The Mail, so who knows:
With production finally looming on Bond 25 after a tumultuous year, fresh MI6 secrets are beginning to emerge about who’s coming back for the Spectre sequel. Daniel Craig’s James Bond is set to return alongside some familiar faces when Cary Joji Fukunaga’s film gets rolling – according to the Daily Mail , Lea Seydoux’s Madeleine Swann is set for a comeback after making it all the way through the last film.
In Spectre , psychologist Swann was introduced as the daughter of Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace baddie Mr. White, who teams up with Bond through the course of the film as he faces up to Blofeld’s evil agency. In the final scene, the pair drive off together in his Aston Martin DB5 – so it seems understandable that she’ll be back in some capacity. Also returning, according to the Mail , will be Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, and Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, who previously hadn’t been confirmed to reprise their roles.
I don’t actually care about continuity in Bond films.
But if it’s a good movie then go for it.
Ironically this photo has nothing to do with James Bond. Craig is bugging him for tickets to Coachella.
This is a nice little making-of for one of my favourite Bond movies.
(No, not just because of the N64 game.)
(And no, not just because of Famke Janssen either.)
Because of Tina Turner, right?
They’re all good reasons.
Watching Goldeneye after previous films was initially an odd experience. As it the franchise moved some twenty years on in the future, instead of six. But I quickly used to it.
Every time a film changes director, the new hire wants to rewrite the script to make it their film. That goes double for bigger directors and bigger films.
I just hope the end result is good.
I only pray we don’t get anything as stupid as the stepbrother rewrite from Spectre…
That was put in by Purvis and Wade, and this rewrite is an overhaul to their script (and apparently a big enough one that he might get credited ahead of them), so hopefully he can take anything like that out.
Industry publication Production Weekly has included a listing in its 21 February newsletter for “Bond 25 w/t Shatterhand”, with shooting due to start at Pinewood studios on 6 April. It appears to confirm longstanding rumours that Shatterhand is a contender for Bond 25’s official title. The name comes from an alias used by series supervillain Ernst Stavro Blofeld in Ian Fleming’s 1964 Bond novel You Only Live Twice.
I’m not clicking on that, Todd. I don’t want to spoil the fantasy.
EDIT: I clicked. TODD DAMMIT!!!
