Filmmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga has pitched an concept for a brand new ‘James Bond’ film to producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson and instructed that he could be up for a return to the franchise.
Asked if any concepts made it into ‘No Time To Die’, Fukunaga instructed Slash Film: “Nothing from that meeting. I mean, I still have a pitch I would do if I had to reboot it, which I’ll keep for myself right now.”
Cary Joji Fukunaga, who changed Danny Boyle in ‘No Time To Die’ when the ‘Trainspotting’ helmer left resulting from artistic variations, continued: “But this was a very clear slate. In September of 2018 I used to be simply listening to everybody, what was working, what wasn’t working, what they needed, what they hoped for, and simply needed to sit with that and check out to determine how you can flip that right into a story.
“Inevitably, things seep in, things you’ve tried before and other stories that didn’t work, but you’re just looking for that place that it could fit, you know? I kind of think of it like spare furniture, but it very much came out of those meetings in September, and then went on until we finished shooting.”
The movie accommodates a dramatic single-take motion sequence and Cary Joji Fukunaga stated that it was a problem convincing Craig as he’s a “perfectionist” throughout stunt scenes, stories femalefirst.co.uk.
He stated: “Daniel’s a perfectionist, so he desires each punch, each shot, all the pieces simply to be, on a bodily degree, flawless.
“But it comes from his desire, which I share, to make sure that when people watch, there’s no suspension of disbelief issues, no doubts that those aren’t real hits landing, or himself taking hits.”
