More on the Writer’s Strike

MI6 has an interesting interview excerpt about the script for Bond 22:

“I just finished the second draft of the Bond movie and was doing the polish when this thing stopped”, Haggis said. “And I don’t want that movie shooting where it says “something happens here.” I’m sure they can figure it out for themselves. It sort of does that at one point. Whatever, I can’t tell you what it is, but it says “something is like that,” and I’m sure they can figure it out for themselves.

Haggis went on to say that he has been contacted by the production during the strike, but would not break picket lines to help out Bond 22. “I get calls from Amy (Pascal), I get calls from Michael (Wilson). They hope this thing resolves. They’re really, really good people.”

Thank you, Paul Haggis

Paul Haggis rushed to finish the script of Bond 22, so he could turn it in before the anticipated writer’s strike. Now that the screenwriters have indeed gone on strike, we can all be grateful to the foresight and extra effort.

Phew.
