They convinced Daniel Craig to go back to the well one more time for Bond 25.
The movie will come out November 8, 2019. They just need a title, some other stars, some exotic locations, some ridiculously named ladies, perhaps a silly gadget or two, and a plot. I wonder if they might take on some geopolitical changes since Casino Royale came out: Brexit, the decline of the US as a global ally, the resurgence of Russia as an enemy. Or they might keep on cheekily appropriating and name-checking high points in the series, like having a character named “Blofeld”, without worrying too much about how they fit into the story.
Casino Royale is one of my favorite Bond movies, and the other Craig movies were at least worth watching, though I felt they had gone further downhill with each successive new movie. If they change anything for Bond 25, I hope they give Bond something more to do than 1) go to new place, 2) survive whatever is thrown at him 3) repeat.
Edit: title and new year added to thread title.
Edit 2020: pushed to 2021 due to coronavirus and SPECTRE
