I really think the title could use a comma. No, Time to Die could easily be a Bond quip, but it’s also the attitude of every enemy soldier when asked “Can you survive this fight?”.

 

More like Roy Batty's autobiography.

I imagine after carefully sizing up the role and extensively researching the character he’ll do his usual job of delivering a performance with more ham than a butcher eating a spam fritter. He also looks too much like he should be headlining an EDM festival in Arizona for my liking.

I like Hardy but that’s an incredibly boring choice. Although the time stuff was obviously not very Bond Tenet really showed just how terrible the producers of this series have gotten at making globe trotting action movies.

I was hoping it would be a younger, not as well known actor to carve their own path.

 

George MacKay would be fucking brilliant!

 

I saw George McKay on stage at the Old Vic in the Caretaker some years back. I’d never heard of him before and he was sharing a stage with Daniel Mays and Timothy Spall, two of my favourite actors - he blew them away. I was transfixed. Real young Paul Bettany energy to him.

George McKay is a good shout.

 

May as well throw in Robert Pattinson as well seeing as he seems to be able play almost any role well these days.  Although k cant oersonally see it.

 

I liked the idea of Idris Elba too but as resonant as that might be for the times we live in I think it would be a risk of being a Daniel Craig Mk. II

 

The franchise needs a real change of gears.

I cant see Tilda Swinton as a bond character either. Although, I couldn't have predicted her role in Snowpiercer either!

 

I could accept Bob Hoskins as Tilda Swinton as Bond.

Robert Patterson is the best person that would never accept the role I think.

 

He'd be able to do something really interesting with it, but I can't see him committing to ten years of Bond films, given the projects he likes to do outside of Batman.

Everyone does their Bond audition movie. Back in the day, Craig’s was Layer Cake.

 

Tom Hardy had his character in Inception. Tom Hiddleston had The Night Manager. Dan Stevens had The Guest. Idris Elba has whatever shit, naff, non-Stringer Bell role he’s done lately. Who have I missed?

 

Matthew Goode would make an excellent period Bond, he already plays a posh aristocratic murderer in most things.

Honestly the worst thing about this rumour is the idea that Hardy would be stuck doing probably shite Bond films for years. Ditto Pattinson. Taking this role demands all your time, typecasts you forever, makes you hate movies and means you’re likely to only be in one or at best two good movies while you’re doing it.

I like the idea that instead of announcing with great fanfare "this actor IS your new James Bond, for the next several films, until further notice!", EON could do a sequence of one-off films, each with different actors who might not want to commit to being the one and only active Bond actor for the next decade.

 

Essentially try doing for Bond what Joker was to the DCEU: one-off, lower-budget films that aren't restricted by continuity, and giving different writers, directors, and actors a chance to play with the franchise toys.

 

One of the benefits of this is that it might help reduce the gap between releases, if it doesn't have to revolve around one lead actor's schedule.

 

"Experimental" might be too strong a word... but it would give them chance to make films like the '50s-set Casino Royale adaptation that Tarantino had in mind before Craig was cast. They could do a movie about other 00 agents. Give Christopher Nolan his Bond movie (though I doubt that would be "lower-budget"!). They could do their ultra-realistic one separately from their gadget-filled volcano-base one, without having to commit to continuing in that tone for the foreseeable future.

 

However if they did do that, and this was how a movie with a female Bond came about, it would be hard to avoid it being perceived as lesser than and separate from the main series. Just like if Jodie Whittaker had only played Doctor Who in one episode: "We'll make the character a woman just this once... but we're not going to commit to it."

I love this idea.

 

But like Joker, the studio just wouldn’t be able to help themselves once they have a hit on their hands and we’ll be looking at sequels quicker than you can shake a Vodka Martini (blended with ice, syrup and tiny umbrella)
