“No Time to Die” director Cary Fukunaga is being accused of inappropriate behavior with young women on film sets. Anonymous sources from the production of the upcoming AppleTV+ miniseries “Masters of the Air” told Rolling Stone that the director has engaged in “absolute, clear-cut abuse of power” when interacting with young female actresses and crew members. His goal, they alleged, is to engage in romantic relationships.

Click here to read the full article. After wrapping up a scene on the set of Apple TV’s World War II miniseries Masters of the Air, most of the cast and crew decamped. Director Cary Fukunaga, though, hung back and began to take photos of two actresses. According to two production sources, the celebrated director’s focus was not on the scene’s main players, but rather on two of the background actresses — one of whom had recently turned 18 — dressed as prostitutes from the 1940s. Taking pictures of the young women, he egged them on while they posed suggestively, bent against...

New Misconduct Allegations Made Against Cary Fukunaga While On The Set Of ‘Masters Of Air’

Years after the beginning of the #MeToo movement, more and more stories of predatory behavior in Hollywood have been coming into the spotlight. Various Actors, filmmakers, and studio heads have all been subject to accusations from people showcasing how the entertainment industry has been littered with harassment and misconduct that would have previously gone unreported. And now, we have another name to add to the list — Cary Fukunaga, the filmmaker behind the recent James Bond blockbuster, “No Time to Die.”

Cary Fukunaga accused of sexual misconduct by three women in their 20s, including twin sisters who appeared on Netflix's Maniac

The 44-year-old Emmy-winning True Detective and No Time to Die director's comment on his Instagram Stories last week in support of women in wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's plan to overturn Roe v. Wade prompted Rachelle Vinberg, a 23-year-old former Betty star and skater, to write: “I spent many years scared of him. Mans is a groomer and has been doin this sh*t for years. Beware women.” That promoted twin sisters Hannah and Cailin Loesch, who appeared on the Fukunaga-produced and directed 2018 Netflix limited series Maniac, to allege similar behavior. "For three years after, Fukunaga allegedly pursued both of them—inviting them to spend time with him in London while he worked on No Time To Die, and later to his farmhouse during the quarantine," reports Jezebel's Audra Heinrichs. "They said Fukunaga also invited himself to their family home in Pennsylvania. At one point during his stay, they said, the three sat in a hot tub, where Fukunaga asked the pair if they were virgins and whether they’d ever participate in a threesome, suggesting that incest is fine 'if all parties are okay with it.'" Heinrichs adds: "Jezebel has reached out to Fukunaga’s representatives, as well as Rachelle Vinberg and Cailin and Hannah Loesch for comment. None had responded by publication time." The allegations come seven months after actress Raeden Greer accused Fukunaga of firing her for refusing to go topless on True Detective.

Daniel Craig & Cary Fukunaga In Conversation: ‘No Time To Die,’ Awards & What’s Next [Interview]

Cliche aside, time flies. It’s hard to believe how much Daniel Craig’s James Bond tenure has popped up over my career as a journalist. I was barely in the game when I interviewed Martin Campbell for “Casino Royale.” I was beyond lucky enough to visit both “Quantum of Solace” sets in Bregenz, Austria, and at Chile’s Paranal Observatory in the Atacama Desert. Because, hey, it’s one thing to talk to Craig in a hotel suite for an interview, but it’s another to chit-chat after he’s done an action scene as 007. And then, a few years later, we had the opportunity to watch Craig and Javier Bardem shoot this memorable scene in person at Pinewood Studios. All these years later, the world has changed in more ways than we can imagine, but Bond somehow lives on. Well, the character will eventually live on in someone else’s shoes after the events in “No Time To Die,” Craig’s final installment in the long-running franchise.

Bond Producers Want To Work With No Time To Die Director Cary Fukunaga Again

Cary Fukunaga might be fresh off of directing the latest high-flying entry in the world of James Bond, but if Barbara Broccoli has anything to say about it, this won't be the last time he teams up with 007. The delightfully named owner of the James Bond film franchise can't stop saying nice things about the "No Time to Die" director, and it seems the feeling is mutual. Fukunaga's Bond film might feel like the closing of a door, but maybe it's also the opening of a window? At the very least, reviews are looking good, and clearly, the boss is happy.

Bond Boss Wants Cary Fukunaga Back, Says Next 007 Is British Male of ‘Any’ Ethnicity or Race

Barbara Broccoli shares control of the James Bond movie franchise with her half-brother Michael G. Wilson, which means she’s got a lot of questions to answer about the future of the franchise. Daniel Craig has delivered his 007 swan song with “No Time to Die.” Who will be the next Bond? Those conversations won’t begin until next year, so Broccoli is tuning out all the social media rumors. All Broccoli knows is that Bond will continue to be played by a British male. “I think it will be a man because I don’t think a woman should play James Bond,” Broccoli...

Edgar Wright and Cary Fukunaga Go Deep on the Art of Making Movies

Edgar Wright is back. The director, who kept busy during the pandemic by releasing the music documentary Sparks, had to wait a little longer for his latest genre exercise to hit theaters. Last Night in Soho, which was delayed by a year and marks his official follow-up to the suprise hit Baby Driver, is a psychological horror starring Thomasin McKenzie as an aspiring fashion designer who is haunted with visions of a mysterious woman in 1960s London, played by Anya Taylor-Joy. The film, which doubles as love letter to the city Wright calls home and an ode to the European thrillers of his youth, is once again packed with references and the kinetic style Wright has become known for. To mark its release, Wright hopped on a call with Cary Fukunaga, another filmmaker who knows a thing or two about delayed movies, to discuss the psychological toll of moviemaking, reshoots, challenging audience expectations, and ghosts, both real and imagined. —BEN BARNA.
