Lashana Lynch will reportedly become the first female 007 by taking over James Bond’s codename in the latest movie.
The Captain Marvel star was announced as a castmember back in April, and is apparently set to play Nomi, a secret agent who inherits Bond’s iconic codename after he retires to Jamaica.

A movie insider tells Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper that the 25th official James Bond film, which has the working title Bond 25, opens with a scene in which the British actress’ character is unveiled as the new 007, before Daniel Craig’s Bond is called back into action.
“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,” the source revealed.
“It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007.”
The moment is believed to be a nod to speculation around Daniel’s replacement, as some have called for the franchise to move with the times and for producers to cast a black man as Bond, or even to switch the character’s gender.
Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge has also been brought in to work on the script in a bid to modernize the latest installment.
“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,” she told the Mail of her role. “I think that’s b–locks. 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.”
However, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has said that there would “never” be a female Bond, despite efforts to update the character.

Second Peeping Tom investigation on James Bond set

Police are investigating a second alleged Peeping Tom spying on women on the set of the new James Bond movie.
A 49-year-old man was arrested back in June and charged with voyeurism after a recording device was found in a women’s toilet at Pinewood Studios, where the latest 007 film is currently in production.
Police are now investigating a second incident after a second alleged Peeping Tom slid their hand under a toilet cubicle partition to film a woman.
“Thames Valley Police is investigating a case of voyeurism at an address in Pinewood Road, Iver Heath, Bucks,” a spokesperson for Thames Valley Police told WENN in a statement. “The incident occurred at around 2 p.m. on Friday…No arrests have been made.”
A studio source told British newspaper The Sun the victim’s experience has left other women at the studio fearful.
“The woman chased after him and shouted at people to stop him but he got away,” they said. “All the crew are looking at each other and wondering who is the creep, some of the women are terrified of using the toilets and going in pairs.
“It can only be someone who has access to the studios as you need a pass to get in and that’s what makes it worse, that it’s one of your colleagues.”

The victim fled screaming from the scene and security staff were alerted but were unable to apprehend the suspect.
A representative for Pinewood Studios confirmed the matter has been reported to the police, and a suspect banned from the set.
“Safety and security are of paramount importance,” they said. “We reported the incident immediately to the police and have shared details of a suspect who has now been banned from the site.”

DOUBLE-O-ROYAL: Prince Charles reportedly in talks for Bond 25 role

British royal Prince Charles is reportedly in talks to appear in the upcoming 25th James Bond movie.
According to Britain’s The Sun newspaper, the 70-year-old future monarch has been approached by producers of the flick, which is currently shooting under the moniker Bond 25, who are desperate for Charles to make a cameo appearance in the film.
A source told the publication it was Queen Elizabeth’s appearance alongside Daniel Craig’s 007 for the opening ceremony of London’s 2012 Olympic Games that inspired them to reach out to the Prince of Wales, adding: “They loved the buzz around the Queen’s appearance alongside Daniel Craig and think Charles could top even that.
“He is the epitome of everything British, perfect for a cameo role and Bond fans worldwide would absolutely love it.”

They added the idea of an appearance in the movie was brought up when Charles visited the film set earlier this year, where he posed for photos with Bond actor Craig, 51.
However, if Charles turns down the offer, it’s claimed his sons, Princes Harry and William, are next on the filmmakers’ hit list.
“If Charles doesn’t go for it Harry and Wills could be in producers’ sights next,” the source told the paper.
Bond 25 is slated for release on April 3, 2020.

'No Time to Die': 25th James Bond movie gets a title

Another Famous Potential Bond 25 Villain
featured by
LOS ANGELES — The new James Bond film finally has a title – “No Time to Die” – and an April 2020 release date, producers announced on Tuesday.
“Daniel Craig returns as James Bond, 007 in… NO TIME TO DIE. Out in the UK on 3 April 2020 and 8 April 2020 in the US,” according to a brief posting on the official 007 Twitter account.
Filming for the new movie, previously known only as Bond 25, got underway in Jamaica in April when producers announced that Oscar winner Rami Malek will play the villain in the latest entry in the lucrative British spy franchise.
Craig confirmed in 2017 that he would return for the fifth time as secret agent 007.
Producers said on Tuesday that the new film would see Bond enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after leaving active service before an old friend, Felix Leiter, from the CIA turns up asking for help.
Bond embarks on a mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist, which puts him on the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology, they added.
“No Time to Die” was initially expected to arrive in movie theatres in November 2019 but that date was pushed back to 2020 after Britain’s Danny Boyle pulled out as director and was replaced by American Cary Joji Fukunaga.

The film is also being shot in London, Italy and Norway and actors reprising their roles will include Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw as Q.
The Bond franchise is one of the movie world’s most lucrative with 2015’s “Spectre” raking in $880 million at the box office worldwide, while “Skyfall” in 2012 grossed more than $1 billion globally.

Priyanka Chopra eyes Bond role
featured by
Priyanka Chopra has put herself in the running to be the first female James Bond.
The actress is a massive fan of the British spy drama franchise, and thinks it’s definitely time for a female 007 — and she thinks she’s the perfect candidate.
“I’ve always been keen on (playing James Bond) but I can’t put myself into the race obviously,” she told Britain’s Metro newspaper. “I think, in my lifetime it would be amazing to have a female Bond. Whether that’s me or someone else, it’s something I would love to see.”
The Baywatch star made it clear she’s a serious contender and, when asked which actress she could see stepping into Daniel Craig’s shoes, she joked: “Me!
“I don’t know, I would just be very happy with the fact that it would be a woman,” The Sky Is Pink actress explained. “I definitely think (it’s time).”
Filming recently wrapped on the 25th Bond movie, No Time To Die, which is rumoured to be Craig’s fifth and final outing in the role. It debuts in cinemas next April.

Daniel Craig looks like he could be the older brother of Alfred E. Neuman (Mad Magazine). I haven't been able to watch a bond movie since without picking it apart. Mad Magazine has actually done several parodies of Bond films.

'SOMEONE ELSE HAS TO DO IT': Daniel Craig said he's done playing James Bond

Daniel Craig plans to walk away from the James Bond franchise completely after the release of his fifth and final turn as 007.
The British actor, 51, has confirmed reports suggesting next year’s (20) No Time To Die will be his last outing as the suave superspy, admitting he’s ready to move on from the role he’s played since 2006’s Casino Royale.
In an interview with German website Express, he explained, “In the future, someone else has to do it.”
He was also asked about the possibility of returning to Bond to work behind the camera, but Craig – who has yet to direct a project of his own – made it clear he won’t be pursuing that gig because it’s too time-consuming.

“If you’re a director, then at night you’re still with the producers, screenwriters, (and more) on the phone. And then after two hours of sleep, you have to go back up to the set. No thanks.”
Craig wrapped filming on his final Bond movie last month.
No Time To Die, directed by Cary Fukunaga, also features the return of Lea Seydoux, Jeffrey Wright, Rory Kinnear, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Ralph Fiennes, while Oscar winner Rami Malek plays the new film’s villain.
It is due to open in theatres in April.

American teen pop sensation Billie Eilish said on Tuesday she was honored to have been chosen to write and record the theme song from the upcoming James Bond film “No Time to Die.”
Eilish, 18, who wrote the song with her brother Finneas O’Connell, will be the youngest artist in history to take on the task, following in the footsteps of musicians like Adele, Madonna, and Paul McCartney, producers said in a posting on the official @007 Twitter account.
“No Time to Die,” the 25th film in the James Bond series, arrives in movie theaters in April with Daniel Craig resuming his role as the British secret agent for a fifth and final time.

Alternative pop star Eilish had a break out year in 2019, with hits like “Bad Guy” and “All the Good Girls Go to Hell,” and is nominated for six Grammy Awards later this month, including the top prizes: album of the year and best new artist.
“It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honour. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I’m still in shock,” Eilish said in a statement.

Eilish wrote and recorded most of her debut studio album “When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” with her brother Finneas, 22, in the small bedroom of their Los Angeles area home.
“Writing the theme song for a Bond film is something we’ve been dreaming about doing our entire lives,” Finneas said in a statement.
Adele’s theme song for 2012 Bond movie “Skyfall” won an Oscar, a Grammy and a Golden Globe award, while British singer Sam Smith’s song for “Spectre” took home the best original song Oscar in 2016.

Billie Eilish confirmed to perform James Bond theme for new movie
featured by
LOS ANGELES — American teen pop sensation Billie Eilish, fresh off her big Grammy Awards victory and an Oscar night performance, has released her much-anticipated official theme song to the forthcoming James Bond film “No Time to Die.”
The four-minute ballad, a haunting song of betrayal and despair co-written by Eilish and her older brother, Finneas, and performed to an orchestral arrangement, was posted on Thursday to YouTube and various music streaming sites.
The recording, itself titled “No Time to Die,” was produced by Finneas with a musical arrangement by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley. The track, released by Eilish’s Interscope Records/Darkroom label, includes veteran British session musician Johnny Marr on guitar.
Eilish, 18, becomes the youngest artist ever to write and record a James Bond theme song, following in the footsteps of such stars as Adele, Madonna and Paul McCartney.
The song’s foreboding lyrics more than suggest a romance that meets with a decidedly unhappy ending, as Eilish sings in a chorus:
“Fool me once, fool me twice/Are you death or paradise?
“Now you’ll never see me cry/There’s just no time to die.”
The movie “No Time to Die,” the 25th title in the James Bond motion picture franchise, is due to arrive in theaters in April, with Daniel Craig resuming his title role as the British secret agent for a fifth and final time.
Eilish is slated to perform the theme song live for the first time at the Brit Awards in London Feb. 18, ahead of the March 9 launch of her North American arena tour, Interscope said in a statement.
She had widely been expected to debut the Bond single at the Academy Awards show on Sunday, but she sang the Beatles’ “Yesterday” during the telecast’s in memoriam segment instead.
Two weeks earlier Eilish swept the Grammys by taking the four top prizes – best album, best record, song of the year and best new artist – becoming only the second musician to win all four categories on the same night.
Eilish wrote and recorded most of her debut studio album – “When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” – with her brother, Finneas, 22, in the small bedroom of their Los Angeles-area home.
The album, including such hits as “When the Party’s Over,” “Everything I Wanted” and “Bad Guy,” ranked as the No. 1 album of 2019.
