Berlin Escape? Never heard of it. Where's it from?

BTW, Berlin Escape should be under American Publisher names too - that's what the US magazines Argosy and Intrigue used - after it had been published as TLD in the Sunday Times.

Working Titles:
My Enemy's Enemy (13th Novel?)

I seriously doubt that title would have been used, considering Kingsley Amis used it for his 1962 book.

The Undertaker's Gale?

Hey, I like that one.

Having said that, in reality only two titles weren't in some way from Fleming- Tomorrow Never Dies and Die Another Day, so I suppose given that last one that's quite a bad record overall.

Actually, I for one love the title Die Another Day, and I think Tomorrow Never Lies is also pretty cool (wish they'd never changed it).

Anyhow, "the world is not enough" is said in OHMSS, yet that didn't stop Eon using it as a title in 1999.

And "licence to kill" being mentioned in just about every movie. :lol: I myself have wavered on whether TPOAL is good enough to be used as a title, but I don't think its being said in passing once or twice in a Bond film made 25 years ago should disqualify it.

I seriously doubt that title would have been used, considering Kingsley Amis used it for his 1962 book.

Shh, no one has to know. :angry: Seriously, unless the title is already famous or has been used recently, I don't mind EON using it. Hell, Denzel Washington made a License to Kill TV movie only a few years before Dalton's LTK. :cooltongue:

Some very lonely Kingsley Amis nut would still probably turn into "that guy" if My Enemy's Enemy was used for Fleming, not Amis. (Though I'd be all about it.)

The Bond 22 title is a derivative of The Hildebrand Rarity:

Barron Von Hildebrand

??? :cooltongue:

I've asked this once and I'll ask again . . . what about the John Gardner and Raymond Benson novels? Are Broccoli and Wilson too cheap to purchase the movie rights to those stories?

I agree, the John Gardner and Raymond Benson novels are great.

I like the idea of 'Double Shot' - it has a very complex plot.

It will be LIVE AND LET DIE.

Endless speculation will end once they annouce the title, and I will be proven right.

It's pretty much obvious they will go the CR way, ie do a closer adaptation of the early novels that were not properly put on screen.

Next will be You only live twice. Pretty much obvious. No one will complain about those being already Bond movies, more than people complained about CR having already been done as a Bond movie. On the contrary, this will be a marketing asset.

And once they get to Dr No, believe me, the new series will be out there on top of the box office world.

History will prove me right
