Danny Boyle has more-or-less got the directing gig apparently.

Paddy Power never had odds for him so they must be pleased if true.

EDIT: No, I scanned through the odds and missed that Danny Boyle was 10/1. :unlucky:

I’m still unsure about Boyle. He’s supposed to be doing Bond right after he does a musical with Richard Curtis that he’s not even started.

Would be good if it was a low key Bond as they might be struggling to do anything else with it now!

Daniel Craig apparently finally confirmed his involvement in the 25th James Bond film at a charity auction last week. He isn't so sure Danny Boyle has got the directing gig officially yet though.

https://www.screendaily.com/news/daniel ... 62.article

Dua Lipa who has a kind of a guttural Adele-like singing voice has had the rumour machine cranking in her direction from her supposedly being the next Bond girl to supposedly being Coral's odds on pick to sing the theme a week and a half ago. Never saw any odds & I cry "What a load of old bull!" at her involvement. I think Barbara and Michael will force Danny Boyle (or whoever it is) to go mainland European for the next Bond girl but the person/act singing the theme will very likely be British even if Beyonce keeps getting rumoured for it.

I'll believe it when something is officially confirmed by Annapurna, MGM & EON. This whole affair is getting beyond tedious and the Friday 8th November 2019 release date is looking even more increasingly unlikely to be met. I think they overspent or there was a misuse of funds for "Spectre" as that did NOT look like a $300 million movie.

I really don’t think they’ve got enough time to make that release date. I’m sure Boyle is touted to make a Beatles inspired musical before then.

I also don’t think Dua Lipa is going to be a Bond girl!

Danny Boyle busy getting extras for free making his musical during June.

Now it's official that Danny Boyle is directing. Seems like it will have to be a fairly quick filming schedule as it's supposed to be out in October 2019 for the UK!

EDIT: Worst kept secret finally out as Daniel Craig is returning for a fifth and possibly last film as James Bond.

The next James Bond villain could be... Angelina Jolie or Helena Bonham Carter!?

They have learnt nothing from "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" or "The World Is Not Enough".

Pierce Brosnan has endorsed Tom Hardy as his choice to be the next James Bond.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/0 ... ames-bond/

Not much news about who will be in the 25th movie. Apparently Mark Strong might be though with some Italian personal trainer who deleted an Instagram post suggesting it might happen.

https://www.flickeringmyth.com/2018/06/ ... s-bond-25/

Am getting antsy as to who will sing the theme song. One assumes no one will put out odds so close to filming in case they get nobbled or almost nobbled like William Hill did when it came to choosing between Sam Smith or Radiohead.

Rumours abound that Years & Years (who heard it from Ben Whishaw!) believe that Dua Lipa has it and will be the one to sing the next James Bond theme.

https://www.elitedaily.com/p/dua-lipa-m ... ow-9807132

I like the gal but I don't think she can sing that well. She 'talk sings' like Lily Allen.

Couldn't pick out Years & Years in a police lin-up apart from that the singer has a really weedy singing voice that doesn't seemingly suit a James Bond theme at all. The best comparison I could think of is Scissor Sisters's "Land of a Thousand Words".

The rumours are hot that Barbara & Michael are favouring Idris Elba but this is friend-of-a-friend stuff.

https://twitter.com/ErikDavis/status/10 ... 7242734592

Will suggest the feelers are being put out as to who the public will act favourably towards. Daniel Craig was never an obvious choice back in 2005.

The likes of Talksport aren't reporting the Idris Elba rumour...they're reporting Jonathan Pryce making a joke instead.

https://uk.news.yahoo.com/jonathan-pryc ... 11183.html

It kind of figures. *COUGH* Racists *COUGH*

EDIT: They're still casting the female villain & henchman for "Bond 25"!? OMG!!

It appears that the Idris Elba story was made up! No idea how a made up story ended under in the Daily Star!

Idris Elba is playing along on Twitter though.

Obviously they don't want to kill Danel Craig's chill as well as any hype for the 25th movie by announcing his replacement before they even film this one but this long dragged out process is incredibly tedious...what will happen first!? Donald Trump gets impeached or someone will get announced as Daniel Craig's replacement as James Bond?
