    A mix of both like GoldenEye. That was the perfect style/tone for Bond, it captured both sides without comprising either. I like Aaron Taylor-Johnson as James Bond, it may seem out there but he has the body for it and clearly a great actor. I think he has charisma since he outshined Brad Pitt in Bullet Train and was the only memorable presence.

    Remake goldeneye with Pierce Brosnan and a bunch of overweight women and have him make various quips about it and making them fatter

    Just see Bullet Train, a movie the new Bond was in, and notice how fun, lighthearted Bond can just as well be received in modern times or even John Wick. I'm sure the next reboot of Bond will take elements from those two to go forward. It's bound to have some Reddit humour but I'd take that over Craig, any day.

    ATJ is not suave or comfortable. Dude is a villain/character actor.

      Neither was Craig. I think he looked extremely good in a suit in Bullet Train and moved really well. He's the best choice, really. It's a compromise but it's either him or a black guy or a woman.

        Cavill is the honest and best choice.

          Perhaps but he's not in the race whatsoever, I have it in good authority. Aaron Taylor-Johnson is the only one being seriously considered (he's pretty much got the job but is hesitant) and Leo Suter was looked at but nothing more than that. It's a shame but if he was ever going to be Bond, it would be 2006.

            I don't believe you but it's a shame if true. Cavill has the Warhammer Amazon deal, it may have been part of a possible Bond deal.

              It's not. He's not in the age bracket they are looking for and Craig's age was a major headache for them in the past. They want someone who's in his early 30's, established but not a big mega star and recognizable like Cavill. Aaron Johnson fits their desire to the letter, he's the next James Bond. They're lookin at directors and writers, one name that comes up is Gareth Evans who did Gangs of London and some lower-tier BBC directors but just sorting through options. Don't ask how I know this or don't even believe me, you have every right. I am just putting it out there. They're holding off on Bond 26 due to the industry being in disarray and want to release the best possible movie or they'll suffer another loss like NTTD.

                And yet I still rather a Bond trilogy with Cavill.

                If he slimmed down, he'd be a picture perfect James Bond in the classic sense but I'm afraid that ship sailed since 2005. Even back when Craig left after Spectre, they were only considering for a short time Dan Stevens to replace him due to someone at EON seeing The Guest and forwarding his name.

    Casino Royale is the best bond, make it lower stakes with some sort of unique gimmick.

      Not the best but it was certainly a nice place to start.

      Both, an utterly ridiculous villain with a convoluted plot somehow woven into a realistic action thriller that makes you think this could be real.

      Tomorrow Never Dies, basically. That movie needed a bit more of a harder edge but still, it was a great movie.

    period (1960s); involve Bond in the various historical regime changes that the US CIA largely orchestrated
    This can be used as a means of exploring the postwar relationship between the US and UK, which is a rich backdrop
    If done right, it would still allow for, and in part celebrate, the brand of English provincialism and snobbery that Bond is about, and which typifies the national character, and Bond can be the unapologetically masculine super-agent he used to be
    the scenarios, and some of the dialogue, practically write themselves
    >CIA asks for a British agent to liaise with x in y country in order to not show their hand, and Bond is known as the best, blah blah
    >Felix Leiter gets made as a CIA operative anyway because of Shady Group of Villains and Bond has to come to his rescue while also using cool gadgets, driving an awesome car, and getting the girl

      This will never happen because it's kino. Best we'll get is a relatively woke free Bullet Train/John Wick type of James Bond movie with Reddit humour, crazy action and a neutered Bond who is not any kind of fun chauvinist.

      Checked. I actually like this idea. It's a good way to go back to the good old days of Bond. Cool gadgets, classic cars and the cold war is the perfect setting for true spy kino. It can be an actual love song to the golden era of Bond and Bond can actually be portrayed as a suave shagger using the excuse of it was a different time.

      Nah, being present day is a core part of Bond. New gadgets and technothrills are necessary.

        Disagree. Casino Royale which Cinemaphile would consider to be the best Craig movie didn't have anything of the sort. The coolest gadget in that movie was a defib. The issue with present day Bond is that people are used to having loads of tech. It's not a surprise or cool if a secret agent plants a tracking device on a car these days. Pretty much all the old gadgets are just normal consumer grade products nowadays. Trackers, worldwide communication, cameras, etc.
        The only thing Bond still has is modified cars and there's only so much a gun on an Aston can carry a franchise. That's why I think a period piece would be good. Hidden microphones and shit are much cooler when it's not just someone pressing record on their phone and putting it in their pocket.

          Your reasoning is sound but you forget that then they can't put product placement. Which makes a period piece idea 1000% impossible.

            and not him, but I've thought about this
            really it's not impossible; one just has to look for and include things that were available then and available now
            Bond can still enjoy Bollinger champagne, wear an Omega timepiece, stay at fancy hotels, eat at fine restaurants; and one could also reach out to companies that used to produce something and see if they'd want to make limited runs of some throwback products
            One only needs a small bit of imagination: maybe distinctive lamps, glassware, furniture, and drinks at someone's well-appointed home or office bar; gourmet coffee, cigars, lighters, handsome fountain pens with a Bond-esque gimmick, hand tools; dresses, lingerie, israeliteelry, swimwear and purses for the women, you get the idea
            it's about goddamn time we brought 'classy' back
