In this episode Griffin (@griffschiller) and Brody (@brodyserravalli) discuss the following:

Tomorrow Never Lies
* Cary Fukunaga is announced as the new director of #Bond25
* After the unexpected departure of director Danny Boyle from Bond 25, EON and co. have been on the hunt for a replacement and it seems as though they’ve finally found one
* Earlier today, Sept. 20th, they put out an official statement regarding who will be directing the next Bond film. The statement says the following:
* Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig announced today that #Bond25 will begin filming at Pinewood Studios on 4 March 2019 under the helm of director, Cary Joji Fukunaga with a worldwide release date of 14 February 2020. “We are delighted to be working with Cary. His versatility and innovation make him an excellent choice for our next James Bond adventure," said Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
* So it seems the True Detective Season 1 and Beasts of No Nation Director Cary Fukunaga will be taking over for Danny Boyle and using the script penned by Neil Purvis and Robert Wade, a story we’ll get to in a moment.
* Thoughts on this choice and what it could possibly mean for Bond 25?
* Neil Purvis and Robert Wade will be taking over screenwriting duties for John Hodge
* Following the departure of Danny Boyle from the next Bond installment, John Hodge exited the project as screenwriter.
* Apparently Hodge’s treatment was a re-tooling of the original Purvis & Wade script that had already been approved by Broccoli and Wilson prior to Boyle and Hodge coming onto the project
* Now according to Baz Bamigboye from The Daily Mail and the James Bond news site, Purvis & Wade will be returning to Bond 25.
* The writing duo are supposedly touching up the script with changes that reflect the wishes of the producers and Daniel Craig
* According to Bamigboye, “There’s a keenness for women to be more front-and-centre in Bond 25…"
* What do we make of all this and now hearing that Hodge’s script was a retooling of Purvis & Wade’s does that make us more confident in the overall story they are going for?
* Dave Bautista wants back into the Bond franchise
* The last we saw of Dave Bautista’s henchmen Mr. Hinx in Spectre, he was getting pulled off a speeding train in Morocco, presumed to be killed, thought many fans speculated it might not be the end for the character.
* Well, it turns out Dave Bautista himself also believes in the character’s survival.
* During the press tour for his latest film "Final Score”, which coincidentally also stars former Bond Pierce Brosnan, Bautista commented on the potential return of Mr. Hinx in Bond 25 saying the following:
* "We had hopes, and…they had mentioned it. But yeah still have kinda hopes…I hear it’s been pushed, so maybe there’s a…chance"
* He then went on to say, "Yeah I want to be in Bond 25. I’ve been very open and political about it. Like I’ve pursued this role. I would love to revive Hinx in Bond 25. I wanna be a part of it because it’s a historical film. There’s a huge part of me that wants the bragging rights of being that henchman who came back twice, because there hasn’t been many. And I wanna be that guy, I wanna be historical, y’know."
* With Richard Kiel’s Jaws being the only Bond henchman thus far to return in the franchise, playing a part in both The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, Bautista would certainly be making Bond history.
* Thoughts on the return of Mr. Hinx in Bond 25 and what are the chances the character ACTUALLY...
