^I think you have to accept more than two different Bond canons, there's the books, then the grittier films, then the more fantastical films.

AVTAK does have a great title track at least. And yeah, I think DAD gets a lot of unfair critisism sometimes. To me it only really loses its way in the Antonov at the end. Forget the invisible car, whoever thought Toby Stephens should have an exo-suit should never work in Hollywood again!

Wonder if it's time for a favourite Bond films thread again

Eh.

I've never read a non-Felming novel. But I have read some of the Lincoln Rhyme line and was never as impressed with it as others are. That's not to say Purvis and Wade can't make something work.

I couldn't make it through the book but I dig the title, if indeed that is actually the title they're going with.

I've read the book, and it could make an interesting film. It's just...well it's just a bit low key, especially in terms on the villain's scheme. It would send Bond to South Africa which would be interesting, and Dubai (wonder if the Emirates sponsership is in place yet?) I think the finale might need bulking up a bit but yeah, the more I think about it the more I could see it working as a Craig film...

Assuming you want to see Bond vs. a binman!

^ The article though doesn't say that they're adapting the book, just using the book's title (allegedly). If it is an adaption then this would be going away from the "original" story that I believe the production has been talking about since the start. John Logan was doing revisions on the screenplay last I checked or have heard about...maybe someone told him about the book?

Well yes and no they don't say that it's being adapted per-say, but they do postulate that it is a real possibility that this will be the story for Bond 23:

Bleeding Cool Article entitled New James Bond Movie Seems To Have Its Name And Story said:

So… do we not only have the name of Bond 23, but also its basic storyline? We might even have more info, if the screenplay hems quite closely to Deaver’s book.

^ That isn't a postulation at all. The article is asking right out if "Carte Blanche" is not only the title of the film but also if the book is also the story for the movie. Then says at the bottom of the paragraph that we would have real information about the plot of the movie if it is indeed an adaption of the book.

On my reading of the report, the reference to the movie title as Carte Blanche just strikes me as lazy journalism, someone confusing the new book title with the new movie, which hasn't yet been titled. An excitable internet journalist has then put two and two together and made 5.

It strikes me as a very suitable Daniel Craig era Bond title.

But I guess we'll see what happens.

A step-up from QoS, which despite being genuine Fleming, I still go "Huh?" whenever I hear it.

I somehow end up thinking it sounds like a special detergent for getting stains off lace.

^ In which case, they should have kept that name for a Bill Clinton biopic.
