...psst. It comes out in 2012 (nudge nudge)
Sounds a bit kitchy. How about a motorcycle chase *alongside* the Great Wall, possibly with the villain on the Wall itself and Bond having to neogitate difficult and dangerous terrain just to keep up?
Welcome back Dickey Beer ?? (Dutch stunt supervisor of AVTAK / Tomorrow Never Dies / Tomb Raider 2 / Peking Express ;-) )
I am all for it - should be interesting...... hopefully it doesn't involve lunacy and handcuffs like TND lol.
That was actually a great chase in my opinion, and the whole handcuff thing really added to the scene rather than detract, but I can see where you are coming from. Bond and Wai Lin arguing over who drives or what to take in the first place is really out of place, and coming after that cringe-worthy banner free-fall, erg!
..i agree with you.... everything is speculation and rumors until official statements are made... but it would be nice to see these locations all in one Bond film - especially China..
EON - 'doing deals with villians' (a la QofS) in this case is not a good thing.
I prefer if they would stay in Europe and tear up Paris, London and good old Berlin.
Only four-ish months until filming begins, then we should know a lot more and everywhere the crew plan to head for this film.
But China India south Africa and obviously London not bad.. Not Bad at all.
Look at the fight on top the cable car in Rio... The whole scene felt epic. During the roof chase in Sienna, the nano-second cuts and shaky cam didn't help to appreciate the scenery. It actually completly destroys the purpose of globe-trotting and scenery that Bond movies should advertize.
Your argument was that Bond23 would be a 'total disaster' if they used all of those locations (which of course is highly unlikely). Now you have turned it round to mean QOS.
You can't make such assumptions about a film that hasn't begun filming. Locations will be scouted all around the globe, it doesn't mean they will film at all these places.
And the shakey cam was a technique Marc Forster used. It doesn't mean the next director will adopt the same style.
Wait and see.
And yes, there's only one location really confirmed, which is India. The others will likely not even feature in Bond 23.
Not to mention to real colours of South America. The colours of the desert, the hubbub of La Paz, the indigenous villagers in the Atacama. It gave the film a scale and sweep that made it epic.
Nobody does it better then Bond... It didnt for me. The whole city became an obstacle course which has always been a Bond trait. You must admit the opening shots of The Palio were sumptuous and him slipping and sliding over the terracotta roofs were very Bond.
But please tell me more about how I might use my time and talent to perfectly match your unique sensibilities.
