    Still holding out for Villeneuve.

    Really hope he's still able to do Bond. It's depressing to think we might go from the likes of Villeneuve to Soderbergh... not that Soderbergh is a bad director but it seems like his film record is 25 percent good films, 75 percent mediocre to bad films.

    Yep, stepped away from the web for a while; it got to be a bit too consuming. Lol .

    Agreed. His statement doesn't seem like a flat-out no, but maybe I'm being too hopeful.

    This is a summary of the same Playlist story that was linked on page 1170, albeit writing the same information in a harder way.

    Meanwhile, if you want to listen to the entire interview, (it's mostly about Blade Runner 2047) see below. The Bond stuff shows up starting around the 17:25 mark.

    I’m sure it is; in fact I was aware of his statements when the came out. For some reason they appeared on several prominent entertainment sites today; that’s the only reason for the mention.

    i wouldn't mind Soderbergh TBH... sure, his movies are hit and miss - but so are Scorsese's and The Cohen Brothers movies too....

    i look at it this way - even with Soderbergh's present body of work possibly coming into Bond 25, it's still not as dodgey as Roger Spottiswoode's going into TND - Turner & Hooch.. Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!.. Air America?.. woof..

    Yes but the era when Roger Spottiswoode was considered a good hire was a period of almost unmitigated awfulness for Bond.

    Let's hope standards have gone up a little bit.

    I've enjoyed a couple of Soderbergh films but don't seem him as a natural fit.

    The podcast was posted today. I think the host of the podcast works for the Playlist and it posted a story. That got the whole thing circulating.

    What was Barbara smoking when she hired Spottiswoode, I have no idea.

    Of course the challenge now is finding someone in Hollywood who hasn't committed sexual harrassment.

    Dune is his baby,his vision, so I don't think we will see him for B25 lads and lasses.

    Which is what we knew all along given his schedule.

    There will be more truth to that than you can imagine @Bounine. No one is going to want to hire a director, or an actor for that matter who may, a few months later, be exposed for some past misdemeanours. It could have severe impact on the production for sure, and maybe the box office in the long run.

    It's a major consideration from now on. Look at the Netfilx/House Of Cards fiasco.

    Yeah exactly his reason, wanted to work with Dan on a Bond film but Dune is too big a project to work on alongside.

    Bellucci could be back. Would you like her in B25 ?

    We did not know it all along and we still aren't 100% sure Villeneuve won't direct Bond 25. They are still a very long way from starting to film Dune, and I still doubt it will be Villeneuve's next movie.

    Indeed. They will fall back on the plan that was in place prior to Craig suggesting him, whatever that was.

    Given the hyper climate out there right now I wonder what the implications are for Bond himself, within the context of the next film. Can we see another Belluci style 'seduction' scene in a Bond film again, or will that be considered something more than it is.

    We could be at a sea change moment, although I certainly hope not.

    Bond is married to Swann

    Spectre murder Swann

    Bond turns to Mrs Sciarra for help, and to ensure her safety after a similar attempt is made on her life under the CIA's care. Felix injured.

    A Bond first split screen PTS of simultaneous attacks.


    Bond strips back another layer of Spectre, Spectre have infiltrated the CIA (we have people everywhere). Felix is suddenly in the same position as Bond in not knowing who he can trust?

    Turning back to Spectre, what actual evidence was there to hold Blofeld?, his HQ was destroyed with the evidence, his alleged accomplice Max is dead. He was a clever guy who likely covered his track, and got others to do his bidding for him. Furthermore the MI6 building was already rigged up to be demolished, so they could charge him for what exactly?. could he have walked free?

    Whether Waltz is lying or not. He does not need to reappear in the film, he could be orchestrating everything or replaced with a new actor following him altering his appearance.

    I had mentioned the CIA infiltration scenario previously and think it's a good angle to take. I just hope they bring back Harbour's Beam if they go there.

    Problem with that is the end of Quantum when M informs Bond of what has happened to Beam and that his friend Felix had taken over.

    And I can't quite remember what happened to him, apart from the fact that he was replaced and passed up for promotion. If that's the case then 11 years later perhaps he has politically manoeuvred himself back into a position where he can do damage, particularly to Felix. I can see it working although it's unlikely they'll go there since they seem to view QoS as a forgotten black sheep.

    I expect Bond 25 to be Dark. And very much about political corruption. I think P&W will do what they hinted towards a real world Trump villain. Someone who has risen to power for their own gain. Important for me that if they do go down the above route that the story other than vengeance for Swann is a big, big plot. It is going to need an almighty twist for it to work.
