Cinematical is Concerned

Posted in Quantum of Solace, Wacky Media with tags on July 19, 2007 by Deborah Lipp

Ryan Stewart of Cinematical is shocked…shocked, I say!…that James Bond fansites aren’t totally worked up about the humor thing.

I’m starting to wonder whether the two major James Bond fansites are steering clear of the current Bond issue — the increasingly likely notion that the producers of Bond 22 are intent on steering away from the hugely-successful tough, gritty Bond vibe of Casino Royale in favor of a quip circus, a la Roger Moore. After this was first reported in a British paper — not always the most reliable source of news — the guys at IGN did some digging and their source is confirming that this is a reality: the plan is to go more humorous this time around. So how come and Mi6 aren’t weighing in on this topic?

In comments, zencat of CBn points out it’s a non-story, while MI6’s David Lee points out that they did cover the story–on July 13—so what’s all this about non-coverage?


Marc Forster all over the news

Cinematical, Rope of Silicon, CBn and more are talking about the Marc Forster interview in which he discusses the possibility of using the Alps as a filming location.

Not sure how I feel about it. Been there, done that, plus there’s always production problems because of the harsh weather. Will they never visit South Africa or Australia?

Short interview with Paul Haggis

Posted in Quantum of Solace with tags , on March 29, 2007 by Deborah Lipp

Erik Davis of Cinematical has a snippet of an interview with Paul Haggis up. Haggis isn’t currently involved with Bond 22.

As far as Bond 22 goes, Haggis told me with a peculiar smile that he was not involved in the film … yet. Though it seemed to me as if he’d be interested in tackling another re-write should the situation present itself.
