Casino Royale for Bond 21?

OK, I need to start posting in here again.

I’ll start with a simple entry.

New Bond Gets ‘Royale’ Treatment

The latter article says:

The 21st James Bond film has a title: “Casino Royale,” which also was the title of Ian Fleming’s first James Bond novel, published in 1953.

The novel was adapted into a 1954 television show and Columbia Pictures’ unofficial 1967 spy spoof “Casino Royale,” which starred Peter Sellers, Woody Allen and David Niven. In 1999, MGM acquired the title and rights in a settlement with Columbia’s Sony Pictures parent. MGM is now in the process of being acquired by a Sony-led investor group.

Martin Campbell, who directed the 1995 Bond film “GoldenEye,” is on board to return to the helm. No decision has been made yet regarding casting for the role of James Bond, which has been played since “GoldenEye” by Pierce Brosnan.

If the movie is even somewhat faithful to the story we’ve been analyzing here, it will be a great movie! Of course, they will be adding plenty of gratuitous machine gun sequences, but hopefully the overall plot of the novel will be preserved.

I hope to have another installment of the Casino Royale novel on here soon…
