With Bond 25 set for release Soon, sources say Craig has already made his pick for leading lady clear. One insider told us: “He wants Monica Bellucci back.”
Monica made headlines as the oldest Bond girl ever when she appeared, aged 51, as Lucia Sciarra, widow of a notorious assassin. She will be 55 when the next Bond movie comes out. The new film promises to be out of this world. Sources say Craig, 49, will take on a supersonic-style missile in the movie.
It is claimed the idea for the plot came from Elon Musk, the billionaire tech entrepreneur. Musk, 46, who bought Bond’s iconic Lotus Esprit submarine car from earlier Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, is said to be developing ideas for a spacecraft.
Film insiders confirm the latest installment of the famous franchise – which includes Moonraker and Skyfall – will echo our futuristic world. A source said: “Bond needs to keep up with the times and will be looking into Elon Musk’s world, spacecraft, planes that can fly across the earth in an hour, cars turning into submarines.
“That’s what we need to include now. Daniel’s stunts are going to move to a new level and have to include things that were shown in space movies like Interstellar.
Filming will once again include scenes with thousands of extras, incredible costumes, and grand spectacles, this time thought to be set in South Africa. It has also been reported that Craig wants highly regarded Denis Villeneuve, who was behind thriller Sicario and sci-fi hit Arrival, to direct it.
