I have great news for you,  Barbel.  The Brasilian jungle  scenes will be shot in December just outside Edinburgh  ajb007/smile

ajb007/biggrin  Yes, that area is noted for its remarkable resemblance to the S. American rainforest.

Little known fact, but the word "Edinburgh" derives from the Olde Gaelic word for "Equatorial."

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

I know.  Just like Danmark looks like where I live.

Actually the rainfall here,  in Scotland and in the rainforest must be about the same.

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

This just leaked, Bond 25 will see Bond back behind the wheel of his most famous car...

"Producers of the highly successful and oft-copied James Bond films have broken their silence regarding the situation regarding the next James Bond film due out sometime in the future.  In their long-awaited press release they have revealed an interesting and exciting nugget of information that has Bond fans the world over slavering at the mouth in anticipation, and it relates to Bond's most famous car...
'Obviously fans want the same thing, film in, film out' a source from Eon (codenamed - Cauliflower) stated, 'And we like hashing over the same ridiculous formulas with elements borrowed from classics such as Austin Powers and The Dark Knight trilogy.  Bond 25 will feature more of the same and I can exclusively reveal that Bond will be seen driving a silver birch 1964 Aston Martin DB5.  This car will feature an interchangeable driving position allowing Bond to switch from left to right hand drive, and feature antiquated weaponry and gadgets which in spite of being obsolete for decades many fans will still speculate that he has had Q Branch fit them as a back hander because Bond is always in danger from his evil foster brother, especially when nipping round to Tesco Express for a bottle of plonk, a microwave lasagne and a copy of the Racing Post, and really needs these silly things.'
When pressed for more information our source was silenced by another Eon official (code-named: Moustachioed Cameo) who administered a mild sedative and dragged her away." 

So there you have it...

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

I really hope Daniel makes one more film.
I rewatched all of his films and I get that Spectre somewhat closes the series but they could easily make another one. Daniel really grew into the role and when each film ended I thought to myself "wow that's James Bond!" Until then it seems he is busy with tv shows and theater?

83

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

I loved Spectre to be honest, more than the other Craig films. Skyfall is second for me, followed by Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace. I would love Daniel Craig to come back and do a fifth movie, he at least would have done one more than Pierce Brosnan. He will be around 50 though, if everyone is OK with his increasing age.

Hi,  Wadsy and Danboy11.  It's nice of you to post,  but you might benefit from reading old posts to find the true purpose and tone of this topic.  ajb007/wink

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

Inside sources say the bear from The Revenant is cast in the next Bond movie. Is this the new henchman?
This comfirms the theory that EON wants a more intelectual heavy with more lines than mr Hinx.

I'm absolutely delighted by this news, Number24. Bears have long been overlooked in Hollywood. In an early black and white version of "Jungle Book", Baloo was actually played by an eastern lowland gorilla wearing heavy make-up, if you can believe it!

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

I think that bears should be used more often in films.  Have you noticed that NO bears were nominated for an Oscar - EVER?!?!?!?

This has to stop - NOW!

But credit to EON for casting a cat in Spectre.  A step in the right direction.

The cat in SP, Tiddles V, is actually the great-great-granddaughter of Tiddles who first appeared in FRWL. Her stunt double, Kitty Galore, had to eat the Siamese fighting fish since Tiddles preferred mice and ruined shot after shot refusing to eat the offered fish.

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

Unfortunately kitty galore's career came to a dramtic end when filming YOLT,  mistaking the piranhas for siamese fighting fish and having missed breakfast she was dragged in and eaten alive.

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

91

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

...which is why Tiddles herself (or possibly Tiddles II by this time) had to do the scene where Blofeld shoots Osato- frightened by the "bang" she jumped down from Blofeld's arm and using the trans-dimensional power known only to felines managed to disappear completely (see for yourself! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Haevrr4uAlw )

Since Kitty was made of sterner stuff, it had originally been planned that she would double for Tiddles- but the unfortunate piranha incident put paid to that idea.

Having lost two of their star purr-formers on YOLT, Eon's regular supplier Cats-Fur-Rent doubled their price when Cubby called them just before shooting OHMSS. He wasn't willing to pay this much...

"These are outrageous terms!"  https://s11.postimg.cc/7qgfaf467/AA_OLD_MAN.jpg

...so instead he contacted what he thought was a rival supplier, Pussies-For-Hire, whose number George Lazenby just happened to have on him. Realising quickly that he had made a terrible mistake, Cubby abashedly phoned Cats-Fur-Rent back and agreed to their terms.

Having watched Paddington over the weekend - I think he should be cast as the next Q.  Got quite a soft voice... for a bear.

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

Funny that you should mention this. Today I learnt that EON has made a deal with Disney to make an animated TV series for children from the James Bond universe.  ajb007/smile
Al the familiar chararcters will of cource be animals in this version. At first they planned on making Bond himself a rabbit, but later in the process it was decided to downplay 007 sexual conquests in this version. The debate about Bond's race continues. The same goes for M.
In early versions of the script 007's boss was drawn as a bald-headed eagle, but the Fleming Foundation balked at the idea of an American M.
A lot is up in the air at this point, but it seems certain that Q will be an owl and Pussy Galore will be a ....... cat.
Disney has asked this forum for input on what type of animal should portray the different Bond characters, can anyone help?

Good news for Craig fans!  DC will star in two more Bond movies: Snowfall (Fall 2018) followed by Seafall (Fall 2020)
In Snowfall Bond will globetrot between Norway,  Iceland and Canada.  The locations in Seafall will be the British channel coast,  Bangladesh and a yet undesided Island destinasjon.  In addition both movies will obviously be filmed in Turkey,  Italy and Switzerland.  The main Bond Girls will naturally be French brunettes.

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

Leaks say the villan of Snowfall will die in an avalanche . So far the writers have no idea how to kill the villan in Seafall.....

Methinks a waterfall?

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

That's brillant!
How on earth did you come up with that? You should be a screenwriter  ajb007/smile

Re: Exceedingly accurate and incredibly true rumours about Bond25

Or perhaps Waterfall should be a seperate Bond movie? Skyfall, Snowfall, Waterfall, Seafall.  There could even be Rainfall  ajb007/bond
The movies would be in falling, or decending order. .....

We can't speculate much about the plot of Waterfall, but it's safe to say the Bond girl will be a French brunette and Italy, Turkey and the Alps region will be among the locations  ajb007/biggrin
