Bond 25 director says he wants to explore Swann character

Cary Joji Fukunaga, director 2.0 for Bond 25

Bond 25 director Cary Fukunaga, in an interview with Japanese outlet Cinema Today, said he wants to explore the character of Madeline Swann.

According to a translation of the interview, the director said “I just knew a little about her” in SPECTRE “and I thought I had something more to say about her.”

Lea Seydoux played Swann in the 2015 007 film. She initially dislikes Bond but rides off with him at the end of the movie. Seydoux is reprising the role in Bond 25.

Fukunaga also told Cinema Today he met with Eon Productions boss Barbara Broccoli in 2017 about the film. Danny Boyle was hired in 2018 to helm the movie. Fukunaga was then hired after Boyle departed over “creative differences.”

The director said in the interview he’s been working on Bond 25’s story “120 percent” since September.

“It’s a very hard job,” he told the Japanese outlet. “It’s an important piece for this franchise, and especially Daniel Craig, and people’s expectations because it’s five years since the previous release.”
