Is an italian director in the mix to direct Bond 25?

Italian newspaper “Il Messaggero” reported today that italian director Paolo Sorrentino could be in the mix to direct the new untitled Bond installment, set to be released in North America the 8th of November 2019.

Oscar winning Sorrentino is currently set to film the second season of the critically aclaimed tv series “The Young Pope”, well, sort of: HBO recently announced that they are going to produce a limited series called “New Pope”, making it higlhy unlikely for tv series star Jude Law.

Now Sorrentino seems to be in the mix to direct Bond 25, the day Yann Demange has reportedly been spooted at EON headquarter, making his nomination more likely. Sorrentino in the past said he would have been interested in directing a Bond movie.

Bond to battle blind supervillain in Bond 25

Mirror claims to have major news about Bond 25 development.

In this article the British newspaper explains that, as previously said, Croatia will be one of the locations to be seen on the next installment of the most beloved spy of Her Majesty’s secret service.

But far more than that the Mirror implies two potential opposite things: based on their sources the movie has the working title “Shatterand” but, opposite to what we all would thinks, ir seems we won’t have a proper Fleming’s “You only live twice” adaptation.

They say, in fact, that this is nothing more than a working title, and that the two long leading screenwriters, Purvis and Wade, are basing the movie on 1999 Benson’s Never Dream of Dying.

It begins when a police raid goes horribly wrong, killing innocent men, women, and even children. Bond knows the Union is behind the carnage, and vows to take them down once and for all. His hunt takes him to Paris, into a deadly game of predator and prey, and a fateful meeting with the seductive Tylyn Mignonne, a movie star with a sordid past, who may lead Bond to his final target—or his own violent end. Eventually it leads him to the Union’s latest attack on society, which involves Tylyn’s husband, Leon Essinger, and his new movie, Pirate Island, which stars Tylyn. (Source:Wikipedia)

Of course, it seems they are revising the plot to close Craig’s tenure as Bond, adapting it by putting Waltz’s Blofeld in the mix.

We’ll see if some of these news will become reality.
