  • Heard from a friend who works in the business that Bond 25 is being planned for release in late 2018/early 2019. Craig in advanced talks to return, with a distributor close to being confirmed. The film is believed to be planned to be based off elements of You Only Live Twice, with Christoph Waltz waiting to be let known of developments in regards to returning in the role of Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Nicolas Winding Refn, Christopher Nolan and Brian Helgeland being considered as directors. Don't shoot the messenger, just what I've heard!

    Good to know.
  • @Mendes4Lyfe Just wanted to add an extra disclaimer that I'm not claiming this as confirmed or anything like that. Just something I've heard that I wanted to pass on for the consideration of the forum.

    Is there a difference?

    They should try & get Nolan. He is the only decent choice for Craig IMO.

    Everything you've just said would be ideal.

    Not Nolan.
    I wouldn't be disappointed or surprised, but he wouldn't necessarily be my first choice.

    Actually, I'd prefer they'd hold off a year if it meant getting Denis Villeneuve on board.

    Good call. Prisoners and Sicarrio were excellent examples of creating tension (Sicarrio especially) and unique atmosphere. And he knows how to handle conflict between characters.

    Looking at the adjusted list is always interesting. Craig has 2 of the top 4 and all of his films are in the top 11. They ain't letting him go without a massive fight. They will wait as long as it takes to get another one from him, especially when they present it as his last and hype it up after 3-4 years off. That will hit a billion guaranteed.

    In the U.S., on the other hand, in terms of *number of tickets sold* only Skyfall has sold considerably more tickets than any other Bond film 1995-present.

    Skyfall (2012): 37,842,000/average ticket price $7.96
    Die Another Day (2002): 27,584,000/$5.81
    Tomorrow Never Dies (1997): 26,911,200/$4.59
    Casino Royale (2006): 25,428,700/$6.55
    The World Is Not Enough (1999): 24,853,800/$5.08
    GoldenEye (1995): 24,403,900/$4.35
    Quantum of Solace (2008): 23,449,600/$7.18
    SPECTRE (2015): 23,001,900/$8.43

    I was starting to shed some more light on this recent article (August 14th) in which Showtime says Daniel Craig could be available after he finished filming Todd Field's ("Little Children", "In The Bedroom", great films!) new TV-Series "Purity":

    http://www.australianetworknews.com/next-james-bond-movie-daniel-craig-irreplaceable/

    And then I compared it with the legal difficulties Pierce Brosnan was facing when he almost came James Bond in 1986. NBC then (bastards!) in the blink of an eye renewed his contract for more "Remmington Steele" episodes.

    So here's why I think Daniel Craig will be back in 2019 for a 5th time as James Bond 007:

    --> The above recent article makes me think that the Broccoli's made sure that the contract Craig signed with Showtime did not include wishy-washy clausules, so that they could sign Craig up for another season if "Purity" becomes a success. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a legally binding 'sub-contract' in place between Showtime and EON Productions, in which EON Productions has more reason to smile :-).
    Showtime CEO David Nivens said this about it:
    “It depends when they do the next James Bond movie, but I don’t think it precludes him is the answer. [Purity] will largely be completed during the course of 2017, depending how long they’re [EON Productions] willing to wait and shoot the next Bond. There might be some breaks somewhere, but [production] will be fairly continuous,”
    So Showtime already depends on what EON wants. I think it would be the smartest thing to do, to have a contract between Showtime and EON. If someone could do some research on this matter, then this would be great :-).

    --> Moreover, it gives the Broccoli's more time to work out a new distribution deal between EON and MGM on one hand and another big film distributor on the other hand (Most likely Warner Bros.? Universal perhaps?) And, a much better distribution deal, in which MGM could slowly roll out some distribution efforts on its own again?

    --> Also, don't forget they made Daniel Craig co-producer. I refuse to believe Craig snubs the Broccoli's by throwing away his co-producer credits. People really underestimate what it means to be co-producer. As co-producer, Craig’s the first Bond actor to have input into director, script and every aspect of production, which means that “Bond 25” offers a powerful creative inducement.

    --> And lastly, Daniel Craig's 5-film contract is still in place (check the legislative registers of movie contracts). So the longer all these negotiations take -MGM still searching for a distributor, Gary Barber saying "Bond films will premiere in a three-to-four-year cycle", Barbara not very keen on making one Bond film every two years- the more interested Daniel Craig could be in reprising his two contracted positions at EON: Co-producer of the James Bond films and an Actor portraying 007.

    http://www.indiewire.com/2016/05/daniel-craig-return-james-bond-tom-hiddleston-jamie-bell-1201682322/

    If you ask me? I'm in for the wait! I'm in for a 2019 premiere of Bond #25 (2018 might be a bit too soon). I'm in for the wait, I'm in for the wonderful co-producer Mr Craig! Because I'm foremost a patient, noble and humble Bond fan who loves Daniel Craig and who doesn't give a f*#k about how fast other spy franchises want to produce a another Bond-esque film :-).

    PS: Is that topic still alive on the MI6-forums in which everyone in here predicts who'll follow Craig's footsteps? Trust me, close it :-)
  • Just a note: The Broccolis won't be deciding the distributor. That's an MGM decision. Atl least that's what Michael G. Wilson said in November 2015. "It's not primarily our decision."

    As is rumored "The film is believed to be planned to be based off elements of You Only Live Twice" I must confess that I am catching up on my literary Bond. How would the elements found in YOLT work with what has ben established in the Craig era, particularly SPECTRE?

    In the Dec. 1, 2014 draft of SPECTRE, Bond's final line to Madeleine is, "We have all the time in the world."

    If this information is accurate, Madeleine gets bumped off, Bond goes off the deep end (again, in the sense of the films) and he eventually goes after Blofeld, a la the You Only Live Twice novel. In terms of the movies, this would be the second time since 2012.
  • Put another way, after cherry picking the You Only LIve Twice novel in Skyfall, Eon would do so again in Bond 25.

    That would be the greatest thing ever, especially if Refn ponied up and took the reins. I think this is all in my/our dreams, though...

    It's never gonna be "all" anyway, not even "most". Neither men nor women. A lot of people don't give a crap about Bond whoever the actor is. And whoever the actor is people will never agree on him anyway. I also disagree that all or most women would appreciate a Bond actor's looks above anything else, or that all or most women would have similar ideas about what counts as good looks.

    I guess i do have to admit i went a little too hyperbolic, whose I apologize.

    I hate when Pierce detractors go the hyperbolic way to criticize him and now i did so to go in his defense. Its just sometimes i feel like its me against the world lol.
    but yes ofcourse good looking is different to every woman and i guess you are right many won't care about Bond no matter who is cast.


    Ohh and i do understand there is a big difference between attractive and good looking, actually there are women who find the veryd good looking men unattractive example my mom.
    Who never really liked Brad Pitt that much who is considered one of the most beat men of all time she likes them good looking but not perfect looking if you know what i mean.

    So as you can see I understand the difference but i do like some very good looking men including Pierce and Brad Pitt but with time ive found Criag attractive as well. He does have a special something.

    This the guy who thinks space isn't real. If he has a mate in the business then I'm Arnold Palmer.
  • @RC7 With all due respect RC, I fail to see what my beliefs and theories to do with space have to do with whether or not I have a friend working in the film industry! Furthermore, I believe I clarified that I don't think space isn't real, but rather it's not completely how we think of it, but then if I go any further we'll be going massively off topic. I'm just passing on what I have heard. :)

    Jesus guys stop feeding the troll.

    Can't believe people are even engaging with this inanity: 'I've got a mate who works in the business who heard that blah blah blah'.
    And people are treating this as credible? At least come up with something original.

    His theories on space are his own belief and should be respected though as they are just as credible as religion so don't knock him for that (even though he is clearly winding you up).

    Space is very much real, so here you go :-)
  • I'm not a troll. And again, I think 'space doesn't exist' was perhaps the wrong thing to say to get across my point, my point moreover is that because of our relative limitations, there's a lot of space we cannot see and therefore cannot understand. But I digress. Believe what you will.

    I've not tried claiming this as 100% credible, but merely claimed it is something I have heard through a friend who does indeed work in the film industry. We both studied Film, he went further and I, clearly, did not. Seems narrow minded to just throw the word 'troll' around, especially when you're equating it to the fact that I just said I think space is far beyond what we have seen or could understand. Won't bother posting anything in future. edited

    My prediction - Bond 25 will be released Spring/Summer 2019. Just a prediction mind, I have no 'insider knowledge', just a prediction.
