Pinewood Studios dedicated one of its sound stages to the late Roger Moore in an emotional, star-studded ceremony yesterday.
James Bond's next mission is a little over two years away, meaning producers are currently on the hunt for a man or woman to direct Daniel Craig's fifth and final outing as the iconic British secret agent. Shortly after EON Productions officially announced Bond 25, a shortlist of potential directors emerged online. According to Deadline, producers are considering Yann Demange, David Mackenzie and Denis Villeneuve for the director's chair.
Craig offered US talk show host Stephen Colbert the scoop, and when asked bluntly whether he would be returning for the role, he answered simply: “Yes.”
Daniel Craig may be returning as James Bond in two new films, reports have suggested. A source reportedly told The Sun: “There was plenty of talk about who would be the next Bond but Barbara has managed to talk Daniel into two more films. Despite no official confirmation, Christoph Waltz and Dave Bautista are both expected to return as villains while Naomie Harris (Miss Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q) and Rory Kinnear are all set to return.
No word yet on whether or not Daniel Craig will be back as 007 for a fifth time; film’s cast, director, more details will be announced at a later date
Just because everyone wants Daniel Craig to return as Ian Fleming's James Bond in 'Bond 25', it doesn't make it a done deal.
With Sam Mendes thought to be ruled out of the 25th Bond movie, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson will be scouting for their next helmsman or woman.
If you're thinking of penning some James Bond fan fiction, there are more than a few vital formulae to consider in order to get the tone just right.
