    I could forgive the bullet time effect and Madonna's overly produced-techno theme song. IMHO, the first 20 to 30 minutes of Die Another Day were pretty decent. And it seemed like we were going to get a hard edged LTK type movie this time around. They actually showed James Bond captured and tortured, they brought back Judi Dench's ballsy M who cared little for Bond, but then it pretty much went downhill from there.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that if Casino Royale with Daniel Craig does not do well at the BO or well enough as the Brosnan films, SONY makes EON bring Pierce Brosnan back for the next Bond film, regardless of the contractual obligations to Craig.

    PLEase be GOOD! Don't pander and chuck in loads of explosions, use the story, use CHARACTERS and no prodcut placement.

    This has a lot of potential, but i've got a very strong feeling the producer morons (Michael thingy and Brocolli) will try to make it confrom to the rest of the series.

    Well, for once M should care about Bond. He is the best 00 agent, and he probably costed a lot of Her Majesty's money. That they let him rot for a year and a half in a North Korean prison is ridiculous. And that Bond never tries toe scape is also ridiculous.

    How hell he supposes escape when he didn't have anything? Agents do get court. They beaten him up so badly that you don’t think about escape, unless he used his nails to scratch the prison wall or something.

    We are talking about James Bond here, in a year and a half, he could have tried something. And anyway, why didn't they try to get him out earlier? Come on, a 00 agent must be expensive, and Bond is the best, letting him rot there was ridiculous and out of character from M (or the whole MI6).

    In the novel Bond is not 28. He's around 33. And given that Craig has been cast then Haggis is talking out of his ass.


    This is about Bonds 3rd yr in the Secret Service, but probably only his first 'major' mission. At the start of Casino Royale he's only killed 2 people before. This is NOT a prequel OR a re-boot. Notice that there is absolutley no continuity in bond movies ijn the first place. This is just an area that hasn't been explored yet.

    In Casino Royale Bond is a very different person than you will have seen. He's vulnerable and raw and makes alot of mistakes. He's a little confused about his job and has a hard time coming to terms with the morals, or lack of, which his job requires. Anyhow, he falls in love with Vesper and is essentially betrayed by her. This turns him into the cold, ruthless bastard he is today.

    As for Q, he makes no appearance in the novel, nor does Monneypenny. They won't be in the movie unless re-writes happen. Gadgets will be in the film, but toned down(no farkin' invisible car). M will make an ppearance. I wish Dench was sacked so that Michael gambon could take over.

    All in all, this film should kick ass. Character driven with depth. It'll touch issues of Bond not even the Connery films did.

    While Craig isn't the person I would have picked, I still have high hopes for this movie.

    My biggest hope is that they don't end Casino Royale with a cheesy one-liner or a love scene.

    I want it to end with "The ***** is dead now," like the book.

    Se would be better than those big stars we had in the last few movies. Billie Piper is only a local star after all. But can seh pull it off? She is a bit too young for a Bond girl I think.

    Royale Rumblings
    Bond girl buzz builds.
    by Stax




    November 1, 2005 - Both CommanderBond.net and MI6 inform us that Belgian-born actress Cécile de France (High Tension, Around the World in 80 Days) may be in the running to play Bond girl Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale.

    The rumors stem from a report at Dark Horizons a few weeks back. Now the IMDb lists de France on their Casino Royale page. Obviously, nothing conclusive can be drawn from either of these but de France, 30, seems like the right type for the role of Vesper.

    According to ITN, another rumored Bond girl contender is 23-year-old British singer-actress Billie Piper. Her credits include The Calcium Kid and the TV miniseries version of The Canterbury Tales. She most recently appeared as Rose Tyler on the new Dr. Who series.

    Meanwhile, Indian thesp Gulshan Grover insists that he's not yet out of the running for the role of the villain in Casino Royale, despite recent reports that his candidacy had been overstated. The actor informed the Hindustan Times, "I met senior representatives of the casting agency for Casino Royale in Los Angeles. ... The confirmation will take a while in coming."

    About that torture scene in Casino Royale ... Cecile De France gets bloody in High Tension.[/size]
    [​IMG]
    Grover has denied claims of self-promotion. "Newspapers in the U.K. started it. All I told them was that it would be a great honour for me and my country if I did indeed land the role."
