Bond 25 will follow same Casino Royale story arc
"In terms of what I can bring to change the character, Bond is on a character arc that started with Casino Royale, and I will be carrying that on. There will be changes, I am sure," Fukunaga told The Inquirer. "As in any story, a character has to change in order [to have] a narrative."
Fukunaga was a bit more guarded on whether Christoph Waltz and Ben Whishaw will be back to play Blofeld and Q respectively.
"We haven’t finished the screenplay, so there is no way that anyone could know that," he said. "Those are two extraordinary actors, so if there is space for them in the story, I would absolutely want them there. But I don’t know yet what it’s going to be."
Fukunaga added that he was a big fan of the "vulnerability and humanity" Craig had added to Bond in Casino Royale, so it's a fair bet that there'll be a bit more of that in Bond 25. Anything else to add, Cary?
"Yeah, there will be the things in the Bond-verse that you have come to expect. I can’t say too much, though."
