File this under “S” for sketchy, but Baz Bamigboye, who used to be the go-to U.K. reporter for James Bond scoops, appeared to say on Twitter that Bond 25 is a “long, long way off.”

Bamigboye, who writes for the Daily Mail, was specifically asked, “Is it dead?” referring to Bond news. That’s when the writer made his “long, long way off” response, presumably referring to Bond 25.

Bamigboye generated a number of scoops about Skyfall and SPECTRE, such as how Neal Purvis and Robert Wade were summoned to rewrite SPECTRE’s script in mid-2014. That was the first major tipoff that the movie had major script issues.

However, a major caveat: Bamigboye hasn’t been on the Bond beat since 2014. He’s been writing about other entertainment topics. Caveat No. 2: “long, long way off” is vague. 2019? 2020? 2022?

Still, for what it’s worth, you can view the exchange on Twitter here.
