Just as long as they keep him white.
You would think they'd have a couple of main candidates already in mind. Will be interesting to see what happens.
Turns out EON have used the last 18 months well and have super secretly:
- Cast a new Bond
- Signed a director
- Finished the script
- Scouted filming locations
- Casted the supporting actors
They’ve fully used their lockdown time to think about these issues and resolve them.
We’re all good to go for the minute the MGM / Amazon deal gets sealed.
If they're worth a dime they should have. Any sane producer would have done so.
just a guess??
Clutching at straws.
I'm not saying they will have it ALL locked and ready to go but surely, surely, BB and MGW would have used the very extensive and unexpected Covid delays to move things forward. It's inconceivable in my opinion that they would have simply delayed NTTD and done nothing. Storyline and script development and director choices must have moved forward.
Also if the Bond number 7 shortlist or auditions did not well and truly start some time ago then I'm Dr No.
Call me naive but I believe Oct 5th 2022 will be a bit special!
It would seem unlikely that, having just spent a ton on MGM, Amazon would be willing to wait 3-4 years for EON to get rolling on the new stuff.
I am sure the minute after it is finalised, Amazon will be giving EON a call 😂
Plus there's the above story which given the source is suspect yet I'm slightly intrigued by if there's any truth to it (Elba as the villain of B26).
On the other hand, perhaps Amazon could speed things up?
2022 marks the 27th anniversary of GOLDENEYE, Barbara's first Bond film as a producer. The same time span Cubby produced his Bonds from 1962-1989.
He did 16 films in 27 years, she's done 9. If the productivity were to continue to decrease at that rate, we'd probably only get around 4 more films between now and 2049.
Two films a piece for the next 2 Bond actors with several years in between. I keep harking on that, but that is the rate these films have slowed down.
I really hope the ball is rolling behind the scenes at Eon, especially after the ending of NTTD.
Also I doubt they’ll be aiming to hit James Bond Day with the reveal: they’ll just reveal their actor when they’re ready, and I would imagine fairly soon after he’s been cast.
Yeah. That would be cool too. Almost like a stage performance :)
What you mean, if he drowned? :))
Whenever it is, I dont think we will be completely in the dark as to who it is. The trades will have unofficially confirmed it prior to the official unveiling. I would be surprised if we didnt have a really good idea beforehand.
True. I recall the papers announcing Craig a couple days before his official press conference.
Wasnt that because Craigs Mother accidentally broke the news to a journo?
