"We believe that it fully captures the mystique of the latest Bond adventure," says Michael G. Wilson regarding the poster. "It's only a teaser of what is yet to come. You might call it the teaser teaser poster."

The screenplay is shaping up to be everything I want it to be, and the release date is Christmas (as you can see). It's my "present" to the Bond fan community. So, look forward to Twilight of Danger. These teasers are only the beginning. Wait until you hear Rich Douglas' score (which is based on an early treatment of what has now evolved)! It's utterly amazing. Expect it soon.

The current plotline used the locations of Australia and Malaysia, also being changed to avoid an Asian location.
The villain, Silas Thorn, is being reworked - originally the owner of one of the leading corporations in technology development, may be something of a different nature in the revised draft.
Expect tributes to Fleming, Benson, and Jacques Nexus.
Look for Twilight of Danger in the future!!

The original storyline had a climax in a Japanese castle (an homage to Fleming's YOLT). However, it didn't suit the storyline as it evolved, and I've got some alternate endings.
Bond was originally to meet with the villain posing as a possible investor, then that was cut (it was too bland). I then had Bond set up to meet the villain in a casino, as you can see on the soundtrack by Rich Douglas, but I don't want to have the villain meet Bond in a gaming situation like Bond meets Graves in DAD. It's a pity. I liked it a lot.
Perhaps the hardest thing for me to do is avoid snow (which was originally in the outline). Snow has been featured in GE, TND, TWINE, and heavily in DAD, so I want to stray away, but some of the scenes would work well.
The original outline actually featured a Chinese general named Li (a name stolen from TND draft #1) but in order to avoid the Asian general/western meglomaniac thing that occurs in DAD, I cut that out a long long time ago.
The thing that hurts me the most to see go was a sequence I had set at the Sydney Opera House, where the villain had rented it out purely for a charity ball. There was going to be a dance sequence planned (if you've seen Thomas Crown Affair, think the dance between Russo and Brosnan) followed by an introduction to the villain.
Now the storyline has evolved, mostly for the better. The original storyline was extremely formulaic, and I think I've moved away from that. Now the villain is a bit more interesting. What I'm currently working with is good. It really is hard to come up with a Bond film. I don't know how they can come up with some much original material!

Why not release the orignal story a week or 2 after you release this new edited version? I'm looking forward to this one as well. I know the changes are for the best, but I just would like to see the orignal one as well.

If you want to know the earliest concept from way back (and soon abandoned), it was a villanous international banker with a knack for terrorism. His name was to be Kraal Drakensburg, a name that Jacques Nexus came up with.
