Is 'Shatterhand' the Official Title of Bond 25?

Industry Magazine Production Weekly reports that the upcoming BOND 25 officially has a working title: SHATTERHAND.

Of course, as outlets such as BBC have noted, it's possible that this is still just a circulating rumor, but it's possible that the latest installment in the secret agent series could be dubbed with the name, especially considering that the name is an alias used by supervillain Ernst Blofeld in Ian Fleming's 1964 novel 'You Only Live Twice'. It's also worth noting that Bond titles have a tendency of referring to body parts, such as the previous entries GOLDFINGER and GOLDENEYE. Whatever the case, let's just hope the movie gets made in time for its swiftly approaching April 8th, 2020 release date.

What could this possibly mean for the franchise? Will the latest supervillain in the 007 saga be the one to finally "shatter" James Bond for good? Possibly, when one considers the fact that this is most likely Daniel Craig's last time up at bat for the titular role.

As previously reported, Scott Z. Burns (THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM), a.k.a. Hollywood's renowned script doctor has been hired to rewrite the screenplay that Neal Purvis and Robert Wade originally penned, hoping to wrap up the story entirely within the next four weeks. Burns is currently stationed in London, typing away, while MGM waits patiently for the writing guru to work his magic as quickly as possible. TRUE DETECTIVE helmer Cary Fukunaga stepped in to direct once Danny Boyle exited the project, and Craig will return to reprise his famous role as the smooth talking, woman seducing, world saving suit and tie character we all know and love.
