Is there little doubt that the could produce a solid, entertaining Bond film?
Are you suggesting you don't want to be reminded of brothergate every time you sit down to enjoy Goldfinger? ;)
@Birdleson GF definitely should stay a standalone entry, away from the SPECTRE adventures. Part of what makes the entry so enjoyable and unique! P&W must have a thing for making the villains SPECTRE-related. Here’s hoping we might get something new with Bond 25.
I don't want a ton of continuity in Bond 25. That means Swann, Hinx, Lucia should not appear--maybe Swann if it's quick. I wouldn't mind a proper showdown with Blofeld but even that may be too much, four years on.
Once that's done, the more standalone missions can resume. Recognizing Craig could do BOND 26, of course.
But none of these possibilities are showstoppers. The franchise absorbs them all and more.
“This was to be expected after Boyle fell off. Purvis and Wade are reportedly taking elements from their treatment and Boyle’s script and working them into a new movie.”
The Craig continuity is Vesper.
There really isn't the context of OHMSS-DAF to ignore a previous mission. But I should add either direction can work fine.
Even the biggest EON apologists have to admit that it's not normal they still don't have a finished screenplay!
Dude seriously. How about posting something other than "Barbara Broccoli is responsible for everything wrong with the series" or "Christopher Nolan is God and will direct Bond 26". It's gotten pretty old.
And I actually agree that EON are showing incompetence.
I don’t know why they’re even speculating about this. Goldfinger is pre-reboot; he never existed to this Bond. Would they actually go back to the old continuity at some point? I’d be happy to return to the classic Bond timeline, but not for the purpose of doing a daft retcon like that.
I would think that they've come back to bring it full circle and finish what they started. But this report says it's a new script. Whut.
I guess this could be another QoS situation where they start filming without script.
Actually it is and to be honest ....
Why do I even bother pointing out how things work to you....
You do realize scripts change all the time right
In fact here

Dog, he wouldn’t have quit unless EON pisses him off
I appears like Bart Layton has the job as of right now, by what we are hearing, but it also appeared like Boyle had the job, and Demange also. It's starting to get quite ridiculous how much time they need to get the basic pieces in place. I don't like the idea of a hodgepodge script, or writing around set that are already built. I thought the idea of the four year wait was that we could avoid some of these mistakes again, and I think stuff like this is why people can't help but feel the current outfit just isn't up to snuff. I know many are still excited for Bond 25, but after SP, all the fan hype surrounding that (including myself), I just don't want to get burned again. I am going to be honest and say that Bond 25 as a prospect seems very compromised right now, like they are just scrambling to get something together to put in cinemas at the right date, to keep investors and collaborators satisfied. I no longer feel there is a passion behind it. I don't like to say it, but that's just how it seems, to me.
(If indeed they were)
No details on that?
But the return to Purvis and Wade to me is a run for safety rather than a bold push into the new. One could argue that they're a safe pair of hands, but I think many fans agree that the scripts have been a weak link for the past few films, regardless of the talent either side of the camera.
This makes me suspect we may be in for 'more of the same' with Craig's last film, and then - perhaps? - a shakeup for the next actor's tenure.
That would be fine (well, maybe not fine, but acceptable) if it was only a 2 or 3 year wait between SP and Bond 25, but 4 or 5 years for more of the same? It can't help but come off as a little tired.
Maybe this is the reason why James Bond Series has lasted for over 55 years.
