Sanguinetti... we don't really know much about. The information about him in the book is pretty limited if I don't remember incorrectly. Hard to say...
The Spang Brothers seem like the ideal choice. Big and powerful, and there's a potential to tie them up with crimes politics on a more global scale. Hammerstein is another villain I personally find very interesting.
Really, that many? Russians as main villains have been fairly rare. Far rarer than, say, evil businessmen.
Yes, I'd say so. You're right that they have rarely been the main villain of the story. But still, Russian generals is a pretty tired topic in Bond. We have had them in many different versions... I wonder what they'd do to make G stand out, especially considering the fact that he is such a stereotypical character in the first place. I always laugh a bit when I read about him in From Russia With Love. Its like Fleming uses every stereotype and clichéd caricature he could think of regarding the Russian intelligence system. :) Its pretty amusing to read, but wouldn't fit well in modern cinema.
I would not say that Russian generals as main villains have been used much in Bond movies, ironically enough. But they have been used ad nauseam in many, many, many action movies. Rogue Russian generals, even more so. Not talking about all the other generals and Medrano of this world... So he would need to stand out. I thought about making him a sort of Keyser Soze villain, someone nobody knows truly exists at first. Again, you can see the Blofeld influence in there too.
But anyway, when the Blofeld arch ends (it will end some day), they ca surely use General Grubozaboischikov, the Spangs, Buonaparte Ignace Gallia, etc. Ian Fleming did gave us more characters to use in upcoming movies.
Greetings. Long time no see.
Likewise. I do more lurking than posting these days, but I'm sure once SP comes out, I'll be on automatic mode.
all of them eventually
Agreed. All of them. Add Slugsy and Horror to the mix too.
They would need to change the name of the first. And maybe MR has been hacked to pieces too much, in too many movies. But I would love to see it too.
DON'T call it 007 in New York. Crappy title and makes me think of Hercules in New York ;)
Agreed. Sounds more like a cartoon. "Tintin in Tibet/Kongo/America (etc)", "Asterix in Rome/Brittain/America/Spain/Switzerland (etc)"....
It is the one title of Fleming I don't think fits a movie at all.
Too pulpy. Maybe if they were to make a proper b movie Bond like they did with say LALD. Otherwise no.
Great childhood memory.
