one month passes...

The clock is ticking and despite that pre-production has already bled over into some production—cameras have been rolling on “Bond 25,” though it’s all second unit photography without the principal cast—the gears keep on turning on the screenplay for the next 007 movie. The Observer reports that Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been hired to “liven up” the still as-of-yet-untitled ‘Bond 25’ screenplay.

Waller-Bridge might be best known by American audiences for playing the recalcitrant droid L3-37 in “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” but she is a critically-acclaimed artist, writer, playwright known for the creating and writing the critically-acclaimed BBC comedy “Fleabag,” and the currently-beloved BBC America black comedic spy thriller “Killing Eve.”

But Waller-Bridge recently announces that “Fleabag” has ended after season two, she’s no longer the showrunner of “Killing Eve,” and has delegated duties and apparently has a hole in her schedule. That’s enough for star Daniel Craig who has reportedly specifically requested her to bring her wit and quirkiness to the screenplay.

Her character in the Solo movie was the best thing it.

That Solo character was irritating. Chewbacca was the most entertaining aspect of that debacle.

So, we know more now:

https://variety.com/2019/film/news/bond-25-daniel-craig-rami-malek-1203197623/

Rami Malek as the bad guy, presumably battling Bond with a mustache and a questionable historical record. Further:

“We’ve got quite a ride in store for Mr. Bond,” promised producer Barbara Broccoli. She also left a few breadcrumbs about what that ride might entail, telling viewers that the film will start with Bond out of active service and on holiday.

“He’s enjoying himself in Jamaica,” said Broccoli, who added that the production has built an “extraordinary” house for the famous agent and his license to kill. The official log-line states that “[Bond’s] peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”

Naomie Harris back as Moneypenny, plus:

Locations for the movie also include London, Italy and Norway, where some shooting has already taken place. The cast will include returning actors Lea Seydoux (Dr. Madeleine Swann), Jeffrey Wright (Felix Leiter), Ben Whishaw (Q), Rory Kinnear (Tanner) and Ralph Fiennes (M). Newcomers include Lashana Lynch, David Dencik, Ana De Armas and Dali Benssalah. The producers confirmed a Variety scoop that Billy Magnussen has joined the cast. Variety also previously reported Malek’s casting. The producers confirmed that the script will be written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

even bond needs to turn the phone off and recharge, build some time into schedule to work on himself, and rejuvenate. if there is no time, we have to make time

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 20 August 2019 16:23 (six days ago) link

you do have time to die, james. it starts with the idea that you do, in fact, have time.

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 20 August 2019 16:24 (six days ago) link

a time to die, a time to choog

tired: getting Phoebe Waller-Bridge to do "feminist" punchup
wired: casting Phoebe Waller-Bridge as the fist Bond girl to peg Bond

Simon H., Tuesday, 20 August 2019 17:00 (six days ago) link

Nice Freudian slip there.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 20 August 2019 17:05 (six days ago) link

Also we got synopsis:

In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Mysterio er wait.
