Spectre just had a lot of small problems, like the cinematographer making it look like someone took a piss on all the snow in Austria. Snow shouldn't be yellow!

I think we both agreed that we would enjoy the film more without the urine tint, it detracts so much from the cinematography and makes no sense outside of the Mexico city and hot climate scenes.

Mexico City isn't as hot as you'd expect. But for the outside Moroccan scenes it actually makes a lot of sense. I'd expect London and Austria to have a blue tint.

Re: Next Bond after Craig: Rumours, etc

I might be barking completely up the wrong tree here, but I think that part of the lack of news or information is perhaps as a result of Spectre and the many leaks that occurred throughout pre-production, filming and then post. I mean there was so much secret information broadcasted onto the net, and it ultimately  showed Sony and EON to be very leaky ships indeed. It also killed some of the momentum that Spectre may have otherwise had. Perhaps this news blackout about Craig and Bond 25 is due to the fact that EON have plugged the leaks and are taking extra precaution to ensure that nothing gets out before they want it to. Taking this approach, it may very well be that Craig is a lock, and that a screenplay is well and truly in the works. Mind you I could be totally wrong  ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol

What do you mean????? Spring's a month away yet!!!! Or do you refer to the southern hemisphere summer? Anyway, I'd also expect news before (British) summer at the very least.

Re: Next Bond after Craig: Rumours, etc

I't understandable if Sony wants to avoid all the leaks they had about SPECTRE. But by this time they must know who's working on the script, and ideally they would have a director attached to the project. Why not publish that info?

Re: Next Bond after Craig: Rumours, etc

The Sony leaks put EON, Sony, and most harmfully, the production in a bad light. The reality is those emails were business as usual for most big Hollywood productions. The money people bitching about cost overruns, the folks  on the creative side defending the production...lots of personal attacks and pettiness not meant for public consumption. When this stuff gets out, the media jumps on it and films that that aren't even completed much less actually seen by anyone get slagged. I agree that EON, MGM, et al want no parts of that again.

I don't think we have any idea who is writing Bond 25 unless I have missed something.

Re: Next Bond after Craig: Rumours, etc

I could be wrong, but I was under the impression that Logan was contracted for Bond 25. However things could have changed

3,293

Re: Next Bond after Craig: Rumours, etc

Logan is probably involved, but has a Bond movie ever been written by only one screenwriter?
Besides, why not make it public?

Sure. A number of Bond films have only one credited screenwriter, but not since TND. Tom Mankiewicz, I believe, is LALD's only screenwriter.

Re: Next Bond after Craig: Rumours, etc

Apparently they have had their share of uncredited writers over the years also. I always thought it was a huge missed opportunity that EON never used John Milius. Milius and Bond (well not Roger Moore Bond) would have been a perfect match. It's unfortunate that he has had so many serious health issues in the last decade or so, he could have really been a fantastic addition to the Craig Bonds, which would have been right up his alley.

I got the impression he was dropped for Bond 25 because of the script he and Mendes turned in on Spectre.

Can't remember where I read that.

They wouldn't be dropped because of Spectre since Purvis & Wade were came back after Die Another Day. Then they butchered Casino Royale, and they've still been welcomed back. Spectre's script did steal from Austin Powers, but it's still not the worst.

Was it Amy Pascal or Barbara who called Logan a "fraud" in those leaked emails? I'm pretty sure he's gone.

A fraud? That's interesting. Pretty strong language from the producers. Can you elaborate on this?

My impression is that it wasn't that the script was bad as much as concepts such as making M a traitor undermined the franchise (at least in the view of the people that mattered).

EON/MGM will tolerate mediocrity but they won't tolerate anything that they think threatens the money machine.
