Reports that Barbara Broccoli is busy on other projects, not waiting for Daniel Craig

11-May-2017 • Bond 25

Producer Barbara Broccoli is not waiting around for him to "get off his arse," to start making Bond 25 according to a report in Page Six today.

The column explains: "Broccoli was at dinner at the Chateau Marmont with other high-profile filmmakers on Tuesday, and pals said she’s not sure when the next 007 film will shoot."

"She’s busy producing two other films and a play, including the London hit “The Kid Stays in the Picture,” which is expected to head to Broadway next."

Although there were rumblings of Christopher Nolan's potential involvement a few days ago, Bond 25 does not have an announced director and writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade only started on a new treatment in early April. Throw into the mix the non-Bond projects that Broccoli is pursuing, it's now highly implausible that any filming Bond 25 will start this year. Whether Daniel Craig is sitting on his arse or not.
