Broccoli: Bond 25 doesn’t have much in place beyond Craig

Eon boss Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig

Eon Productions boss Barbara Broccoli told RTE Entertainment that Bond 25 has its biggest piece in place, star Daniel Craig, but not much else beyond that.

“I’m very happy that he’s coming back,” Broccoli was quoted as saying. “So, to me, that’s the crucial thing. And we’re just looking on everything else.

“We don’t have too much in place, but we’ve got the main man in place, so that makes me very happy,” she said.

Broccoli didn’t comment much beyond that but added this:

“(W)e’ve got to find the director. We’re working on the script and we’ll see… Hopefully by the beginning of the year we’ll have more news on all those fronts.”

Eon and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer said in July that Bond 25 will have a U.S. release date of Nov. 8, 2019.

  1. OK. So according to this Blog’s information, Bond Producer Barbara Broccoli. She’s Happy that Bond 25 has Daniel Craig in Place to return as James Bond 007. So the real issue at Hand is Finding a Director to Direct it ? In Bond History we all Know Bond Directors in the past have Directed More than one film in the Franchise. Names like terence young. Guy Hamilton. Lewis Gilbert. and John Glen. Today we have Martin Campbell and Sam Mendes the Only two directors who have Made two films Between them. So if Eon Productions want to Move away from using the same directors over and over again. How about Changing things-up ? use a woman Director this time around, Susanne Bier Comes to my Mind. Great Director She did a Brilliant Job on BBC’S Mini-series ”the Night Manager” However, Thats Just my Opinion.
