That's what I always imagine.

Craig's bond going through his version of "Goldfinger" and "From Russia With Love" between 2008 and 2013

It doesn't look like Craig will be playing Bond again anytime soon. He's is finalizing a deal to star in heist film Logan Lucky, which begins production in the fall. He's also going to be doing in a limited TV series, Purity, which may consist of 20 episodes over the course of two seasons. That's quite a busy schedule.

Reports have surfaced that both Jamie Bell and Tom Hiddleston are talks to play Bond. However, Hiddleston is supposedly in advanced talks. Plus, the news of Bell has come from a UK tabloid. So, my odds are on Hiddleston.

So when will he be regenerating?

Seriously though, I don't follow Bond at all, but will he be having one last film or is it simply that the next Bond film will be with a new actor?

There's no way with the kind of money the movies make that they'll wait for Craig to wait out his new tv commitments, Craig's done.

I don't know if they'll reboot the continuity or not, I don't think that they will having set things up for Blofeld to possibly return. It'd probably be a good idea now more than ever to utilize the "Bond as Codename" theory and legitimize it, that way they can always have a team-up movie with Craig if he wants to come back

i personally thinks it's dumb to have both a fake name & a number code name.
what's the point of having the title of 007 if "james bond" is a name different people use?

Maybe they're all part of the code name. Like...it'd be weird if someone insisted on only being called 007 by everyone. So there needs to be a normal name for registering hotels, speaking with people, etc etc. So the 'James Bond' name is jut part of the 007 codename.

Craig himself mentioned that "00 agents have a very short life expectancy" in Casino Royale---I think the 00 Agent thing is a program, because there have, in fact, been other 00s than just 007 (006, aka Alec Trevelyan, springs to mind almost immediately---funny how spellcheck didn't red-flag Trevelyan, but it flagged "Royale".....).

You don't have to think. It is a program in the novels and movies. Watch "Thunderball"



In Ian Fleming's James Bond novels and the derived films, the 00 Section of MI6 is considered the secret service's elite. A 00 (typically read "Double O" and denoted in Fleming's novels by the letters "OO" rather than the digits "00") agent holds a licence to kill in the field, at his or her discretion, to complete the mission.

A good actor doesn't turn down a role just because of flack they may get. They take the role because they want to play the character. If you are turning down a role because of the backlash, then you are turning it down for the wrong reasons and I will probably lose some respect for you.

You know that's exactly what Will Smith did a decade ago. He was actually offered to play Superman, but turned it down due to ethnicity concerns.

Actually, I remember most people being totally on board with Ned Leeds becoming Asian and Liz Allan becoming latina.

Probably because those two aren't major characters. Just side ones. Though I do remember coming across one person ranting about that though. He was making it seem like Spectacular Spider-man had made Gwen Asian or JJJ African American.

But as long as the major characters aren't affected, the majority of the people won't really give a damn. Outside of comic "purists" of course.

KNEW it!

I still say they could go with that proposed scene for either "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" or "Diamonds Are Forever" where the previous Bond got plastic surgery to become the new Bond.....it'd be a lot easier with the CG available today, probably.

That is just a fan theory made to make all James Bond movies canon with each other.

James Bond is Agent OO7. He is a white upper class Englishman. The movies portray him in different ways but at his core he is a sexist, a murderer and very intelligent.

The only people who know his job title either employ him or want him dead. His name is unimportant and is not some big secret, it makes fake stories easier to remember too.

Why bother with fake IDs when you are a rich Englishman that can charm his way around anyone?

I don't like it when actors only do the job for the money. Having EON entice Daniel back with more money is silly.

Roger Moore wanted to leave after For Your Eyes Only but he was enticed to do more with money.

There's talk of Aiden Turner from "Being Human" and "Poldark"



Aidan Turner ([The Hobbit) reported flew out to L.A to have further talks about taking over from Craig as Bond in March.

EDIT: Reportedly Craig hasn't made a decision yet

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/enter..._variant=nonjs



The rumor grows. This could be more tabloid BS but Aiden Turner is rumored to be announced next week

Looks like the Brocollis will be working on some new projects and holding off the next Bond film until 2018, giving time for script development and to possibly persuade Craig to come back
