    Isn't it all but confirmed (or perhaps officially confirmed and I missed it) that Annapurna is going to handle the domestic distribution?

    All but officially confirmed Annapurna will handle domestic distribution and Warner Bros will handle international distribution according to cashpersia on reddit

    Well that's not one and the same; it's refreshing hearing something, I'm sure, but he's just another Reddit poster to me that hasn't proven to be trustworthy. That last update of his didn't even seem to include anything of substance that we couldn't have guessed (distributors/filming start time/etc.) based on other rumors.

    Annapurna has been officially commented on by sites like Variety and Deadline, but not WB for international distribution.

    Just look at his previous "leaks", he said Craig was not back and that either Mendes or Nolan would most likely do it. Besides spilling out fake news so far he only reported what other sources already had affirmed.

    And just a year back, he said Sam Mendes will return, Purvis and Wade are returning, and in the same post mentions that Broccoli was eyeing other candidates even though "Daniel Craig WILL return."

    I can say with certainty, Barbara has weighed up the candidates. There’s a line peddled here which suggests it’s Craig, or nothing. It’s not true. He was and still is the preference, but she’s an astute Producer and has had options on the table for some time, just like Cubby.

    EDIT: I’m not suggesting this guy is in anyway connected. If you have a vague idea of how these things work you can draw the same conclusions.

    Bond 25 was probably going through several different stages for the past two years to figure out which direction it was going after the disappointing outcome of spectre so there could be truth into all the claims casheypersia made so I wouldn't necessarily call him a hack cause he sounds like he knows what he's talking about

    Let's just hope she doesn't lecture him on sexual harrassment in the workplace and make him look like an ass.

    If bond looks like an idiot in this movie I don't know what I'll do.

    There is a good to fair chance that the villain of B25 if they ever decide to release the film, will be a woman that he had “relations” with in the past and his come back to haunt him because he forgot about her and wasn’t faithful or some nonsense or she’s mad because he’s a womanizer

    He does know what he’s talking about. The news he’s filtered is the news he has heard through the industry. And a big film like Bond has many plates in the air. All he can report is what he has heard.

    I was quite close to some of the producers of the Robocop remake while it shot here in Toronto. If I reported everything I heard about the story and casting while it was still being developed, I would have contradicted myself a thousand times over.

    Development is the time of many changing ideas.

    I'm not saying he's a liar/hack/hypocrite, but I'm not saying the guy is definitely an insider just yet, either. We'll see what pans out and what ends up being confirmed, but regardless of who it is or what connections they say they have, I'm awaiting confirmations. Not that it's not fun discussing the possibilities of all these rumors, don't get me wrong. Better than nothing.

    Same thing happened on this site and drove away a very informed writer-director who actually has connections to EoN @Goldeneye0094 . He worked on LTK, and still has many friends there. But, alas, he was called a liar too and got a few nasty PMs....

    I can't recall any of this happening sadly. Was he the one that shared those BTS photos of LTK? Those were great.

    No @Creasy47 , this was the gentleman known as @ColonelSun . I know him, we keep in contact every week. He’s the real deal.

    Interesting that picture Megan Ellison posted on Instagram. Subtle confirmation that her and Warner bros will be tackling distribution for bond 25?

    He wasn’t ousted @Goldeneye0094 ; he left the forum after some nasty PMs and was also asked to prove who he was by giving up his privacy. If he wasn’t willing to do that, he was told that that proved he was a liar and fraud.
    Furthest thing from it.
    I can tell you he has a wealth of knowledge and still checks out the site to see how wrong most of us are. However, I think we have lost him as a contributor after the slings he took.
    He’s a good man. Very genuine. Extremely talented. He didn’t need any mud slung his way. He was giving us an insiders look at EoN!

    Wow and just think of the info he could have given us about bond 25 what a shame!

    Yes, indeed. I’m lucky to call the guy a friend.

    Cashleypersia has caveated his statements. He's piecing it together based on sources and has indicated that it could be incorrect. His sources are better than ours but that doesn't mean that everything he hears is legit. Moreover, things are indeed changing. After all, EON came out and said that this film would be written by P&W last year. From what we know now, that is unlikely to be the case.

    So I just choose to take his info with a pinch of salt and have fun with it, like everything else (from everyone, and I mean absolutely everyone) until we get official word from the powers.

    After all, we have heard on this site at varying times that we would be getting a 'back to back' with Craig and then also that EON would be moving into higher gears in April. I think we can agree that neither is likely to be or was the case. Furthermore, I recall legit sources pronouncing on this very site that EON had the distributor once Craig made his announcement last year and stating why he made the announcement the way he did. We know now that those were assumptions, just like what we all do here.

    Bottom line, I think it's all up in the air until they lock down a few key items. Once they do, I'm sure we'll get that long awaited announcement.

    Maybe if you can @peter find out from him what he knows about bond 25?

    @Goldeneye0094, that’s something for this gentleman to decide to do of his own accord. And after the history, I don’t think it’s something he will readily do.

    Megan Ellison on instagram this month. She's the founder of Annapurna...

    This is a graphic that originally appeared in The Hollywood Reporter (same story that said MGM was trying to sell itself). The guy in that image is Kevin Tsujihara of Warner Bros.

    No, it's not confirmed. People thought that was the case when Deadline Hollywood had a story to that effect in November. But, more recently, The Hollywood Reporter, came out with a story saying there had been a delay because MGM is trying to sell itself.
