Scruffybobby -> Bond 24 and 25 (28/10/2012 5:12:19 PM)

A 2 parter? Would be a bit of a shake up, would that also involve a back to back production do you think? Could be a way to get another couple of films out of DC in a short time before he gets a bit too long in the tooth




3wonders -> (28/10/2012 5:47:17 PM)

Please, no more Daniel Craig attempts at Roger Moore humour. And stop already with the 'wanting revenge on M' or 'good agents gone bad' plots from the Brosnan era with Goldeneye and The World is Not Enough.

There's no point in brilliantly reinventing the franchise with Casino Royale, if ur just going to hark backwards again with nostalgis as Skyfall. Please, please, don't return to the old formula - it's so had it's day.




Stuwaugh22 -> (28/10/2012 6:11:56 PM)

Nolan at the helm please! He wants to do a Bond movie and anyone who has seen his films, particularly Inception, would know he would do a great job. I like that it's a two parter, maybe introduce his wife in the first and kill her in the second? Having said that we've already had the 'broken man' plot after Vesper's death, might be repetitive but could work if handled rightly, which Nolan would do I think.




Osric -> RE: (28/10/2012 7:09:47 PM)

Oh fuck Nolan. For god's sake, does nobody know any other directors anymore?




billypunk -> (28/10/2012 7:46:31 PM)

Nolan as director would be cool but I would be more excited to see Danny Boyle(he must be favourite after the olympics), Joe Wright(Hanna was awesome) or maybe even Paul Greengrass offered the chance.




Quentin Black -> RE: John Logan Writing Bond 24 & 25 (28/10/2012 9:01:52 PM)

Skyfall is one of the best Bond films and a definite step in the right direction for the franchise. Traditional Bond with much needed emotional and dramatic weight. It takes the franchise out of the shadow of the Bourne series while still delivering a Bond that you can believe in a post 911 world.

Danny Boyle, Joe Wright, Nicholas Winding Refn or David Fincher would all make fine candidates to direct the next two. Like Mendes, they're all artistic directors who would focus on the characters and drama while delivering stunning visuals to keep the action original and exciting.

Nolan would be more suited to "reinvent" the franchise after Daniel Craig leaves and they bring on someone new.

Looking forward to it.




edjones95 -> RE:RE (28/10/2012 9:06:18 PM)

@Osric Fincher to direct, I would fucking loved to see that or maybe Scorsese, that'd pretty awesome to, but mainly Fincher. Ooo or the Coens...




MonsterCat -> RE: John Logan Writing Bond 24 & 25 (28/10/2012 9:18:58 PM)

If Mendes isn't coming back I think it'll be cool to see Nicolas Winding Refn, Kim Jee Woon or David Slade come aboard.




Darth Marenghi -> RE: John Logan Writing Bond 24 & 25 (28/10/2012 9:32:00 PM)

Keep it British director-wise, I think - Danny Boyle, Matthew Vaughn or a return for Sam Mendes.




ClownPrince -> (28/10/2012 10:03:39 PM)

Duncan Jones and Cristophe Gans directing please. Not Christopher Nolan for the love of god.




ClownPrince -> (28/10/2012 10:09:33 PM)

Fincher maybe, not Refn, not Slade, definitely not the Coen's (as much as I love them, it just wouldn't work). Gareth Evans would be interesting as would Matthew Vaughn (If he doesn't drop out half way through) would be interesting. Hopefully they will try up the QUANTUM storyline so those two films don't look erroneous and the Craig era doesn't end with loose ties.




GALLYMOO -> Bond should take down Quantum for GOOD! (28/10/2012 10:52:24 PM)

Bring in an ultimate Blofeld'esque Villain for his 5th instalment....huge sets and Craig swinging down a rope in his Commander Attire....As for Directors....Perhaps Kenneth Branagh (he did wonders with THOR!), TOM HOOPER, STEVE McQueen or Danny Boyle....I'd like John McTiernan have a shot?




vad3r -> RE: Bond should take down Quantum for GOOD! (28/10/2012 10:59:25 PM)

Please God, no more. If you've seen one Bond film, you've seen them all.

Quatumn will likely be the baddies, and you will see these movies being a riff on the Connery flicks. Everything is set up now for them to follow the Connery mould.

Yes they're all so different, unique and unpredictable. I feel extremely satisfied after spending 90 minutes watching Bean...sorry, Bond. Whatever will they come up with next year? I'm getting wet just thinking of the possibilities.

No, they're not all different and unique, but your previous post was basically a sweeping generalization.

I mean, by your rationale if I've only seen Moonraker I shouldn't bother with the rest because: "Once you've seen one Bond film, you've seen them all".

DON'T FALL FOR IT MC!

Too late.

I wish I knew how to quit him.




vad3r -> RE: Bond should take down Quantum for GOOD! (28/10/2012 11:33:58 PM)

Feel free to wait in eager anticipation for Bond 24, 25, 38 and the big one, 57. And then do a marathon of all of them before Bond 58. I for one would rather watch new stuff.

You can't just quit true love.

Super. So why comment in a thread about Bond news? Why even look at Bond news?

Actually nevermind.

I love the idea that Bond stopping the Soviets from winning the Afghan War by using the opium trade in Afghanistan and Bond going on a revenge rampage to avenge his friend and his dead wife ARE THE SAME THING

Hey, have you seen the new episode of Community, guys?

Jeff and Britta flirt, Abed makes pop culture references and Annie does something cute!

IT'S SO DIFFERENT AND UNIQUE TO ALL THE OTHER EPISODES.

Community is a television comedy with no budget. Bond isn't. Your comparison is invalid.

Community has more creativity and uniqueness in its gag reels than Bond does in a movie.

Also, you've not watched all of Community. I've watched every Bond. How much content are you basing your synopsis on?

I responded to this in my previous post. And you've never seen a single episode of Community! I have watched every single Bond film before stating my opinion on the franchise. There's a difference here.




Rgirvan44 -> RE: Bond should take down Quantum for GOOD! (29/10/2012 12:36:20 AM)

I can't believe we are all doing this again.

You hate the franchise. Great. Go and be positve about something you do like.
