I remember Timothy Dalton was in awe of Kathrine Hepburn because she was actually on set sitting behind the camera acting With him during his scenes. This was in "The lion in the winter" in 1968. Many actors, especially stars, don't bother being on set when they're not on camera.

Yes, I mentioned that above, but I think the culture has changed a bit since then and it's seen as professional to turn up and do the reverse shots. I'm sure not everyone does it though, yes.

I think things have changed since then. From what I hear it's unprofessional to not be there for others to act off of.

I think playing James Bond should come with a government health warning:

Craig's injury may delay the film? Worst case scenario - Bond 25: 'Shatterfoot' goes back to a winter 2020 release.

Regarding actors on or not on set - Peter Sellers refused to act with Orson Welles on 1967's Casino Royale. Some or all of the scenes in the casino - Bond vs Le Chiffre - were filmed on different days. Welles filmed his scenes on one day, Sellers on a different day. Sellers actually walked off the set and film itself (!) and had to be persuaded to return. The film was a production nightmare! ajb007/wink

Maybe they have changed the story since you read it, but if you scroll down they do admit that it is the barrel sequence from Casino, but yes, you're right, they give the impression for much of the story that it is something new.

On the bright side, with newspapers publishing any ludicrous story about Bond25, they must be getting some serious internet traffic, suggesting that there is immense interest in Bond25.  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Skyfall and Spectre both published a first image that would be seen in the film, not a BTS shot, 71 days after their start of filming, for Skyfall that was a 3 November start of filming and Spectre's was a 3 December start.

71 days would equate to Friday 5 July for the first Bond25 picture, if we take 25 April as the start of filming. So, only 18 days until then.

If the Norway filming had been considered the start, then 71 days would have meant a picture released on 5 June.

We're back to "doomed" again. The Sun must really have it in for the Bond Franchise. It must have ripped their dark little hearts out to publish those images of Craig working out and looking jacked in preparation for his return. I'm sure they would have loved to have a shot of Craig guzzling a pint and getting out of shape while he recovers.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

It's really funny because Fukunaga has this rep as this really intense film maker who collaborates very well with others on the set, including both actors and crew. Truth be told, if crew members did have to work overtime, I would imagine they get very well compensated. Working on a film is not like a typical 9-5 job.

Not as well compensated as you might think. I had a friend who worked around the clock on a Bond & did indeed expect a big payout for his efforts but the pot was so large it entered a much higher tax bracket & said payout was pretty much wiped out by said tax bracket. This is the reason "crew gifts" (misappropriated props) were such an important element of the job until the producer's banned such practices!  ajb007/frown

They dont do crew gifts anymore?

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

From Die Another Day onward crew gifts became just that crew gifts be it a luggage tag set or a stool or bottle of bubbly signed by the principle actor. Previous to 2002/the 40th Anniversary, crew gifts were pretty much whatever the crew member in question had picked up & kept on set. On TWINE one adventurous chap helped himself to the radio control BMW Z3 miniature but had to return it a bit sharpish when they discovered it was missing. This "No Crew Gifts" policy is also why there are not too many major Daniel Craig pieces out there apart from the pieces Barbara and Michael donate to their nominated charities  ajb007/martini

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Like most tab "stories" there could very well be some basis of truth but the particulars have been twisted into a negative spin.
It is not beyond the realm of possibility that the director was late to the set; however the reason for the lateness probably has nothing to do with video games. And yes, it would not be out of the realm of possibility that a crew member or crew members were annoyed. People get annoyed at things at work all the time. I think this one can be filed under the same title as the reports of Craig and Fukunaga
engaging in an intense argument......"BS".

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

Danny Boyle tells Metro he'll never work on a franchise film after Bond25.
https://metro.co.uk/2019/06/18/danny-bo … e-9998949/

I'm guessing that Boyle wanted to film HIS Bond film, but DC and the producers wanted something that follows Spectre along with all the other constraints that would entail joining a franchise, do's and don'ts of the characters etc.

I think that nothing of Boyle's script will be in Bond25. I think it's Purvis and Wade's script with extra work from Fukunaga, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Scott Burns.

Re: Craig is back: Discuss Bond 25 here

The Boyle/Hodge script was supposed to have a killer plot twist. If true, I expect that remains.

Fukunaga is the man - I’ll say it. He’s the only reason I think this movie might be good.
