The 25th official James Bond film to be released in November 2019 has a working title of Shatterhand with Daniel Craig as 007 agent.
The new James Bond film is based on book Never Dream Of Dying by US author Raymond Benson, who also wrote Bond books Tomorrow Never Dies, Die Another Day and The World is Not Enough.
‘Bond scriptwriters feel it could be the perfect follow-up to Spectre. They are hoping to film in Croatia next year,’ Mirror source said.
The insider said producers had been furious when a local mayor Andro Vlahušić revealed earlier this year they had been scouting for locations in the coastal tourist hotspot of Dubrovnik, Mirror UK reports.
David Craig accepted to return for ‘his fifth stint in the series despite declaring he would rather slash (his) wrist than play the secret agent again’ and stated ‘if he did another Bond movie it would be only for the money’.
‘Bond 25 will be released in the US on 8 November 2019, with a slightly earlier release in the UK and the rest of the world. The film is set to be produced by Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. Skyfall, Craig's third Bond film, became the highest-grossing film of all time in the UK after its release in 2012, but it has since been toppled by Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ BBC News reports.
Are you familiar with the story of Dusko Popov?
Dusko Popov spends his childhood in Dubrovnik. Later on, he becomes the triple agent with bags full of money, great spy skills, and famous girlfriends. Sounds familiar?
'It was just another night of tension, smoke, and gambling in Lisbon, the spy capital of WW2 when Ian Fleming saw Mr. Popov. In the company of ladies in smuggled shiny dresses, spirits and money, he was winning easily.
Some Lithuanian hot shot was bragging with unlimited stakes. Popov got tired of it, took out his bag of money and slammed it over the table. In shock, the Lithuanian retired without protest.'
