James Bond 25 will be filmed in Matera
The latest adventure of Daniel Craig as secret agent 007 has had many difficulties on his path toward the big screen. Originally, the director, Oscar winner, Danny Boyle, had been hired for the film, but stepped down last summer because of a dispute on the villain of the film. The version of Boyle had been written by the writer of Trainspotting, John Hodge, which means that the new script had to be completed before production could begin. Then came the veterans of the Bond, Neal Purvis & Robert Wade to take care of this, and Cary Fukunaga, was called to the director.
But even with a new creative team, things are not easy, so much so that the film was recently postponed to 8 April 2020. At that time, it just seemed like the desire of the studio to take advantage of the Easter weekend, where movies such as Batman V Superman and the Furious 7 debuted with huge numbers. Unfortunately, it now seems that the shift of the date of distribution may be caused by other problems. Bond 25 would be in fact getting a rewrite massive.
According to The Playlist, Burns is coming to give Bond 25 a “review”, because the producers are not exactly happy with the way in which the project is forming. Burns was courted by the producers of the Bond in the past, but this is the first time that the writer lends his talents to the MI6. In addition to the Bourne Ultimatum, Burns is best known for his collaborations with Steven Soderbergh. His last film, The Report, was shown meeting with many acclaim at Sundance.
Given how Spectre has been challenged, it is understandable why EON would want to start over and renew the script for Bond 25. Since the departure of Craig, all the participants want to see the actor go away after a great film. While Craig himself has always played to the maximum as 007, the movie that have seen the protagonist are of different quality: the heights Casino Royale and Skyfall are contrasted by the film just as brilliant as the Quantum of Solace and Spectre. It would be a shame if the last memory of the audience of Craig as Bond was another episode disappointing. Not to mention that Mission: Impossible-the Fallout is likely to become the touchstone for the spy movie, to the detriment of Bonds.
In the meantime, the film has found a title, even if provisional, Shatterhand, who has also met with the irony of a fan to tell the truth, but which perhaps has a reference to You only live twice. In any case, we now know that the film, which will go into production on the 6th of April, will also have a little bit of Italy, since a part of it will be shot (it says from 18 August to 23 September) in Matera.
