The next entry into the Bond series is set for release in 2019.
'James Bond' producer Barbara Broccoli has said she's open to the idea of a woman directing the next entry into the franchise. Not much is known about 'Bond 25' past the point that Daniel Craig will be returning to take on the leading role, but it seems more information is beginning to trickle out about the production of the film.

In recent months, female-led Hollywood movies have done incredibly well, with 'Wonder Woman' being the obvious example to point to. Led by fan-favourite actress Gal Gadot and brilliant director Patty Jenkins, the film did so well in the box office that the pair will be returning for a now-confirmed sequel in the near future.

Apple and Amazon have joined the race for the distribution rights to the next Bond film, coming out in 2019.
Tech giants Amazon and Apple have joined the race to buy up the film distribution rights to the James Bond franchise, according to new reports.
While Warner Bros. remains in pole position to secure the rights to the British spy movie franchise – whose deal with Sony expired in 2015 upon the release of Spectre – The Hollywood Reporter believes that a pair of unlikely bidders in Amazon and Apple are competing to land the rights. MGM and Eon Productions, who co-own the rights but don’t distribute, have been hearing bids for the best part of two years.
They are prepared to spend in the same region as Warners, reckoned to be between $2 billion and $5 billion, and THR therefore believes that the digital giants are looking to tap Bond for more than just film rights and believe there is other real-estate to be had digitally.

Craig confirmed to Stephen Colbert on Tuesday that he would play 007 for the final time in the upcoming 2019 film.
The English actor famously said, ahead of the release of Spectre back in 2015, that he would sooner “slit his wrists” than play Bond again. However, he may now live to regret those words, after he confirmed to Stephen Colbert on US chat show ‘The Late Show’ on Tuesday night (August 15th) that he would be reprising the role one last time when the 25th movie is released in two years’ time.
“I have been quite cagey about it,” Craig admitted to Colbert. “I have been doing interviews all day and people have been asking me and I think I’ve been rather coy. But kind of felt like if I was going to speak the truth I should speak truth to you.”

Release date confirmed, but details are still thin.

'Bond 25' is coming in 2019 and while a director is not yet attached to the project, the screenplay is being written by the BAFTA winning Neal Purvis and Robert Wade who wrote the previous six movies - most recently 2015's 'Spectre'. Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are producing, with Gregg Wilson credited as associate producer.

Blake Lively has signed up to 'The Rhythm Section', to be directed by 'The Handmaid's Tale's Reed Morano and overseen by the James Bond producers.
Variety reported on Thursday (July 13th) that the former Gossip Girl actress, 29, has signed on to the project titled The Rhythm Section helmed by Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson. Based on the novel by British author Mark Burnell, The Rhythm Section will feature Lively as Stephanie Patrick, who becomes an assassin to avenge the deaths of her family in an airplane crash - a flight that she was meant to be on.
Reed Morano, who directed the first three episodes of hit TV series ‘The Handmaid's Tale’, will be behind the camera. Broccoli and Wilson said that it was “exciting” to work with such a “talented” line-up.
Nolan spoke to Playboy and admitted he "deeply loves" the Bond character but only sees himself directing it if the character "needs reinvention".
Film director Christopher Nolan has admitted that he’s been in talks with the producers of the James Bond series in previous years, and suggested that he could possibly be in line to direct the next movie in the franchise.
The 46 year old director, who is gearing up for his latest released Dunkirk and has previously helmed the likes of Interstellar, Inception and the three Batman movies that featured Christian Bale, revealed in an interview that he “deeply loves” the Bond films and the character, and has spoken to the people behind the Bond franchise.
“I've spoken to the producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson over the years,” he told Playboy. “I deeply love the character, and I'm always excited to see what they do with it.”
One fan recalled his two meetings with the late James Bond star.
The death of such an iconic actor as Roger Moore is always a tragedy, but he certainly left the world a lot of happy memories with his portrayal of James Bond. But there is one person in the world who perhaps has the greatest memory of Roger Moore in action.

When London writer Marc Haynes met the 'Live and Let Die' star in 1983 at the age of just 7-years-old, he had no idea how significant a moment it would be. He was with his grandfather in Nice airport when he spotted the actor reading a newspaper at the departure gate.

Charlie Hunnam wants to play the British spy.
Could Charlie Hunnam go from King Arthur to James Bond as his next professional step up? He certainly seems up for the role as the lothario British spy, though he confesses that he hasn't actually been in talks about the part as of yet. But there's still time.

Following his titular stint in Guy Ritchie's 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword', Charlie Hunnam is setting his sights on big cinematic franchises. He appeared on 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien' to address rumours that he could be the next 007.

Craig was rumoured to have been offered $150 million for two more Bond movies earlier this month.
Speculation about the identity of the next James Bond actor has been raging for what seems like forever, but one of the executive producers of the movies has hinted that they very much want Daniel Craig to remain in the role.
“I know they’re hoping for him to come back,” executive producer Callum McDougall told BBC Radio 4’s ‘Today’ programme on Friday (September 30th). He has worked on nine James Bond movies, including the four that Daniel Craig has starred in – Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.

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
