What makes you think that's what they'll name it?
Well, if that's the case...
Also I would love for Bond 24 to be Risico
I never claimed anything as fact... it is an observation or guess.. all we have to go on at this point. Its my feeling.
The play is great too. Different, but great.
and what does she say?
It's great to see this film being talked about as an entity at last.
As for Bond 24, not much was said other than Sam Mendes is the key to following on from the success of SF.
Haven't watched the video, does she actually mention this or are you assuming? I wouldn't be surprised if a black Bond was cast in the future. The series could potentially go on forever so I'd be more surprised if it didn't happen at some point.
A female Bond will never happen and that's a good thing too.
Personally I don't mind either way. If the character remains white for the rest of his time on screen then I'm fine with that. If his race eventually changes then I'm fine with that too. It's not something I think needs to happen but I'd be happy if it did.
If anyone wants a Black, Asian, Latino, or Jewish "Bond," then just create a new novel or film series.
They didn't make a new series when they turned the character into a one liner spouting gadget wielding playboy, or a short blonde muscular man, or an Irish action hero, etc. None of the actors really look like Flemings Bond anyway.
Ian Fleming's concept of Bond's character was changed a long, long time ago. After all the change he's been through up until now, I don't think changing Bonds race would be that big a deal. I'm not a "PC head", I'm just looking at things logically. If you're a Fleming purist then fine but if you like the cinematic Bond, and if all these other changes they've made to the character are fine, why is changing his race such a massive issue?
Basically, if you don't want a black Bond because that's not what Fleming wrote him as then fair enough, but don't turn around after that and talk about how brilliant Roger Moore or Pierce Brosnan was or how you want more gadgets and OTT stuff in Bond 24.
As far as Bond 24, it just feels like it's time we got thrown some actual real news. I feel a little impatient now. Any genuine news, no matter how small, would be welcome ("Hey! The same catering company is coming back!"). Well, maybe not that small. I am assuming Deakins will be on board - but oh how I want that confirmed.
I know things play out along the same lines as with some previous Bond films, as to when things are announced; I'm just getting a tad grumpy now. I'd really like to hear something soon that is not a rumor.
That's true, and really cool, now that I think about it. And it's been over a year since Skyfall was released. How the time flies!
Barbara Broccoli honoured on Jan. 19
The Hobbit: The Desolation of SmaugSUNDAY, 1:00 PM: As Sony touted that it had passed the $3 billion worldwide mark this weekend with $1.9B internationally to add to its already hefty $1.119B domestic take, all eyes internationally were on Warner Bros.
I agree, I think they would make for good scenes. Even if Bond drinking schnapps in the snow did come across as "jokey" it would still work but just as a comedic scene.
In terms of when he's sitting in Queen Mary's rose garden (I went and sat in this exact place a few years ago and drank a couple of beers :) ) he would have to either be drinking or there would be some dialogue regarding Bond wanting a drink in 2 hours time.
Sorry I miss that.
When, Why, What???
Thanks! Expecting lots of interviews then...
