    Babs said no female 007, why is this being brought up so much? Phoebe will add some good writing, that's it! Maybe an extra female touch.

    But looking at the last few bonds, the female leads have been strong, and not inconpetent.

    No need for a "me too" bond if it's already up to our age.

    If Barbara were reading this thread she'd be laughing so hard about the level of pettiness and presumptions that go around. She could use the entertainment after all the negativity of EON not doing what the so-called fans want to next movie to be. ;)

    Bond 25 will destroy James Bond etc. etc.

    Yeah it's awful, but the lack of "news" is a bit annoying.

    Let's steer the conversation towards possible casting suggestions...

    What direction do we think Eon will go with the female MI6 agent? There is certainly an argument that the agent should be younger (especially, if she doesn't have a romantic relationship with Bond). Could they hire an actress in her 20's?

    Let's assume that Lupita Nyong'o was up for the other role in the film - as she's a Kenyan-American actress - and this role is likely looking to cast a Brit. (Though, the same was the case with Vesper Lynd and they cast a French actress.............)

    There are numerous interesting young actresses from the UK who could nab such a role if they went younger. For example:

    Naomi Scott
    Sophie Cookson
    Herminone Corfield
    Ella Balinska
    Florence Pugh
    Anya Taylor-Joy


    I have a personal preference to Naomi Scott - she's a star on the rise with some notable projects in 2019.

    If they went a little older, they could gun for a bigger name. I suppose someone who we haven't mentioned in a while is Emma Stone. Who after The Favourite proved she could do a great English accent, plus she has a connection to Fukunaga. Now with Waller-Bridge's involvement and the more modern approach suggested, someone like Stone may be interested.

    There's also, the thought that they may want an actress who is better suited to Craig's age. Though, she is still younger than Craig, someone who seems tailor-made for such a role (and would likely win over even the most unhappy of fan) would be Emily Blunt. Though she may be as painfully obvious a choice as Christoph Waltz was for Blofeld.

    Personally, I think Rachel Weisz(who has had a social media renaissance this Oscar season) is the perfect candidate. Though she may not want to work on such a high-profile film with her husband. Though she needs to be a villain at some point in a Bond film - perhaps when the memory of Craig is further enough way.

    Emily Blunt would be bad ass. (See Sicario if you don't believe me.)

    Have to say she excites me in many ways, more than any of the ones posted above (though they would all do a good job of any role in a Bond film, for sure). James was great in Baby Driver, and was a decent Cinderella too.

    If it's strictly platonic, then I support the suggestion of Anya Taylor-Joy for the younger agent.

    For some reason, she looks like a younger identical sibling of Perdita Weeks.

    Hard disagree about CR looking lesser than the other Craig films. I just rewatched it two days ago and it looks as beautiful as ever -- I like my Bond films lively and colorful, and a yellow filter ain't it for me. I'll go watch The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo if I want something gloomy.

    What the heck is going on? James Bond is the complete opposite of the MeToo era. He's a masculine hero, he regards women as sexual distractions. Fair enough, if people think that's unacceptable in 2019 but the above quote is, to quote the technical term "utter nonsense." This is what happens when you have a woman producer pandering to the current social climate. She is never going to see Bond through a man's eyes. Like it or not, Ian Fleming was a man. He didn't see Bond through the eyes/mind of a woman. I dunno what's going on with Bond if this claim is true. Time to end the franchise me thinks, or Eon sell their share to Disney and we can have Disney Bond! You know that is the

    I suspect Bond will have @fanbond123 view as well in the actually film. The new 007 will tell him to get over it and assist on the mission.

    Much in the same way that M called out Bond as a sexist dinosaur in Goldeneye.

    Bond, as a character, won’t all of a sudden be “progressive”. He’ll have his antiquated view questioned by others in the context of the story.

    Naomi Scott would be great as a new spy



    She’s waiting to become a movie star

    They could just make a female agent 002 or whatever, and then they could still satisfy equality and metoo. Making her 007 smacks of being a gimmick.

    I think you're right that the story probably wouldn't be drastically different if she was 002 or whatever, but I wouldn't say it's a gimmick. Making her the new 007 will resonate more with audiences than any other codename would. We've seen a million other random female agents but making her 007 would immediately force the audience to take notice and compare her and Bond, rather than see her as just another Bond girl. I think it'd add to the mentor/student dynamic they seem to be going for by having her be his literal successor and it could lead to some fun exchanges between them. Bet he'll be a bit jealous, could be funny.

    So yeah I think it's a cool idea and I'm not sure what people are getting so worked up over. It's not like it's going to be a permanent thing is it. Just a one off to see out the Craig era, like Joseph Gordon Levitt becoming Batman at the end of the Nolan movies.

    And does it really matter if Bond is 007 or not anyway? He retired at the end of the last one, the number's available. The important thing is it's still a James Bond film. His codename doesn't really matter does it. Not saying they should permanently change it or give it to someone else for good, that'd be stupid because of the history behind it and iconography of it. But as a one off I don't see the issue and think it could be cool.

    There's prescedent in the books as well, kind of. He isn't 007 in YOLT, he's given a new number because he's working for the diplomatic section. And it doesn't make a difference at all, still one of the best Bond novels. So I don't see why we need to worry about whether or not Bond will be reinstated as the "true" 007 by the end of the movie. It won't really affect the film and if he doesn't, I'm sure he'll get his codename back when they reboot with the next actor.

    Anything printed 007 trademarks don't matter to James Bond I guess it won't happen end of story let's discuss something else.

    I had to google Perdita Weeks, and I don't see it. I do see a vague resemblance between Perdita Weeks, and Kelly Brook, though.

    We'll start going off topic here, but...Most of CR is filmed indoors on sets, some of which look awful. The embassy explosion scene is the most dreadful-looking set in the DC era, by far, with fake painted trees in the backgound. Exterior shots are few and far between and standard stuff--except the overhead shots of the construction site. To me, great cinematography usually comes from the exterior shots; art direction is the signature of interior shots. CR is solidly in my top 4, but it isn't a well-shot film by any stretch of the imagination.

    Subjectivity, like I said, is just a weapon for the untalented and the ignorant. Oh, and all artistic choices are, and should always be, open to criticism.

    Correct. Having said that I believe SP cinematography stands as one of the best I've seen so far, speaking about blockbusters. The gloomy feeling, the panoramic scope, the thematically pregnant use of light and colors are some of the highlights.

    Now that we have Sandgren I believe we are in for another gorgeous looking film. But all the Craig entries had beautiful (yet very different) cinematography so far.

    This statement got me thinking. I am not sure the cinematography (and art direction) in CR is on par with the other three films.

    Probably not, but I'd like to think of that as a huge compliment to the other films as opposed to an insult for CR, which certainly had its moments too - especially in Montenegro and the Italy scenes later on. Campbell's directing style, which is more direct and less flashy, also plays into it of course. But yes, you're probably right. CR seems to have an old fashioned look to it when watching it these days.

    I too am very eager to see what Sandgren brings to the table. He has a strong catalogue of good looking films already under his belt.
    If a woman/ man gets 007 code what will happen after bond comes out of retirement did he/she die,if he/she does I have nothing to say but yuck very predictable, because it won't serve anything major to the story imo.

    Unless you're writing the story, you don't know how such a point will serve it.

    True but I said 'IF' but we will see

    I agree but the shots of Montenegro are as beautiful as any other entries even better than skyfall I believe sometimes.

    The embassy exterior is indeed pap, but it’s still a very well lensed film on the whole, albeit falling short of the technical excellence of Deakins’ work. The action is magnificently covered - parkour being the standout, but Miami and Venice are really well framed and choreographed. I’m a particular fan of the torture scene.

    I mean, I’m not forcing my view on anyone in the comment you quoted. Merely suggesting a possible story point they might utilise.

    Also, if you believe the Daily Mail’s report about Waller-Bridge’s involvement, then you should give equal merit to their claim in the same report suggesting there will be a female 007.

    You can’t just cherry-pick parts of the news that suit your own view and ignore or deny anything you dislike in the same story.

    Otherwise, you’ll only listen to the stuff that suits and props up your own opinion.

    Not true at all to me. The production design, especially the Poker room in the Casino Royale are stunning, also the interior of the train in Montenegro, the restaurant where Bond and Vesper have dinner before she gets the call -- not to mention how the colors pop in all the Bahamas Ocean Club scenes (outdoors). Very striking.

    And the shot of Valenka coming out of the water with the sunset is more beautiful than anything I saw in SP.

    I don't look for gloomy looking film in Bond.

    I'm not saying people "just [need to] accept it". Read my post again that you quoted initially.

    In actual fact, I'm quite enjoying the debate it's sprung up. I don't want to force my opinion down any one's throat, I kinda like the conversation that we are having on this forum currently. It's way more interesting than arguing over whether you like David Arnold or CR's cinematography for the 10000th time.

    (Also; The Guardian article directly quotes the Daily Mail.They are still the source on this - and I agree that is unfortunate)

    I mean, I’m not forcing my view on anyone in the comment you quoted. Merely suggesting a possible story point they might utilise.

    Also, if you believe the Daily Mail’s report about Waller-Bridge’s involvement, then you should give equal merit to their claim in the same report suggesting there will be a female 007.

    You can’t just cherry-pick parts of the news that suit your own view and ignore or deny anything you dislike in the same story.

    Otherwise, you’ll only listen to the stuff that suits and props up your own opinion.

    You know what I'm talking about stop saying people have to "just accept it". I respect your opinion and everyone else's. I'm not suggesting anything maybe the daily mail is true we don't all we do know is that they don't have a good track record besides Baz. We will find out I have more faith in the truth that is the guardian or any other trustworthy organization and they say it has nothing to pretty much do with the daily mail article. There for I'm not cherry picking my own needs I'm stating the facts and the overall likelihood. @Pierce2Daniel

    I'm not saying people "just [need to] accept it". Read my post again that you quoted initially.

    In actual fact, I'm quite enjoying the debate it's sprung up. I don't want to force my opinion down any one's throat, I kinda like the conversation that we are having on this forum currently. It's way more interesting than arguing over whether you like David Arnold or CR's cinematography for the 10000th time.

    (Also; The Guardian article directly quotes the Daily Mail.They are still the source on this - and I agree that is unfortunate)

    And imo its way more interesting than people talking about who will be next bond girl, we could at least talk about sandgren cinematography for bond 25 because he is already in it, actress you mentioned are yet to be confirmed, so with all due respect when you use words like my debate is more interesting than yours, it speaks volume.

    The thing that makes the female 007 rumor 100% believable is that it makes perfect sense. This is exactly the kind of idea that could convince someone such as Fukunaga to direct a Bond film. As for who should play her: the best would be an A-list actress aged 30 to 35 in my humble opinion.

    Hard disagree about CR looking lesser than the other Craig films. I just rewatched it two days ago and it looks as beautiful as ever -- I like my Bond films lively and colorful, and a yellow filter ain't it for me. I'll go watch The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo if I want something gloomy.

    Amen.

    How about Hayley Atwell for the female 007 role? We all know from her role as Peggy Carter in the MCU that she can really play an agent very well and she could potentially have great chemistry with craig!

    I do wonder how this film will look, and how Linus Sandgren will approach it.

    It’s no doubt believable.

    (Still can't get this BB code editing right)

    But here:
    (It might be just your opinion here though can't tell though) "The new 007 will tell him to get over it and assist on the mission."

    Here: What's most hilarious about your comment is the general distaste of Waller-Bridge based off the fact that she is popular and having a zeitgeisty moment.

    Clearly, you haven't seen Killing Eve.

    Here: There i also a school of thought, that you can't be racist to a white person. Whislt there are flaws to the argument. Much of it holds up.

    Here: Complain if you feel offended. i'm just trying to speak about this intelligently.

    in the meantime perhaps read this article:

    Here: (Maybe here)
    I’m just pointing out that there is a clear bias – which comes predominantly from white males – to maintain tradition. Mainly as tradition as institutionally protected and preserved this group.

    Any perceived threat to this tradition is instantaneously treated with contempt and is outwardly rejected.

    It’s clear that Bond 25 needs to disrupt the status quo. Waller-Bridge is only doing a polish of the script. Nonetheless, she’s an outwardly feminist writer who has openly spoken of “female rage” influencing her work.

    Especially here: People need to get over the fact that a woman can write a Bond film and that there can be a female 007. I'm already bored of reading grown men trying to justify their misogyny with arguments of 'it's not Fleming' or 'goes against tradition'.

    Fleming never intended for Bond to be an ageless miracle man who someone gets younger every decade. Yet, we not only accept it, we welcome it. Tradition would dictate that we'd never get a film as bold as CR or SF. Yet we are overjoyed when we get a great new film.

    Time to accept change.

    Still is when you start pushing the race thing for your agenda: Did I just make every angry white guy cry? (All qoutes from you)

    Just a few there don't know how you couldn't remember all that? Like I said I respect your opinion and you can have an opinion but don't push it on people. And don't call me cherry picking I'm just going through some of the comments and if you still don't believe me ask the moderators because they called you out on it so so as other people on the thread.
