SPECTRE (Bond 24) (2015, D: Mendes) S: Craig, Waltz, Bellucci, Fiennes, Bautista

Nice to know they already have a target window for the followup to Skyfall. Had no idea Craig could opt out of it though. I doubt he will at this point.

Bond 24 lined up for 2014

Skyfall, the 23rd Bond movie, arrives this year, with a trailer not far away. Bond 24? It's already been confirmed for 2014...
Published on Apr 26, 2012

With news that the first trailer for the 23rd James Bond movie, Skyfall, is coming next month, Sony has also taken the opportunity to confirm that the 24th movie wonít be too far away. The gap between Quantum Of Solace and Skyfall was four years, mainly due to the financial instabilities of MGM. With such issues out the way, the plan is to get the franchise back on a two year schedule, it seems.

As such, the studio is saying that the 24th James Bond movie will arrive toward the end of 2014.

This is where it gets interesting, though. Daniel Craig signed up to play the role of James Bond three times, with an option for first refusal of a fourth movie. Skyfall therefore marks the last 007 film he's strictly contracted to do.

Thus, if he doesnít want to do Bond 24, he doesnít have to, but he gets first dibs. Sony is unlikely to want to turn around a reboot of Bond in two years, so our guess is that Craig may well sign up for Bond 24. And then? Well, donít wager against him retiring his tuxedo after that...

I'd want him to stay on. See Bond "mature" into his position and all that.

I hope Craig sticks with it. Otherwise, I'd like to see Fassbender get a crack at it.

Really? The article is implying it would be a reboot if they change the actor despite around 50 years of the transition happening seamlessly? I know Casino Royale was the reboot, but that doesn't mean they'll have to start from scratch with a new guy.

I refuse to think of Fassbender as Bond. Quite frankly, my head couldn't handle that much awesomeness.

While watching First Class I couldn't not picture him as Bond.

No. Didn't feel like a Bond movie to me. Felt like a Borne wannabe.

I believe Craig has said he'll keep making them until he can't, so this is great news to me.

What's your idea of a "fun" Bond movie?

Gadgets, Q, one-liners, over the top action. Pretty much what most other Bond movies have had for the past few decades.

Re: Bond 24 (2014)

The one thing I am glad is the lack of cheese or certain humor in these films. That aspect just doesn't hold up in today's world. The Connery ones rock cuz of the era but the later it goes in the worse it gets in trying to hold it well. I want to see a more "realistic" Bond. Craig has brought it. I want more Craig.

You mean, all of the things that made Brosnan's films the worst in the series?

I truly hope they never go back to that formula. Bond should be taken a little more seriously than that.

all that stuff resinrats brought is what made it horribly formulaic.

I agree. I love the current formula and would love to see Craig in the role for a few more movies.

Re: Bond 24 (2014)

People who complain that Craig's version of Bond is nothing like Fleming's Bond have an absolutely valid point. Craig's Bond is no cultured, upper class officer. I can see why that would rankle a purist- that and the fact that everyone likes to claim just the opposite, that he is just like how Fleming wrote the character.

Personally, at this point, I just don't care. The Brosnan films hammered home to me how much I hate seeing just another new handsome face plugged into the old formula. Craig really is playing more of a version of Bourne than Bond, but if that's what it takes to inject some electricity into these old tropes, by all means, keep doing it a few more times at least.

And last I heard we are getting Q this time around, and I would assume some gadgets with him. He won't be anything like Desmond L, but then for this take, I wouldn't want him to be.

Re: Bond 24 (2014)

I said years ago that Christian Bale would make a great Bond when he's older. By then, he will be around the right age.

He would even get to do his real British accent for a change.

Re: Bond 24 (2014)

Bale doesn't sound posh enough to play Bond. There's no reason why the character can't be posh and violent - in much the manner Connery played him. I don't think that kind of interpretation would sit too uneasily with the current hightened-reality version which is currently being explored. Edris Elba for me as the next Bond. If you've not see it yet you owe it to yourselves to watch him in the series Luther - wonderful stuff!

Good Lord, can you imagine Fassbender as Bond? Too much epicness for me.

Re: Bond 24 (2014)

Craig is my least favorite bond.

#1 Roger Moore
#2 Pierce Brosnan
#3 George Lazenby
#4 Sean Connery
#5 Timothy Dalton
#6 David Niven
#7 Daniel Craig

Maybe flip flop 5 & 6
