James Bond 24 Movie Release Date Delayed? New Scribes Tapped To Rewrite Script; Cast News Include Harry Potter Star Daniel Radcliffe As Villain.
Sony Pictures is actively working on James Bond 24 movie that is reportedly scheduled with a release date on Oct. 23, 2015.
However, veteran James Bond scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are now tapped to rewrite John Logan's script.
"Purvis and Wade have been asked to 'punch up' the script and sprinkle in more gags, emphasising the witty repartee between Daniel Craig's 007 and Naomie Harris's Miss Moneypenny, and focusing on the interplay between Bond and Ralph Fiennes's M," according to an article by The Daily Mail.

It will be interesting to see if Radcliffe can be a good Bond villain. Hard to see him beat Craig in the panache department.
Maybe the villain’s evil machinations include sabotage of the all merciful & good amnesty plan ?
But it has a happy ending with a Mass Gay Wedding.
The bad guy in the new James Bond is George Soros!
Harry Potter is the villain?
Well, I was very skeptical of Javier Bardem but I ended up liking his performance.
James Bond will have to cast quite the spell to be Harry, Harry Potter.
I like the idea that they want to “punch up” the repartee between Bond and Moneypenny and Bond and “M.” That’s always been an enjoyable hallmark of the franchise, and I’m glad the producers feel that way, too. I really like the Craig Bonds, but a little more humor certainly wouldn’t hurt!
They have already turned “M” into a woman, and Felix Leiter into a Black guy. I strongly suspect Bond would be a Muslim except the name just doesn’t sound Arabic.
Actually I haven’t even bothered to watch the last dozen or so Bond Movies. They basically have turned into cartoons.
I prefer the classic Bond films, myself.
Oh, I dunno...’Harry Potter’ may be able to pull this off. He looks very EVIL around the eyes, which will translate well on film.
He would need to pull off a Heath Ledger type of performance which unfortunately was “enhanced” by some of the finest pharmaceutical makers and cartel suppliers in the world.
LOL! I will wait and see. I like that pix of him, though. :)
Sorry wrong Lannister, that would be Tywin, lol.
Harry Potter as a Bond Villain...interesting.
Yeah, let’s hope they don’t do that. Xavier hitting on him was enough of a heebie-jeebies for me.
Radcliffe as a villain, though, yeah, I can see it. I saw picture of him muscled up. Maybe he will do a little man-to-man with Bond. I’m willing to give a chance, but then I really haven’t disliked a Bond movie yet (yeah, there are some not-so-great ones, but any time one comes on, there I am watching it).
Harry Potter as the villain ? Was Wil Wheaton unavailable ? This is a joke, right ? After nobody male villains in the post-Dalton era, they finally get Javier Bardem to step up (the first memorable villain since Robert Davi in “Licence to Kill”) and now they’re retreating to the equivalent of “Sesame Street” ?
Next, they’re going to say Radcliffe will be playing Blofeld. There’s really only one person who could play Blofeld, someone so utterly evil, criminal and reprehensible, and that is George Soros. He’d be the best Bond villain ever, born to play the role he’s acted throughout his miserable life.
That’s OK. I have no idea who you’re talking about, anyway, LOL!

I liked Sean Bean as Trevelyan (Goldeneye is one of my favorites but I still think it would have been better with Dalton), and Elektra in TWINE was a great villain, Robert Caryle was dreadfully boring but he was pretty much just her flunky, she was the main villain.
As I said I was surprised that I liked Bardem's performance, I never liked him. The first 2 Craig villains were zzzzzzzzzz. Maybe Potter can surprise us too?

Ha. I was thinking perhaps they should use Blofeld. He is supposed to be a master of disguise but turning into Harry Potter would be pushing it.
They turned into cartoons with the switch from Sean Connery. Even Lazenby's Bond was still okay.
What I'd really like is something along the lines of "The Man Who Would Be Bond" that was set during WWII, and showed the life of Ian Fleming (yes, it was most certainly embellished).
Make the original Bond stories, set in the original period of the books. Complete with nekkid women and all. The movies really were cartoonish compared to the books.
What's interesting to me, is that Daniel Craig is the Bond I see when reading the books when it deals with the cold, calculating, get-the-job done nature of the character. But Connery is the Bond I see when reading pretty much any of the banter with other characters, and the women.
If they could mix Craig's ruthlessness with Connery's charm, it would be perfect.
