Re: Danny Boyle has left Bond25 over 'creative differences'

Possibly it's because of some new news? http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/james- … taghmaoui/

It was either that.....or the priesthood

The Craig is back-thread has a link to the original The Local article, but for some reason there was little discussion. A Russian or an Arab villain seem to be over-used, but a Russian doesn't have to be an extreme nationalist or secret agent and an Arab doesn't have to be a jihadist. I don't think Hodge went in such an obvious direction.

Re: Danny Boyle has left Bond25 over 'creative differences'

The thread got closed because of a few clowns spouting their nonsensical opinions, not because of lack of news, or the state of production. And, of course, as soon as it closed, the above discussion-worthy news came in...

Re: Danny Boyle has left Bond25 over 'creative differences'

My comments about MI6community were ment to be a little bit funny. I think what Said Taghmaui said was very interesting and worthy of some discussion even if he doesn't get cast.

"clowns spouting their nonsensical opinions "  ajb007/lol  one of the
Reasons, I no longer even visit the MI6 Forum.  Too many

Agreed, it's quite interesting news, even if I haven't seen the actor's work. Surprised there wasn't more discussion about it on the forums. Which way do they go? Russian or Middle Eastern? They could always pull a TLD, and have both. I'm excited for any of those outcomes, but most of all, I'd love a return to the Cold War-style Bond film again.

Things got out of hand, it will be back in a few days.

In what way?

Re: Danny Boyle has left Bond25 over 'creative differences'

The casting call from when Boyle was still the director was for a Russian villan. Later he must have changed it to be an Arab character and cast Said Taghmaui. Now EON are uncertain if they want to stay with Taghmaui or change the character back to being a Russian, possibly played by Polish Thomasz Kot or an actor from Finland.
Does that sound reasonable?

I think that the big questions on everyone's minds right now is who the director is going to be, will the release date be delayed, and is the Hodge script w/ rewrites the script? Once EON officially makes an announcement I think there will be much more interest regarding casting, etc and what the plot is.

Re: Danny Boyle has left Bond25 over 'creative differences'

I still think this is interesting. If they og for an Arab villan, will the female Russian character change nationality too? Getting an Arab woman to play a Bond girl might be difficult, even though Lebanon and Saudi Arabia offer very different work conditions for actresses.
