    WHY?! Filming finally begins & now they’re entertaining the idea of a possible suspension/delay. Craig’s gotta lay off the stunts.

    Lol it’s a ruse for them to finish the script

    Posted this in the other thread:
    Couple of new tidbits here:
    1. Phoebe Waller Bridge came on board since the very start of the year
    2. There was a title supposedly ready to reveal but MGM/Universal claimed 'it wasn't strong enough' so they held it back
    3. Don't expect Bond 25 Funko pops as the deal is now dead. Which is a shame because, that's the sort of stuff that's now expected of big franchises/films now...

    - Very interesting, thank you. Is JamesBondLive usually reliable? What's their track record like?

    - Honestly I couldn't care less, I'd be much more interested in some new videogames.

    A helicopter company (Nord Helikopter)has applied for permission to close the air space over the Atlantic Road in Møre og Romsdal 5th to 14th June for shooting scenes for Bond 25.

    They will be using two helicopters, one for camera equipment and one for people and other equipment, and as backup.According to NRK, there will probably also be shot scenes in Rauma.

    Freakin awesome!! Finally! Been saying for years that road belongs in a Bond film. How incredible is that? Now these are good news. Thank you.

    Great find, Thundy. I believe someone mentioned this road on one of the forums a while back, as a location they'd like to see used. Looks amazing and unique.

    Yes! So happy to hear they're returning and bringing those stunning landscapes into the film. This has the potential to be the most beautifully shot and visually engaging Bond film in a long time -- and that's saying something, because I think Craig's era has been particularly excellent in that regard.

    (This is tangential to Bond 25 but follows on from the video game news above.)

    I've said it before, and I'll said it again: EON should use some of the boatload of cash made across the last 2 films to commission a top-tier studio to take a crack at making a game. A big-budget, 3rd-person, cinematic adventure with great setpieces, characters, and production design along the lines of Uncharted. Get us immersed in everything from the clothing and cars to the exotic locations.

    If you take an honest crack at doing this and it fails, so be it - no more video game Bond. But that would be far better than carrying on with halfhearted stuff.

    Agreed very much with most of this. However it does not necessarily require a top tier studio, just someone that is grateful for the opportunity and determined to make the best of it rather than take the generic-games-for-the-sake-of-it approach that most big studios that have produced bond games have eventually fell into previously. In fact the more I think about it, the more giving the franchise to a smaller but more dedicated studio - like Rare back in the day - may well go down a treat as they'll have everything to prove rather than just cash in.

    @007Blofeld aware of that fact my dear man, regrettably a British sense of being sardonic isn't often picked up in text.

    @HalfOfEverything so you didn't get what I was getting at or I'm confused by your statement?

    A new Bond game (or games) would be the only thing that could lure me back into gaming again. Haven't played a video game in 3-4 years.

    If you read the entire article, you realize that they have no definite strategy so far regarding a Bond video game. It's just a catalog-wide deal over merchandising in the gaming industry that starts with a select number of franchises. Expect at least a bunch of free-to-play mobile games where they just change the visuals and a few minor elements to get either a James Bond or a Robocop version. Or some slot machines.

    If they had a clear idea of what a James Bond video game should have, it would have resulted in a specific deal, not something that also involves "Are You Smarter than a Fifth-Grader?" It's basically the equivalent of a PowerPoint presentation where an executive explained that VG licensing could bring MGM a few dozens millions annually for almost zero cost. The program has been okayed, and that's it all.

    Yeah, I guessed this probably was the case without reading through the article. We're most likely far away from getting an actual, proper video game. At least with a new Bond film on the way, it might be a slim chance a video game will be a possibility some time in the future.

    Injustic gods among us mobile is my most played game to be honest if they develop a fun to play 007 mobile game I would love it and play it

    Same even a mobile 007 game I'm down for just something video game Bond related.

    Gorgeous location, can't wait to see it in Bond 25.

    A big issue for a James Bond video game is that it isn't exactly celebrated as a gaming franchise. Goldeneye is the only title most people (outside of the Bond fans) can name, and it's 24-year-old. Compare this to the Arkham trilogy by Rocksteady. If a new Batman video game were released next week, people would buy it just because the Arkham trilogy was great. If it were a new James Bond video game, people would ask for more details before taking a decision.
    But there weren't any Batman Arkham games until they made one in 2009 and it was a massive success. In fact I don't even remember if a Batman videogame before that ever set the world on fire. The very old NES one, maybe? Batman Arkham Asylum was such a success, that some even consider the new Spider-Man PS4 game that came out last year a ripoff of that.

    Just saying, regardless of the Bond games of the past, if what they put out is good enough it will gather interest. I think they should return to third person, make the gameplay immersive so you're not just killing goons but actually embodying Bond in his professional and personal lifestyle, include a lot of exploration and spying, playing poker (not just shooting around), etc. That should wet the fans appetite.

    This was rumoured as soon as Norway was confirmed. Their scouting must have been picked up by someone.

    Bond 25 may not be Daniel Craig's last film as 007, co-star Naomie Harris hints
    https://independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/bond-25-daniel-craig-naomie-harris-cast-replacement-next-007-a8912856.html

    And though the forthcoming film was expected to be Craig’s last, Harris hints that the Chester-born actor might not be done yet.

    “Well the thing is that everyone is assuming this is his last film,” she told The Independent at Saturday’s Formula E E-Prix in Monaco.

    “Daniel has never said that, so we don’t know. It’s still open, who knows.

    “Genuinely I think he doesn’t know. Nobody does. It depends on this film and if people turn out and are like ‘We want Daniel’ – which I think they will – then he may well be back for another one.”

    Asked who she thought would be a good replacement for Craig when he does eventually elect to hang up his Walther PPK, Harris said she simply hopes that Craig will stay on.

    “I started with Daniel so all I’ve ever known is Daniel. I know he’s amazing to work with, I love working opposite him, so I want him. I can’t really think of anyone else.”

    That road is an awesome, Bondian location. I hope Craig’s injury isn’t serious.

    +1. Most recent Bond games either sucked or were utterly forgettable (as much as I enjoyed Blood Stone it was nowhere as revolutionary as GoldenEye had been). Just make a good game and it's gonna be praised.
