    Early December, they say. Who are they? Only they know.

    But hey, we're days from that slightly blurred mark, so all we have to do is something we're very well trained to by now: wait.

    Great interview.....essentially Craig confirms that NTTD is his finale:
    herec-daniel-craig_01-strednaW.jpg

    We were one of the first to talk to Daniel Craig (51) about his latest Bond film: "My bones are starting to crack"
    After fifteen years and five Bond films, Daniel Craig is now really on the hook. Although the recordings of 'No Time to Die' were only completed three weeks ago and the film will only be available in cinemas with us from the beginning of April, we already managed to get the British actor into an exclusive conversation. "I had a particularly hard time saying goodbye to colleagues."

    Editorial November 20, 2019 00:00
    'It's a wrap. We'll see you in the cinema in April 2020, "was recently read on the official 007 Twitter account. In the tweet a photo of Daniel Craig, posing in a tuxedo and a thick winter coat next to director Cari Joji Fukunaga. In Craig's hands: the very last folding sign of 'No Time to Die'. This was it. This time for real, because the actor made headlines four years ago when he said he would rather cut his wrists than shoot a fifth Bond film. He didn't feel like it anymore and was ready for a rest, but he was 'stuck' because he had already signed the contract for the new film.

    Craig takes those statements back during our interview in Los Angeles without hesitation. "I am really, really happy to have added one more film. It was terribly hard work, but the other four were also. Bond is a gigantic production that countless people have worked on. I think I have them miss most of all. "

    Worked together for thirty years
    Craig says he had to say goodbye to people he knew even before his Bond era. "I have worked with some for over thirty years, that is how long I have been in Hollywood. Five films, that is a lot, and it is therefore inevitable that you get a close bond with those guys. Saying goodbye is very difficult for me I know that someday I will meet them somewhere on a set, but that is something else. "

    Although 'No Time to Die' will only be available in cinemas in six months' time, the film has already completed an exceptionally turbulent route. For example, a new director had to be found twice, the filmmakers did not even get to know the script and an explosion caused a part of the set to collapse and a crew member to be injured. It became the most expensive Bond print ever, with a budget of no less than 250 million euros, about five million more than predecessor 'Specter' from 2015. Moreover, Craig was also seriously injured in his ankles. It is by far the most cursed film in the history of the series, although the protagonist tries to put it all into perspective. "Oh well, I got injured with every Bond movie. That's just part of it."

    Three possible endings
    The last recordings took place in Matera, a rocky city in the southern Italian region of Basilicata, which is sometimes called the cultural capital of Europe. Craig says he couldn't have imagined a better location for the latest film. "The city plays a very important role in the film, making it a character in itself. The opening scene is also set there."

    Where and how 'No Time to Die' will end, however, remains a mystery to everyone. For example, a British newspaper recently reported that the outcome is so secret that even Craig does not know him. According to the newspaper, Fukunaga would have filmed three possible endings, so that the climax would not leak.

    And what does a Bond actor do when the recordings are finally over? "The film was canned on Friday night, and I was already on the beach on Monday morning," laughs Craig. "I lay down there and I lay down for hours. I could just as well have taken a walk, but after such a long and tiring shoot I was really ready for a satisfying holiday."

    Hollywood would not be Hollywood, should a plottwist turn up somewhere, so we ask whether it is really the last time that we will see Craig as Bond. (determined) "Yes. We must be able to give other actors the chance to play Bond, too. (laughs) It may be hard to believe, but I really liked James Bond. It was one of the most intense things I've done it. But it takes a lot of energy. And I'm getting old. My bones are starting to crack. "

    Grumbler
    Craig talks fast, honest and funny. Fully at ease. Surprising, because during earlier meetings he often took a closed position. Moreover, more than one paparazzi photo is circulating on which he sticks out his middle finger. Cr

    Of course I want Craig back as I am a little afraid of who they will pick for actor 7 but they surprised me with Craig and I loved his first two outings his second two were weaker in my opinion and hopefully No time to die is a strong return to Casino Royale/Quantum of Solace

    If it is time to say bye to Craig oh well was hoping he would be in a 6th film but if not welcome the age of Tom Hardy (hey one can dream right)

    Tom Hardy is the only person I can see playing Bond truly convincingly. He has everything - the charm, the physicality, the looks...

    Maybe he has no interest but Eon should push for him. Who cares if he’s more we’ll known.

    Here's the tidbit:

    "You were brought in to work on the latest James Bond script. Have you read the original Bond books by Ian Fleming — and if so, what do you think are the best and worst?

    I hadn’t read them, but started while I was working on the movie. I don’t want to say which ones I was inspired by just yet."

    Just like many thought that Craig wasn’t Bond. How wrong they were. Luckily they weren’t directors/casting directors who require foresight and the ability to think outside of the box.

    Of course. I just meant that this wasn’t the thread for discussing the next Bond. And, as such, this isn’t the proper thread to say that Hardy is just a greasy hair puff lipped bruit. There is a proper thread for that, ya know? ;)

    Now, back to Daniel Craig’s James Bond latest and final entry.
  • edited November 2019 Posts: 2,498
    What is there to talk about? We know virtually nothing. I suppose one can speculate. I predict that Bond will drink a martini in Cuba. :)

    Fleming thought that Connery was an “overgrown stuntman” until he saw him in the role. Due to his delight with his performance, he made his literary counterpart half Scottish along with French Swiss.

    Bond being half-Scottish due to Connery is disputed. Ian Fleming's grandfather, banker Robert Fleming, was born in Dundee, Scotland, and Fleming tended to use autobiographical elements for the character. However, it's obvious that he name-dropped Ursula Andress in OHMSS because of the film version of Dr No.

    The car chase couldn't be the pre-title could it? Doesn't quite seem right.

    Matera can’t be the pts. There’s a buildup of bond and swann romance that’ll probably take 10 minutes

    Interesting. I’ve read Lycett’s biography of Fleming but I don’t remember him mentioning his grandfather.

    I would think based on the comment that it should be apparent for fans when the film hits!

    This is encouraging if she is reading the books.

    I have to say I'm enjoying the suspense. My only hope is that they don't blow it by giving away too much plot in the trailers.

    Given that Bond is in many ways a kind of detective, we should be discovering plot at his pace.

    With Spectre, due to the marketing giving away so much, I felt the audience had the drop on what was coming and that for me was a major distraction. NTTD's mystery at this stage is one of the films most intriguing elements and I hope we only learn enough to know that it's an adventure we all want to join him on.
