In Topic: MGM: 007 films to come out on a 3-4 year cycle

Today, 03:12 PM

As long as we don't excuse rushed writing with subjectivity ;)


I still think they already had the story, if not more for 25 when they shot 24. Wasn't there rumours at some point that 24&25 would be shot back to back? Obviously they didn't, but if there was any truth to those rumours, then it means they'd already worked on 25 at that point, which in turn suggests 25 is a continuation of 24's story (which would likely be a hybrid of OHMSS and YOLT).


So maybe the recent hiring of P&W was to finish, or doctor that existing piece of work. With Craig (apparently) on board it's all systems go on that script and  IF  that were all true, then it would mean that P&W were hired because Craig had just signed up, making that existing script viable.

But ggl (if I understand correctly) either knows the source or those who spoke with the source. I'm usually very hesitant when it comes to rumors, but I am fairly confident there is more going on here. 


(Am I allowed to mention another fan forum on this website?) 

Yes, Tiin007, I´m part of the Archivo 007 staff.


Sadly I can't add much more to SecretAgentFan's perfect translation. I think the best part is that we can talk about a really advanced preproduction...


I'd have thought they'd have had 26 mapped out to some extent because Blofeld feels like an ongoing story. Of course if Craig backed out it's back to squar one. Now that it's seeming more certain that Craig is returning they can carry on as planned.

Well, gossip and EON´s casting list are not necessarily the same thing.

Indeed (one hopes)   ;)

I don't actually think Eon would court any actor they don't want...

Sorry, i should've made it clear that was sarcasm.


Just seemed to me that all the recent re-casting gossip has amounted to a list of actors who aren't right for the role.

I don't even think there will be such an arduous casting process for Craig's successor. I suspect Eon know what they want and will likely have a very short list of people they would consider. And it's even possible some of their candidates are merely there to bolster the case for their dream candidate with MGM and/or the financing studio-distributor. Eventually, if Eon present their case solid enough and their chosen one doesn't completely mess the screen test...I think a studio would be well advised to trust Eon's judgement.

Or maybe they've got a list of actors they don't want and hope someone new will emerge in the meantime. After all, we've just had plenty of speculation and none of the names mentioned seemed a perfect fit.

If they're signing a stunt double at this point, presumably they're aiming for a 2018 release, right? 


Would they sign him so far in advance for a 2019 release?

I haven't a clue, but just wanted to add  a  :D


This all sounds very positive and i'm relieved, though not surprised that Craig's back to finish off this Blofeld arc (which is my belief). I always thought that Eon were simply moving the final act of OHMSS to the first act of B26 (which i still think will use YOLT as a source; Shatterhand/castle of death and all that stuff). If true, then using the OHMSS theme in the trailer was foreshadowing this, rather than just shameless opportunism and i'm hoping they utilise that theme in B26.
