Not as far as I'm aware mate. I know nothing about the book other than it's written by Mark Salisbury, who did a great making of NTTD book
I said it before, I think it's a chicken and egg thing: they will get general ideas and will try to find an actor fitting them, but changing the project if necessary to fit the new Bond actor.
Yes. Arguably they sort of did it with Craig (considering Henry Cavill got so close I get the sense they were initially leaning more into the noticeably younger Bond angle).
The finished film refers to Bond as a kid in one scene, which I find amusing.
I was thinking the same.
Also I think you guys are awesome
I might be drunk
We haven't had drunk posting here in ages since @Baltimore_007's time.
We love you too.
My mistake. During the scene in question when Bond is poisioned, the doctor says “the kit has amphetamines...” I thought he said kid. Looked it up in the script. Apologies 😅
And this is why I never thought the idea of re-hiring Brosnan for a fift Bond was a serious idea, at least not once the project was CR.
No, having him certainly wouldn't have worked. Quentin Tarantino of course had his idea for CR with Brosnan as Bond, although it sounded absolutely terrible.
:)) Glad you’re enjoying your holiday mate. And if someone wants to start a fan petition to get @peter writing the next one then I’d definitely sign it.
I don't know what book Tarantino had been reading when he said Bond in the novel killed Vesper and considered Uma Thurman in the role. Or maybe he read CR drunk.
I hope this is the next great Brosnan film.
He does look good. I could easily seem him playing Bond again, although an older version of Bond.
I never knew that was something he was planning on in his film. I know he said after the 2006 film came out that he refused to watch it because he was annoyed that the producers hadn't consulted him about rebooting the series with CR... Ok Quentin...
To be fair to him, the scene with Michael Fassbender at the bar in Inglorious Basterds is wonderfully Fleming-esque, but I just don't think he'd be the right fit. A Casino Royale adaptation with an ageing Brosnan just doesn't sound appealing to me however.
Because we’ve just had three films with an older Bond, that really leant into the idea. I’ve always liked the idea of an old man Bond one off with Dalton or Brosnan, but I think the moment for that has passed now. Would have worked if Craig left earlier but right now I reckon they need to go younger.
Yeah I think they need to grow the next generation of audience now, I'm not sure many kids who caught NTTD would be desperate to see any more Bond films.
I guess I just don’t agree that it’d feel very new. It’s Bond past his prime again, with an actor we’ve seen before. Even if he’s significantly older, we’ve just seen him in retirement, and we saw him struggle with the physical stuff in SF, so I’m not sure what new ground there is for them to cover there.
I do think they’re in a bit of a tough spot with that. Because on the one hand, there’s that demographic crisis brewing, not that many young people being into it. But on the other hand, would trying too hard to appeal to them risk alienating some of the older fans they already have? I think it could be a tricky balancing act for them to pull off, satisfying both those audiences. Other blockbusters manage it, but they don’t have the history that Bond does, and I think a lot of fans have certain expectations as a result of that history. I just hope they don’t play it safe personally.
