"The Spy I Loved", Fanfilm based on "The Spy Who Loved Me"

So yeah, me and my good friend @fromarvidwithlove have decided to do something we've been talking about for a long time! This summer we will release our version of Fleming's novel "The Spy Who Loved Me". The title is "The Spy I Loved" (don't hold it against us) and it's a non-profit project. We will keep you guys posted and I'll make sure to come back with some details of the plot!

    Brilliant, cannot wait to see it! :D
    Best of luck with the production!
  • Thank you @clarkdevlin :)
    Risico sounds very interesting! Where can I find the thread??
  • I would like to point out that "The Spy I Loved" won't be based on the movie "The Spy Who Loved Me" nor any other of the James Bond-movies! We will be doing our own version of Bond and we will change as little as possible from the novel. This is a project we are doing in the memory of Ian Fleming and a tribute to the 007-franchise!

    So will this be a period piece?

    Do you mean if it will be made during a long period of time? In that case, no. It will be take around two weeks to shoot, since we have other film-projects to take care of aside. This is simply a hobby-project that we want to make because we love the Bond-films :)
    But ofcourse we will put our hearts and souls in the project, giving it all our attention and force during the making :)

    Period piece means a film that is set in a period of time other than the present. So if your film is set in the 1960's it would be a period piece.
  • Oh, I see! In fact, I knew that was the correct meaning all along, I just wanted to see if you knew it...

    The answer is yes. The film will be set in the 1960´s, the time the book takes place.
  • And so we begin with the final draft

    Very excited about this - as much as I love how Bond keeps with the times it's sad that we never get a vintage piece (and there has only been a handful of Bond films that stick close to the material at all!)
  • @OnlyManWhoCan We're going to stay as close to the novel as possible, that's the whole point of the project. I've already received questions if we are to make more of them, like Moonraker or You Only Live Twice.

    @fromswedenwithlove That's good to hear - it's a good story to start with too as it's very low key and unconventional. MR and YOLT require a great many more locations etc. Plus the official series would never tackle the short story so it will be good to see this :)
  • @OnlyManWhoCan Exactly! Here's a little something to keep you all interested! Stay tuned for more!

    First time I've been on the forum in ages and saw this thread. Looks like an interesting project and, speaking as someone who spent years on the old forum trying to do a Moonraker adaptation with no success, I'm glad to see that there's still interest in adapting some of the "unused" Fleming stuff. Hope the project is still in the works as I'd love to see it!
