Bond 23: A Standalone Adventure

Article Link:
Collider.com ::: Daniel Craig talks about the future of JAMES BOND

Major points of the article:

– Bond 23 will be standalone: there will be no “Casino Royale” / “Quantum of Solace” / “Bond 23” trilogy. Craig said, No fucking way. I’m done with that story. I want to lie on a beach for the first half an hour of the next movie drinking a cocktail.”

– Q and Moneypenny may return: Craig states, “Let’s try and find where Moneypenny came from and where Q comes from.”


I’m hardly thrilled about this news. This is all we need – Purvis and Wade mucking up this new, supposedly “continuity-friendly” Bond series. I wonder what they’d like to bring back? An invisible car, perhaps? I like the serious Bond. I like the Bond who actually kicks peoples’ asses, rather than shooting them, or relying on gadgets. I like the unhappy endings. I don’t mind Moneypenny returning, briefly, for each film, as she did in “Dr. No”, and so on. Though, I think Q’s done with. Llewelyn, rest in peace, has left us. John Cleese did a terrible job with the character, thus proving that it’ll be a hard act to follow.

Then again, this is what the people want. I think the ignorant audiences, these days, like a mindless getaway film. After almost 10 years of Brosnan, they need to be corrected.

I don’t know. I just hope they don’t end up ruining Craig’s series.
