I´ve been thinking of this too after I heard that next Bond movie will be Casino Royale...maybe LeChiffe can be a moneyman for Al Qaida instead of KGB/Smersh  ;D

About torture,there was quite a bit of that in last movie,Die Another Day.Will they do that again...well we shall see.

Btw I don`t see why James Bond`s character  needs to be under 30 years old.I think 37 years old Bond is just fine.A bit matured but not over the hill...quess what´s my age will be next year  ;D






hemlock, you seem to be missing the point, ordinarily james bond is supposed to be around 35-40 thats perfect, but in this instance the story is about his first mission, when he was 28. thats whats wrong, it's not that he's too old for bond normally, i spent a year balking at people i thought were too young, until haggis revealed he was writing for a young bond. let me put it this way.
would ET have worked if the script stayed the same but they cast an 18 or 19 year old as elliot, NO!
same here, a 37 year old bond will look pretty stupid on a first mission.

I missed your poin little_bill,no doubt.Sorry ;)

Ofcourse if they(producers,writers and director)keep saying this Casino Royale is supposed to be James Bond`s first mission then you`re right bill.37 year old agent is too old for his first mission and in that case Daniel Craig also would be too old for the part .

It`s been awhile since I read Ian Fleming`s Casino Royale novel so I don`t remember what age Bond supposed to be in it but I do prefer more mature Bond than too young Bond.

I think it would`ve been huge mistake to cast as Bond somebody who is under 30 years old.
Since they didn`t do that I´m pretty sure there`ll be different kind of script molding instead of what they`ve been saying so far  ???

Btw all the actors who`s names was dropped every now and then for possible role of Bond were all over 30 years old:Ewan McGregor,Jude Law,Clive Owen and ofcourse Craig.So I don`t believe they were looking for younger actor for the Bond`s role.

I´m sure they want to get back to basics,back to the plot/story and the characters forgetting the gadgets and such nonsense which quite often have shadowed the main story in Bond movies.

I hope Casino Royale will be more in the line of such Bond films as From Russia With Love,For Your Eyes Only and Licence To Kill which I think are more down to earth kind of Bond movies.

Btw it did not work too well with Jack Ryan films to cast much younger actor for the main role.Ben Affleck sucked as Jack Ryan in The Sum Of All Fears after Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford`s movies .

Ofcourse Jack Ryan is not the same thing as James Bond...like Jason Bourne won`t be either.

yeah most of the names were over 30, i posted a link from the director michale campbells interview about 4 posts up, it had an excerpt where he said he was looking at people aged 30-31 to play a 28 year old bond, the post also has a link to a paul haggis interview  where he says bond will be 28. i think it might be interesting, but if i were honest i prefer the tried and trusted old fashioned mature bond, broken in and world weary, i'm just angry that after hashing the last couple the broccoli family seem determined to make sure the legacy their father left them is even further damaged

Bond villain has been cast.

Quote
Bearing out rumors spread by his taxi-cab driver father, Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen appeared at a news conference Wednesday in the Czech Republic with the producers and leading actors of the forthcoming 007 movie Casino Royale, where it was announced that he had landed the role of the villain Le Chiffre. The role was played by Orson Welles in the 1967 spoof of the Ian Fleming book. The new film has already begun shooting, despite the fact that the so-called Bond Girl has not been selected yet. At the news conference, director Martin Campbell remarked that the choice had been narrowed down to "two or three" actresses.

I believe Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter is a good choice.I like him..but was there Felix Leiter in fleming`s Casino Royale novel  ???

Eva Green as next"Bond-girl"does not sound good to me but than again I´ve been wrong many many times before  ;D

YES! Ze Danes are taking over ze movie!   :D

According to the danish papers, another Dane is in on the action. Jesper Christensen is to play the boss of Casino Royale. I´m not entirely sure about that seeing as danish newspapers have been horribly wrong about big foreign movies before (like saying that Morgan freeman would be the villain in Batman begins and that Christopher Walk en would star in  Sin City)
I´ve found a link on the bond page, but it doesn't seem to be confirmed yet...
