Cannes Film Festival bosses are to mark 50 years of the James Bond franchise by screening five classic 007 movies at the event.

To celebrate the franchise's 50th birthday this year, officials at this month's French film festival will screen 007's debut cinema outing along with its follow-up From Russia with Love, George Lazenby's sole turn as the spy in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Sean Connery's swansong in 1971's Diamonds Are Forever, and current Bond star D...

Quatum of Solace
Ian Fleming based his James Bond character on composer Andrew Lloyd Webber's former father-in-law.

The theatre impresario's TV personality daughter Imogen has revealed the writer drew inspiration for his superspy from her grandfather.

She says, "He's based on my mother's father. He served under Ian Fleming in the war in naval intelligence, and my grandfather is one of the men James Bond is based upon. It's a very cool claim to fame."

Sean Connery
Bond bosses have been left disappointed after Sean Connery reportedly declined an invitation to take part in the 50th anniversary celebrations of the superspy series next year.

The series is set to return to the big screen with Daniel Craig slipping on his tuxedo for his third outing as the spy next year to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the franchise.

Bosses at MGM - the studio behind the movies - are planning to mark the milestone ...

Is This It For James Bond? Find Out In This Week's EW

Daniel Craig As James Bond
With MGM up for auction - and no buyer in sight - the world's greatest film franchise lies in peril. This week's cover story investigates what's next for James Bond, and whether Daniel Craig has sipped his last shaken martini.

Up until last spring, it looked as if James Bond would indeed return, but after decades of invincibility, it seems as if 007 has finally been defeated, at least for the foreseeable future. What's holding up production on the next movie is the sale of MGM, which went up for auction last November and still hasn't found a buyer. Then, in July, there was more reason t...

Quantum of Solace
This Friday, Sir Ian Fleming's James Bond is back in theaters. Daniel Craig has brought a brute anger to the role that has not quite been seen before. In the very least, as we learned in the 2006 version of Casino Royale, he certainly does not care any longer how his martini is served. Craig is under contract for one more Bond film after Quantum of Solace, but what if he does not return after that twenty-third film? What will his post Bond career look like? Let's take a look at all the actors who have played 007 -- rouge film, or not -- and what their post Bond careers looked like.
