Ralph Fiennes Says BOND 24 Starts Filming in October

     February 27, 2014


We know pretty much nothing about the next James Bond film, but we do know that 2012’s Skyfall will be an incredibly tough act to follow.  Director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan will give it their best shot, though, as the duo are set to return in their respective duties for Bond 24.  The pic won’t be hitting theaters until October 2015 in the U.K. and November 2015 in the U.S., but we now have word of when filming is set to get underway as Ralph Fiennes tells MTV News, “It’s meant to start shooting in October.”  The actor will be reprising his role as Gareth Mallory in the next pic and he added that he hasn’t yet seen a script so he couldn’t possibly tease anything about the plot, though he noted that he’d probably be sworn to secrecy anyway.

Daniel Craig will return in the 24th Bond film and we assume that Naomie Harris (aka Moneypenny) will be back as well, but we recently learned the sad news that Skyfall cinematographer and all-around Master Roger Deakins will not be returning for the follow-up.

    I think it’s great that Fiennes is the new M! Great that we have Moneypenny and Q as well.

    Casino Royale and Skyfall were great, good to see Mendes return. Pity that Roger Deakins won’t… Hope they can find another great DOP for this. Bond needs to look good!

    Can we please use Q in another role than “the computer guy”… he needs to hand out a gat dayum grenade pen or something. I’m not talking Die Another Day cheesy gadgets but back to Goldfinger level. That would easily top Skyfall if everything else is decent.

    As a lifelong Bond fanatic, I loved almost everything about Skyfall, so I can’t wait to see what they do next. i do wish a new creative vision was brought in with the hiring of someone other than Mendes, but I’m certainly not gonna complain if he can deliver two sensational entries in a row. Deakins will be missed, however; curious to see who will replace him and whether or not they will continue shooting digital or go back to film (as I recall, Skyfall was done digitally at the insistence of Deakins more than anyone else).

      Honestly I think Goldeneye was the only good one he did. The World is not Enough was ok…. But the second one in Asia was bad and the last one with Halle Berry is probably the worst Bond ever made with an invisible car, the asian guy who turned into a white guy, never sleeps was a terrible villian. He was a good choice for Bond at the time, probably the best choice but the writing and rediculousness made it go down hill for me.

    It will be a tough act to follow but with Samn Mendes & Craig back and knowing they have to follow up something special it should be fine. Looking forward to it.
