'Bond 25' Project Unveils New Director


James Bond

Studio executives in charge of the James Bond movie franchise have moved quickly to announce Danny Boyle’s replacement for the upcoming 25th film, revealing that Cary Joji Fukunaga will be the new director.

41 year old Fukunaga’s credits include the acclaimed TV series ‘Maniac’ and ‘True Detective’. He’s set to take over the project ahead of a filming start date of March 4th, 2019 at Pinewood Studios.

As expected, Boyle’s departure last month along with his scriptwriter John Hodge means that the release date has had to be pushed back to 2020, with the as-yet-untitled film known as ‘Bond 25’ now set to be released on February 14th.

It seems that roughly half the movies out there have been based on literary works - that's just the way it's always been. Books have been around for centuries longer than film and television, leaving behind a wealth of iconic characters that have been revisited on both the big and small screen again and again. 

Here are seven of our favourite literature-to-film icons:

'Bond 25' Could Be Delayed By A Year After Danny Boyle's Departure


James Bond Danny Boyle

The next James Bond film could be delayed by up to a year, after Danny Boyle stepped down as director earlier this week citing “creative differences” with the studio, taking scriptwriter John Hodge with him.

On Tuesday (August 21st), Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson confirmed in a statement that they had parted company with Boyle, with Hodge later confirming that he was no longer working on the project either.

Now, Variety reports that ‘Bond 25’ is looking for a new writer to come on board as well as a new director. This implies that the script that Boyle and Hodge had been working on is being scrapped and that the studio wants to start again, meaning it’s highly unlikely a new script will be agreed in time for the planned production start date in December.

Idris Elba Rules Himself Out As Next James Bond Actor


Idris Elba James Bond

There’s been big changes today in the future of the James Bond movies, with Idris Elba ruling himself out after weeks of recent speculation that he might be the next 007, on the same day it was revealed that Danny Boyle is stepping down as the director of the upcoming film.

Elba, 45, has long been tipped as one of the frontrunners to play Bond after Daniel Craig retires from the role. Rumours about his involvement reached fever pitch once again earlier this month, when it was intimated that Bond boss Barbara Broccoli has said that the time is right for a black actor to portray 007.

However, after a couple of tweets over recent days stirring the pot, Elba has seemingly bowed out of the running for good.

Pierce Brosnan Claims Daniel Craig's Bond Films Have Lost Their Sense Of Humour


Pierce Brosnan Daniel Craig James Bond

Pierce Brosnan feels that the James Bond films have become too dark in tone and have lost their sense of humour in the Daniel Craig era, and blames the rise of the Bourne series.

65 year old Brosnan, who starred in four of the franchise’s films, last played 007 in 2002’s Die Another Day. Since then, Daniel Craig has overseen a revival in the series’ credibility and commercial fortunes, but his predecessor told The Rake that he had concerns about the direction the Bond films had taken.

“I knew there had been a seismic shift, and little did I know I was going to be part of that in the curtain falling on my contract,” Brosnan explained, adding that it was down to the rise in more serious spy films like The Bourne Identity, which was released the same year as his final James Bond movie.

It's been confirmed that Danny Boyle will join spy movie royalty as he is announced to direct the forthcoming James Bond movie, currently under the working title of 'Bond 25'. It marks his first reunion with star Daniel Craig since their 2012 Olympics short movie, and thus is makes for an appropriate pairing.

The 25th Bond film is an important point in film history, and speculation about who will direct and who will portray the legendary British spy has been rife since the release of the last movie 'Spectre' in 2015. Now we know that Daniel Craig has at least one more movie in him, and the introduction of Danny Boyle at the helm is certainly most exciting.

Danny Boyle Rumoured To Direct Next Bond Film


Danny Boyle James Bond

Trainspotting director Danny Boyle has emerged as a surprise frontrunner to helm the next James Bond film, it has been reported.

After what felt like years of speculation as to the identity of the next 007, only for it to revert to Daniel Craig for a final time after he had consistently said that he would never play the role again, the rumour mill has turned to who’ll be on the other side of the camera.

Late last year, it was reported that Denis Villeneuve, who directed the long-awaited Blade Runner sequel in 2017, was the desired choice by MGM and Eon to take charge of the 25th Bond film. However, Villeneuve said that while it would be “a pleasure”, he is focussing on his “dream project” Dune, the movie adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi book of the same name.

Sculptor Bradley Simms is pictured working on the wax figure sculpt of Pierce Brosnan, as Madame Tussauds London announces it will bring together all six Bonds for the first time in October. Brosnan played 007 four times appearing first in 1995’s GoldenEye , he is featured as he appeared in the 1997 film TOMORROW NEVER DIES. - Madame Tussauds London today announced it is bringing together wax figures of ALL SIX James Bonds for the very first time this October, with five completely new wax 007s joining the existing figure of Daniel Craig. To coincide with the release of Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment's SPECTRE, the line-up of Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig will appear at the legendary London attraction for a limited time only, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds' worldwide. This unique experience, created in close collaboration with EON Productions, will give fans an opportunity to stand side by side with all six Bonds - in the same place, at the same time. Guests are invited to see how they measure up to each 007, pose with their favourite and take a stand out profile picture. Each of these new wax figures will be featured in a classic 007 dinner suit, designed by Oscar® winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, based on the original costume. The Madame Tussauds team already had access to measurements of Craig, Connery, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan from previous figures featured at the attraction but needed George Lazenby's to complete the picture. The star of On Her Majesty's Secret Service was happy to oblige and gave the artists a sitting in LA in February. "The kind of information we can gather at a sitting is hugely beneficial, even at a different time period to the figure we are creating," commented Stephen Mansfield, one of the Principle Sculptors on the project. "George was extremely entertaining and generous and we gathered an entire catalogue of measurements, photographs and footage. We are using those along with references from the film to create what we hope will be an authentic and lifelike figure." General Manager of Madame Tussauds London, Edward Fuller, is delighted to be hosting the line up on the first leg of their world tour. He commented, "It's very at Madame Tussauds - London, United Kingdom - Friday 24th July 2015
