Hiddleston would make for a great Bond, but it all depends if he's willing to jump from one giant franchise right into another.

He's been angling for the role since the rumors started. I don't think that would be a problem.

If Layer Cake is what got Craig the role



I'm thinking The Night Manager is what might clinch it for Hiddleston.

If they're really gonna do a female bond, it has to be Emily Blunt, right?

Hayley Atwell is a good call, tits mcgee and all, but I'm more confidence Blunt can pull off the action after seeing LDR and Sicarios.

Tom Hiddleston: I doubt I'll play James Bond

Bookies’ favourite to follow Daniel Craig as 007 tells an audience at pop culture conference that ‘he doesn’t think the announcement is coming’

Tom Hiddleston has said doesn’t believe he will be the next James Bond. The actor is the popular favourite to take over from Daniel Craig, who starred in the last film, Sceptre.

“I don’t think that announcement is coming,” Hiddleston told a rowdy audience at the Wizard World Comic Con in Philadelphia last weekend. “I am very gratified to hear the enthusiasm. Your guess is as good as mine, to be honest.”

Who’s On The James Bond Director Short List?

by Mike Fleming Jr

July 26, 2017 11:03am

EXCLUSIVE: James Bond has a release date for his next film, and he will soon have a director. We’ve known for months that Daniel Craig was going to return and finish his run as 007 with the one film commitment he has left on his deal, so that is hardly a surprise. While there has been published speculation about Dunkirk‘s Christopher Nolan and Baby Driver‘s Edgar Wright possibly surfacing as each did the press tour on those hit films, I’m hearing that the three frontrunners to direct the next James Bond movie are Yann Demange, Denis Villeneuve and David Mackenzie. Demange directed ’71, an electric 2014 thriller that starred Jack O’Connell as a British soldier left behind the lines in Northern Ireland after dark, who struggles to get safe. He is currently directing White Boy Rick, with Matthew McConaughey leading the ensemble.Villeneuve is coming off the Best Picture nominee Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, the Alcon sequel which will be released by Warner Bros October 6. Mackenzie directed Best Picture nominee Hell or High Water, and he signed on to direct Outlaw King, the story of Scottish king Robert the Bruce, which most know from Braveheart. These are top of the food chain filmmakers, all. As for Nolan and Wright, each has shown some exuberance about Bond duty, but the likelier scenario is they would take over the franchise down the line when it is inevitably rebooted and they can start from scratch.Villeneuve might have a scheduling conflict — he’s making Dune for Legendary — which might give a slight edge to Demange. The three frontrunners have all had meetings, I am told.

EON ‘s Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and MGM still haven’t set a distributor for the film, but there is plenty of time for that. Longtime home Sony, Warner Bros, Annapurna, Fox and Universal are all pursuing distribution rights to the franchise. But the producers and MGM did just set the Bond 25 movie for November 8, 2019, with a traditional earlier release in the UK and rest of the world. That means they will have to select a filmmaker quickly and I expect that to be completed by end of summer. Bond 25 will be written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who penned Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.
Out of those three I think I'd be most excited for Mackenzie, but the most exciting prospect remains Christopher Nolan. I don't like Edgar Wright for this at all, but I don't think he's able to play nice with folks like Wilson and Broccoli, so that's never going to happen anyway.

I agree with you about Mackenzie being the best choice. I would rather see Nolan, if he wanted to do a spy movie, do his own spy property rather than contend with all the Bond baggage. Regardless, just be better than Spectre. Spectre was so bad I don't want Craig back.

Based on the article, Craig is signed for one more movie and they seem to think Nolan would rather come in with a new Bond.

I understand what you're saying about the baggage even if they let Nolan reboot with a new Bond (which would obviously be Tom Hardy), but he'd get about $150 million from WB to go make a generic spy movie. Spectre's budget was $250 million. Depending on who signs on to be the new distributor, there could be $300 million available. He's not going to walk away from a chance to make a Bond movie with that kind of cash.

I'm not going to pretend to know his motivations. That is a lot of money. But the Broccolis seem very protective of the brand, and he probably wants more freedom than "here's where the song bit needs to go, and here's the car chase bit." I think if he had more freedom he'd be into it, but if he had to kowtow to their decisions, why bother? He doesn't need this for his filmography.

And it wouldn't be a "generic spy movie." It would be a Nolan spy movie, but you don't know the main character.

I think Villeneuve is busy with Dune? Also wouldn't be a good choice, and neither would Edgar Wright. I also feel like it would be a step down for Nolan, and I also also can't believe Daniel Craig is doing this after saying for years that he would rather kill himself. That doesn't inspire confidence that this will be good.

The Craig line never bothered me. It seemed like a sarcastic remark that the Internet took way too seriously.

I don't agree with this. It would be the largest scale movie of his career, and as a film franchise, James Bond is the longest running and one of the most prestigious. Certainly more important to the rest of the world than stupid Batman. And after the mostly crappy Craig era, rebooting Bond and making it work would be quite the feat.

More importantly - If he were to do it, it's because it's something he's genuinely passionate about. Take your boy Villeneuve - he doesn't need the headaches associated with Blade Runner OR Dune. Both of those projects are beneath him. But he's taking both on because he's passionate about them and because he wants the challenge of making two arguably terrible ideas work.
