    Ok im gonna give this a try following a bitt the idea of sex trafficking but slightly lighter approachand obviously i have Bond number 7 in mind.

    Pre Tittles seqeuence: Bond is on vacations but finds a woman screaming for help he goes, fights the man who was chasing that girl and kills him.

    End of pre tittles sequence.

    We get to see Bond again in the Casino and flirting with a very sexy woman as an homage to Dr No the exact same intro of Sean Connery they retire they sleep together and he is interrupted by a call from the office the scene goes pretty much like in tomorrow never dies with the Danish lessons.


    Next scene Bond gets to M's office flirts a little with MonneyPenny and the chat with M starts with that woman he rescued and talk about where she came from and Bond tells him from which organization she escaped and disscuss all the info he got.



    M sends him to Russia the heart of that organization to distroy it and save as man woman as possible. He gets his toys from Q and gets to his destination and hotel room.

    Once he gets there Bond Meets a very sexy CIA agent he seduces her and sleep together they disscuss why he came to that place blah blah blah.

    Next day he meets Felix and he tells Bond more about the Organization and introduces him to an agent with the exact same name of the woman he slept with right there Bond finds out he gave all the information to the wrong person.

    But that woman made some mistakes and still give valuable information so he goes to one of the houses where some victims are and one of the bad guys bond is there finds they fight Bond chasses him to interrogate him and mysteriously the man is shot. that woman Bond slept with reapears she gets Bond and we find out she is the mastermind of all that organization.

    Next day Bond is rescued by his Team Felix and the real Cia agent. After Bond recovers the woman tells him their new Plan where she will be taken going uncovered.
    Bond's First gadget appears a very small Gps which can applied anywhere she decides to put it in her skirt zipper and gives her his watch for any emergency.

    Next Day Bond receives a package from Q the keys of his beautiful and very well equipped Aston Martin which will serve as a cover to take the girl to that place that means Bond goes uncover as well as his pimp so he can meet the woman again but this time with a perfect plan to get her.

    They see each other again Bond finally interrogates her takes all the evidence of that organization then takes her as a hostage and goes to where her agent and all the victims are Bond threatens her bodyguards to free the girls or she will be killed.

    They listen but latter get into a fight the place explodes with the villans inside.
    Bond and The CiA agent manage to escape and send all the information with the importabt names to M.

    Final scene as an homage to From Russia with Love.
    Bond is in Italy with the agent in a Gondola making out.

    The end.

    "It was me James. It's always been me..."

    The much-awaited sequel to the SPECTRE thrillogy reveals that it's all connected. Blofeld purchased Skyfall to mess with Bond's mind back in 2012 and Kincaid was with him all along. Now Bond must hunt Kincaid across the globe to retrieve a secret YouTube password to prevent Blofeld from realizing his ultimate dream: rebuilding Skyfall with the Bond family insurance money and then blowing it up again.

    "James you are my brother from another mother. I killed you parents BTW. For England James?"
    "No for me"

    That sounds like a Greatest hits of Bond or Bond in autopilot. Rather than putting together some references to former Bond films they should have a good idea for a solid plot. An interedting Story, an interedting and charismatic villain with a serious Motivation (not one further uninspired revenge plot). All the details (gadgets, bond girls...) can be though of later.

    I think Andy Diggle, the author of the upcoming James Bond comic-book, has come up with the perfect plot for the new Bond film. The essence of the plot is brilliantly timely and would be a marvellous concept to build the new film around. Here's a quote from him:

    The comic begins with Bond assigned to hunt down “Kraken,” a radical anti-capitalist who has targeted the defense contractor replacing Britain’s aging Trident nukes. Needless to say, things get a little more complicated. The wider story is about Britain’s place in the post-Cold War, post-Brexit world. Are we still a global power? Do we even need nuclear weapons? Is 007 a force for positive change, or a protector of vested interests?

    Hammerhead is the name of a high-tech weapons system Britain is selling to allies with less-than-stellar human rights records. The question is, do the ends justify the means? The Cold War made that kind of moral evaluation much simpler—the Soviet Union and SMERSH were the enemy. Nowadays, Bond has to navigate a moral maze where even allies spy on each other.

    EON could simply pinch it or work with Niggle (a lot would depend on the quality of the comic and EON's ability to just use it as an impetus)

    Is that how Bond waves hello? :)

    I still think my idea of having Monique Delacroix (Dead M) in an affair with Mr White, many years ago, to birth Madeleine would be a thrilling twist, especially if Bond finds out by text or snapchat.

    I like the idea re the replacement for Trident, other potential plot lines are coming thick and fast. The use of foreign contractors to build our nuclear power stations is an interesting one, again , the background being a fading GB and the requirement to use foreign assistance.

    It still bugs me that we cant deal with the real enemy at the moment. I am working on a draft that involves SPECTRE funding a German chemical firm who produce a new liquid explosive that cant be detected by existing security equipment. So the implications are that terrorists (including Islamic State) will be assisted in their future work but not mentioned explicitly.

    " A new toy for naughty children to play with" and let the audience work out the implications.

    I hate the idea of Bond having to tackle ISIS. It would come across as right-wing nonsense if they took this route. Some kind of pro-Trumpian narrative about a white man travelling across the world to kill the crazy brown guys. No thanks.

    Furthermore, our troubled times allow for so many interesting and more nuanced stories to develop. For instance, just look at how good and timely Diggle's 'Hammerhead' story is.

  • I think there is a danger of it being a bit Team America but I think an Islamic terrorist villain could be interesting if done right (I posted an outline a few pages back for a modern adaptation of Moonraker, I updated the threat from Nazis to Islamic terrorism because I thought it was an interesting parallel, using post 9/11 paranoia rather than post WW2). Or they could feature in the plot somehow. For instance, I thought Blofeld's plan in Spectre was really clever and modern (to use terrorism to instill fear and paranoia and gain access to the world of constant surveillance that we live in) but I think more could probably have been done with it. It would've been interesting to have news reports of ISIS, for instance, claiming responsibility for the attack, and Blofeld describing to Bond how easy it was for all the pieces to fall together thanks to Daesh's desire for publicity and the constant fear and paranoia about terrorism among the public.

    Incidentally I was reading about the original scrapped outline for TSWLM, with Spectre being overthrown? I think that could make an interesting plot if Craig decides to return. I'd say Bond is back at MI6. Madeline can be mentioned often, it can be a sore spot that he avoids discussing, but I don't think she should appear. I think it should be explained as domestic life didn't agree with Bond (remember his nightmare about marriage in OHMSS? He was scared because despite the constant strain his job puts on him, the way it chews him up physically and emotionally, he does enjoy the excitement in his life, he's not someone who can take a desk job or settle down).

    Anyway, Blofeld is in prison and SPECTRE have been exposed. Many of their members have been arrested or killed, with Bond leading a manhunt for them for MI6 (ala the Nazi hunting spies in the 50s/60s) and they're struggling to regroup. They meet in secret to take account of their various assets and resources (Quantum, etc) but the meeting is stormed by a group of armed soldiers. This group would have members made up of several terrorist groups (Daesh, Boko Haram, etc) and the leader would be a Bane type figure: an anarchist who thinks the world is inherently flawed and wants to purge it. He doesn't believe in any of their causes, he's just bought them together in an attempt to cause global destabalisation. The terrorists are in on it because of what they stand to gain: access to Spectre's resources. So the worlds deadliest terrorist groups now have access to the financing, resources, secret bases, weapons, etc of the worlds biggest crime syndicate (as well as many others, Spectre members are likely made up of members of different organisations, as we saw in the novels and through how they had men inside Quantum). So the world is facing a terrorist threat on a scale they've never seen before. So MI6 resort to desperate measures, Bond has to team up with Blofeld and try to use his knowledge of Spectre (their safehouses, resources, etc) to track down the terrorists and the anarchist leading them, but Blofeld is a wild card. He goes with Bond, agreeing to help him (and during their interactions mocks him for how things worked out with Madeline, etc) but at the same time is still scheming and plotting his escape and revenge.

    So I think there are ways that Islamic terrorism could work. But at the same time, there's a reason Cubby ditched the original TSWLM idea. At the end of the day people come to Bond for escapism, not to be reminded of all that's wrong with the world.

    I don't often have good Bond related ideas, but an idea jut popped into my head that I love: a pair of siblings as main villains. One male, one female. And they are in love with each other.

    As much as I love Spectre, the end on the bridge does seem anti climatic. I'd like a direct sequel with Blofeld having escaped from prison. I'd like a steel toothed Michael Shannon or even Mr Hinx who we never saw die, freeing him, in a violent spectacular pre credits scene. Its then a couple of years later with Blofeld threatning the world with some diabolical plot, from his new lair, deep in the Australian outback. M Pleads with Bond to retake his 007 status and stop Blofeld. For the climax, I would like Bond to battle it out with Blofeld on the same mountains where Bond lost his parents. Daniel Craig, to return with Chris Walz returning.

    The 'Bond goes Formula One' idea:
    I've been also quite a fan of this prospect. Especially since the novel "Trigger Mortis" got published. It's partially based on Ian Fleming's "Murder On Wheels". And I actually think it's a wonderful title for a Bond film! We simply haven't had a Bond film yet that is entirely set in the lush, luxury and fast world of Grand Prix racing. Movies like:
    --> "Grand Prix" (1966, John Frankenheimer),
    --> "Le Mans" (1971, Lee H. Katzin),
    --> "Days Of Thunder" (1990, Tony Scott),
    --> "Michel Vaillant" (2003, Luc Besson),
    --> "Senna" (2010, documentary, Asif Kapadia), and....
    --> "Rush" (2013, Ron Howard)......
    treat this subject very nicely. And I do think "Rush" really is one of the highlights in this genre. Formula One car racing was also briefly a setpiece in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.".

    One could perfectly devise a plot in which a rogue "S.P.E.C.T.R.E."-member takes Formula One racing to serious and puts "S.P.E.C.T.R.E." too much in the spotlight. The actual man therefore needs to be eliminated in a cruel way....thus leading towards a new Bond adventure in which 007 goes on a plain, solid mission to find out what's happening. And obviously, the film is containing at least two very significant car chases.....in a Formula One car. And in that film 007 gets to race in such a car during a test driving presentation.
    saul-bass-grand-prix-title-sequence-21.jpg
    BTS-Grand-Prix.jpg

    As many Formula One racing tracks are located in wonderful, expensive places across the globe, we could have a Bond films with new, fresh exotic locations. Like for instance Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), Melbourne (Australia), Monza (Italy), Montmeló (Spain), Monte Carlo (Monaco) and Austin, Texas (United States of America). And I haven't even mentioned the pit stop girls, one of which could be developed into a fun and playful Bond-girl.


    Hopefully EON Productions will have a serious look at these two ideas ;-). I think Daniel Craig could then certainly be persuaded to come back after "SPECTRE".

    Has anyone actually read the latest Bond novel "Trigger Mortis" (based on a short story, Ian Fleming's "Murder On Wheels")? I really think this, and the above ideas, could result in one of the most original and unique Bond films.

    Like "OHMSS" is the 'wintersports-Bond film', "Thunderball" the 'watersports-Bond film' and "Casino Royale" the 'casino-Bond film', "Murder On Wheels" or "Trigger Mortis" really has it to become the 'racing sports-Bond film'. I think the racing sports milieu lends itself perfectly for the Bond universe. Movies like "Rush" and even "The Man From UNCLE" has shown that.

    So instead of Bond wearing a ski-suit or a diving-suit....

    Yes, Bond in a racing sequence has long been a favourite idea of mine. I think it would be a good way to do the "Bond/villain play a seemingly friendly game" idea again. Could have some fancy driving, and maybe Bond's car or the track is booby trapped.

    @phibes72 I like this idea. Simple, to the point, with references to Bond's past without being overwrought. I'd be on board this (I'd be on board any 007 adventure starring DC)

  • It's a nice idea but I'm not sure how you could make it the focus/theme of a Bond film in the same way as gambling in CR, the water in TB/TSWLM, etc. The villain's scheme would have to revolv
  • It's a cool idea on paper but I'm not sure how you could make it the focus/theme of a Bond film in the same way as gambling in CR, the water in TB/TSWLM, etc. The villain's scheme would have to revolve around it but I'm not sure how and I don't really like the idea of Bond himself driving an F1 car. They're too fragile to be involved in a proper out on the road car chase and while Bond himself becoming involved in a race could work, I think it'd stretch the limits of credibility due to how publicised F1 is (wouldn't be great for a secret agent to have his mission broadcast on channel 4 would it). Maybe it could work with something more low key and high society/exclusive, like some sort of classic car meet, but Bond hopping in an f1 car and speeding off to thwart a villain during a grand prix would be a bit too fan fictiony imo.

    I can however see a race making a great setting for a Bond film. Like Bond meeting a contact in the crowd at a grand prix and having to get him out of there, pursued by assassins, for instance. But I'm not sure if a film revolving around it would really work.

    Trigger Mortis was set in the 50s so it didn't really have the same problems as they'd have now. Plus even then, it isn't the whole book. The main threat comes later. And Fleming himself only came up with the story as the basis for a half an hour TV episode. Just isn't enough in the idea to sustain a whole novel or film plot imo. I think it'd make a good PTS or could be a mission that segues into the real story (ala the horse racing in AVTAK) but a film with it as the basis, like gambling in CR, water in TB, etc? You'd be struggling.

    Have you actually read "Trigger Mortis"? It's absolutely the finest post-Fleming, post-Benson, post-Gardner Bond novel ever. I suggest you read "Goldfinger" and after that "Trigger Mortis".

    Since The Broccoli's already openly used source material from Kingsley Amis' novel "Colonel Sun" in the 24th Bond film "SPECTRE", I wouldn't be surprised that EON is beginning to look more detailedly into adapting original non-Fleming Bond novels into a movie. And "Trigger Mortis" has it to do just that.

    If a very very old Bond novel, titled "Casino Royale", set in 1951, can be adapted perfectly into a modern film, then "Trigger Mortis", set in 1957, can do exactly the same.

    That was great, thanks for sharing. I especially liked Bond showing his car knowledge and his line, "I'm always tempted."

    I wrote a racing scene in some Bond fan fiction years and years ago. It went like this: Villain challenges Bond to a friendly race on a closed track using classic '60s cars. Bond borrows one of the villain's cars - it's rigged to emit a flame from the exhaust when the car exceeds a certain speed - a gimmick that gets crowds excited. The race itself is neck-and-neck until the end, where the final stretch of track is covered in explosive powder, which will be ignited by the exhaust's flame if Bond keeps up his speed. But Bond's going so fast that it's too late to stop. He decides to gun it and outrun the explosions behind him. Of course, this makes for a bumpy, dangerous ride. And if he were to try dropping speed, the explosions would follow his car even more closely. Ultimately the villain completes the lap, while Bond is forced to brake hard, lower his speed dramatically, and come in second place. The whole thing boils down to a thinly-veiled attempted on Bond's life. "Track could use a sweep," he says, then walks off the track.

    Now, I don't know if the flame exhaust idea makes even a whiff of sense, but I thought it was a fun idea at the time. Still do.

    Yes, I have read Trigger Mortis. Which is why I addressed it in my post and pointed out how even then it wasn't the main plot, the stakes aren't high enough to sustain a whole novel, just like it wouldn't be to sustain a whole film in order to create a "racing" Bond film (in the same way that TB is the underwater one, etc). Plus even in Trigger Mortis it tests the limits of credibility a bit that MI6 even got involved. Like I said it's difficult to think of a justifiable way to revolve a story around it. And while it worked there (but again, wasn't the main plot/threat), modern Formula 1 is a whole different beast (whereas gambling in a casino, that's timeless, they just had to modernise the villains). I'm open to credible solutions to these problems and story ideas for how you could revolve a whole film around it, rather than just say a PTS or a section of a Bond film.

    And what part of my post made you assume I hadn't read Goldfinger or all the Fleming novels in fact? There's no need to talk down to people and act all smug and superior just because they're not 100% onboard with your ideas. And you seem to have ignored the points I made as well as my own suggestions for how they could utilise a grand prix or other racing setting (I still think Bond himself racing is a bit much, and that you couldn't revolve a film around it, but like I said I'm happy to read suggestions from you of how to do it instead of just shutting me down and making out I don't know what I'm on about).

    The same problem was always there with the novel "Casino Royale". The stakes weren't high enough....or long enough to make a 144 min movie out of it. The entire story of the novel was adapted with around 90 mins of screentime. But everything that came before and after, was all made up. Paul Haggis, Neal Purvis & Robert Wade....more or less 'faithfully extended' the rather short story in "Casino Royale".

    It can be done with "Trigger Mortis" too. The stakes can be made much higher by letting a high stakes (Formula One) race be a prelude to something much bigger (atomic weapons, biological warfare). It's so easy.

    Thanks for the interest, I have not posted it yet, still tweaking but will do soon. (dont want to distract from the thread).

    I think basing a whole movie within F1 is perhaps a strain. But with classic cars fetching millions and now regarded in the same circles as collectable art, it seems fair to have a villain who collects very rare and expensive classics (both for his ego and a sound financial investment). Its also a very glamorous World so Bond would feel very much at home. Many of these auctions are held at locations such as Silverstone or Le Mans so it fits in IMHO. Many Bond movies have a scene where Bond has an early "joust" with the villain plus we can also have the element of gambling. So, all in all, a "winner takes the cars" , single lap challenge seems to be a good fit IMHO. Plus it allows a reference to the heady days of DB5s etc without being too based in the past. See below, Bond just fits right in.

    (BOND THEME)

    Bond: "Q... is that you?!"

    (BOOM... BOOM... BOOM BOOM BOOM

    Q: "Ahh... 007. So glad you could make it."

    (BOOM BOOM BOOM)

    Q: You tried to ruin my life. Get me fired with getting M killed in Scotland against my promising career in espionage and doing your dirty work against Mallory. Now, I ruin yours."

    Daniel Craig is Ian Fleming's James Bond 007 in
