    For me the biggest revelation in the Malek interview is the word that he did not want to play a terrorist associated with any religion. He has been very clear in the past that he wouldn't take any more roles playing terrorists just because of his ethnic origins. It's something that this YouTuber called him out on when his first big gig post-Oscar was a villain role:


    I'm glad that Cary didn't just want to cast Malek as he needed an Arab actor. (Also, if you look at the @MI6 article they omit this portion of the interview which I find very weird!! Check the artile below - they avoid mentioning that quote. Why omit it @MI6??????).



    Regardless, Malek is a terrific actor. I liked him as Freddie Mercury, but his best work by a country mile is as Elliot on Mr. Robot.

    This was his look on Monday when he gave the interview and should be close to his look in Bond 25:

    Rami said that he will look quite a bit different in Bond 25. Maybe even Barry Gower (prosthetic makeup designer) was hired to create new look of Rami Malek character using prosthetics).

    He's a very weird looking dude that's for sure. Kinda reminds me of a hipster Peter Lorre.

    I recently saw this photo and it's giving me the creeps. Mainly because he's trying to look nice and presentable but it just seems so unnatural.

    He's such perfect casting for a villain. Bond was lucky to get him early, before every other franchise tries to get him. He'd be a great Joker or Riddler.

    I almost think you don't need to get Rami to wear any make-up as he's creepy-looking enough. This video has been doing the rounds on Twitter recently:


    BUT.........................I think it's Rami who gets shot by the child and it leaves him with scaring which we can see on the stunt double here:

    If so, I hope it's only very minor and no overwhelming. They kinda did something similar with Waltz's Blofeld.

    Rami reminds me of Benicio in LTK, but with XL eyes and eyelids.

    The SF teaser is one of the very best in the franchise. I'm hoping for the same kind of inventive tone and approach. Being that we're still relatively early in the shoot (assuming they're targeting an August release with Hobbes and Shaw), that might make the most sense.

    I think its easier TBH with all the CGI and technology we have today.

    Barely lifted a finger is quite an exaggeration, but the quality of the digital replacement in Logan is the gold standard; it’s beautiful work.

    Quite right. And I, for one, am not afraid of those. If it disappoints, so be it. I've a Bond fan long enough to have learned to deal with disappointment. One should not be afraid to set the hope bar way up high. Expectations management is for SW fans. Bond fans are braver than that ;) Besides, I could never learn to lower that particular bar for a Bond film, or I wouldn't appreciate the production process, which I do appreciate, a lot. Even one as infernal as this one has been.
    What About this production process is infernal, compared to what we know About Bond productions in General? Some Happenings before production started might have been a bit exotic, but since production started we basically don´t know enough to call the process anything. And especially this Malek interview and Craig´s Video from the other day suggest that the Absence of officially published News does by no means mean the production isn´t steaming ahead.

    I was surprised the last couple of days to spot a load of Orlebar Brown bus adverts in London. And then to walk past the shop and see lots of 007 logos.

    I can't believe that a campaign this close to film production is not in some way related to the new movie. Also, such prominent use of the 007 logo is quite unusual.

    He reminds me of a young Richard Kiel, or Michael Shannon.

    Well, in the QOS's production, a stunt driver died, Craig had a shoulder injury and a sliced finger, there was a writer's strike and location issues. That was a hellish production.

    In this one, from the top, a director left, a writer left, new ones were brought in for a new story, several writers in fact, Craig had an ankle injury, a set blew up in Pinewood, and prior to all of this we had studio wars.

    And to tell you the truth, all Bond productions have been hellish in a way or another. Some more than others. I find it natural, so I didn't call it hellish in a demeaning way. It's just business as usual in show business.

    For all we know, they're having a blast most of the time. Life, eh?

    Did the driver really die on QOS? I knew someone was badly injured.

    You're quite right, @Getafix, Aris Comninos was left in a coma after his car collided with a lorry and then crashed into a wall. He suffered a fractured cranium. I have no information of his status nowadays. A brutal day, that was, for the production. According to the IMDB, this was his last film.

    I remember Terry Bamber telling me this story in one of his classes. A truly awful day indeed.

    I'd always thought the car crashing into the lake and the injured stuntman were the same incident but apparently not.

    https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/stuntman-in-coma-as-bond-curse-strikes-again-815507.html

    I can only assume that there are some seriously serious non disclosure clauses for stuntmen and those around them not to talk about what happens in the event of a serious accident/injury like this. Presumably if he has not worked since the injury was pretty catastrophic and the insurance payout would probably have reflected this.

    Tragic.

    I remember that day, when this truly tragic event occurred. I live(d) more or less 30 minutes by car from that part of the lake and I know that road very well. It's beautiful but quite dangerous and even before the accident I always thought how difficult would've been to film a car chase in that particular spot. They were filming the scene where the Quantum Alfa Romeo crashed into the truck.

    The other car crash was quite insane too, the guy who was driving was able to survive by a miracle. The AM sank into the lake after a 50 meters jump...

    A car was driven into a lake during a Transport from one place to another place, it had Nothing to do with film Scenes.

    Akstully, it's easier to conceal in this day and age with cgi face transfers.

    So if you guys listen carefully Prince Charles says “How far a long are you with the production?”

    Cary replies “We go on until October.”

    He also mentions something about Felix Leiter and then says “yes it’s very important to the plot.”

    So does that mean that filming goes on until october or does he mean Editing/VFX/Sound/ etc will be finished in October?


    So far they have filmed in Norway, Jamaica/Cuba, now London.

    I know they have to film in Italy and I believe that’s it?

    Filming will be finished in October. Editing/VFX/Sound/ etc will be finished in March 2020.

    Makes sense.

    Also I saw on AJB some possible MAJOR spoilers...
    Photo of a stunt double who looks similar to Craig, with a Madeline double and the girl from the frozen lake in the back seat of the car (dummy made to look like her). What’s odd is they were being chased by two brand new vehicles, they were in an older SUV. Then we see another double who looks like Craig driving the old school black Aston.. Confusing. Only thing I can think of is that Billy Magnussens the one with daughter at the lake and it wasn’t meant to be Craig. He was working for Rami Maleks character and being forced to be a mole.

    The latest known schedule reports that they will film in Italy from August 17 to September 23. With the production scheduled to arrive in Matera on August 13. I don't know if the Craig injury slightly changed the plans.

    I like that very few spoilers are getting out...I think that BB has really clamped down after the Spectre leaks.

    That's the face replacement scene:
