It's Time to Explore the Horror of Being James Bond

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat- ... 07-1145824

“Fukunaga has made a name for himself delivering deeply introspective looks at broken minds, and broken countries, in ways that refuse to shy away from either horror or mystique. Although he has yet to make a full-on genre film, he has infused his work with touches of the macabre, the gothic, the surreal and even the Lovecraftian. If Boyle made a great choice for Bond because of his potential to dig into Bond's everyday humanity, then Fukunaga makes for a very different, though no less exciting, choice because he may be the filmmaker to delve into the horror of being James Bond.”

I think, we are in for a treat with him. :wink:
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

Yes, I think we could find ourselves coming full circle from CR. The cracks in his visage may start to be explored once more.

Could be, but Canada is used often by Hollywood to substitute for other locations (wasn't Dream House filmed there?) because of unionized labor and it being cheaper to film exterior locations. They call it "Hollywood North".

Cary Fukunaga, first Asian-American to direct 007 film, talks about ‘Bond 25’
https://entertainment.inquirer.net/3052 ... ut-bond-25

“In terms of what I can bring to change the character, Bond is on a character arc that started with ‘Casino Royale,’ and I will be carrying that on. There will be changes, I am sure. As in any story, a character has to change in order [to have] a narrative.”

The 2014 Emmy best director-drama series for “True Detective” did not confirm nor deny the buzz that Christoph Waltz (Blofeld) and Ben Whishaw (Q) are not returning to the franchise’s latest installment.

“Who is saying those rumors?” he asked aloud. “We haven’t finished the screenplay, so there is no way that anyone could know that. Those are two extraordinary actors, so if there is space for them in the story, I would absolutely want them there. But I don’t know yet what it’s going to be.”

There will always be rumors. Cary Fukunaga knows exactly how to spread a meaningless rumor without violating his contract.

I wouldn't mind Waltz NOT being in B25, but I would miss Ben.

I hadn't heard any "buzz" that Ben Whishaw wouldn't be returning (just the opposite, in fact), so no idea where that's supposedly come from.
I really hope he will be back. :)
