James Bond 25 To Be Revealed Today
Shaken, not stirred.
Update: Despite the tease, Bond 25 has not really been revealed. Instead, the producers revealed lots of details about Bond 25's plot and cast. Original story follows.
The next James Bond film, known at present only as Bond 25, is to be revealed very soon. The official 007 Twitter account confirmed the movie will be revealed in a livestream starting on April 25 at 5:10 AM PDT / 10:10 AM EDT / 1:10 PM BST / 10:10 PM AET.
Little else is known about Bond 25 at present, and the aforementioned tweet didn't give much else away. The reveal is taking place "from an iconic 007 location," it said, and fans will have the opportunity to ask the cast questions.
The movie has suffered a somewhat troubled production so far, with its first director, Danny Boyle, leaving in August due to "creative differences." Cary Fukunaga replaced Boyle before the film was delayed first from October 2019 to February 2020 and then again to April 2020.
The Bond actor himself, Daniel Craig, appeared reluctant to return for Bond 25. After wrapping Spectre, the previous film in the series, he said he'd rather slash his wrists than play the character again. He also said if he were to play Bond again, it would "only be for the money." A year later, a report claimed that Craig was offered $150 million to star in the next two 007 movies, before the actor confirmed his return in August 2017.
More recently, it has been reported that Bond 25's producers want Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek to play the villain. While he's yet to be confirmed, if he were to appear he would join a star-studded cast that currently contains Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, and Lea Seydoux, who are all confirmed to reprise their roles. Fleabag star and Killing Eve writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge has also reportedly joined the project.
