Jonathan Pryce stars as a media mogul out to engineer world events and start World War III. His character was modelled in part on British press magnate Robert Maxwell, who died in 1991 after falling from his yacht, an event that prompted much speculation at the time. At the close of the fim M uses 'falling overboard on his yacht' as a cover story for Carver's demise when asking Moneypenny to draft a press release. However, comparisons have also naturally been drawn between Carver and Rupert Murdoch.
