    David Mackenzie would be interesting, I'd love Edgar Wright but he'd probably want a lot more time and I'd have no complaints about Demange. Whether Demange and Mackenzie have an eye for action is an unknown.

    Demange definitely does. It's of the more gritty and visceral type, though.

    I've only seen the trailer, it doesn't convince me he would do the steady action Bond films need.

    Have you seen 'Hell or high water'?
    Mackenzie can handle action and tell a good Story! I wouldn't mind Demange but would prefer Mackenzie!

    I really liked Hell or High Water, so I wouldn't mind MacKenzie.

    Anyone here more worried about cinematography? I know I am. After SPECTRE's pi** colour that's the thing that worries me. A lot.

    Probably because there won't be a delay. Not a significant one at least.
    That being said, just rewatched Baby Driver and I now hope Wright has the job. Based on that car chase alone... Also, he could put on his journeyman director cap on just for Bond and then do his other projects with his own magic spells.

    Cripes, that looked terrible. As soon as the kid broke into his bopping and lip-synching, I was cringing.

    I have not been on a MCU community board, but I can't imagine it being worse than what's going on here, even though GOTG3 is also a hot mess. It hasn't garnered the full-scale panic as has occurred on this site. LOL

    You're not alone. The one thing that really excited me about Boyle is that his films are usually really vibrant and colorful. However, I have a good feeling that B25 will look pretty good.

    That's a character trait. And not the thing I was referring to when I said imagine that with a DBS Superleggera. Only the way the action is shot. Nothing else. Particularly not the bopping and lip-synching.

    Here's hoping. But I am worried. IMO, the best part of SF was Deakins work.

    Yeah, because thats a fair and equal comparison. Bond with twenty four installments dated back to 1962, and Guardians with 2 installments dating all the way back to 2014.

    JBR - "can you turn it around in three months?"
    Yes you can. I wrote my last novel in less. And that one was considered heavy literature. How hard is it to write an intelligent and well written script? (Just get Gatiss and Moffat on the phone instead of Purvis and Wade. They'd have fun with some quick dialogue and clever twists. They're probably huge Bond fans as well).

    BTW, don't you love JBR? Those guys are great.

    I don’t care who steps in as director (if they can even get one). I just want a Daniel Craig Bond film in theaters by November 2019.

    Haven't watched Baby Driver, but this clip was very enjoyable!

    Now imagine that with a DBS Superleggera in cote d'azur or something.

    I can definitely imagine that, and that would look great! That clip from BD is much better than the half-arsed attempt at a car chase in SP.

    The Piss Filter was really annoying. I just can't understand why they would want that.

    You work as a writer, @Univex? :-)
    Would really like to see Gatiss and Moffat write a Bond script at one point. If this is the time, I don't know (they are usually very busy, aren't they?). No doubt they could deliver something very interesting.

    Can see a Noyce or Forster type slotting in if they want to salvage a 2019 release date. (I am one of the very few who adore The Saint).

    They’d wanna give Forster a crash course in lifestyle porn, however. QoS was very good, but it still lacked the breathing space that made CR great.

    Also, one can only imagine the kind of camaraderie Forster and Craig built writing side by side against the clock on that set.

    In light of the current situation, Craig and Babs could well be gravitating to a known quantity.

    One of my jobs, yeah. Been working on my 6th novel for the last couple of months. Wish they'd ask me. I would do it for free. But then again, wouldn't we all? ;)

    apparently danny boyle was looking at set building when he decided to quit according to JBR they are looking for workmen like directors

    I wouldn't trust these idiots.

    Deadline Hollywood - a trusted Hollywood trade website - is saying that 4 very talented directors (who are far from workman-like) are under consideration.

    I agree I've listened to some of their podcasts and they both come across as just fans but not offering anything more than what I can deduce from coming on here.

    I can't believe so many of you put so much stock in their views, they are pretty clueless.

    @Univex you made an earlier comment, pages ago, about something happening to Col. Sun. So what happened to our member, Col. Sun? Please answer. Thanks.

    Although I couldn't possibly comment on the particulars. I don't remember them. I know I left because I defended that dubbing films was daft and was attacked for being an intellect elitist of some sort. Can't remember the details on that one either. I guess it doesn't matter. We're all fans, that's all.

    Interesting – hope writing it goes well! Feel free to keep us updated on the process :-)

    Having Bond 25 as a reference on the CV? Yes, please - even for free!
    EON really shouldn't have any issue finding a replacement director or writer, though. Whatever restraints EON should give the director/writer of choice, there must be plenty of good candidates who would jump at the chance to direct a Bond film.

    OK, thanks, @Univex.

    That's what I'm thinking. It's a golden opportunity. If the director fails its a shared failure because of the production and Boyle's exit. If he wins. I mean, if the director succeeds in turning all of this around, he'll be a bona fide hero.

    That's my thinking. The pair would hit the ground running.

  • The Piss Filter was really annoying. I just can't understand why they would want that.

    What you derogatorily refer to as "piss filter" is just part of Hoyte van Hoytema's usual aesthetic. You can see it in his other films like INTERSTELLAR which came a year earlier. He always employed a more otherworldly look to his films. Admittedly it's unusual for Bond films, as they typically in the past went with real world colors, so it's no surprise the more conservative Bond fans don't like seeing that kind of experimentation done (like those who hate the "the dead are alive" title after the gun barrel, instead of the usual iris opening up).

    If I have one reservation, I do wish the gun barrel didn't use that color pallet. Otherwise, the film looks perfectly fine to me.

    Derogatory would be calling him a hack - it's some people's favourite word around here.

    It worked well at times (Rome, the London stuff) and took away from the visuals at other times (pretty much the entire Austria sequence).

    The filter in Spectre was nothing. On that short lived Training Day tv series with the late Bill Paxton, there was a yellow filter set to 100.
  • Then I wish we had more "hacks" in cinema like Van Hoytema.

    Of his work, I like TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY the best.

    +1.
    That film is a stunning piece of work - not even because of the colours but because VH shot a lot of it on long lenses and it worked so damn well.

    All the weaker Bond films are still pleasant to look at. Thanks to the yellow filter, SP doesn't even get THAT right.
