We envision a future in which Edgar Wright, David Mackenzie, Alex Garland, and others directly direct 007.
News from Danny Boyle's departure from the nameless Bond 25 has sent every corner of the internet into unbridled speculation. Deadline reports that producers Babara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson are eager to make their release date on November 8, 2019, but to get that done, a new director must be mentioned quickly. The current state of the James Bond franchise is on the move and we want to take advantage of its mysterious future.
Many names have been skipped as possible replacement directors. They all have the potential to radically change the 007 formula, and while some are more attractive / curious than others, the ability to consider every possible vision is too tempting to pass. From Casino generously to Ghost, Daniel Craig saw his part of the adventure driven by the author. Boyle suggested that this cinematic strategy would continue, and the names that are whispered in the city reinforce Bond's artistic background.
There are already two scripts in development for this Bond 25: one out John Hodge based on an idea from Boyle and one of 007 regulars Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Assuming that Broccoli and Wilson stay with one of them, one of the drivers mentioned below could easily take the rescue. That possibility requires that a filmmaker is willing to make a script that is not encouraged under their guidance, and most probably gets out of the run, because they normally do not play balls that way.
Hey, that's not nice. We are here to have fun. Let's open our arms for the Christmas Future of Ghost Bond from James Bond and look at what these different directors could bring into the franchise. Which buddies would they throw next to Craig (again, when they will make November 8, will Daniel stay in the tuxedo)? Who will be their DP? What kind of a villain would their bond push against each other?
He is the director who most attenuates us. No doubt that if he would bring his confidant Baby driver the machining team of Jonathan Amos and Paul Machliss in the procedure Bond 25 would have a spicy, infectious beat. While he transfers them, Wright may as well put Bill Pope behind the camera. Use the eye that shot Dark man, The Matrix Trilogy, Jungle Book, as Wright's previous three films guarantee an aesthetic style steeped in genre.
The desire to find a place for Simon Pegg is strong, but I think we should let him go. Sorry size. Pegg already has his Q-part in the Mission Impossible franchise, and we do not have to muddy these waters. On the other hand, Nick Frost may have a place in this universe if he is brought against the type. Imagine a scuzzy, hard Nick Frost. Think of the miserable nature of Mr. Wins and Mr. Kidd in Diamonds are forever mixed with the comical grin of Golden Eyes Alan Cumming.
Guys, this is never going to happen. We do not want it either. We have already received his James Bond as Ethan Hunt Mission: Impossibles – Rogue Nation and Fallout. He could easily make a kickass movie, but we'd rather see him as one M: I Ilsa Faust trilogy. Yet the idea of Tom Cruise as a pussycat-ticking maniacal arch enemy is attractive.
Deadline claims that Valée has already been approached by the Bond 25 producers, and he looks more like a steady game than Wright of McQuarrie. There is nothing in his filmography that clearly says, "Yes, this is the man for Bond." The same thing could have been said about Sam Mendes. What Valée brings is a skill to break faithful emotional destruction through melodrama. Valée would drag his James Bond to the absolute depths of his morality as he did for his characters Big Little Lies, Demolition, Wild, and Dallas Buyers Club.
Who would he cast against Craig? Bond villain is too much a boys club. With the exception of the occasional accomplice for 007 to heal through sex, the ladies must still rise to the evil supremacy. Valée should throw Nicole Kidman opposite Bond at the baccarat table. It may even be a good idea that she eventually ends the MI-6 membership of Bond.
Yes. Done. Let's pack this up. We need Mackenzie for Bond 25, because that must mean Chris Pine as the next big bad guy. I know I just said that we would be totally cool if Nicole Kidman destroyed James in the next film, but, who would not let Daniel Craig show a mano with the personification of American charm?
Just think about it. Pine as an even more dangerous Mark Zuckerberg-type, jet-setting and collusion with Russians. Ben Foster is his reliable piece of beef. Of course we work from the script of Hodge, Wade or Purvis, but Mackenzie would also come Hell or high water screenwriter Taylor Sheridan to set up some of the more hateful dialogue.
Yann, together with his DP Tat Radcliffe, could easily make the most grittiest and shaky Bond Quantum of Solace. In Top Boy and & 71; 71, the duo explored the hell of the urban environment. Their upcoming White Boy Rick seems to follow. Bond has had a good dose of street war, but it can be fun to tap the budget to the essentials and see what 007 could do without its usual Hollywood theater.
Demange must withdraw Bond's license to (again) kill and keep his passport. Skyfall We saw 007 shooting through the moors, but I'm still waiting for a Bond movie that exists exclusively in the United Kingdom. Outside the Secret Service of Her Majesty.
This is pure fantasy. No chance in hell. Priscilla Page was the first person I saw to tweet this opportunity and once I heard that it could not be unheard of.
I do not know he would ever want this, but I would see the shit from a James Bond movie directed by Alex Garland

Babara Broccoli would probably look five minutes Ex Machina or Annihilation and disable it. They are not screaming Casino Royal, Ghost, or one of the previous 24 films in the franchise. They whisper. They hum. They grumble.
James Bond of Alex Garland would take over the doubt of himself Skyfall and stretch it into a melancholic character exploration. Yes, there would be bad guys to extinguish (most likely in the form of Oscar Isaac and Karl Urban), but their death would come at a conscious and methodical pace. All this time, a score by Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury would be correct.
