    I’m tired of this. Years have literally gone by with barely a snippet of info. All we know is a supposed release date and Craig and fukunagas involvement. Maybe eon isn’t all that excited for this film.

    Or a Bond film's literally about to start/already just started production and the window between now and the press event is precisely the time you'd expect them to be the most secretive as they prepare the reveal.

    So what is the latest date they have to start main unit filming if they want to finish the movie on time and not cause one more delay?

    ~June 30 / July 1.

    People seem to hold Eon in very high regard and think they have Svengali powers to stop leaks from occurring.

    Often with actors being named in trades, it comes from the production itself. Other times, it's the actor's agents, management or PR team who leak the info. Unfortunately, Eon don't have control of that.

    Eon have zero power to stop these leaks.

    Plus your theory makes no sense as we already know that Malek and Magnussen have been cast. Why couldn't Eon stop those leaks? The truth is that no roles aside those two have been cast. Perhaps until recently, and either Kroll and Baz will break the news today.

    Los Angelas wakes up at 17:00pm GMT. Hold on to your butts..........................
    Jodie Comer was rumoured. Given her association with Killing Eve, I'd say she's the MI6 agent/Bond's protege character that's been talked about.

    Sigh...I mean legitimate rumours from the trades. Not unsubstantiated crap from tabloids. Comer has just started filming 'Free Guy' with Ryan Reynolds where she's the female lead. That film will be in production whilst Bond 25 is shooting. Therefore, she's not in Bond 25.

    Her name is just a lazy tabloid rumour based on her role in 'Killing Eve'.

    Kroll's idea of big news is recieving an extra large pizza 1 minute early.
    Comment of the week! It's extremely annoying how no-name movie bloggers have to tease every insignificant news/rumour. Just post what you know, Kroll, or STFU!

    What theory? That they're being quiet on purpose? Is that really so radical?

    Maybe EON "couldn't" stop those leaks because they didn't want to, or were complicit. We don't know the truth. You're right about talents' teams as typical leak sources, but I think it's a pretty big stretch to assume that everything about the film is going to leak the second it happens.

    Cary Fukunaga certainly didn't sign overnight, and that announcement came out of nowhere.

    These companies have plenty of power control these leaks, based on how hard they want to try. Look at the next Star Wars. It was an absolute vault, up until recently. Or the new Avengers. It's startling how big those films are in the public consciousness, and yet (until recently, anyways) how little we've known about them.

    And after the SPECTRE leak and Danny Boyle pre-production debacles, yes, I'd absolutely expect EON to tighten the seals more than normal on this one.

    They are rewriting the script as we speak.

    Bond is captured by the government of a corrupt South American country because they accuse him of leaking sensitive information.

    Will he be able to get to the airport in time?

    I really feel they will start filming after Easter. Fukunaga is supposedly staying in Matera until Sunday, and will be moving on to other parts of Italy the week after.
    So there will be no filming in Pinewood for another week.

    (Translated from this article)


    Meanwhile, caveat emptor, but Craig has reportedly been spotted back in New York.


    My guess: principal photography won't kick off until after Easter. The announcement (if the 25th is an educated guess) will indeed happen before principal photography will kick off.

    Well said especially about the Cary being director. No one in this forum or any media or tabloid had any idea.It's possible that they have been keeping secrecy. If actors agent or PR team leak wouldn't they lose their job for it?

    Just as another aside from today's movie leak culture: Dr. Who's Matt Smith was "confirmed' (without reference) to be in SW Ep IX. This info was then integrated into wikipedia and spread to every other news outlet as a fact. After principal photography was completed a reporter asked him to tease his role. The answer: He isn't in it and never was asked :D

    Meaning: Who and who isn't leaked to be cast is in no way indicative of who is cast. We know that work has commenced on the film but most definitely principal photography has yet to start. It would in fact be strange to have begun for even the massive SPECTRE only started to shoot 11 months before release. Still they don't have to make anything regarding the shoot public neither would it leak, see SW.

    Furthermore I think there are still some people who have yet to understand what a press conference is for: to get attention for your film. What is the best way to not get it? Hold it when all eyes are somewhere else. Up until the end of may all the movie press will be occupied with GoT, SW IX and Av:EG--all properties that are just released or will be a whooping half a year before Bond 25.

    I just had a fresh thought about the B25 pretitles details in the recent MI6 report. (spoilers)

    https://www.mi6-hq.com/sections/articles/bond-25-april-2019-report?id=04471

    What if Madeleine is the old flame?

    What if Bond 25 isn't a story about Bond and Madeleine in domestic bliss, or evading SPECTRE revenge-killers together, but a story about Bond trying to win back a woman he loved, who he's lost between the films?

    We're led to believe they're off to happier times together at the end of SPECTRE. But that could easily not be the case. It could take inspiration from Fleming's novels - specifically, FRWL - where it's explained that Bond and Tiffany Case were together for some time after the events of DAF, but she had recently left him because he was difficult to live with.

    This would solve a few potential problems.

    - It starts Bond in B25 in a more conventional "007" place than retired, or wed and living a domestic/vacation life somewhere. Less plot work to get him back into service, so to speak.

    - It allows for the telling of a dramatically compelling romantic story that's already had its backstory "done." General audiences will need to be re-introduced to Madeleine, but that can be done efficiently. The notion of of "can they get back together" vs. a "can they get together in the first place" is an interesting spin for 007 -- one the character's never been afforded a cinematic chance to do.

    - There's a massive thematic opportunity in it to explore a new angle for Craig's cinematic Bond. We've seen him be betrayed. We've seen him out for "revenge." But to see him attempt to earn back a relationship he's lost -- well, that's interesting to me.

    Imagine how gutting it would be for Craig's Bond to lose Madeleine, not because of killers or plots, but because they just didn't work -- and to lose her after so much trauma of losing so many important women he loved already?

    Perhaps he's not visiting anyone with Madeleine in the PTS. Perhaps he's visiting Madeleine. And then, chaos obviously ensues -- maybe they're attacked -- and the film becomes a reluctant race to keep her alive, while she resents him for ever bringing her back into this life, and all the while he (and the audience) are hoping maybe there's a chance they'll find their way back to each other, and some happiness along the way.

    Sorry for the long post. :)

    Avengers Endgame will dominate conversations days before its release.

    Of course, but it’s going into overdrive once everyone can see it.

    April-May 2019 will reach geek culture overdose. There's the new Avengers film but also the Game of Thrones final season. These two things are assured to saturate coverage for weeks. Most of the pop culture websites are indeed already publishing daily pieces about the "greatest moments" of both the MCU and GoT. Add to this the likely reveal of the Star Wars IX title and teaser, and it will be a crowded field.

    Hence why they should have revealed the title last year.

    Ben Whishaw is scheduled to be in NYC for Norma Jeane Baker of Troy, through May 19. The play might not make it that long, according to a report in The Daily Beast. Regardless, it shows that Whishaw was not even available for filming until late May. I'm not sure this means anything, in regards to the shooting schedule, as a whole. But if EON is planning a press conference any time soon, it likely won't include Whishaw.

    While doing Bond, Cary Fukunaga has found time to write a script for a tv series, which he will also produce.

    Nick and Cary’s script is a riveting read and fresh take

    That's actually a really interesting take @AgentM72. Given Swann's family and her own career, doing away with her in the traditional sense justs seems lazy, but something more unconvential for Bond as you suggest is far more interesting, and should hopefully give the actors something meatier to work with.

    He said

    “The clash of civilizations during the Seven Years War, which frames the story of ‘Last of the Mohicans,’ has been a long-time passion of mine.

    Doesn't necessarily means that he has been doing this for now.

    In addition to Ben Whishaw being tied up with Norma Jean Baker of Troy until May 19, Ralph Fiennes will be in the US promoting The White Crow from 22 April, with the film opening 26 April.

    I'd also rule out May 4th for the press conference as that's Star Wars Day.

    If they want most of the cast present, it sounds like we’ll have to wait until May (at least) until the press conference. That is, of course, if they still plan on doing one. Maybe this time they’ll just have more informal announcements about the film’s progress. We’ll have to just keep waiting.
