    Delevingne - Bond Girl
    This is going from bad to worse I'm afraid.

    A lot of rumours about this, no doubt she 100% has the looks.

    I haven't seen the video, but all that was confirmed last night was that Craig is returning for one more, yeah? Works for me - I love how definitive it all is. We can now discuss B25 knowing who still star, and then we can kickstart discussions on who will definitely play the next Bond. Refreshing.

    Now that the million dollar question is answered. Will It really take 2 years for a final product? Can't they bang out a script, find a capable director and cast to start filming early next year?

    Managed to get Mendes, hire Logan, get Skyfall written in a similar time frame, no doubt a year of work on background prep has already gone in to this. Also one of the perks of having Dan back is that so many directors want to work with him, as well as other top actors/actresses. He is a good pull.

    Yes, that's all that was said. That and his thoughts that it would be his last. Very unusual, and perhaps he was told to just let it out to shut down speculation and talk for the time being. After all, there have been very few articles on the distributor or even the director. The obsession has been about the actor. Now everyone can focus on his little pic called Logan Lucky and the other Indie thing called Kings.

    They'd have to be deep into pre-production by now to even come close for an early 2018 shoot date.

    What is Craig up to for the next six to eight months anyway? Isn't there enough time for another film?

    So it seems like they've been dragging their feet in that regards considering that everything revolved around Craig coming back

    Delayed Purity, I suspect he will do his usual, go off to somewhere like New Zealand, hit the gym, climb mountains and be ready for rehearsals and filming. Now Craig has spoken, I think EON may give us something more official in the next few months.

    Cara Delevigne would be a terrible choice. She is a model, not an actress.

    Yes. Eon have been rather quiet except for announcing a release date 2+ years away (which is their standard modus operandi anyway). I look forward to some concrete data on this film from them once everything is finalized (at least I want to know who the distributor and director are, as presumably the former is 'locked').

    What's good about this, now that Eon have Craig, is the writers know exactly who they are writing for, which will make a big difference in terms of the tone and the story and other characters within the established Craig Bond universe, like possibly bringing back Wright's Felix for example. They now have time to really work that script and get it razor sharp. Believe me, they won't be dragging their feet.

    I think everything points to EON/MGM/Sony coming to a 1 movie contract, look at a more permanent home post Craig Era. This was rumoured but seems only logical rumour.

    No way.
    He will focus on Bond now.
    He needs to get fit properly again,that is a big regime that he insists on.

    Also he will chill out so he is fresh when shooting starts,plus im sure he will be co-producer again,so he will be involved in all aspects.

    Once he commits to a Bond film everything else goes out the window.
    That's another thing I admire about him,he puts everything he has into Bond.

    But he will need to rest a lot as well,as I said.

    That makes sense actually.

    I just don't understand why MGM hasn't made the announcement yet. After all, the distributor is for MGM films, and not just Bond (according to Michael Wilson). It's their announcement to make and they didn't do it on the conference call.

    I think its leaning heavily towards Warner Bros getting the Golden Bond chalice from BOND 26.
    Which is fine by me.

    Possibly at EON's request. They don't have a movie to announce until certain aspects are ticked off. We've now had EON speak, Craig speak. I suspect next but of news may come on their next conference call.

    These are exciting times gentleman. Craig's comments that he wants to go out o a high last night, seems to accept Spectre's ending just wasn't it. I have no doubts the concept of the story is down and he is privy to it. he seemed excited.

    Dan is a very clever man..
    He knew the tabloids tore into him over 'that' comment ,so he has just got his own back.
    Something his alter-ego Mr Bond might well have done.

    It's really a shame he didn't look like that more often!

    "Daniel Craig will become the longest serving James Bond actor when Bond 25 is released in cinemas. On the day of the US release, he will have been 007 for 5,139+ days, pipping the late Sir Roger Moore's 5,118 days in the role."

    I don't really think that these stats are anything to write home about. Roger Moore may have been Bond for a shorter time but he did 7 films within his tenure.

    Moore didn't even do half the stuntwork that DC has done. Just sayin'.

    Don't kid yourself -- Craig is doubled all over the place. The difference now is that we have to see Craig's head badly CGI-ed onto a stuntman's body. Have you seen the motorcycle chase at the beginning of SKYFALL recently? It has not held up well for that very reason.

    Yeah, the "longest serving" thing really bothers me. It should read "longest serving thanks to huge gaps because EON couldn't get its act together and keep a consistent schedule. And, oh yes, Sir Roger still did more films."

    I don't count the days, I count the number of films. Moore's tenure is still the longest, in my book.

    A mean chill is running down my spine. You really know, how to frighten people, I have to give you that.

    Happy DC is returning, but because Perverse and Weird will write, my optimism is cautious at best. These guys, minimally talented at their peak, are played out, which was painfully obvious in SP. The real hope is that a third writer will be tapped, and that P&W will only apply a bit of polish. We shall see.

    Can't get much worse than SP - who knows, maybe a long hiatus has been a refresher and they manage to come up with something truly outstanding for Craig's swan song.

    I tried to wrap my mind around, what he said in the show and what he said could also be seen as an offer from his side to EON.

    I still think it's not a total requirement for Madeleine to come back though; they could briefly explain it didn't work out between them.

    Or not bother explaining at all. That's the Bond way of old!

    "Briefly explain" is also unnecessary. Come 2019, the general audiences will have mostly forgotten who Madeleine Swann was. Drop her and pick up a new actress and begin anew like they do for every single installment.

    Except Craig's Bonds are not the Bonds of old.
