I wasn't, he nearly walked out on Spectre ... and then there's those rumours that may or may not be true that he fell out with Craig.
Directors always have ideas to throw around... he spoke briefly about Bond being retired maybe he even brought up Logan as an inspiration if I recall correctly. But since he already put this theme in SF in a way I highly doubt that he would’ve been able to craft a strong film with a unique identity for a third time.
No. Robert F. Kennedy Jr has launced a petition for an investigation of the Gates foundation. Check it out for some sobering information.
A generation ago that wouldn't have been a concern, of course, but Bond films are increasingly 'prestige' pictures, and I wonder if another crack at Oscar in some substantive categories (supporting actors, editing, sound, cinematography, music) would be an inducement for EON. . .
As far as all of this goes, I realize that the past is behind us now and we can't change it. But - and I've said this before - it does sort of underline some of the hazards of the slower pace that EON is taking now with these films.
I'll be clear here that the outbreak is not EON's fault and they couldn't possibly foresee it. Still, I'm sure they're wishing that NTTD had been released last year, and they were using this shutdown time to chip away on a new screenplay, find a new actor, and count their billion-dollar box office.
Yes, the current requirements are at least one week, I think.
I have a feeling that is one thing that might change very soon, though.
Yeah, the Academy I believe is meeting this week to discuss this very issue, especially as it's the awards type films that are most affected by this and are most likely to pivot to VOD
New interview with Fukunaga, in conversation with director Miranda July
Just seen that CJF post about this! this man is so handsome....
CARY FUKUNAGA TELLS MIRANDA JULY HOW BOND NEARLY BROKE HIM
The Batman has been delayed by 4 months, to October 2021. The Flash pushed to June 2022, Shazam 2 to November 2022, the Sopranos sequel has been pushed to March 2021.
Cary probably read this theory that was floating around on Reddit back then.
Thank you, @antovolk
Not unsurprising. I think it's good that they are having this conversation, even if it took a pandemic to make it happen.
That’s some “hindsight is 20/20” logic at work. Creative differences happen. No one could have predicted Boyle leaving the project or the outbreak of a worldwide virus. Stop blaming EON for circumstances that are either out of their control or simply part of the creative process. It’s like blaming someone for getting furloughed during this pandemic by saying “you really shot yourself in foot by pursuing your dream job months before an unpredictable world-altering event occurred.” It sounds ridiculous because it is.
Yeah, but......"the truth hurts". ;)
And then at the end of the interview is this:
Sorry, I can’t take this seriously.
I don't think it's satire, it reads more like two old friends goofing off with each other than an actual parody of an interview per se.
Fully agree on this. There are more urgent matters now, than watching the new Bond film asap. I would like to watch it even now, but things are the way they are, we have to accept these circumstances and do our best to cope with them. Even if that means, to have to wait longer for NTTD hitting the movie screens
True. I’ve accepted this myself as hard as it is.
I’m praying for people and everyone in our community here’s safety.

I thought I read that on here too! An interesting theory but it sounds like he didn't go through with it.
When I read the article, I interpreted the comments as tongue in cheek. Either way it sounds like Cary gave this his all which is a very good sign.
More expectations today I suppose. I think Mendes said something similar.
Indeed. May they rest in peace.
