To confuse the location issue even more :) :

1 - When you see Bond and Wai Lin surface after excaping from the sunken Devinshire it was actually filmed off the pier on James Bond Island, which is in Thailand.

2 - The James Bond Island location in Thailand is a stand-in for the same location that was depicted in Tomorrow Never Dies - Ha Long Bay.

As Qwerty said, hopefully, but I seriously doubt that he will ever play Bond. The window of opportunity for him was from immediately after the release of Die Another Day to the day before the Oscar nominations were announced. Once those were announced and he was nominated, the chances of him taking the role probably plummeted.

Well i don't know why they don't make Colonal Sun. It's a good book. I suppose i could work on a plot synopsis like i did for CR. but i'll cut the violence out of course.

Colonol Sun could be a great film, but will it happen? No. But if it did, I would like to see Sun attempt a military coup of China and threaten to launch Nuclear weapons into Russia and Taiwan. M could be kidnapped when (s)he tries to negotiate with one of Sun's henchman and Bond would insist to Tanner or Robuinson that he should be the one to go after M. Once Bond and the girl (Ariadne from the book, or a Chinese agent) get into Sun's lair, we could learn that M made a secret deal with Sun shortly before Hong Kong was given back to the Chinese. Sun was supposed to lead a peaceful revolution, but used the money and bought weapons and soldiers and generals to rally to his cause. I would make Sun a relative of a Chinese Emoperor to give him some legitimacy to those favoring a return to China's past. Bond could rescue M and get the girl of course, but M could face severe reprecussions and the future of the double o program could be in jeopardy to. Of course there would be a continuation in the next film. I haven't really thought it all out, but I think that's a good idea.

Great plot HCMV. I wish more Bond films kept story threads going from one film to the next. Unfortunately that hasn't happened since since they stoipped using SPECTRE. (I know General Gogol made recurring appearances but each was self-contianed.)

I hope EON does something like you suggest.

There was discussion of using Colonel Sun as a title in the 1980's and 1990's between Eon and Glidrose. I think you could easily have called DAD, CS just by renaming Colonel Moon. The spirit of the story is similar. Well, sort of.

Wait a second. I feel a theme song coming on...

I'll read the comic book adaption of Colonel Sun and do a treatment for it.

I always find that reading the graphic novels is a lot easier than reading he novels it self

:) I havn't read Colonel Sun but I hear it is a good book and would no doubt be good film. There are dozens of novels which havn't been turned into Bond movies, and the producers say that they don't know which way to turn for ideas for the films. It's obvious. make the bloody books into films. pleeeeeeeeeeeese.

Colonel Sun is a fabulous book; by far the best non-Fleming Bond novel (in all honesty, I also think it's better than Fleming's TMWTGG and DAF).

But one essential part of the book has already been used, albeit in a different way - the little business of M being kidnapped...

Scored by JOHN POWELL

Directed by MATTHEW VAUGHN

Not following the novel directly, the cinematic adaptation successfully captured its darkly exotic atmosphere, the famous torture scene being the most violent in the Bond film history. No Moneypenny (obviously), no Q (even more obviously), no big explosions every five minutes, no CGI and a specific rejection of formula; 2005's COLONEL SUN was the most daring Bond picture yet. It received highly positive critical reviews, although some lamented the loss of the gimmicks and gadgets. Bond fans found themselves sharply divided; many welcomed the greater degree of realism and eroticism while others carped about the lack of set pieces, the focus on character and a plot that makes some sort of sense and the absence of Neal Puvis and Robert Wade's dry and subtle wit. The film opened in the United States with a smaller take than the film's predecessor - DIE ANOTHER DAY - although good reviews and word-of-mouth ensured that COLONEL SUN just surpassed that film's US gross. Worldwide, the film proved a particular success in Asia, and overall it made slightly more money than the 20th outing in 2002. Made for under $100 million, however, COLONEL SUN proved to be one of the more profitable Bond pictures of the modern era.

While being interviewed during promotion, Owen said that he did not wish to be typecast as Bond and announced that he would only fulfil his three-film contract and no more. Rumours of the following film have been wildly circulating around the internet; those suggesting that the film will centre on Bond fighting an army of futuristic neo-Nazi robots in northern Finland have neither been confirmed nor denied by Eon. In an interview with a Bond fan website during which the plot was put to him, John Gardner replied that it 'sounds rather good to me.'

When filming SERAPHIM FALLS former Bond actor Pierce Brosnan was asked what he thought of the film's success. '**** off,' was his reply, leading some in the fan community to describe Mr Brosnan's language as 'un-Bondian'. This culminated in the creation of the website www.brosnanwasneverbond.com, which successfully lobbied for Eon's official renunciation the actor's tenure and removal of the DVD's from sale.

Good foresight from last August on Bond pick. I would love to see Colonel Sun made into a movie, but I don't think it would be a good one right after CR. Two (well three) movies where Bond get tortured would be a little too much.

My synopsys for Colonel Sun

PTS- We see 001 infiltrating a meeting, that is between Colonel Sun and the government of Iran. Iran wants Colonel Sun to smuggle nuclear 'items' out of the country before the Un inspection.

Just before Colonel Sun agrees 001 attacks and get cuaght. The deal was compromised and 001 was killed imdetly.

MAIN TITLE SEQUNCE

M informs Bond what has happened, and embarrased at how stupid she was to send 001 out and not 007 to stop the deal.

Intelligence reports that Colonel Sun will get his revenge on the British.

A party is taken place at the house of parliment (This scene is exactly like the first level that was in FRWL vidoe game, it even includes the jet packs)

Bond wins. :)

That night M is kidnapped, Bond is enformed the next day by Tanner, Greek letters an symbols are left at the scene.

From here on the story is pretty much the same.

Another meeting his planned for the smuggling of Iran's nuclear items.

Bond has been delayed to stop it happening.

The nuclear 'items' from Iran are now in Chinese possesion. Colonel Sun has no intention of returning the nuclear items at all. He his keeping them.

Colonel Sun is the leader of some Chinese army. His army kill the Iran goverment and places Bond and M at the scene, to make out that the Brirish were involved.
