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 Commanderbond.net and Mi6 aren’t weighing in on this topic?

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.
