    Agreed. That restart is a mistake, and could damage the character we know and love. Maybe a prequel could have been fine, but that's a big maybe.

    If they make it a James Bond 90210, realism will be thrown out of the window.

    I started reading the book yesterday. The beginning is a bit boring.

    Chapter 17 - 'MY DEAR BOY'...

    It was a large bare room, sparsely furnished in cheap French art nouveau style. It was difficult...

    It took me some time to find it since I haven't read it in ages. I just hope to God it stays true to the novel...
     
  9. I still think its a mistake...the movie might be too serious for people who have grown up watching the movies we know and love...

    but we will see....

    For god sake bring back Brosnan...just adapt the story to make bond established instead of starting out on his first mission.

    It's a real gamble trying to remake the film franchise again. Am I the only one who remembers the damage License To Kill caused?

    Granted I'm a fan of the more low key Bond (Living Daylights, OHMSS) but people are so used to the video game like over the top Bond I think this will not make much money. Which will kill Bond for a while. But to be honest Bond does need a restart badly. It's just so sickeningly generic I don't know who anybody over 18 could enjoy Bond anymore. Brosnan was cast great but the movies they gave him were garbage. Except for Goldeneye.

    I'm glad the guys who wrote James Bond On Ice aren't writing it anymore. I'm curious to know if they'll have the balls to make it a period piece. Or just update the books main narratives.

    I think its great they finally got rid of the hack writers that have done the last few Bond movies.

    Its something I've been saying they needed to do with this flick for a long time.

    Brosnan on 007 & The Topkapi Affair

    Source: EcranLarge.com
    September 3, 2005



    EcranLarge.com attended a press conference with The Matador star Pierce Brosnan at the 31st Deauville 2005 American Film Festival. He talked about both the James Bond rumors and his upcoming sequel to The Thomas Crown Affair:

    While attending a press conference for the presentation of his new movie, The Matador, Pierce Brosnan was asked about the last months' rumours about his involvement in Casino Royale, the 21st James Bond movie, and also about the sequel to The Thomas Crown Affair:

    "I won't be part of the next James Bond. I've already played the role five times and the character is now part of my past. Now, I want to take care about the movies Beau St. Clair and I are producing with our company Irish DreamTime (The Nephew, Evelyn, Laws of Attraction). All the rumours that have been going around for the last few months about me being part of Casino Royale or not are just rumours, nothing more.

    Regarding The Thomas Crown Affair 2, entitled "The Topkapi Affair," the script is being written right now. Sony Pictures is really thrilled about this whole new affair that we expect to shoot in Istanbul."

    UPDATE!

    SOURCE: Click me!

    This sucks! :down :mad:

    Time is running out for James Bond. Filming of the next 007 movie, Casino Royale, is scheduled to start within 12 weeks but the makers have no script, no Miss Moneypenny and nobody to play Britain’s most enduring spy, writes John Harlow in The Times (UK).

    Amy Pascal, chairman of Sony Pictures, which will be raising the £70m budget for the film, will this week convene a second 007 summit to pick a new Bond. The first, last year in a London club, ended in disarray.

    Sony has told Eon, the British-based company that holds production rights to the Bond series, that it may have to postpone the film, according the report. Cinemas have already started booking it for October 19, 2006.

    Many replacements for the ousted Pierce Brosnan, who played Bond in the past four movies, have been discussed, but so far all have failed to match up to the Irish actor.

    Rejection can cut both ways. Everyone had agreed Clive Owen, 41, should play Bond, so director Martin Campbell offered him the role. But he turned it down, telling friends he finds Bond dated.

    They should not rush things. It seems that so far the project is pretty half-baked. And if they were making a prequel, why would they want to cast Clive Owen? At his gae, he cannot look like a beginner in the 00 section.
     
  19. I personaly don't think this is going to be a prequel.

    That's what they were saying not so long ago, that it was going to be a prequel. I think they just have no clue anymore about what to do. They turned the franchise into a joke in Die Another Day, and now they can't figure out how to get things right again.
     
  21. I read an interveiw with the writers,(before the paul haggis came in) they said they had changed quite alot of the book..I would assume to keep bond established.

    Look, Martin Campbell is back which is definatly a good thing. He was the one who brought back life into a dead franchise and he can do it again.

    Campbell back in is a good thing indeed, but he isn't the only element in the picture. So far, the production has been chaotic and if they ever decide NOT to make it a prequel, firing Brosnan was a huge mistake.
     

  25. Because they are quite stupid!

    Brosnan is the best thing to happen to bond since connery!
