I would really like to know the truth. At what point are they right now?

This to me all makes sense. One more, 25th film. Done.
Sylvia's girl wrote:JAMES BOND chiefs are making fans wait two years for the next movie, in a bid to convince DANIEL CRAIG to return.

The break is designed to give Daniel time to wrap up a 20-episode US TV series, Purity, and take on a stint in Othello on Broadway – with the hope he’ll then be persuaded to play 007 for a fifth time.

But Bond producer BARBARA BROCCOLI will be keeping busy, too.

She set up Bad & Beautiful Productions last week alongside Gangs Of New York producer COLIN VAINES to work on an unnamed movie project.

An insider said: “Studio execs really want Daniel as he’s a safe Bond and does well at the box office.

“The next Bond is a special event because it’s the 25th movie.

“After the huge success of Skyfall and Spectre, everyone wants to get this right – nobody wants a reboot with an untested actor.

“Barbara wants Daniel as she’s a massive fan but she also wants to keep busy with other projects in the meantime.â€￾

When asked last year about the prospect of playing the spy again, Daniel said: “I would rather slash my wrists.â€￾

But with Spectre taking £600million at the cinema it’s no wonder they’re so keen to change his mind.

Surprisingly something in 'The Sun' makes sense for once. It didn't even register with me that Bond25 is such a milestone, and that making it a reboot would not be the most desirable of outcomes.

Though, who knows. Maybe the next Bond will be as brilliant as DC. Only time will tell.

I think it would be great to see Daniel be a part of another Bond milestone. Skyfall marked the 50th anniversary of Bond and if he could do Bond 25 that would be amazing :)

I would not have recognized this as a SUN article, as it's pretty clear.

Anyhooo...if he returns, if we wait two years before they film - I'm okay with that. I can be patient.

Because this gives us enough time to start a petition: we need more PFA scenes, etc etc. 8)

Guess we have to wait and see. Its ridiculous to think, these 2 years gaps can be done forever. 3 years is a good gap imo

I can be patient, I can wait three years too. I don't want the franchise - with him in it - to be forced or to get to the point where the films all blend into one (for those not as rabid fans of course.)

I can be patient too, I really hope he does one more but above all I hope HE wants to do one more. He brings so much to Bond and I would love to see that for one more outing :)

Well said SilverDragon.

Of course, admitting I am selfish and greedy, even if we get one more Bond...I'd want more.

The problem with a smaller gap between films is that they would be in danger of over saturating the cash cow.

A three year gap is more than acceptable. It builds demand and expectation, gives DC a break as promised (if he chooses to come back, that is, otherwise that comment is irrelevant) and allows them to build a solid foundation for a good story in the meantime.

On the other hand I see this as the one positive that plays into a possible DC return for now other than the elephant in the room being that he isn't getting any younger. Typically in the past its taken them a lot longer in recent years to appoint a successor to the mantle. However, it's mere speculation and everything remains to be seen.

I give it another three to six months before we start hearing anything more concrete about the distributor.

I believe, there will never be anything less then a 3 year gap. Of course, you can make it faster but then, I always got the feeling, after one, they all need a break and take their time. Many don't like that, but for me, that's pretty much ok.

You're right. The shoots are long and arduous... Something I always admire Daniel for saying is that it's not just him away from his family for that length of time but everyone behind him as well that make the film happen.

It's OK with me as well. It would likely get boring fast if there were too many, too quickly. I don't want it to become another Marvel or DC with the films all planned out to a tight schedule.

Plus, the films aren't even all that good anyway.

I never liked AMY Marcel of DC film. I have watched very few in the theater.
