My Point I loved Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. I want bond 23 to be the best bond 23 ever.


Well you're in luck, 'cause there'll only be one.

I meant of all the possible bond 23's the could happen like if they went with haggis over Purvis wade and Morgan etc.

Goodness knows what you'd say if they had hired a female writer (or do in the future).


We would say whatever we said when Dana Stevens was hired to do rewrites on THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH.

Lady writers have been involved with Bond from the start. Though I think Gravity's thoughts here are deliberate forum fire-stoking so shouldn't really garner much feedback at all.

Perfect Director. I love Near Dark, Point Break and Strange Days. The Weight of Water is equally engaging. She is definitely a no holds bar director who understands how to maintain style and substance. If this is true then am totally physiqued. At the moment she is working with Hurt Locker writer in a new movie.

However if people didn't like Marc Foster then for sure Bigelow will be out. Similar styles of film making with the latter having more experience with action adventure movies.
Am game for this!

And yet you felt the compulsion to respond to what I wrote? In addition to being unable to not respond to me, you have shown over the course of many weeks responding to me on different subjects that you apparently can't differentiate between sarcasm, irony, or satire either.


Uh, it's the internet. A large part of telling whether or not somebody's being sarcastic, satirical, or ironic in REAL LIFE is down to judging facial expressions. Don't B) Zorin by asininely telling him, that he should be able to know you're intent when you're not even using smilies - the basic form of non-verbal communication on message boards.

It's unattractive.

Wow, well spotted. That's Satsuki standing with him, isn't it? And I guess he was backstage hanging out...talking shop, perhaps.

Could be he's in NY for any one of the six(!) films he apparently has in development, according to the imdb. But yes it is interesting that he is attending an event that involves the star and producers of Bond. At least we know he was no Roger Spottiswoode :tdown:

Yes they were leaving a matinee performance I think which MGW attended too.

As for Marc, curiouser and curiouser methinks. :tdown:
He could have just been watching the play of course B) but I like a mystery. :)

I think that Forster attending Craig's play in New York is nothing more than Forster attending Craig's play. He's not directing Bond 23 (he's already stated rather definitively that he isn't), and given the underwhelming critical and fan response to Quantum of Solace, I doubt that MGW and BB would go through the trouble of trying to convince him to come back for the next film.

With that said, I'd be absolutely delighted if Forster were to return, but from all available evidence, it's almost definitely not happening.

Often times the important evidence is hidden. That said, I do doubt Forster will ever return to Bond, and if he will, it probably won't be for a while.

which is a shame as i thoughht foresters work on Quanntum of solace was amazing. Call me crazy but I just don't see the apparent "drop" in greatness going from Casino Royale to Quantum of solace. I think both films are amazing. Craig thus far has been blessed with 2 great stories. I believe bringing Peter Morgan in is a (hopefull) sign that the producers are not giving up the gritty flemingesque realistic environment that made Casino royale and Quantum of solace the amazing films they are.


On that note I've thought about this and yes if Bigelow were offered the job I'd be happy with it. I don't think she'd give us Die another Day part 2, though I believe she looks better in a dress then Tamhori, (sorry couldn't resist) But it would be an interesting balance as from my recollection of Point break is that it was a fun take on the bank robber story. I think if she were director and her and the writer could work together we may get a bond film that while dark and gritty does have some "fun bond moments" (i still feel QOS had those as well i mean i enjoyed the car chase and the boat chase and felt they were fun but that is me)

I never saw the hurt locker which many claims is much more in tone with the latest bond films.

Another theory then - what if Babs and Mike are courting Forster to direct their film adaptation of A Steady Rain? A low key, intimate character drama, as its been described, is Forster's specialty, e.g. Monster's ball, Finding Neverland.

Based upon Zorin's response to me, one can logically conclude he didn't realize that women *HAVE* been screenwriters on the Bond series before. And that's being charitable.

What I find "unattractive" and "asinine" is snarkily suggesting that my comment about Dana Stevens was somehow an attempt at stoking a fire, when the reality is that the comment was FACTUAL and set the record straight. No smilies were necessary because no joke was being made. Baerrrrttt's assertion that no female writer has ever been hired was just plain wrong, and Zorin Industries, in his zeal to get a dig in at me, bolstered Baerrrtttt's faulty conclusion, despite that the facts prove otherwise.

I don't need lessons in screenwriters and screenwriting (and those that have been associated with the Bond films) from anyone round here. Sorry.

Regardless of gender, Bigelow seems a bit of a "has-been" to me; the sort of once promising but now down-on-their-luck person who would have been hired during the Brosnan era. Sure Near Dark, Point Break and Strange Days were great but they're glories long since passed - if they'd hired her to direct The Living Daylights or Licence to Kill she'd have been an interesting choice but 20+ years on I think they can do better and Tony Gilroy is that person IMO.

Gilroy would be an interesting choice. But I doubt that he will be asked due to the poor box office returns of DUPLICITY. Also, he would want to re-write the script, I bet.

And due to THE HURT LOCKER, Bigelow is a hot director again. (Although not box-office proven either). I guess a woman director for Bond would be a great PR-angle, therefore interesting for EON.
