From what we know about Danny Boyle as a filmmaker, his Bond 25 is sure to be radically different from everything that's come
News emerged last week that he's set to take over from Sam Mendes in the director's chair, and that the Bond producers are 'willing' it to come off.
He might have looked pretty spruce in those tight trunks back in Casino Royale, but a study has decreed that Daniel Craig is, in fact, the least attractive James Bond.
While the future of who will play the next James Bond hangs in the balance, producer Barbara Broccoli has hinted that a big change in casting is not out of the question.
Hugh Jackman has said that he didn't end up playing James Bond because he wanted to change the character and the plots to become 'gritty' and 'real'.
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.”
While Daniel Craig is still only rumoured to be back for Bond 25, Eon Productions has three directors in the mix to take the reigns from Sam Mendes.
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.
According to Page Six, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has all but persuaded him to play 007 for the historic 25th movie in the series. Plus, it’s said that she’s really not keen on having the likes of Tom Hiddleston – said to have been in the frame to replace Craig – picking up the Walther PPK, as he’s ‘too smug’ and ‘not tough enough’. A ‘Hollywood source’ told them: “Daniel was very pleased with how ‘Othello’ went and the great reviews.
The list of contenders to succeed Daniel Craig as James Bond has just gotten a little shorter. In an interview with GQ, X-Men star Michael Fassbender said he’s not going to be 007. He told the British edition of the magazine, “Bond! Is this rumor still going round? … You would have thought I was out of the bookies by now.” And then when he was asked if he’d consider playing Bond if offered, he said, “To be honest, no. As an acting role, I think Daniel has done such a cracking job in this age group.”
At New Yorker Festival, actor backs off statement last year that he'd rather "slash my wrists" than do another film as 007: "If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly"
It’s hard to know exactly what’s going on with Daniel Craig’s future as James Bond. Ever since the release of ‘Spectre’ it’s been widely assumed that Daniel Craig wouldn’t be returning as the world’s most famous spy.
