    How so, exactly? Because a reporter who previously had no Bond-related scoops starts a rumour about B25 that although it neither has merit nor traction, you fully support it and believe that you’re right in beling against Barbara Broccoli because of it? Patience is a virtue, my friend. Bond 25 starts production in a little over a month and the train will continue rolling.

    In 2017, Snider was (sort of) promoting the idea that Eon wanted to establish a "James Bond universe. In this video (beginning at 2:12 mark) he doesn't really sound like he knows that much.

    - "James Bond is just a code name, isn´t it? It is not his actual name?"

    Seriously guys? Is this guy supposed to be an athorouty on Bond topics?

    Well, now we know where his ridiculous concoction of an idea that Henry Cavill could be introduced as the next Bond within Craig´s last film comes from ;))

    Continuously proven right? I can’t think of anyone here who fits that description.

    Oh, and if I were you I would steer clear of Colonel Sanders .

    I'm with you on that too. I tend to come on here when the title .card changes only. But you have to wade through all this other stuff.
    This thread needs a good editor...is John Glen around,

    There is so much hot air in this thread from people with nothing better to do, life obviously evades them.

    It's true, lately I find myself just coming here just to blow some steam making fun of the chicken little folk, who really are ridiculous. I know, I know, it's probably a masochistic thing. But me and @peter have a go at it from time to time. Sometimes it borderlines sadistic sociopath behaviour ;), but personally, with so much bull being written, I think the only way to go about it is to laugh and wait for more serious and interesting days.

    In other words, I know it's wrong to feed the squirrels. But they're just so silly, aren't they. Just look at them. Silly sods.

    Same here. Best is to stay away and check page 1 of this thread every couple of days for the real news.

    And also: I have stopped reading so many posts after the words: "Bring back ..."

    Supposedly, Steven Soderbergh mentioned in a podcast that a major film production asked him to direct their large-scale British production after the director stepped aside/was removed.



    There’s some speculation that it was Solo. I suspect this is just another example of Film Twitter obsessing over Star Wars. But surely this is actually Bond 25? Apparently, the release date was moved and this stopped Soderbergh.

    After all, he worked with Craig recently.



    I’ll need to listen to the Podcast to see if this is in relation to Boyle – or Fukunaga’s suspected departure.

    This thread is becoming like the poisonous IMDB ones of old. EoN, I think, are just being very cautious. The Sony leaks were quite damaging for them. Also, I think Michael G. Wilson is tired. Finally, I think there's truth to the rumour that after SPECTRE Craig was done. It's the lack of a credible successor that got him back in. He's become the new Connery. He's just nailed and redefined Bond. They have a bugger of a job in replacing him.

    Now come the 10 new pages about how there are credible successors, and how Barbara is clingy to Craig, and how Soderbergh is wrong or right for Bond, and how we don't have the right to news or anything at all for that matter,...

    Things are getting as circular as the nietzschean notion of eternal return around here. We're just dogs around their own tails by days end. Kites waiting for the wind and speaking of storms to pass the time.

    At this point it’s already a win-win situation for me. If there is a delay again, Fukunaga leaves the production or the movie simply turns out to be horrible, I will be proven right. If there’s no further delay and the movie turns out to be great, even better! :))

    From what I understand from speaking to people within the industry:

    ☛ Eon are unique as they essentially operate as an independent production company with minimal ties to a studio.
    ☛ When news leaks about other big productions, it's often because studios are big and cumbersome with news disseminating from the top and the bottom. So when it comes to Variety/Deadline - it's been sanctioned for release from the top. When news leaks from the bottom it goes to gossip blogs.
    ☛ Eon don't necessarily run a tight ship - but they run a very small operation.
    ☛ All deals go through Eon and the studio don't really have a huge say in casting or even marketing. They do have a voice though, just not as loud.
    ☛ Also, Eon are primarily British-based and avoid the influence of Hollywood. They are just outside their glare. Therefore, the big agencies trying to leak client names is avoided.
    ☛ Eon have a few 'preferred outlets' and individuals. Primarily, this is Baz and Mike Fleming (Deadline). If Bond news leaks from others (eg; Justin Kroll at Variety) - it's them doing the digging and the work. The two mentioned are in cahoots with Eon (to an extent). For example, if Baz has a scoop that the villain deal is about to close - Eon may get in touch and ask him to refrain from reporting till a particular time, etc.

    Some sign of life would be great for Bond 25 - currently things seem a little silent. The last piece of news we got was 2 months ago when Baz confirmed Lea Seydoux's return. Aside from Rami Malek there have been NO new names attached. Very unusual for a Bond production...

    Hence the justified concern of many on this forum. But we’re wrong for panicking I suppose.

    Wouldn't mind Soderbergh for Bond 26.

    That it´s unusual is by no means a justification for concern. In the past the usual behaviour did turn out with a huge Variety of results.

    Thanks for posting something interesting. Better than having to read through a page of whining and moaning. I sometimes wonder if people forget that this film hasn't officially started production yet. What does anyone expect from a thread on the subject at this point? All it will be is conjecture, speculation and tangential discussion.

    I suspect Soderbergh was talking about Solo as well, but it still surprises me because I thought he was done with big studio films. Moreover, a big budget fx laden sci-fi film like that seems less up his alley than a spy thriller, imho. So who knows.

    John Glen? Are you sure you don't mean Marc Forster? ;)

    It's been stated a few times already, but all that you need of substance is on page one. @jake24 diligently updates it as soon as anything newsworthy is posted. If you choose to wade into the detail, then expect some digression, to put it mildly.

    My feelings exactly. And I'm actually crossing my fingers and hoping for no news at all. I want to be caught by surprise for a change. In other productions, I usually know the cast, crew, sometimes I had read the script already. And it had some fun to it, but in other aspects, it took the fun away. I hope they keep a tight lid on everything. No leaks, please. No info. None at all. Please!

    True, I need some methadone by now ;) But hey, in the intervals of doing some really real stuff, like saving folks lives, it's fun to see us all squirm with anxiety for something really trivial and...well...fun.

    It might be worth pointing out that the alleged figure from the alleged funding body is - for a film of Bond's size - quite a paltry sum.

    But SOLO has been filmed and released. It's now old news. I find it surprising that Soderbergh would still be sworn to secrecy.

    I think he was referring to Bond 25.
