At least they went back to a director who clearly respects the series. The last two 007 flicks made me red with fury.
Eh, I liked them better than GoldenEye, which never really grabbed me.
And I'll bet this movie resembles Casino Royale about as much as The Spy Who Loved Me resembled its source namesake.
Jason, I was thinking the same thing. There might be some gambling at some point, but that's as close as it's going to get.
Goldeneye is one of my favorite films of the 90s, so I'm very happy that Campbell is back on.
Am I the only person who thought that Goldeneye was more of an average action movie then a 007 movie, with a stilted peformance from Pierce Brosnan, but a great villian?
Was it Tarantino who wanted to make Casino Royale a few months ago?
I think it's a solid choice of director, Goldeneye is the only Brosnan Bond film that I thought was successful, most of the time it actually felt like a spy movie. The last two were a complete farce.
Martin Campbell did a good job in reviving the the Bond franchise with Goldeneye.
It wasn't my favorite Brosnan Bond though I preferred the next one Tomorrow Never Dies. But I'm glad they got Campbell to do Casino Royale, now who's playing the Peter Sellers part?
Should be interesting. I didn't care for Goldeneye, and really liked the idea of a Tarantino Casino Royale, but...
Who's going to be Bond? Last I heard Brosnan was out. Clive Owen would be great, IMHO, but has anyone been announced? Brosnan always appeared more of a characature than a true character. I think Owen could pull off a more realistic Bond. Suave, but thugish enough to believe as a ass kicking spy.
GoldenEye is the only Brosnan Bond flick I genuinely liked, so Campbell returning is good news. Now all they need is a script that takes the material seriously. Oh, and a James Bond.
BTW, I can't wait to see how they work the words "Casino Royale" into the title song.
IIRC Owen didn't want the role.
Well rumors are abound that a Bond might be announced next week. Don't quote me on that.
Here's another vote for Martin Campbell and Goldeneye, which I think is the best Brosnan Bond film yet. No one has yet surpassed Famke Janssen as Onatapp - Bond's best female villain in the Brosnan series. Unlike other Bond films, it does not have a catoonish villain and it has a strong female lead, Izabella Scorupco. Here's hoping that Campbell cooks up another good Bond film.
Ocean, it took me a while to figure out that IIRC means something along the line of "if I remember correctly."
Does anyone else think it is just a bit too coincidental that they would go with Casino Royale for the next 'official' Bond since Tarantino and even Brosnon have expressed a lot of interest in doing it, even if it meant on their own as an unofficial bond? May just be me but it appears like they are making sure that that teamup doesn't happen.
I read recently that Dougray Scott (MI-II, Ever After) was close to getting the role.
Loved Goldeneye, but I really enjoyed Die Another Day and thought it was Brosnan's best performance as Bond. Go figure.
Yes, Tino, a very good performance in front of that blue screen.
Maybe, "I want a royale with cheese at the Casino Royale"? Nevermind, Tarantino isn't involved.
I say bring back Shirley Bassey! She'll sing the shit out of any Bond song.
Goldeneye was great, but will agree with Steve and say that Tomorrow Never Dies is Brosnan's best performance and the overall Best Brosnan Bond film. Love Michelle Yoeh.
Yeah, that totally sucks. I would have loved to see what that team would bring to the somewhat floundering series (even if it wasn't "official").
I've loved Brosnon as Bond (2nd to Connery) and I'm glad to see that Campbell is back. I really liked Goldeneye, I think it brought my generation their own Bond.
