James Bond 25 could be called Shatterhand
It’s been alleged that the 2001 book Never Dream Of Dying by Raymond Benson will form the backbone of the latest 007 caper.
The film, according to The Mirror, has the working title Shatterhand, and opens with a police raid on a French movie studio that goes seriously awry.
From there, the adventure leads Bond to Croatia, where bosses have been spotted scouting for locatons.
“Bond scriptwriters feel it could be the perfect follow-up to Spectre,” a source told the paper of the upcoming blockbuster.

It had previously been implied that he would step down
