Lee Morrison | James Bond bosses dowsed an Italian street in $60k worth of Coca-Cola for a stunt
James Bond bosses spent almost £60,000 spraying Coca-Cola onto an Italian street.
The upcoming film in the franchise, ‘No Time To Die’, opens with a chase sequence in Matera, with a stand-out moment being when the suave spy carries out a 70ft leap onto the Piazza del Duomo on a motorbike.
And stunt coordinator Lee Morrison had a special trick up his sleeve to help rider Paul Edmondson – who was standing in for Daniel Craig – to hit an 8m ramp at 50-60mph in order to to successfully scale the 22 metre wall on his 450cc motocross bike.
Speaking to Total Film magazine, he explained: “It’s a bit of a dark art. You’ve got to hit the back brakes and bring the front end down because the front wheel spins and acts as a gyro. You’re doing it subconsciously. It’s 40 years of riding.”
To gain traction on the smooth stone, Lee found dousing it with the fizzy drink very helpful.
He added: “I’ve been spraying Coca-Cola on slippery surfaces for a very long time. I spent nearly £60,000 spraying Coca-Cola around Matera – Barbara [Broccoli, producer] looked at me as if I’m crazy. And it makes things look very clean after it washes off.”
And the wardrobe bill was also likely to have caused huge costs on the theme because every time Bond is seen wearing a designer suit from Tom Ford, the fashion house have had to produce more than 30 replicas to fulfil the needs of the production.
Costume designer Suttirat Anne Larlarb explained: “A lot of people are aware of the multiples thing. But some people aren’t aware that one suit on Bond has 33 versions, spread across Daniel’s stunt double, driving double, a VFX version of it, and then multiple stages of action distress.
“Tom Ford has done it so many times before they don’t even had an eyelid when you ask for tens of these one-off tuxedos that aren’t available anywhere else in the world.”
Noel Gallagher | Noel Gallagher: I want John Squire on my next album
The former Oasis rocker is working on a new album with his High Flying Birds band, and has said he would love for John to make a guest appearance on the record, although he noted the musician can be “a bit aloof”.
Speaking about John, Noel said: “He’s a great artist, so he’ll be selling art if he’s got any sense. He’s a great guitarist, I’m always threatening to get him to play on one of my records, but I never get round to asking him. I will do. He’s a bit aloof. He used to work for an animation studio before he was in The Stone Roses. There was a kids TV programme, like a puppet thing, kind of like Trumpton, he worked in the studio that made that. He was an animator and model maker. He did all The Stone Roses art work.”
Noel, 53, is hard at work on his new material, and says he’s written a song that would be perfect as the soundtrack to a Quentin Tarantino film.
He added: “I’ve got a song that I recently wrote that sounds f****** great, it sounds like a spaghetti western, and it would be great in a Quentin Tarantino film, it’s brilliant, but the verses are really low and the chorus is really high.”
And the ‘Black Star Dancing’ hitmaker teased his new album will be “more raw” that his previous solo studio ventures.
Speaking on Matt Morgan’s podcast, he said: “I’m doing this album on my own. I just tend to record the best songs, but as I’m not in a period of writing in the studio – I did all that with David [Holmes] and on ‘Black Star Dancing’ and ‘Blue Moon Rising’, just making it up – I’ve got a lot of songs written that we written before David got involved, he didn’t want any full songs.
“I’ve got a feeling that it will be very heavily guitar based. They’ll be pop songs but they’ll be a bit edgy. Like, ‘Chasing Yesterday’ is a guitar album, but they’re cleanish guitar sounds, they’re quite considered, this will be more raw I think. Now I’ve got my studio they’ll be more time to dig into it.”
Adele | Adele’s album isn’t finished
Adele’s new album isn’t finished yet.
The ‘Hello’ hitmaker has insisted she’s working on new material – which will be her fourth studio album, and her first since 2015 – but has said her album is “not finished”.
Adele, 32, gave the update whilst hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend, after being asked why she wasn’t performing on the show as the weekly musical guest as well as working as the host.
She said in her opening monologue: “I know there’s been a lot of chatter about why I’m just the host, like, ‘Why isn’t she the musical guest’ and stuff like that. And there’s a couple of reasons – my album’s not finished, and I’m also too scared to do both. I’d rather just put on some wigs – this is all mine, by the way – have a glass of wine, or six, and just see what happens.”
The news comes after she recently told fans she had “no idea” when she would be releasing new music.
When one fan commented on social media, “Adele where’s the album?”
The ‘Rolling in the Deep’ hitmaker then replied: “I honestly have no idea.”
Meanwhile, it was previously reported that the award-winning singer had “been pouring her heart and soul” into the new record and has been working with Raphael Saadiq and John Legend.
A source said: “Adele is pouring her heart and soul into this record, including how she feels post-divorce. She’s been a fan of Raphael since she was a teenager and loves his back catalogue. She wants her next album to be full of soul, with a more eclectic sound … She’s said in the past that creating new music is almost like therapy. You can tell that she is ready to share with her fans. She is so busy, but her life is better-rounded than it was before. She is very fulfilled being an artist. New music is still a big deal for her, and she feels alive and happy.”
