Arrow Bond 25 directed by Danny Boyle

But is former Bond Girl Elizabeth Windsor going to reprise her role in Boyles second go at directing 007 :
Danny Boyle reveals he is working on script for next James Bond film
Quote:

Danny Boyle has confirmed he is working on a script for the next James Bond film alongside his Trainspotting collaborator John Hodge.

The news suggests Boyle will direct the 25th installment in the franchise, the final one featuring Daniel Craig in the title role.

Speaking to Metro US at the New York premiere of his new television show, Trust, Boyle said: “We are working on a script at the moment, we’ll see what happens. But it’s a great idea, so hopefully it will work. I’d love to be able to tell you more ... but I’m not going to.”

Boyle said he was about to start shooting a comedy written by Richard Curtis. “We hope to start shooting that in six or seven weeks. Then Bond would be right at the end of the year. But we are working on them both right now,” he said.

Boyle and Hodge, a screenwriter, are regular collaborators, having worked together on the films Shallow Grave, Trainspotting, A Life Less Ordinary, The Beach, Trance and T2 Trainspotting.

Rumours have circulated for months that Boyle is at the top of a wishlist of directors compiled by the Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson.

Boyle’s 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire was the most successful British movie of the decade, winning eight Oscars, and his 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony, which featured Craig’s 007 meeting the Queen and appearing to skydive into the stadium with her, was widely celebrated.

His artistic career began in the theatre, and he was deputy director of the Royal Court in London in the 1980s. He applied to join a seminary aged 14, but a priest suggested he might want to rethink. “Whether he was saving me from the priesthood or saving the priesthood from me, I don’t know,” Boyle once said.

Craig has agreed to reprise the role of James Bond despite saying after shooting the 2015 film Spectre that he would rather “slash my wrists” than play 007 again.

The actor later said he had been exhausted when he made the comments. But he has confirmed that the next Bond film, due out in late 2019, will be his last. “I just want to go out on a high note and I can’t wait,” he said.

Well I can certainly think of worse hands to have it in. Now the main requirements for Bond 25 are to bring back Blofeld; the organisation of Spectre is too big to be finished after the events of Spectre. And Bring back Judi Dench as M

I thought it was good up to the point where Sam Smith opened his mouth.

I enjoyed Casino Royale and Spectre, the other two were pretty poor. I guess this film will decide whether he is an above average Bond or not.

Who should be Bond in Bond 26?

I'd like Pierce Brosnan back for one more as an older retired Bond.

As for a story I'd like Bond to go up against an aging Jason Bourne

If they threw in some ghosts I'd be the first in the queue.

Regardless that he is nothing like person that Ian Fleming wrote about. Idris Elba has one thing not going for him.. his age (I know Roger Moore was 45 but his were less physical than they are expected to be nowadays and they turned them out a lot quicker than they do know)

If DC does one more for release in 2020-2021 he'll be 53 and he thinks he is too old for the physicality involved in making Bond.

By that time IE will be 47-48 so assuming another one takes 2-3 years to get made; IE will be nearly as old as DC was when he left and only has one film under his belt. I you expect to equal DC's tally of films and does 1 every 3 years without fail IE would be pushing 65 at the time of his fifth.

Bond in the books is in his 30's IE looks old for his age (unfortunately)

Didn't think of the age just the fact that unlike Craig I think Idris Elba is good looking and has the black hair required of Bond and the charm. This however is making an interesting read:

He can't play James Bond because he's not a very good actor.

I didn't want to say that, but now its been said I think John Travolta has more range the Idris.

Let Bond be white, he is a paper thin character anyway; some have suggested make a black 006 or 008 and write a better version of a secret agent.

Part of the issue in the last ~20 years there have only really been 2 good Bond films, that strangely were both the first films for the new actors. All of their subsequent films were dull/stupid and did nothing for the series.

At this point the Mission:Impossible are managing to pull off the secret agent/spy genre a lot more consistently.

You meant 21 years, right?

Christ, I meant 31! (Cos, IMO, the Living Daylights is excellent).

Cool we are in agreement, I would also pick Goldeneye and Living Daylights as the best two bond movies of the last 31 years. But then I think Dalton was the best Bond and hardly anyone agrees with me, doesn't help that I think his second film is bobbins.
