Edgar Wright and Jean-Marc Vallée Possibly In The Running To Direct ‘Bond 25’

Published

The as-yet-untitled 25th James Bond film has lost its director. EON and MGM are looking for a unique director to make this Bond film a success compared to its predecessor Spectre. The names currently topping the list are Edgar Wright and Jean-Marc Valiée, who both certainly qualify as unique.

Edgar Wright Is The Safest Choice

The most recent Bond films have attempted to harken back to the older films with a sense a humor that was lacking in the early Daniel Craig films. Edgar Wright is the perfect man to add a sense of comedy to the James Bond franchise while still maintaining the realistic tone that Craig’s tenure has had. Just look at his most recent success Baby Driver.

His penchant for visual comedy while maintaining a character-driven story is what Bond 25 needs. Also, take into account his skill with editing to a beat, and you will have a very visually striking and unique Jame Bond film.

Jean-Marc Valiée Is In Keeping With The Style Of Previous Films

The past few Bond films were directed by Sam Mendes, who was well known for making art films with little action. Jean-Marc Valiée is very similar. His films, such as Dallas Buyers Club, are well regarded by the Academy as they have won several Oscars. His directing style, however, would be a bit different from what came before.

Valiée is well known for foregoing standard filming conventions such as rehearsals. He instead wants a more natural performance via improvisation from both the actors and the camera. This would give Bond 25 what it needs to keep the tone of the previous Craig films but still do something new.

Will The Film Be Pushed Back?

Before Danny Boyle left Bond 25 due to creative differences, filming was supposed to begin in December with the film debuting in November 2019. With the director change and EON looking for a writer to do some rewrites on the script, this is looking less likely.

Whoever is given the director’s chair for Bond 25, the best we can hope for is a film that is better than the mediocre-at-best Spectre. Daniel Craig deserves a spectacular send off to his time as the famous British spy—something that gives Casino Royale or Skyfall a run for its money.
