The rumour mill is going into overdrive again regarding the 25th James Bond Movie. ‘Shatterhand’ is the working title of the new film according to the mirror and it will see Bond take on a blind super-villian. It is thought that that Daniel Craig is reprising the role of Bond for the next instalment, which at the age of 51 is getting on a bit for an action hero. However Sir Roger Moore and Sir Sean Connery starred in their final Bond movies when they were both in their 50’s. We think he has one more good Bond movie left in him before he steps down.
The 25th Bond film will be basing parts of the plot of the 2001 Bond novel Never Dream Of Dying by U.S. author Raymond Benson and is expected to be released in November 2019. Its being written by longtime Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade The mirrors source said: “Bond scriptwriters feel it could be the perfect follow-up to Spectre. They are hoping to film in Croatia next year.” Apparently Bond producers were not happy when in a press conference the Mayor of Dubrovnik told the local media that they were in advanced stages of negotiations. Also its possible Adele will return to record the film’s theme tune. Again more rumours. Her involvement in Skyfall helped make it the most profitable Bond film to date. So with the next bond be the 25th, they have pressure to make it a good one. So getting Daniel Craig and Adele back on board could be another winning combination.
However all this could be a load of cobblers. How much of this is fact is anyone’s guess. These rumours were started by the Mirror newspaper, but they do have a history of pulling “exclusives” out of the bag when a new Bond movie is announced. They have to get their readers from somewhere I guess. The talk about the filming location being is Croatia is quite believable because it’s used the filming location for Kings Landing in Game of Thrones. Plus Star Wars: The Last Jedi has some major scenes filmed there. The country has been enjoying the extra boost in tourists wanting to see these locations. High profile shows like Game of Thrones and Movies like Star Wars come with hundreds of die-hard fans all wanting to grab a selfie in these stunning filming locations. Croatia is proving to be a very film location friendly country as it were, so it wouldn’t surprise us if this part of the rumours turn out to be true.
Again this is all rumour as none of this has not been officially confirmed. Shatterhand does sound very Bond like, but we will all have to wait and see.
