No Moneypenny, no Q

MI6 has the news, and commenter Peter will be crestfallen.

Producer Michael G. Wilson stated that in order for the characters to have appeared in the new film, moments would have to be carved out for them which would not have felt “organic”.

Boo fucking hoo. You’ve got an Academy Award winning writer, you’ve got a critically acclaimed director. You can make it organic! And a regular cast at MI6 (Bond’s HQ, not the fansite) makes the movie, and the franchise, more organic, whereas some anonymous guy who shows up, sticks a tracer in Bond’s arm, and then leaves, is artificial.

Wilson left the door open for the characters, saying that they may come back in the future, but only if the story demands it.

Don’t toy with me, Mikey.

    I am wondering if they’ll even bring back Q (as we have come to know him) at all. If I had to guess, I’d say he’ll go back to the type of role we saw in Dr. No.

  2. ‘Q’ will be ressurected when fans beg for over-the-top cheeziness of the gadgets. 🙂

    As a writer working in the tech industry, I see the basic conflict between the tech-oriented and the outside-world-oriented all the time. There’s not a lot of difference between the relationship between Q and Bond, and the relationship between a software developer and a salesman. I think that tension can be explored with humor and intelligence without it becoming cheesy.
