“There are growing rumours Sam Mendes is cutting out the action scenes and making it Oscar-friendly.”
As far as bogus rumors go, this one takes the cake for sheer off-the-wall stupidity. There's no way EON would let Mendes cut the action scenes, and there's probably no way anyone who wants to make "the ultimate Bond film" (as Mendes seems to) would think the best way to do it is cutting out the Bond stuff. So I place no faith in the rumor at all; I post it here for the record.
That said, a tense non-actiony Bond movie would be awesome. Or even just one with the action toned back to Doctor No levels.
