There was a rumour a few years back that Quentin Tarantino might be the one to take on James Bond. Whether he was actually interested in it or not, was never specified, it was more just a ‘who should take over the reigns’ style piece. Now, according to a report on Robogeek, Tarantino’s actually talking up such a project.
"Someday I’m going to get the rights to do ‘Casino Royale,’ the first James Bond novel, and do it the right way. I really wanted it to be my followup to ‘Pulp Fiction’ and do it with Pierce Brosnan, but have it take place after the events of ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ – after Bond’s wife, Tracy, has been killed."I want Bond to be in mourning when he falls in love with Vesper Lynd, the woman in the novel. From what I know of Brosnan and read in interviews, I think he’d want to go in the direction I’d want to take Bond, though I’m not certain producers of the series would agree."
This isn’t the first time I’ve heard talk of a “Casino Royale” remake. Hot Dog mentioned it a few months back, saying there’s already talk of it, with Michael Madsen rumoured to be featuring heavily in it – reprising his “Die Another Day” character, Damian Falco. Watch this Space.
