    Questions to all of the people participating: when thinking of a title, do you first imagine the tone of the film, then fit a title to that?

    Do you think of tone, and a basic story, then a title?

    Or jump straight to a title that sounds Bond-like?

    Both of those ways and more. Sometimes we riff of eachother, make spy titles relating to current events and even make funny ones. I guess we also pull titles from the aether from you know who.

    It's mostly thinking up a title that sounds Bond-like. That's the main compulsion for me anyway. The other points made by @DewiWynBond apply too of course. Sometimes I read something or hear something on the TV or radio and it inspires a title too. I think my favourite one of those I've suggested outside of the continuation Bond titles I've suggested (and the few remaining Fleming titles) is Love Lies Bleeding.

    For me @peter I'm shopping in a book store - what catches my eye? That's the type of titling. I do often, for the good ones, go a little deeper on a personal level, but rarely share. But I've pitched like, Bond in a wedding as "The Best Man" etc. before.

    Very cool, @DewiWynBond , @Dragonpol , @LucknFate .... You guys are very creative, by the way! I enjoy reading all the suggestions, and there are very many viable "Bond-sounding" titles...

    I don't really think of a plot, more just on a general thought what might be in the film, or just an incling on something that makes sense.

    Allthough the Heidelberg title came straight from Blackadder (a fate worste than a fate worse than death, that's pretty bad!).

    So, sometimes my brain just wires everything together.

    "Spy on wire"

    could be a title (from the film 'man on wire')


    "Spying on the edge" (thank you Aerosmith).

    That's a nice question @peter I think it's a bit of everything you mentioned.
    @peter I thought I ask something similar. Have you ever incorporatetd Bond ideas into your script? I don't mean ripping off exact Bond scenes, but creating original Bond tropes into your script and giving your script a Bondian title.

    Thanks for replying, @CommanderRoss . I like the way your brain thinks!!

    @SecretAgentMan⁰⁰⁷ thanks for answering, and thanks for the question. The answer from me is: all the time!! I'll pepper scripts with a few lines I've loved from the series... For example, there's a script I had that made a splash on the festival competition circuit, and it won a bunch of prizes (and we are closing in on a director), and a crooked cop sells my protagonist a bunch of weaponry. As he packs all of these killing machines (now in silver cases), into the trunk of her car, he says to her, "there you go. Everything for a woman going on holiday"...

    I've been inspired by villains, or action sequences that I turn into my own... But yes, 007's DNA can be found in my work, 😂!!!

    That's impressive @peter :) As a Bond fan, I expected you would.

    One of my favorite plays... @Dragonpol is this the villain speaking (and does he have a deformity of his spine?)?

    EDIT: 😂 😂 😂 @DewiWynBond !! Although I lifted a line from Bond, my script isn't a spy-thriller... It's called THE WITCH-HUNTER and it's been described as BLADE meets KILL BILL (but I do like your title, and the humour in it as well!!)...
