Bond 25 will be the 25th film in the James Bond film series. Daniel Craig has not yet signed to return as James Bond in Bond 25.

BackgroundEdit

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.[1]

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: The Force Awakens.[2]

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures could be a new distributor of the Bond films it depends on how the deal works in order to out-bid Warner Bros and others, despite rumours.[3]

RumorsEdit

After the critical and box office success of Skyfall, and, critical success SPECTRE Hollywood went into a flurry of rumours for Bond’s next outing Bond 25.

Cast & Characters Edit

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, Hugh Jackman, Tom Hardy, Damian Lewis, Henry Cavill, Michael Fassbender, Jamie Dornan, Orlando Bloom, James McAvoy, Christian Bale, Jack Davenport, Dominic West, Nicolas Hoult, Dan Stevens, and Jack Huston.

It is also likely that Naomie Harris will reprise her role as Miss Moneypenny, Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q and Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner.

Christoph Waltz has stated that he would like to reprise his role as Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) two more times if Daniel Craig returns.

Jeffrey Wright could reprise his role as Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) from Casino Royale (2006 film), and Quantum of Solace.

CrewEdit

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. [4] [5] [6] 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.

Plot SpeculationEdit

(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.
