This basically means that Adelle’s “Skyfall” will be the official sound track of the upcoming movie and new adventure of James Bond, an addition to his 007 films.
I have not personally listened to this song yet, but I think this must be good. I am not a fan of Adelle even if she’ll use pearl flute, but since the production of the 007 films has chosen her and her song, I might as well start liking her songs then.
The American actor, former fashion model, comedian and producer and also known for the portrayal of Michael Kelso in the Fox sitcom That ’70s Show ASHTON KUTCHER will play as STEVE JOBS in an Indie film as a wealthy techie men.
The schedule of filming for this Indie film will start by May 2012.
Steve Jobs died after suffering from Pancreatic cancer on October 2011. I am wondering who will play as hospital personnel — a nurse or an attendant who will be carrying a medication cart in one segment of the film. Or should I say, will the part when Steve Jobs was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer be showed in the film? That would be one of the films’ segments that everybody should look forward to.
