Sources Imagine A Controversial New James Bond Spinoff Movie Might Quickly Be Made


James Bond wants no introduction: over 50 years, the well-known MI6 agent has appeared in 25 movies portrayed by twelve completely different actors, every of which has taken Bond all over the world with a core group of recurring characters. Now it appears a type of characters could also be getting a spin-off of their very own.

No less than, that’s the hope of actress Naomie Harris, who portrays Moneypenny within the Daniel Craig led 007 movies. Naomie has portrayed Moneypenny as a spy in Skyfall earlier than reverting to the position sometimes related to Moneypenny in Spectre. However you already knew that.

Extra apparently, in keeping with comingsoon.web, Naomie has been approached by Moonlight director Barry Jenkins to star in her personal movie. Naomie even set Barry up with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli to debate the chance.

“I received him along with Barbara, and so they had somewhat dialogue, however nothing’s occurred up to now, however you by no means know.”

If the movies tackled Ms Moneypenny in a spin-off it will be nice to see her as a 00 agent, reasonably than a secretary. We’d a lot want to see her journey the world and capturing on the dangerous guys. Hopefully, her aiming has gotten higher since Skyfall.

Bond followers are notoriously towards the character turning into a feminine, so possibly a Moneypenny spin-off is one of the simplest ways to introduce a feminine spy with out altering the core character (though it will undoubtedly be controversial). However is she one of the best spinoff route for 007? There are various different characters from Bond’s previous additionally worthy of a stand-alone franchise.


M has been beside 007 because the starting, but it was solely with Dame Judi Dench in Skyfall that we actually received to study extra about her. Dame Judi was the primary M to outlive a bond recasting, however her story has been accomplished. If a spin-off takes off it ought to concentrate on the brand new M as performed by Ralph Fiennes. The Shakespearean actor has solely appeared in two Bond movies (along with his third within the yet-to-be-released No Time To Die). However how did his character get to be M? Absolutely he was a spy beforehand and a spin-off might act as prequel for the character. Hollywood has the know-how to de-age the fifty-seven-year-old actor and he’s no stranger to prequels with a starring position within the Kingsman prequel, The King’s Man.


Regardless of disappearing from the more moderen movies, Q has appeared in 21 (quickly to be 22) of the Bond movies. The Quartermaster was performed by Desmond Llewelyn till the actor’s dying in 1999. Since then he has been performed by John Cleese and extra not too long ago Ben Winshaw. Given how younger the present actor Ben is, a spin-off might concentrate on Q creating an AI that activates MI6 and solely he can cease it. Or do the standard “analysts turns into a spy though they by no means signed up for it” sort gig. It may very well be a refreshing tackle the style and given how darkish and moody Daniel Craig’s Bond is it may very well be good to have a extra light-heartened spinoff.

Felix Leiter

Barely extra obscure is Felix Leiter, James Bond’s CIA counterpart. Most not too long ago performed by American actor Jeffrey Wright, Felix has typically performed extra of a back-up position to Bond. He continuously offers the British spy with experience, tools and within the case of On line casino Royale, cash. It has been famous by Bond students – sure that’s an actual factor – that Leiter was written as a “nonentity as a bit of characterization … he, the American, takes orders from Bond, the Britisher, and that Bond is consistently doing higher than he.” Nonetheless, if given his personal film, it may very well be an opportunity to create a extra comedic (American) tackle James Bond. Leiter is ready to seem in No Time To Die so it might be the appropriate time to offer him a spin-off.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld

Villian motion pictures are all the fad (simply have a look at The Joker). Blofeld is the pinnacle of the legal organisation SPECTRE and is taken into account to be Bond’s archnemesis. The final movie, Spectre, revealed him to be *spoiler alert* the person behind each villain that Craig’s Bond had confronted. He’s in jail by the top of the movie however a spin-off might simply see him escape and even do a prequel of his rise to be quantity considered one of a worldwide legal organisation. Christoph Waltz is a terrific villain as he has proved time and time once more. Little question he alone would make watching this spin-off price it.

With Daniel Craig’s tenure set to finish subsequent 12 months with the discharge of No Time To Die possibly now could be the proper time to look into the again catalogue and discover a spin-off alternative.
