Demange made a big name for himself with the thriller "71", after which he was invited to lead the shooting of White Boy Rick starring Matthew McConaughey. And if most journalists agree that the ideal choice would be Villeneuve , which is able to equally pay attention to action, heroes and plot, then some sources write that it is Demange is a priority for EON bosses. This is also due to the fact that Villeneuve planned to make his next project a new version of "Dunes" .
Daniel Craig is expected to return to the role of Agent 007 , and Bond producers won't have to find a replacement. The script for " Bond 25 is being handled by Robert Wade and Neil Purvis, but EON has not yet decided on the owner of the franchise distribution rights.
