    Great, finally some news with property. Waiting for the official confirmation from EON now. Maybe later today?

    They were officially quoted in the Deadline article so it's possible that that IS the official announcement. However, I would be surprised if there wasn't some sort of update on 007.com

    That's what I'm talking about. By official confirmation I mean an official press release posted on 007.com ;)

    Craig can now say he is indeed “doing Danny Boyle... Danny Boyle Bond???” Haha

    Universal logo at the start of the film, that will be different.

    Great news, finally!

    Only on the international version. US one should have just MGM and launch into the gunbarrelm

    Anyway YES, about damn time

    CashleyPersia recently said Warner would distribute. Thank God he was wrong (like I've been saying for months), meaning the Bond's understudy stuff he talked about won't happen either.

    I sincerely hope so.

    Cash credibility then = useless.

    Couple of questions:
    1. For someone who don't follow the whole studio thing, is 'Universal Pictures to partner on the worldwide release', as the statement says, the best solution, thinking about the other studios that might have got it instead?
    2. With John Hodge confirmed as the screenwriter, that rules out the previous involvement of Purvis and Wade writing the script, right? Think they will have to pay the duo for the work the might have put down already?

    As far as I know, whenever you're officially hired, you get paid for the project. So, my guess is yes, P&W were paid.

    I wonder how much of their script is going to be used, if any. Maybe they will use some ideas they liked from it? In any case, I bet P&W’s script and Hodge’s are radically different.

    +1 I have much higher hopes for the film if this is indeed out the window.

    Can someone give me a TL;DR version of distribution vs. production?

    To anyone with a clearer understanding of the release schedules of previous Bond films; is there an idea of when we might be able to expect a title?

    Start of production in December. Usually a big press event with the title, full cast and crew. We'll get rumors from here until then but everything will be confirmed then

    For official announcement, my bet is on November.

    They are still going for a big gap between UK and US release. I don't think that helped last time.

    Oh yeah, I remember with Spectre they started filming like the day after or something. Thanks guys!

    The Boyle/Hodge effort must really have been something for EON to drop the scriptwriters they had officially signed on.

    As @FoxRox writes, it makes you wonder if anything Purvis and Wade might have come up with will be used or not. Will also be interesting to see if we - at some point, will hear what their idea was. Especially if the Boyle/Hodge film doesn't turn out to be as good as we all hope it will be.

    No. And as an American, I totally get and understand why you'd want it to release early in the UK. But as a fan, even by staying off the internet, spoilers always made their way here before release. I wish they'd pull an Infinity War and do a global release so everyone can enjoy it at the same time together

    True. Does make us wonder. As things were with SP though, I’d much rather take my chances on the fresh blood we have coming versus another P&W effort. No disrespect to P&W, but it became clear with SP they were running out of gas.

    Don't forget that SP was not their baby. According to multiple leaks, they "saved" SP from being much worse. But I agree, fresh blood is great for Craig's final outing

    Don't get me wrong, I'm all in for new blood. It's just the whole process of how the new blood came to end up with the gig that puzzles me. There are probably more examples of this in the past than I can think of, though.

    Have we heard to what extent they saved that script? How bad could it have been?

    P&W basically took John Logan's plot outline for SP and rewrote the entire thing, omitting the "controversial" bits and filling the gaps of uninspired content (Ironic, isn't it?), but introduced the Brofeld angle in return.
