development on Bond 25 is set to get underway this coming Spring.
“We have put three years of work into Spectre,” Broccoli tells 20Minuten.ch. It was a thrill, but now we want to enjoy the success and the reactions of the audiences. In spring we start again.”
Bond 25 will likely need to find a new director, with Skyfall and Spectre helmer Sam Mendes having seeminly ruled out a return, and while there’s been a tonne of speculation as to Daniel Craig’s continued involvement, Broccoli is keen to have him back for a fifth outing:
“I hope we can continue with Daniel,” she says. “I love him, obviously not just me but also the audience. I will try my best to keep him on.”
