Bond 23: In Memoriam

If you were as inconsolably browned off as I was about this morning's Bond bombshell, why not postpone self-harming for a few minutes by reminding yourself of all the great ideas I had for the next movie, which for some reason Ms Broccoli and Mr Wilson are still to respond to:

If anyone can lend me $4 billion to buy MGM we could get this sucker made tomorrow. Who's with me?

  1. I'm with you totally. Looks like yours would be a truely memorable one. I'm not really saddened by the news of the next Bond film's delay seeing as Quantum of Solace was really quite horrible.

  2. Boo hoo. Just saw the news Mr IS! I'll give up my pocket money to help out the MGM purchase fund.

  3. I was fairly dissapointed with this news too but this has cheered me up slightly. Your ideas for M are really brilliant. Martin Shaw gets my vote but I never would have considered him if I hadn't have read this.

    Really, quite inspired (unlike the financial management of MGM).

  4. Yep,I could go for an ex-professional as M as well. Terence Stamp could only play a baddie, surely? Although he does drag very well. Prof Brian Cox as Q and you can have whatever totty you want as long as I get to see Daniel in his pants. Aren't those Moneypennys a little young though? Or at least lacking some of the personality and guile of the original. And any theme song has to better than the last doesn't it? As long as it's not bloody Lady Gaga.

    Cassell was kack in Ocean's 12.

    Why break from the traditional of every other film on the planet when you could have Mark 'which unfeasible wig shall it be this time' Strong as the baddie?

    And finally, with any luck this'll mean that Sam Mendes will pass onto something else. Tarantino still gets my vote. Cheesy one liners and ridiculously protracted action sequences... That's his bag in a nutshell.

  6. Mark Strong is more a hands-on sort of villain though isn't he? Pliers to pull out nails, BFGs to kill little girls, that sort of thing? Is he really your cat-stroking, shark owning sort of cerebral Bond villain?
