Pre-Production on Bond 25 has started with Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli producing the film. EON Productions, MGM and Sony/Columbia Pictures will be producing the film. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will be distributing the film on home video on behalf of Metro Goldwyn Mayer as Sony's main studio partner and once had a stake in MGM.
However as of June 2nd, Sony Pictures could lose distribution rights to the Bond films. If such an event occurs, distribution would be handed over to another studio after the release of SPECTRE; including Walt Disney Pictures, Warner Bros Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Universal Pictures, and 20th Century Fox.
According to a blog website, it was reported that Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures could handle distribution rights to the James Bond films due to the box office success of Lucasfilm's Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
It was originally reported in June 2015 that Warner Bros may be the new distributor of the James Bond franchise. However, this perhaps will not work out following the disappointed box office drop of Batman V Superman: Dawn for Justice.
Cast & Characters
Daniel Craig is signed on to star in Bond 25 but the actor has publicly stated that he would step down from the franchise if he felt he would be too old to play the character and he was too exhausted after 8 months of filming Spectre (which included an on-set injury). Many fans have made suggestions about who could take on the role if Craig leaves, the list of names include Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Jackman, Tom Hardy, Damian Lewis, Henry Cavill, Michael Fassbender, Jamie Dornan, Sam Claflin Jamie Bell, Aidan Turner and Theo James.
Matt Smith is also being linked up to a potential role.
A popular news story, started by the blog Deadline, reports the Skyfall writer John Logan has been commissioned by Wilson & Broccoli to pen SPECTRE and Bond 25 as a two-parter.    Months later, this rumor was repudiated but no official announcement either way has been made. Logan did pen the script for SPECTRE and may be considered a front-runner for hemming the Bond 25 script.
(Warning spoilers for SPECTRE)
At the end of SPECTRE, instead of killing his acquaintance and nemesis Blofeld, Bond leaves him to be arrested and goes off with Madeleine Swann. Some have speculated that this opens up to the idea that Blofeld will return after escaping prison and murder Madeleine, who could possibly be Bond's new bride. Bond would perhaps want to get revenge and go after Blofeld. With some suggest this could be a potential remake to 1969's On Her Majesity's Secret Service. However, it maybe unlikely and Craig will possibly not return, meaning Waltz and Seydoux also not appear.
