Discuss the new James Bond film in this thread.
martin campbell is directing....
hmm thats about all for now...
hugh jackman for bond!
We also know it's going to be to James Bond what Batman Begins is to the Batman Quadrilogy.
we will see..bond was still pulling massive numbers although the storys were rubbish..
No, I mean it's going to be a restart of the franchise.
Damn i figured this meant new news there's nothing to disscuss until an actor is signed
Martin Campbell is directing
It's gonna be shot in prague and Africa
He will drive either an Aston Martin DB9 or some Fiat hatchback
Rumoured car: Fiat Panda
i know,i was just saying that Batman needed a restart..bond could have continued he just needed better stories and villians.
jesus that car is crap Bond has never driven anything like that by choice
yeah Bond had a bently to begin with!
hes been class all the way!
Please, not more Bond movies. The franchise is dead, and its very hard to get something new in a character with more than 20 movies.
Tell that to sherlock holmes...
The movies have sucked since Conery left.
I disagree,Moore had some decent outings and Goldeneye was perhaps the best of all the Bond movies,the last 3 Pierce did were less effective although TWINE was pretty good IMO
I think that the franchise died with goldeneye. The other three brosnan movies sucked big time. But goldeneye wasnt the best bond movie, in any way. Goldfinger was better, spy who loved me was better.
Jackman Turns Down Bond

Our Aussie pals at Dark Horizons have turned us on to a story in the latest issue of the Melbourne based newspaper, The Age, which reports that Hugh "Wolverine" Jackman has turned down the opportunity to play Agent 007, James Bond, in the next three films.
He would only have been the second Australian to play the prestigious part after George Lazenby, who only appeared in one Bond film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service back in 1969. According to The Age, Jackman, who was reportedly the frontrunner for the role, turned it down after talking with wife Deborah-Lee Furness, because he didn't feel that he needed to play Bond in order to boost his already high profile career.
I don't think he would have made that good a Bond.
1.- Ewan McGregor (if they want to go for a charming "young Roger Moore"-ish type of Bond) and Hugh Jackman (for a tough looking, Connery-like Bond) would both be excellent for Bond, so too bad Hugh turned it down.
2.- Bond drives a car to complete his missions, not to drop off his kids at soccer practice, so that car fails
3.- I hope they include the
testicle beating scene
. God, that must have sucked, poor Bond
Bale for Bondup:
Check this out:
"At one point Bond is tortured by having his genitals beaten. He spends three weeks in the hospital and is desperate to have sex with Vesper to prove that he still can function. This episode exposes the sexual insecurity that lies behind the misogyny. Significantly, Fleming uses the image of a parabola to describe both torture and seduction. There is a sexual pleasure at the end of torture when the body's capacity for pain has been exhausted. All these complexes seem like one of the expected probable outcomes of the British public school."
I hope they have the balls (heh) to include this in the movie.
In and out, in and out! When will those BOND producers make up their minds?
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with another chapter in the cluster-**** that is the Bond franchise right now. It's gotten to the point that we have just been ignoring every Bond casting rumor, it was getting that ridiculous. I know I was thinking, "**** it! I'll just wait for the official announcement!" Well, this ain't an official announcement on who will be playing James Bond in the next film, but rather a confirmation of who won't be playing James Bond. I've always liked Brosnan in the role and hope whoever they have reloading his PPK is a worthy successor. Below is an email containing an Associated Press article where Brosnan confirms his official lay off from the series.
What the heck is wrong with these producers? They do the right thing and get the guy back in there for his 007 swan song....fans rejoice.....now this.....I'm so pissed..... The Associated Press
A single, surprising phone call and it was over. That's how Pierce Brosnan says he learned that his services as James Bond would no longer be required.
"One phone call, that's all it took!" the 52-year-old actor tells Entertainment Weekly magazine in its Aug. 19 issue.
Brosnan starred in four Bond films. He says that before they stopped negotiations, the producers had invited him back for a fifth time.
"You know, the movie career for me really started with Bond," says Brosnan, acknowledging that by the time "GoldenEye" premiered in 1995, he was already 42.
He then starred as 007 in "Tomorrow Never Dies" (1997), "The World Is Not Enough" (1999) and "Die Another Day" (2002).
His departure from the role was a "titanic jolt to the system," says Brosnan, followed by "a great sense of calm."
"I thought ... I can do anything I want to do now. I'm not beholden to them or anyone. I'm not shackled by some contracted image. So there was a sense of liberation."
Brosnan says he's grateful to have had the role, but adds: "It never felt real to me. I never felt I had complete ownership over Bond. Because you'd have these stupid one-liners ? which I loathed ? and I always felt phony doing them."
He plays a foulmouthed, skirt-chasing hit man in the upcoming film "The Matador."
"(For this) to come on the heels of my departure from the world of Bond is sweet grace, to play this one as a farewell to that chapter in time ? it certainly wasn't planned."
At least we can end all the rumours of him coming back!
Yeah,i just wish he was coming back though,these new wannabe's arent impressing me
