Bond 25 (Casting New Bond)

Post by WyldeMan on 5/19/2016, 10:52 am

According to a report from The Daily Mail, actor Daniel Craig has officially let MGM know that he's done playing James Bond, turning down an offer of £68 million ($99 million US) to return to the franchise for two more installments.  Aside from the $99 million, the deal also included endorsements and profit sharing as a producer.   Some estimates speculate that in reality, Craig is walking away from a figure closer to $175 million US. 

In related news, this reports suspiciously coincides with bookmakers around the world no longer accepting bets on whether Tom Hiddleston will succeed Craig as 007.  There were even sightings of Hiddleston meeting with Spectre director Sam Mendes and executive producer Barbara Broccoli.  Could an announcement be imminent?

Sorry Tom, not here for you as Bond.


Hope they go with Idris or Damien Lewis instead.

Craig has been telling ANY and EVERYone within spitting distance that he was done.


Since last year.

To pass up on $175 million, he must have really hated Bond.

Daniel Craig seems like a miserable jackass.

His career outside Bond wasn't exactly setting the world on fire.

Should stayed, did two more and collected that fat check.

That franchise made him relevant, yet he kept shitting on it.

Oh his way out the door.

Outside of Bond I'd only ever known him from Layer Cake and being a colossal asshole from all reports.

I think you're right on this, he's just going to fade away.

Craig was in Defiance with Liev and Jamie Bell, upstaged by both.

He's not a bad actor, but nothing exceptional.

Few yrs back, he did a play with Hugh Jackman on Broadway.

Who do you think was the main draw, putting asses in the seats?

His wife Rachel can acts rings around him.

He'll still work, but Bond will be the watershed moment of his career.

I enjoyed him in
fincher's verion of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Actually it's the only thing of his I've really enjoyed.

Can't see Tom as Bond though.

Idris would be rad. Damien Lewis is an interesting choice. Hadn't thought of him before.

I prefer the original Dragon Tattoo. I haven't been able to repeat view a Fincher film since Fight Club.

I always thought Strike Back's Phillip Winchester would make a good Bond, he's a studly Brit with charm and swagger and very capable of playing the action hero. Though I've never once heard anybody but me say his name for Bond, so it was never even a remote possibility.

A horror film he co-starred with Rachel and Naomi Watts.

Where Daniel and her began an affair, then dumped their significant others.

Rachel was with Darren Aronofsky at the time.

Daniel dumped his longtime GF, who I think tried to sue him.

I knew about none of that, including that movie. He was never a draw for me yet I like both those women mentioned.

Good to know I'm not the only one who thought he'd be good. Too bad he just signed his career away to NBC on yet another Dick Wolf Chicago spin-off which will keep Winchester in court for 22 episodes a year plus multiple forced crossovers with the other Chicago shows; Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Chicago Med and whatever other Chicago job Wolf exploits next season.

Batista's wife, Sarah Jade was crowned "Miss Pole Dance America" this past weekend in Nashville.

Clearly she's the talented one in that relationship.

This is the kind of stuff Craig wants to make after passing on that huge Bond contract? HAHAHAHAHAHA

Daniel Craig and Katherine Heigl are said to be finalizing deals to join Steven Soderbergh’s heist film Logan Lucky about brothers who plan a crime during a NASCAR race in Charlotte.

Who the fuck doesn't want to be James Bond? He's an idiot! I hope the next person really appreciates and loves the character. What sucks is that I liked Daniel as Bond. You can blame the movies but it's all the script, he plays the character really well.

"Bond oh certainly not. Katherine Heigl and NASCAR absolutely"

What is going on in that dude's head? It's like he doesn't have a manager or an agent or a wife who cares what he's doing, lol.

Jamie Bell's name is now suddenly popping up as a candidate for the next Bond. Shocked

Jamie Bell is a good actor but not right for Bond and a little young.

Frankly I'm surprised they aren't going after Hardy and Fassbender.

I think if they're going to look at someone young like Jamie, they should consider Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Jack O'Connell or Nicholas Hoult and put some young blood in this stale franchise.

Mendes Done Directing Bond 
The next James Bond film will probably have to find both a new leading man and a director.

“It was an incredible adventure, I loved every second of it,” “Skyfall” and “Spectre” director Sam Mendes (“American Beauty”) said of his recent half-decade with the franchise. “But I think it’s time for somebody else.”

“I’m a storyteller. And at the end of the day, I want to make stories with new characters,” he explained to a Welsh audience on Saturday, according to the Associated Press.

Mendes told those at the Hay Festival of literature in Wales that he hopes the next Bond director comes from “an unexpected direction,” kind of like he did.

The director already had a celebrated career before he took on the huge task of steering the 007 franchise. He broke out in 1999 with “American Beauty,” his directorial debut. The film, which starred Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening, was a smash hit, grossing more than $356 million worldwide and garnering five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director for Mendes.

He followed that up with 2002’s gangster drama, “Road to Perdition,” in which Tom Hanks and Paul Newman starred opposite a then-little-known British actor named Daniel Craig. The movies “Jarhead,” “Revolutionary Road” and “Away We Go” followed before Mendes was tapped for Bond.

His first outing behind the camera for 007, 2012’s “Skyfall,” received wide critical acclaim, five Oscar nominations and two wins, including a statuette for Adele’s theme song. The movie grossed $1.1 billion worldwide. Three years later, “Spectre” banked another $881 million globally and won an Academy Award for Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes’ original song.

And as far as who should replace Bond himself — Daniel Craig, as of late — as the future face of the franchise, Mendes said there’s no point in fans trying to lobby via the Internet.

“It’s not a democracy … [executive producer] Barbara Broccoli decides who is going to be the next Bond, end of story,” he said.

Tom Hiddleston has been a fan-favourite choice to play James Bond for a while now, but it was his performance in BBC/AMC series The Night Manager which made most people sit up and pay attention to what a great 007 he could be. So, when a report surfaced indicating that the British actor is in "advanced talks" to take over from Daniel Craig, it was like all of our wishes had finally come true. 

Unfortunately, the Thor: Ragnarok star put a bit of a dampner on the prospect of him being the next Bond during an appearance at Wizard World Philadelphia this weekend by revealing the following. "I'm sorry to disappoint you everybody.  I don't think that announcement is coming. But I'm very gratified to hear the enthusiasm. There's not much that I can say that I haven't already said, but I know... your guess is as good as mine to be honest." So, it looks like those talks haven't happened...or have they?
