Tomorrow Never Lies
* Bond 25 Update
* https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/films/1051651/James-Bond-25-director-Cary-Fukunaga-Casino-Royale-Daniel-Craig-Spectre
* It’s only a matter of months before cameras begin rolling on Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond and as expected we are starting to get little nuggets of information along the way.
* When Director Danny Boyle was originally attached to the project, it was looking more and more as if Bond 25 would be a standalone not acknowledging the events of the Craig era and focusing on a self contained narrative.
* Speaking with Inquirer.net, current Bond 25 Director Cary Fukunaga spoke a bit about how he plans to continue and conclude the journey Bond began back in Casino Royale saying the following:
* “In terms of what I can bring to change the character, Bond is on a character arc that started with Casino Royale, and I will be carrying that on.
* “There will be changes, I am sure. As in any story, a character has to change in order [to have] a narrative.”
* And that’s not ALL we got, Fukunaga even teased his progress on planning the film’s action set pieces saying
* “A little bit, but not all yet."
* “I am trying to get all the narrative stuff sorted out and have a good story to tell."
* Fukunaga then went on to promise fans that there will definitely be elements of the 007 formula involved saying:
* “Yeah, there will be the things in the Bond-verse that you have come to expect,” he promised. “I can’t say too much, though.”
* The director also spoke a bit on working with Daniel Craig:
* “Daniel is an incredible actor. Outside of Bond, I have been a fan for years of his work. For me, he was the best part of Road to Perdition.
* “In his first Bond movie, Casino Royale, he brought an incredible amount of vulnerability and humanity to the character, which was a big shift from Pierce Brosnan’s run."
* Months ago it was heavily rumored that Christophe Waltz would not be reprising his role as Blofeld in 25 and to this Fukunaga replied with:
* “Who is saying those rumours? We haven’t finished the screenplay, so there is no way that anyone could know that.
* "If there is space for [Blofeld] in the story, I would absolutely want [him] there. But I don’t know yet what it’s going to be."
* As of now Bond 25 is still slated to release February 14th, 2020
* Richard Madden the next Bond?

* Game of Thrones alum and star of the new hit series The Bodyguard has been giving Bond bookies something to talk about recently as he’s become one of the odds on favorites to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond
* Now while as of today Nov. 30th, Madden was recently overtaken by Tom Hiddleston, who’s odds are currently 5-4 compared to Madden’s 2-1, during an interview with GQ the actor addressed the Bond rumors saying the following:
* “My first reaction,” says Madden, “is always the same reaction, which is the papers make up a story on a Sunday so they can discredit that story on the Monday so they can sell papers on both days.”
* “...this is what happens with all these shows, like Tom Hiddleston in The Night...
