Bond26 in 2025 and 007 to be "reinvented" says Babs Broccoli
I had a look and I couldn't see a thread about what I thought was quite a big update for Bond fans.
Deadline got the scoop
My guess is reinventing Bond must mean going younger. Is it a coincidence we have that new video game coming out from the makers of Hitman? I think they need the audience to be a younger demographic for the franchise and video game tie ins and anything else for the youth market will be exploited with a younger Bond who begins as a Lt in the Royal Navy and somehow ends up at MI6.
I think this means all the candidates for the next Bond are wrong. It's someone who at the moment is probably in their early twenties. Lets not forget the first time Dalton was asked after Connery he was in his twenties and so was Henry Cavill. I think whomever they pick will still have that mix of TV and films experience but they have not had leading roles in major pics. Both Connery and Craig had those backgrounds, and you could argue Dalton was not a big name when he was picked.
With Bond26 as early as 2025, it looks like we'll have had ten years and only two Bond films. As much as I would like Martin Campbell to direct it, he is 78, one can only hope he is still able. Looking at IMDb he's certainly busy.
