Are you ready for the next James Bond movie? I am.

And the new villain is gonna be, reportedly, that most dastardly thing of all: eco-friendly.

The Sun reports:

As the plot is shrouded in secrecy, it is not clear what the villain is plotting to do or how 007 confronts him.

But:

[Bond’s] unnamed nemesis – nicknamed Greenfinger by insiders – has a lair powered by an algae farm and with a Zen garden.

Perhaps he’ll do eco things like suspend himself from a bridge just before a national debate, and cost the city millions of dollars.

Aw, dang it:

For now, mum’s the word. Except the eco thing:

Director Cary Joji Fukunaga is so keen to keep the plot under wraps he has reportedly filmed three endings. But an eco-friendly villain would be a Bond first. One theory is that algae blooms can produce deadly toxins.

One source told The Sun Bond’s Enemy #1 will be played by Rami Malek, who won an Oscar for Bohemian Rhapsody. And he’s into slime:

[A] source said: “The baddie’s lair apparently has a giant algae farm.

“Something like that would look very sinister and green so will look great on the screen.”

“Quite how it will impact Bond only the scriptwriters can know but fans will be keen to find out.”

As reported by The Daily Wire, Rami explained to The Mirror he was excited to be in the film, but he demanded his Middle Eastern character not be an Islamic terrorist:

“It’s a great character and I’m very excited,” Malek told The Mirror earlier this year. “But that was one thing that I discussed with [director] Cary Fukunaga. I said, ‘We cannot identify him with any act of terrorism reflecting an ideology or a religion. That’s not ­something I would entertain, so if that is why I am your choice then you can count me out’. But that was clearly not his vision. So he’s a very different kind of terrorist.”

Maybe he can be the kind of environmental terrorist who shuts down 20+ intersections or petrifies children to the point of them pledging not to reproduce.

Rami said he’s Egyptian, and he wants only positive representations of his people:

“I am Egyptian. I grew up listening to Egyptian music. I loved Omar Sharif,” Malek said. “These are my people. I feel so gorgeously tied to the culture and the human beings that exist there.”

Unfortunately — and, perhaps, yet unbeknownst to the actor — the fact that he’s the villain will mean he’s a mass murderer.

And murdering people for reasons other than religion doesn’t make it any better.

Big News: A New 007 Will Be Introduced in Bond 25, & the Person Playing The Character Has Been Named

According to Fox News, James Bond will pass the torch to another 007 agent in the next, 25th installment.

Purportedly, the next Agent 007 will be played by 31-year-old British actress Lashana Lynch.

Lashana appeared as the best friend to the main character in recent superhero effort Captain Marvel.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Bond 25 writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge puts the actress front and center:

“There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says ‘Come in 007,’ and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman,” a Bond insider claimed. “It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.”

And she don’t need no man:

“Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don’t work on a brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning.”

Furthermore, the franchise’s marketing is getting awokened.

As per Fox:

The insider also claimed that the phrase “Bond girls” is now verboten: The females in the spy franchise are now reportedly ordered to be called “Bond women.”

Writer Phoebe explains that Bond can no longer be Bond as the world has known him:

“There’s been a lot of talk about whether or not Bond is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women. I think that’s bullsh**. I think he’s absolutely relevant now. [The franchise] has just got to grow. It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesn’t have to. He needs to be true to his character.”

One thing that won’t be changing: The great Christoph Waltz will return as the villainous Blofeld.

What are your thoughts on the trajectory of the franchise? Will you be going to see the new movie?

Let us all know.

Also, what are your favorite Bond films? Your favorite Bond(s)?

When Daniel was first announced as the new spy, I thought he was all wrong. But 30 seconds into his maiden voyage, I was sold. That being said, in my view, Casino Royale lacked action. I’ve enjoyed all the films since.

I believe Pierce Brosnan was the perfect man for the job during his era, though for some reason, Goldeneye looks far more dated than it should.

And Sean Connery was great.

Whatcha think?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Report: The 007 moniker is passed on

Westlake Legal Group 007 Report: The 007 moniker is passed on The Blog lashana lynch James Bond daniel craig

James Bond is no longer 007. Via Daily Mail:

In what’s been called a ‘popcorn-dropping moment’, British star Lashana Lynch, will be given Bond’s licence to kill in the 25th movie in the franchise, currently being shot in Italy and the UK.

However, traditionalists can relax: she’s not the new Bond, but a new character who takes over his secret agent number after he leaves MI6.

The story begins with Bond retired in Jamaica. But spymaster M – played by Ralph Fiennes – calls him back in desperation to tackle a new global crisis.

A movie insider said: ‘There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says ‘Come in 007’, and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman.

‘It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.

‘Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don’t work on a brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning.’

The move actually makes sense and may have been set up in Casino Royale when M made a comment to Bond about doing better than his predecessor. The theory, explained by author D.F. Lovett, was James Bond is the actual code name since far fewer actors and actresses have played M versus those who have played Bond. However, this move with Lashana Lynch, works even more if Bond is a retired agent and no longer using the 007 moniker.

It doesn’t mean there aren’t still potential problems for any future Bond film.

Bond 25 is supposed to be Daniel Craig’s last film as the iconic spy. What might happen if Lynch’s 007 dies in this film or is not retained as 007 in Bond 26 without an explanation? Would movie producers skip the entire 007 gun emblem for ‘just’ James Bond or would they just go with a 007 title with a female agent? Either one could work but would still require some explaining – especially if producers go back with James Bond 007. This could have been avoided by having Lynch portray a female 00 agent who wasn’t 007. Sean Bean’s Alec Trevelyan character in GoldenEye was 006 so there is precedent with other numbered agents.

It could be filmmakers will either go with Jane Bond in the next film or have Craig’s Bond die with Lynch taking his name as a tribute. That’s combining both the notion 007 can be passed on along with the ‘James Bond’ name. It could explain even more why the actor (or actress?) playing Bond changes every few films.

There’s also a question of ‘why’ this is being done. Whatever source talked to Daily Mail suggested it was to bring Bond into the future or something.

‘This is a Bond for the modern era who will appeal to a younger generation while sticking true to what we all expect in a Bond film,’ the source added. ‘There are spectacular chase sequences and fights, and Bond is still Bond but he’s having to learn to deal with the world of #MeToo.’

I didn’t realize Bond had to deal with the world of #MeToo, but, if we’re going for gritty realism, okay.

Of course, Die Another Day was supposed to lead to a Jinx Johnson spin-off film franchise in 2002 but MGM went for the Craig reboot. This doesn’t mean this plan of Lashana Lynch as 007 will suffer a similar fate. It just depends on how MGM decides to do the story and whether the audience will accept it.

Idris Elba was still a great idea as the next Bond. Hopefully, that gets revisited at some point.
