Craig's Bond is great: more human, much darker, less kitsch.

Director Denis Villeneuve confirms Bond 25 talks that could also see the return of Roger Deakins

Director Denis Villeneuve has confirmed he has been in preliminary talks to helm the 25th James Bond film.

Villeneuve, who is busy promoting his new film 'Blade Runner 2049,' has been quizzed during press junkets this week about his rumoured links to the next 007 adventure. His name was among the 'final three' directors in contention according to trade press reports that emerged after Bond 25's release date was confirmed as November 2019.

"I like talking about projects when they’re done," he told the Montreal Gazette. "Now I have to talk about them before they’re even begun. It’s true - I’ve been in discussions with (producer) Barbara Broccoli and (actor) Daniel Craig. It’s a magnificent project; I would love to do a James Bond, but I don’t know how it would fit with my current projects. We’ll have to see."

By "current projects," Villeneuve is referring to a big budget remake of the sci-fi classic 'Dune,' which has been a 35-year dream for the director. "That’s going to be the project of my life," he said recently. But he may not get to work on 'Dune' immediately, possibly leaving a window open for Bond - which will be a much faster production. "After Blade Runner, as I’m working on Dune, I would love to just digest and then come back with more energy for Dune with fresh ideas," he said earlier this year. "I need that right now! And so I need distance a little bit." Villeneuve has also said repeatedly that he does not like to work on the same kind of project back to back. "I don't like to do the same thing twice," he told CBC. "I'm trying to find new challenges and have a bigger playground, you know?"

A lot of Bond fans have been excited about the prospect of Villeneuve helming the next film as it may also bring back cinematographer Roger Deakins, who delivered stunning work on 'Skyfall' for Sam Mendes and earned him one of his thirteen Oscar-nominations. Deakins decided not to return for 'SPECTRE', saying he had achieved everything he wanted to with Bond in 'Skyfall', but that decision may be up for reconsideration if Villeneuve is in the big chair. Critics who have seen 'Blade Runner,' along with Villeneuve himself, say it is Deakins best work and may finally land him his elusive Academy Award.

Other than Villeneuve, front-runners to helm Bond 25 are understood to be Frenchman Yann Demange and Scottish director David Mackenzie.

I hope so.

If he's becoming a director and Roger Deakins is most likely to be return too. :datass:

Christoph Waltz will not be back as Blofeld

No, I’m sorry," he said when asked about reprising his role as Blofeld. "I’m really sad, but that’s the tradition, that there is a new...name. Sorry. I would’ve liked to."

I can't believe how much of a mess they've made of the Craig Bonds after such a good start. Say what you want about QoS, but it was a direct sequel to Casino Royale and continued Bond's character arc to a nice conclusion. Now they pretend it doesn't exist. Skyfall is generally regarded as the second best behind CR (though I dislike it), but because of studio turmoil (or whatever) they ditched Quantum as a nemesis. Not only that, but they go and retcon all of them with the pile of dung that was Spectre, undoing all their good work so far. And now not even that will be continuing. :fp:

I hope the next one is a standalone story directed by Denis Villeneuve, Sam Mendes gets excommunicated and they strawberry floating nail everything, letting Craig go out on a high.

Meh.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

So the next Bond film will see James as a heroin addict that is trying to win money in a TV quiz show so that he can buy a space ship to fly to the sun?

I started that as a joke but now I really want to see it. :lol:

Yeah, he would be my first choice to direct Bond 25, but I think he's too busy with his Dune project.

Ginger people cannot be Bond. Edgar Wright would have to get Nick Frost to do it.

He'd dye his hair like in Spaced, then he basically looks like Daniel Craig

Nick Frost is playing Jaws

At least we're likely to get a decent title song for a change.
