I would guess that they have already started preliminary work...outline for script, etc...

I'm pretty sure that he will be back for back-to-back Bond if Eon productions throw a whole lotta money at him  ajb007/bond 

In that case, I can't wait for back-to-back Bond films and Daniel final outing  ajb007/martini

I can't imagine him agreeing to do two at once. One was difficult enough for him. The films would have to be more Connery/Moore style with much easier action. Spectre was already a much less physical film than before, and Craig still was miserable after filming it.

I can't speak for others, but personally I'd rather have one big OTT final film (loke Kingsman) for Craig, than two average ones.

ajb007/smile  fingers crossed

Please be true. Film the 2 movies back to back aswell, so there's no huge time gap between them.

Bond 25 - The Property Of A Lady - Madeline murdered. Bond seeks revenge on Blofeld. Blofeld loses hair at the end
Bond 26 - The Garden Of Death - Bond finally kills Blofeld

Perfect end to Daniel Craig's run. And he equals SC in # of bond films.

I like the titles but don't think they would work as Bond film titles. Quantum of Solace was already hampered with an awkward-sounding title and The Property of A Lady sounds more like a costume drama than a Bond film. I don't think the average filmgoer will care about the fact that it is a Fleming title. The Garden of Death is a great title but doesn't fit as neatly with Bond title formula; I think they're more likely to continue down the road of ghostly doomladen titles to emphasise Bond's potential doom. Or potentially they could hark back to something lighter.

I agree that if Craig does two more, they should be filmed back-to-back; they can't run the risk that Craig may age in the period between Spectre and the film after the next one. It also means that the public will look forward to both rather than thinking that Craig's been in the role a while and they want someone new.

I hope there's not two more.  Spectre was a nice nostalgic retread, but once was enough.  We got the "Ah, that's classic Bond!" moment and that's really all we needed.  There wasn't enough depth to spin off two more films. 

I feel like Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace were the core of the Craig years, and after that it sort of lost focus.  Quantum really developed an interesting organization and plot, and Spectre kind of made a joke out of it.

CR and QoS feel very different from Skyfall and Spectre; I don't buy that Bond at the end of QoS will have turned into the one in SF. We saw him swear his loyalty to the job at the end of QoS and then in SF he just doesn't care about the job at all. I thought Quantum was an interesting modern take on SPECTRE; I can see why they grabbed the opportunity to use SPECTRE as the name of the organisation again but felt it would have been more credible if they'd kept Quantum as the bad organisation (even if it is a bit of a forced name).

The series after SF was at a turning point and it's at another one again. I don't think they'll go back to the grit of the earlier two films but there's only so long that they can mine the back catalogue. SP didn't mine as shamelessly as SF (although I guess SF has the excuse it was the anniversary film) but it still felt that it moved the series backwards by selling itself mainly on the iconicism of SPECTRE and Blofeld.

Eventually they will go back to something like Casino Royale but I think that will come with a new actor.

Re: Blofeld Trilogy

I'm all for Craig and Waltz returning for two films, but if they do, I actually hope they reboot the series after they leave. Continuity wise, Crag will be 50+, so.....

Re: Blofeld Trilogy

If they do a SPECTRE trilogy, I would like to see a cliffhanger ending at the end of Bond 25, with Bond at the hands of SPCTRE and Blofeld out of prison. Then open then edt fi film wthnd rain washed (like in TMWTGG).

Re: Blofeld Trilogy

I'm definitely on-board for two more with Craig and Waltz. But I will say this, and I may very well be in the minority, but I look forward to a non-Sam Mendes directed film. Even though I enjoyed Skyfall and Spectre, I never felt true intensity or danger in his films, and the action scenes don't entirely sit right with me despite his most grandiose efforts. I also think it wouldn't hurt to find fresh blood in terms of writers.

I'm also looking forward to a non-Sam Mendes-directed film. What I dislike most are the Thomas Newman scores. That was by far the worst thing about Spectre.

Not the worst thing from my perspective, but decidedly mediocre, adding no value and undermining  some potentially better moments.
