    Suspiria and A Bigger Splash (with Fiennes) showed she can act. And she's definitely a looker. But, as you say, I doubt she'll be cast.

    Never understood what's so interesting with Emma Stone, to be honest. OK actress that comes across as annoying in interviews, IMO.
    I quite agree. I like her as an actress, but she's a bit overexposed imho, and I'd much rather not see her in a Bond film.

    Dakota Johnson on the other hand is definite James Bond material imho, Fifty Shades notwithstanding. I actually recommended her on the Who should be a Bond girl thread a few weeks back. Stunning, and with excellent acting pedigree to boot.

    I seriously doubt either will be cast however.

    Overexposed is a good way to put it.

    Never seen Dakota Johnson in anything, actually. Coming from an acting family, she can't be all bad though.

    Jamaica? Then we need some calypso for the soundtrack.

    Monty? Are you doing anything in 2020?

    He will hit 90 in April. I'm sure, he has another Bond theme in him. ;) ;) ;)

    Did anyone notice how chummy Daniel and Emma were during the Golden Globes?

    Maybe he got drunk again and asked her if she wanted to be in Bond 25.

    Not to mention that she’s close to Fukunaga.

    Seydoux and one of Johnson or Stone would make one of the best Bond girl line ups ever.

    If I was to choose any actress (and I've said this before) from Fukunaga's past work it would be Sonoya Mizuno. She is Japanese-born British actress who starred in Maniac, alongside Emma Stone. Slso starred in Ex Machina with Alicia Vikander and Oscar Isaac.

    All of this sounds good to me... the cast and locations are shaping up nicely

    Still holding out some hope for a female villain as well. It’s been a while since we had one.

    I think we're more likely to get a female henchwoman, but I definitely agree :)

    I'd be satisfied with that, so long as it's done well!

    Dakota could be the mi6 agent but unsure what role (if this is legit) stone will play

    Well, Johnson fits the femme-fatale archetype. Essentially the credibility of the Italian report hinges on whether that location is confirmed. The casting suggestions seem random enough to be true.

    Though, I just looked online and Johnson was cast earlier this week in a new film due to film next month:

    There's a chance it's a small film and can be done around Bond 25 - but still it immediately throws a large grain of salt into this situation.

    While both the actresses are great in the work they've done, the choices (if true) seem stale and uninspiring. I remember when I saw they'd cast Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe (although I wasn't aware of who Marlohe was at the time), it felt right and felt like the casting of old. It wasn't because of their star power or their fans, they were just right for the part and was completely left field from the usual American-star we're used to getting in other films.

    Definitely wouldn't want Stone or Johnson in the film, but those rumours seem unsubstantiated.

    I'm glad more exotic locations are popping up.

    If they both appeared in the film then Bond 25 would have the best cast of any Bond film by a MILE.

    Can't say I agree. I don't know how I'd feel with two American Bond girls in one film.

    I'd much prefer exotic unknowns like Marlohe (as a side note, they'll never get this lucky casting a Bond girl for a long time).

    For me, a bit of the fun with the Bond films is when they cast unfamiliar names. They usually make a good impression.

    Is it just me or she looked slightly similar to Elektra king from TWINE in that picture.

    YES! :D

    Not to mention drop dead gorgeous.

    No it's not just you, Dakota definitely has a bit of a Sophie Marceau look going on. Similarly sultry.

    Stone likely won't make it, Johnson on the other hand has a shot as a female villain but ion still skeptical.

    Maybe we’re going to get a variation of Charlotte King from one of the original Spectre drafts. She was an American agent who turned out to be a Spectre agent.

    Personally delighted if Italy features again. European locales always add a level of class, Italy being the best of the lot imo.

    Yes, I quite agree. Italy is the best place in the whole wide world, IMO.

    Daniel and Rachel ARE in London. Production starts this Monday 4th of February with readings and rehearsals. Sets are ready at Pinewood. Maybe second unit could film there this very Wednesday.

    Source please?
  • edited February 2 Posts: 2,819
    Does the source who knows that sets are ready know which sets are they?

    Well, it's archivo007, from Spain, mostly very reliable, right?
