Rumors spread over James Bond-related Internet fan sites Tuesday that a final decision on who will star in Casino Royale, the next 007 film, will be made next week. The CommanderBond.net site claimed that Sony executives will be meeting with Eon Productions execs next week in London, where the decision will be made. It said that while Pierce Brosnan had been removed from the running months ago, he now not only is being considered to star in the 21st Bond film, but that he is regarded as the frontrunner. "A senior Sony executive has told a member of the Casino Royale production team that the new Bond will 'probably' be Pierce Brosnan," the website said. However, it also indicated that actor Daniel Craig remains the "preferred" choice of Eon, the Bond movies' producers. Today's (Wednesday) Daily Variety said that Sony and Eon are completing screen tests for the movie this week and that the frontrunners are Craig, Henry Cavill, Sam Worthington and Goran Visnjic.

 

If I had to pick, I think Pierce should do at least one more movie. Especially since Pierce said that he always wanted to do a remake of "Casino Royale" before it even came out that it would be the next movie. He deserves it

Brosnan is the best Bond since Sean Connery. I wish he would continue. But I saw him on a talk show recently where he said he was done with Bond.

^ I was going to say the same, I too think that Pierce is the best Bond since Connery

 

 

he had full intention on being Bond, but the studio originally let him go because they said he was too old, he was very angry about being fired from Bond. Why I say originally is because he could come back, as the article says. I've taken a look at the other guys, and they don't look like Bond material at all.

The only Bond movie Peirce was goo in was Goldeneye- The rest were not well written.. I am hoping that Julian Mcmahon is going to play Bond. He seems the only one worthy

Pierce won't be back, sadly. And I'd love to see Timothy Dalton again, except for the whole 61-year-old thing. The Dalton movies were the best, next to TWINE. Out of the list, everyone is ugly except maybe Goran Visnjic. But he might not even be good.

It should be Pierce Brosnan.

 

I know that for the next 007 movie, they are going to feature a younger Bond but IMO that totally misses the point.

 

007 is meant to be a well-travelled world weary man who has seen and done it all.

 

Casting a younger actor is completely pointless and it seems like pandering.

 

The "Lets-See-Bond-When-He-Was-Just-Starting" concept for Casino Royale sounds like yet another prequel which honestly I'm sick and tired of.

 

If they wanted to improve upon Die Another Day they only needed to do a few things:

 

1- The "sassy female sidekick" is tiresome. Halle Berry was crap in Die Another Day, and IMO having a "Female-Sidekick-Who-Is-An-Equal" to 007 seems like pandering to politically correct pressures about 007 and I think it weakens the 007 character.

 

2- Reduce the amount of special effects. 007 will always have gadgets and devices but the special effects in Die Another Day were so badly done it was absurd.

I cannot agree more. I hate girls who out-Bond Bond. We need another airhead, like in AVTAK. And 007 movies have always done well without flashy graphics. I understand they needed it for the Icarus, but that ice surfing scene was totally unnecessary and very badly done.

I voted for Pierce Brosnan, but Goran Visnjic would be OK. The only thing I don't like about the recent Bond films is that he's becomming too "politically correct". I prefer a drinking, smoking, gambling, womanizing Bond, with a minimum of high-tech gadgets and implausible action sequences. I do like having smart women as "sidekicks" as oposed to bimbos because they'd be more useful (instead of getting in the way).

 

IMHO, a "young stud" Bond would be inappropriate. It seems more fiting that he be mature, experienced, worldly, and jaded - those qualities seem more appropriate for a spy with a "license to kill".

 

But that's just me, your mileage may vary, batteries not included. :dude:

Uh Peirce does not want it- he said he was done with Bond.

 

And i reiterate my point about Gorin- HE IS CROATIAN. Um Bond with a Easter Eurpoean Accent and who happens to be muslim? UH NO

You know what would be cool? Bring back Sean Connery as a VILLAN!!

 

Think about it! Wouldn't you love to see the ultra-suave Connery give the younger Bond chracter some pointers on coolness, attire, and woman-getting? Would be classic!

Ewan McGregor.

 

 

[waits for Tina's rant!!! B) :hug: ]

 

For me Pierce Brosnan and Sean Connery will always be the best Bonds.

 

As far as women in Bond, I hate how they've been objectived over the years. In order to compensate for that, they made them too tough. And I hate the idea that underneath that tough exterior, they just want a man after all. :dude: Give me a break!!!! :hug:

 

The women in the future of Bond need to be shown as equals.

007 should ideally be played by someone from the British Isles.

 

New Zealand or Australia are also acceptable.

 

Maybe Canada too if they can do a decent British accent.

Well Clooney is very suave and sexy. :dude:

 

Well it does bother me that they are hoes. It's help to create this stupid male [not that there are any on this site] ideal that woman are easy to bed and discard.

 

Tough is good, but women with respect for themselves King. They aren't going to jump in bed with 007 if they do. Besides, with the way they had him bed hopping though all those decades, his package should about ready to drop off from disease anyway.

 

[thinks back to AIDS education class "you sleep with the last 7 people they slept with, and the last 7 people those people slept with, and so on and so on and so on] :hug:

There were some reports recently that Tom Hardy (Shinzon) was being considered for the role. I don't know if there is any truth to those reports as I'm unfamiliar with the track record of the site that reported it.
