James Bond's 25th adventure could be titled Shatterhand, and may take Daniel Craig to Croatia
Now that it's been confirmed Daniel Craig will reprise his character of James Bond in the next 007 adventure, mirror.co.uk has reported the iconic British spy will travel to Croatia for the film, titled Shatterhand.
According to the report, this 25th Bond film of the successful franchise will be based on Raymond Benson's 2001 novel Never Dream of Dying. The author also has books like Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day to his credit. The producers of the film reportedly feel that this film would be a good follow-up to Spectre.
"James Bond, 007, finally comes face to face with his most cunning nemesis — the enigmatic blind criminal mastermind behind the sinister organisation known only as the Union," reads the synopsis of the novel on amazon.com. 007 also gets entrapped in a romantic liaison with the criminal's wife, Tylyn Mignonne, who is a successful film star. One clue leads to another and Bond takes off on yet another nail-biting adventure.
Not just Croatia, but other locations like Japan and southern parts of France are being considered, reports Independent.
Although Craig's inclusion in the film as the lead is almost certain, the hunt for a director is still on. Earlier Firstpost had reported that filmmakers Yann Demange, Denis Villeneuve and David Mackenzie were being considered to helm the project.
The previous Bond films featuring Daniel Craig were directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, 2006), Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace, 2008) and Sam Mendes (Skyfall, 2012 and Spectre, 2015). The upcoming film will be written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who have also written all the above Bond movies.
The new film is slated to release on 8 November 2019.
