The Sun recently reported that Bond 23 was underway and that the new James Bond movie was rumored to star Rachel Weisz and be entitled Red Sky At Night.
The scoop, it turns out, comes from an anonymous “friend-of-a-friend” tip James Bond fan forum. British James Bond website MI6 were quick to rebuff the story and humiliate its authors.
The piece, editors point out, is largely cobbled together from old rumors writing: “You can expect to see this garbage recycled on movie blogs and reported as un-sourced ‘fact’ in tabloid newspapers over the coming days…”
Stay tuned for scandal.
