Leaked: James Bond Spectre Massively Over Budget; Reveals Ending



The Sony leaks continue as a result of being the target of a series of hacks with the latest in regards to the new James Bond film, Spectre.

CNN is currently reviewing thousands of leaked documents where they came across an internal memo stating Spectre could be one of the most expensive movies in history, with more than a whopping $300 million budget.

In addition, the end of the movie is also described; albeit, no spoilers are present.

E-Mails by MGM president Jonathan Glickman suggested ways Sony could cut costs, including:

•Villa in Rome? It's a nighttime scene, so try doing it in London instead.
•There's fighting on a train! Again! But use fewer carriages -- three instead of four.
•Forget the dramatic finale in the rain. It'll lower the cost of visual/special effects.
•Earn an extra $6 million by showing "the more modern aspects" of Mexico to maximize "the Mexican incentive." (The makers of Spectre are getting paid to film there.)

It's reported a series of e-mails was then exchanged with a producer for Spectre arguing against cutting costs. Eventually, Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal was added to the mix who sent an e-mail reading: "It's insane and you know with no script this movie is gonna go overbudget."

"Spectre" has a November 6, 2015 release directed by Sam Mendes starring Daniel Craig as 007 James Bond, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ralph Fiennes as M, Andrew Scott as Denbigh, David Bautista as Mr Hinx, Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swan and Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser
