  • If Eon was a competent company they would take attention to what the real fans want they could easily have anonymously put on this forum in 2013 that Blofeld could be a step brother, then seen how negitvaly it went over with the fans AND THEN NOT DO IT

    Or they could have just watched Austin Powers in Goldmember, cleaned up the chocolate milk that shot out of their noses from shock, then jumped on the phone to cuss Logan out for defamation of Fleming's legacy, silly plagiarism, and gross incompetence.

    I wonder if @TheWizardOfIce could come up with an example of discussion/speculation in a production thread if Bond 23 with Craig wasn't SF but GF (had that novel not been adapted yet), and Gert Frobe, after being cast as the 'mysterious lead villain', would say in every interview that he was definitely not playing Auric Goldfinger.

    Better still would have been if the film had been called Goldfinger and Fröbe had started out playing Manfrit Bumgartner, only to reveal himself in the third act, swiveling around in an egg chair, as...Auric Goldfinger. To which Bond replies, "Oh, like the nail varnish?"

    And Craig in CR ;-).

    But Craig already got rid of his PPK a few times. I recall he also used the P99

    Manfrit Bumgartner

    I did enjoy that. And people say Carry On humour is dead.

    Nothing wrong with low hanging fruit.

    I can see how some fans have been left out since CR. Its been almost eleven years since their preference of a Bond film came out,

    I was all for Mendes coming back after Skyfall, but looking back it was a mistake.

    Spectre was probably the best film on paper since CR, the problem is the action is misdirected, & it has clunky subpar moments.

    I think EON has seen where they misfired & will right the ship in 2019.

    EON moved faster than we thought though, they had a first draft last year & hired a director probably earlier this year,

    First Bond selected by BB and MGW, rather than Albert R. Broccoli.

    Good point. First one selected by Babs more like. Wilson wanted Cavill from what I recall.

    Difficult to cut that cord but eventually it must be done.

    Was it Wilson or Campbell? I remember Wilson being against the idea... or I must've read wrong.

    Wilson and Campbell were in the Cavill camp when Barbara wanted Craig. IIRC.

    While Bond is certainly bigger than any one actor, there's a lot weighing on the selection of each new Bond actor. They scored with Craig. Perhaps there's some worry about striking gold twice.

    Inevitably, and I can understand their position and possible point of view, even if I don't share it.

    If only they hadn't tied themselves down with this silly connected storyline I wouldn't be so inclined to want a change.

    Anyway it's probably moot, because if reports are to be believed he's back.

    “The script is nearly ready for the 25th film, provisionally titled Shatterhand and scheduled to be released in November 2019'

    'Script nearly ready'? Over a year before filming is due to start? When last time it wasn't even ready 5 mins before shooting commenced?

    And called Shatterhand but also a remake of OHMSS at the same time? So he's going to marry Madeline, she's going to die and he's going to get his revenge on Blofeld all in one film?

    The usual bollocks based on comments on this forum. We should be getting royalties from these 'journalists'.

    Although I don't think signing Dan up for 2 more films is that far fetched.

    Producer BARBARA BROCCOLI has been spearheading negotiations with the actor, which will take him up to a total of six films as the world’s most famous secret agent.
    SPEARHEAD.
    Great title for the next Bond film, even if it has 9 letters total.
  • I don't have the link yet, but tomorrow The Sun is going to report that Bond will die at the end of the second one. Delicious, isn't it?

    If they're going to remake OHMSS they are going to require a more interesting female lead than Seydoux. I can't see this happening.

    Or, alternatively, keep Seydoux but recast Bond. ;) Craig and Seydoux really don't have chemistry together. Most likely not her fault, but she doesn't seem comfortable with the English language. She's very good in talkative french films, and in 'Ghost Protocol' where her English dialogue was minimal.

    I'm sure a good actor's director can fix that.

    Let's all take a deep breath. Look on the bright side. These newest fake news articles are certainly way more positive spirited and destroy all the negative "Slash my wrists" aura much sooner :-P

    I think Lea was perfect in the interview/interrogation scene in the Hoffler Clinic. Wonderful multi-layered performance in which Madeleine slowly turned from a bored and slightly dominant doctor into a scared and fragile Honey Rider-esque girl. Lea Seydoux is a marvellous actress. Yet she deserves a slightly better screenplay, so her acting skills flourish much better.

    This has been all but officially confirmed to me, but take it as you will.

    It's medium amazing rumors are able to invoke ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE at this point.
    How far we've come.

    Yes I agree. She's very easy on the eyes, and Cruise used her very well in MI_GP. I can't see anyone caring if Swann took a bullet though and ultimately this is critical for an OHMSS remake to really work.

    I can't see them going down this path (or at least I hope not).

    That's not going away. Mark my words.

    EDIT: It looks like Detroit is going to flop. As Annapurna's first major distribution effort, I wonder what it means for their chances for Bond distribution. They were always a wild card.

    Seydoux doesn't need to do much to Seydoux me.

    Sorry.

    I still hope for a FYEO-style down to earth Bond film. Perhaps, as some have suggested, a reference to what happened in SP - but then an standalone adventure. Globetrotting, stylish, a touch of humor and wit and less personal drama.

    Actually the finale to SPECTRE was smaller scale, I'm looking for the other direction. A larger scale threat to kill millions, assault on the villain's lair, "_________ Nellie" from Q Branch, the works. Blofeld and Bond back with a vengeance. But less personal drama, more humor and wit, sure.

    Hell yes to all of this!
