    I have feeling its true but more because of someone here said The Dayli mail aserted when they said Pierce Brosnan was out before anyone else.

    If they got that right, i bet they got this one too but Im inclined more towards choosing Aidan Turner it fits more the profile of the previous actors before Bond.
    Hidleston is a little too high profile for Bond. He is not Brad Pitt famous but he has a big role in a movie franchise which is Thor and has done some important stuff in film.

    Turner on the other hand has never had a major film and no one knows him from that medium. He is a tv star just like was Pierce, Moore and recently Sean Connery as well.

    The established actors EON chooses are all from tv non from previous films if its not Turner im thinking they could take a look to the Game of Thrones cast.

    People said Rog was over the hill many times and he kept on coming back with commercially successful movies. OP is Rog's last but one and its a classic.

    I hope Craig doesn't quit too early as he might still have a belter in him. It's a shame they did the whole over the hill thing In SF as I feel he's just ready for that storyline now.

    I don't care if Craig comes back or not................ Just bring back Campbell.

    Bring back Craig, everything @Brady described, hire Denis Villeneuve as director, and we've got ourselves one hell of a film.

    Bringing back Campbell would be great as both his movies were excellent (at least in my opinion), but it's no guarantee of success.

    Agreed. I've been more than impressed with his run, but it's clear by now that all his creative juices have gone in to those two films.

    i would take Mendes - only sans John Logan and sans Thomas Newman.... i don't mind his direction style, i only question some of his story input at times... he would have to be monitored..

    the only previous director i would not welcome back is Tamahori... every decision that man made was a shit one.

    That nutcase Tamahori nearly veered the series towards its destruction, and yet if find DAD immensely entertaining.

    I enjoy Mendes' films, but it is time for fresh creative blood. Rejuvenate the series and get its blood pumping again with new visionaries and narrative directions.

    i dont disagree... especially from a writing perspective - desperately need something new there... it's been virtually the same people since 1999 - time to flip the matress.

    Keep Craig but ditch Mendes.

    Cambell did a good job with CR but GE remains one of my least favourite entries. Third from bottom.

    I would welcome Campbell but I don't see it happening.

    To clarify I like Mendes but he's given Bond all he has plus I don't alway agree with his take on Bond.

    Logan no never no ...no NO!! P&W? also no no NEVER!!!! No!!

    Btw the Craig quit story is viral now. So if not true someone better say something soon.

    I agree. I miss seeing more of the real location work, like in some of the earlier Bond films. I recently watched LALD and I could almost smell the bayou during the boat chase sequence. The croc scene also similarly popped on blu ray. CGI cannot recreate the atmosphere of a location imho, although it can for the most part recreate the visuals. The same goes for the Thailand canal/klong (which I have visited in real life) sequence in TMWTGG. One can almost smell the water in the film. The SF pretitles sequence gave off a similar vibe to a degree, due to the on site location work in Istanbul, but there was also the obvious enhanced CGI during the bike ride.

    Yes, I certainly miss the days of the myriad of obvious Moore stuntmen in basically every Moore action scene.

    Films in general just cost way more these days: inflation, larger bureaucracy, more middle men, various companies producing them that want a cut, etc. QoS and SP still had lots of on location shooting that isn't as cheap as it was during the '60's and '70's. Some of the older films also kept to one major location (DN, FRWL, TB, YOLT, OHMSS, LaLD, etc.) so it was easier to keep costs down that way. That changed around the times of TMWTGG, TSWLM for sure.

    Mendes4Lyfe just seems obsessed with Campbell coming back. Not gonna happen.

    I feel Craig has one more in him; 5 is a nice, round number of entries for any Bond.

    I don't feel the Craig era has used locations particarly well, sadly. One exception might be Venice in CR.

    All this is speculation- Daily Mail isn't the most reliable site, is it. Until EON or Craig come out with a statement, Craig's still the guy. And Heaven only knows when we get another movie. Why is this so hard?

    Understatement ahoy!

    The Daily Mail is poisonous, hateful and nothing you read on it can be believed.
    That's not to say that this story is false, of course.... just that it being on that vile publication means nothing.

    Whether it's true or not every movie channel online is reporting the story, I would like Craig to stay on... potential replacements don't impress me to be honest, though my gut tells this could be it for his tenure.

    And Haiti in QOS.

    If someone had asked me the locations used in QOS (the correct answer being Haiti) I would never have guessed it. So for me, that wasn't used well.

    I got it! There stalling by pretending Craig is indecisive, when in reality they´re waiting for George Miller to finish whatever he´s doing and be available for directing Bond :D .

    I'm indifferent as to whether or not Craig returns, but would probably rather not see Mendes come back as both Skyfall and Spectre left me cold.

    My <b>one</b> request is that we never see the return of screenwriters Purvis and Wade. It baffles me why EON continue to employ these guys, and I can only presume that they must be in possession of some compromising photographs.

    Purvis and Wade have demonstrated that they've got a tin ear for comedy, with limp puns such as 'edifice complex', and the same tired ideas keep recurring in their films...

    1) Bond is injured in a way in which his fitness to serve is questioned.
    2) Bond falls out of favour with MI6/is no longer trusted/goes rogue.
    3) Either MI6 or M are targeted by the villain, with the building blown up and M either kidnapped or in mortal danger.
    4) The villain has some past connection with M, MI6 or Bond.

    Casino Royale was a breath of fresh air when it arrived, setting up the potential for a classic run of Bond films, but that promise was squandered with its sequels.

    As a result, I tend to side with the idea of a whole new team, from the actor playing Bond himself through to the screenwriters and the director.

    Bond 25: Bond and Madeleine settle down on a coutryside chicken farm.

    The whole film centers on the struggles they have running it.
