News on BOND 25


#4733

Jesper Christensen has been comparatively outspoken about his criticism of his earlier involvement. And he returned (for a bit.)

So Waltz could in all likelihood return…if it fits the script, that is. And that by now has been through various iterations without anybody officially suggesting Waltz would pick up his role again.
My impression was Waltz wasn’t happy with his part and didn’t expect to return. And if he was asked he‘d probably only do it if it suited his own preferences, his own idea of Blofeld.

The crucial thing: would Fukunaga be interested in bringing this Blofeld back? And if so, to what ends - would that script tempt Waltz enough to return? I‘m sceptic about both calls. But we should learn about it soon anyway.

Rehearsals have begun!


#4736

A stuntman’s back is probably okay…if a cast member who they’d not announced yet was in the shot, i’m sure it’d be a very different story.


#4737

Is that Craig’s stunt double? Cause it sure looks like the back of his head.


#4738

Well, not official per se, but close enough. Our first pic from Bond 25. Roll on! :sunglasses:


#4739

SPOILER: Someone falls!

:sunglasses:


#4740

Well thanks for that. No sense in seeing the movie now. :roll_eyes:


#4741

I know right! It’s like knowing the truth about Bruce Willis before seeing The Sixth Sense!:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#4742

What that he’s a horrible person (allegedly):roll_eyes:


#4743

Being grumpy after years in the studio system is probably a sign of sanity.


#4744

Joking aside, from now on, photos from on-set should go into the Spoilers thread, not this one.


#4746

So this is how it feels. It’s been so long…

#4748

It has been! I’ve forgotten that wonderful tingle one gets while awaiting that first bit of official news confirming locations, the cast and, best of all, the title. Just a few more weeks, I hope.


#4749

Anyone want to make bets on what’s announced next? Cast or title?


#4750

A delay!

Just kidding :smiley:


#4751

They must surely be out of disasters by now?!?!


#4752

Cast - after the Oscars…


#4753

I predict the next big announcement will be the date of the press conference where they’ll announce everything else.


#4754

I was actually going to ask/suggest that journalists usually get advanced notice of a press conference the size of the kick off of a Bond film. Shouldn’t there be a hint of that already, or was that the “expect a conference sometime in the last two weeks of February?”
