If in the highly unlikely event that this info is legitimate, I'm not sure if I'm thrilled.

The bits which are public public at the moment are a few (seriously, a few, if what I hear is true) notes by Sony/MGM execs on multiple drafts (the pages with numbered notes are for an early August one, then the other two are for an October/November one apparently) so yeah seems like CIA subplot with Charlotte and Leiter has been cut in the newer drafts/shooting script.

I agree that if it's true, a lot (hopefully) isn't relevant because it seems like an early draft. Certainly from what is there, it seems less mission-like and more personal and 'closer to home' than many would have originally liked.
I do like the idea of The Day of the Dead though and this would definitely fit into the Mexico City scenes. They could certainly have a LALD meets junkanoo meets Rio carnival vibe in the film.
The mention of an Irma character does hold possibilities though.
Madeleine as main Bond girl does hold appeal. She and Bond do seem to be getting in and out of trouble, much like Bond and Camille, but with less tension in the relationship. More natural I think.
Sorry to repeat this, everyone looking at imgur images, remember those are for two different drafts, a lot of stuff changed between the two it seems
This appears to be an intense 'caper' with some dramatic flair due to Mendes' involvement.
I like what I quickly read over, but I prefer to stay away from further plot details until the teaser comes out.
Looks very good though, if it's legit.
Anyway, if it is true, it all seems very interesting. The notes were all a bit jumbled so can someone clarify if I have this right
If this is real then it'll be interesting to see how much of it is still in the final draft. It's looking great so far though. Has a lot of potential. Seems to again be a very personal, dramatic story though. I don't really have a problem with this, I like the character drama approach to things, I've gotten used to it and I think it's been really well done in the Craig films and has helped breath new life into the series. But people hoping for a more straight forward film may be disappointed.
I don't have a problem with it, as long as we don't see Bond crying again. I've had it with that element.
Re: M, read 86 on the 4th image. That bit was cut too it seems as well. Remember notes.ate for two different drafts.
Here is the one for news:
Sorry guys, please use one of the links in the previous post to continue this conversation. Thank you for giving this issue some thought in the future. It's better to centralize ideas into a single thread than to cut an idea into fragments which then get their own thread each. Members will simply end up repeating posts or, out of fear of sounding too repetitious, avoid certain threads which will then simply lose their juice after half a page or so.
Thanks again for your participation. :-)
Do you have any other links?
What's of interest is the veracity of these leaks and how the SP story as we think we might know it, might impact the series going forward.
What's to become of Spectre?
Based on the supposed ending, which I think does fit, with the four film story arc as we think we know it,.....,does this spell the end for Craig.
Does the old dog just walk away now ...too jaded to continue
I think it's a nice fitting ending, it links together the Craig movies, wraps up the Quantum arc and wraps up Bond's personal story arc, giving him a happy ending.
PMd link. That's basically all that has been leaked plot wise apart from CNN story.
As for veracity - checking dates on the screencaps on that link - the numbered notes are circa May it turns out. The rest including that ending are more recent - Sept/Oct?
It really seems at this point that
but I can safely say this is extremly risky!
if so this might be as good a way as any, to wind down the Craig era. Tie it off with a bow as a standalone story arc, and come back with new Bond-on-mission approach, but still incorporating, much of what worked in the Craig era.
If so I extend permission to not put gunbarrel back at start, and to not feature JB Theme prominently in film. Save these longstandin stylings for a soft relaunch.
Although, the table had already been neatly set for a relaunched Bond-on-mission, scenario, with all personal drama done.
But realistically how likely was that to happen, with this actor and especially with this director.
They'll probably have enough "safe" standalone threats, set pieces and stuff to counter all the link backs and possible melodrama.
The Day of the dead PTS sound amazing too. like i said the action will be there the ending will be shocking though heck even though I know it if i sit in a theater in November and see this ending I will be shocked.
