[Film] James Bond #25 - No Time To Die

Post by Isgrimnur » Tue Feb 20, 2018 10:00 pm

Tracking Board
Oscar-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle is the frontrunner to direct the next film in the James Bond franchise, casually known as BOND 25, an agency source has told the Tracking Board.

Daniel Craig is set to return as 007 in the new movie, which is slated for release on Nov. 8, 2019.
...
The director previously told Collider that he’d turn down the chance to direct a Bond movie, saying:
They’re not really for me. The budgets are too big. I’m better working at a lower level of money really because I like that discipline of not having enough money to pull off whatever it is you want to pull off. So I wouldn’t be the best person to do those. No. And anyway, I’ve made a Bond film with a great stellar cast (referring to London 2012 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony: Isles of Wonder, in which James Bond (Daniel Craig) escorts Queen Elizabeth to the Opening Ceremony).
According to agency sources, ever since MGM pacted with Annapurna for theatrical distribution last October, the studio has been keen to hire a name director to replace Mendes, which is why the conversation surrounding up-and-comer Yann Demange (White Boy Rick) has cooled. While Boyle’s name is now at the top of the list, other veterans remain in the mix. Personally, I think Boyle would be a great choice to help Craig’s Bond go out with a bang. Here’s hoping the two sides can work out a deal.

They haven't had a problem with good directors. It's the horrible stories that are sinking 007. Sweet Jesus The last two were dumb. At least Skyfall looked pretty and had great acting. If only it had a story that made any sense.

HR
Danny Boyle will no longer be leading 007 into his next adventure.

James Bond Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, along with star Daniel Craig, made the announcement Tuesday that Boyle was exiting the project, which he had been set to direct.
...
Production had been set to begin in December for a U.S. release date of Nov. 8, 2019.

While I like what Craig did with the character, I'm ready for Idris Elba to take over.

The Guardian
As producers attempt to get the next James Bond film back on track, after the abrupt departure of director Danny Boyle, reports have emerged that the series’ longtime writers, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, have been rehired to produce a new script.

According to the Daily Mail, Purvis and Wade have returned to the 25th Bond film, having had their original treatment for the film set aside when producers opted to go with Boyle and a script by him and his regular writing collaborator, John Hodge.

However, now the planned 2020 release has had to be postponed, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson are scrambling to avoid further disruption, and the rehiring of experienced Bond writers Purvis and Wade – who have worked on every Bond film since 1999’s The World Is Not Enough – was almost inevitable. An unnamed source is quoted in the Mail as saying Purvis and Wade’s outline had been accepted before Boyle and Hodge came into the picture; they have now been given the go-ahead to complete a full script.

I'm super excited about Elba, both because he's probably going to do an amazing job, and because it's going to bother the shit out of a lot of racist idiots.

I thought Elba said it wasn't happening.

The stories for the last few bond movies have been just awful. I liked Skyfall a lot, but the more I thought about it the more I hated so much of the writing. That story didn't hold up one bit.

And Spectre, does anybody even remember the plot of that movie?

If he were to take over, I'd like him to speak with a Baltimore accent like his character in The Wire.

Variety
The difficult road to production on the latest James Bond film has hit another hurdle after shooting was reportedly suspended following an injury to star Daniel Craig. According to British newspaper The Sun, the actor fell while sprinting on the set in Jamaica last week and has been flown to the U.S. for X-rays, resulting in a suspension of the shoot.

The newspaper cited an unnamed source as saying that Craig was shooting one of his final scenes in Jamaica. “He was sprinting during filming when he slipped and fell quite awkwardly,” the source said. “He was in quite a lot of pain and was complaining about his ankle.”

While it is unknown how long the production might be delayed, The Sun reports that filming at London’s iconic Pinewood Studios, which had been scheduled to begin at the end of the week, has been canceled.
...
It is not the first time that Craig, who performs many of his own stunts, has been injured on the set of a Bond film. He had two teeth knocked out during his first stunt scene for his Bond debut in “Casino Royale”; sustained a number of injuries, including slicing off the tip of a finger and tearing a shoulder muscle, on “Quantum of Solace”; and injured his knee during a fight scene for his most recent outing as the super spy in 2015’s “Spectre.”

We need a younger, less brittle Bond that can get the franchise back on an every-other-year pace. At this current pace, I'm not sure I have many more Bond movies left in me.

Craig will forever be known as the actor who took the tongue-and-cheek comedy out of the role. Craig is an intense actor, and a more straight-forward action script would probably have served him better. A typical Bond script works best with an actor who is not so intense and can play along with the farce. Hey....what's on Wahlberg's plate?

FTR, I'd have no problem with an Elba Bond, and he'd probably continue Craig's interpretation, for better or worse. Remember when we got a black Felix (Never Say Never Again)? I don't recall a lot of outrage then, but maybe not enough people saw it since it was produced outside the sanctioned franchise bringing back a retired (if original) Bond in Sean Connery.

They’ve pretty much blamed Austin Powers for sucking all the humor out of the franchise. It’s hard to be witty and charming when there’s a drunk in the corner wearing a lampshade.

Of course, that doesn’t explain the Kingman series.

Brosnan Bond once put a bullet between the eyes of a protagonista who said "You could never kill me James, you'd miss." His reply to the corpse was "I never miss." Definitely a change of tone but it wasn't sustained until Craig took over.

Oddly, I found that to be one of the most disturbing scenes of any movie I've seen. I'm not disturbed very often though, you probably have to watch Pink Flamingos for the entirety of other disturbing scenes I've witnessed.

1st off, I don't think she would be called a protagonist, as she was an antagonist.
2nd off, you missed the quote. It was "You could never kill me James, You'd miss me.", not to say that he would spare her life, but that he would miss her company.

Jame's reply of "I never miss" was also meant to be the double answer... Not only will I not spare you - but I will not long for your company either.


Just sayin'

Right on both accounts. I somehow omitted the "me" but still it was a pretty cold-blooded move by Bond.

Oh, I think I was trying to say it was actually ever colder.... To say that "He never misses" in that context (to long for someone) is to say that he's pretty dark in there.

Empire Online
Long rumoured and no great surprise given the ending of Spectre, it seems that Christoph Waltz might indeed appear in Bond 25 as Blofeld. Reliable Bond reporter Baz Bambigoye got the tip-off from a visitor at Pinewood Studios who spotted the erstwhile Hans Oberhauser on set. Waltz apparently winked, "You haven't seen me," but said visitor decided to risk the wrath of SPECTRE and leak the news anyway. The fluffy white cat is out of the bag.
...
With Rami Malek already announced as the villain of Bond 25, it's not quite clear yet how Blofeld will fit into the latest story – and with no official confirmation of Waltz's role, his inclusion is still at the very-very-strong-rumour stage. If he is indeed back, at a guess we might predict a supporting role this time out, once again running his henchmen from the shadows (or custody) as he was, off-screen, in Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace and Skyfall.

Deadline
The 25th James Bond movie officially has a title, with latest movie returning Daniel Craig as the superspy to be called No Time To Die. The pic directed by Cary Fukunaga is also keeping its release dates despite a couple of on-set setbacks, with the UK rollout beginning April 3, 2020 and the U.S. bow April 8.
...
In the pic, Craig stars as Bond, who is relaxing in Jamaica when his old friend Felix Leiter (Wright) from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain (Rami Malek) armed with dangerous new technology.
...
Christoph Waltz, Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux, Naomie Harris Jeffrey Wright and Ralph Fiennes also return to the franchise whose last film was 2015’s Spectre. New cast includes Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, David Dencik and Dali Benssalah.
...
The production of No Time To Die has seen its share of setbacks including a sound stage explosion at Pinewood Studios and Craig suffering an ankle injury that required surgery and convalescence. All the while the release dates have stayed on track.
