James Bond 25 (2019)

THR JULY 24, 2017:
Next James Bond Movie Sets 2019 Release Date
Quote from: Aaron Couch & Borys Kit
Daniel Craig is not included in the announcement for the Nov. 8, 2019, film.
007 will be back in 2019.

The next installment in the James Bond franchise has set a release date of Nov. 8, 2019. This will be the 25th installment in the long-running series.

Daniel Craig, who has held a license to kill since first playing Bond in 2006's Casino Royale, has not been announced as being back as the British Secret Service agent, with EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer saying casting will be announced at a later date. A director has also not been revealed (Sam Mendes helmed the previous two installments).

The script is coming from Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who worked on Craig's four Bond films: Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.

While the date is set, many other things about Bond 25 remain unclear. MGM and EON have no U.S. studio partner on the movie and are in secret talks with several contenders after its four-picture deal with Sony expired with Spectre. Sources say Sony and Warner Bros. are vying for the rights.

It is also unclear whether Craig will return. The actor has spoken disdainfully about continuing as Bond in the past, but more recent rumors have painted a more softened tone from the actor. Among the stars who have been seen as waiting in the wings to take on the role should Craig retire include Idris Elba, Tim Hiddleston, Damien Lewis, Tom Hardy and The Hobbit actor Aidan Turner.

The franchise has been very successful with Craig in the starring role. 2012's Skyfall earned $1.1 billion, while 2015's Spectre earned $880 million.

Bond 25 will be produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. It is set to open the same day as an untitled Disney fairy tale movie.
Cervantes smiled Spain's chivalry away;
A single laugh demolished the right arm
Of his own country; — seldom since that day
Has Spain had heroes.

where did all the happy endings go?, where could all the good times be.

I would love to see Idris Elba as Bond.

He's too old.  He may be fine for the next one or two films, but film three and four may end in a Roger Moore situation.  I love Idris Elba, but I'd rather see someone like Ashley Walters or Ricky Whittle.  I think they could sustain it for longer, and it would be less likely to end after one or two films (and therefore seen as a failed experiment).

But I also think Craig should do just one more to finish the OHMSS/DAF storyline.  He should marry the girl from Spectre, Blowfeld should kill her, and the next film should be a revenge story.
