‘James Bond 25’ Release Date, News and Update: Movie Eyes Croatia As Location, But No Certainty On Who Will Play Bond
The "James Bond 25" movie is eyeing Croatia as its next location when it starts filming this year. It has been more than a year since the last Bond movie "Spectre" was shown in theaters, and the spy movie makers are bent on starting filming even if the identity of the lead star is still uncertain.
There is much uncertainty if current James Bond Daniel Craig would still star as the English spy in the new "James Bond 25" film. It could, however, work both ways since Sony and MGM want Craig back even for one last movie. Craig earlier said he would rather have his wrists slashed than do another movie as James Bond.
"They say that shit sticks, and that definitely stuck. It was the day after filming [stopped on Spectre]. I'd been away from home for a year. Boo-hoo. It's a good gig. I enjoy it," Craig said. "Everyone's a bit tired. As far as I'm concerned, I've got the best job in the world. I'll keep doing it as long as I still get a kick out of it. If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly," he added.
Eon Productions is said to be negotiating the terms for the next location of "James Bond 25", according to Movie Web. This was confirmed by Dubrovnik City mayor during a press conference for the movie "Robin Hood: Origins".
Several names are being floated around as to who will play 007 in "James Bond 25". Among the actors being eyed as the new Bond are Aidan Turner, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba and Michale Fassbender.
Craig has become the second actor in the history of the franchise to have played James Bond. His fans are, however, not fully satisfied with "Spectre" so they want to see him one last time in "James Bond 25", according to Yahoo.
For now, fans have to be satisfied knowing that a location has somehow been chosen for the filming of "James Bond 25" this year. However, they have to bear with the suspense when it comes to who will play the lead role, and who will direct the movie, as Sam Mendes is definitely out.
