Re: 全tar Trek 3′: Roberto Orci Wants to Direct

Oh, the idea of doing another film with Brosnan is appalling in and of itself. He was almost as dull and doddering as Roger Moore.

Re: 全tar Trek 3′: Roberto Orci Wants to Direct

I didn't mind him that much (though how he was going to play a "younger" Bond is admittedly mysterious). He wasn't well-served by the scripts he got for the most part.

Re: 全tar Trek 3′: Roberto Orci Wants to Direct

Was Tarantino gonna do young Bond? I think that was more of an EON thing, because in the book CASINO ROYALE Bond is already a veteran 00-agent. The whole aspect of Bond being a newly promoted was something one of the producers has been thinking of doing for a long time and tried to go for that story after Roger Moore left the role but Cubby Broccoli rejected it.

Aside from that, I think Brosnan could have pulled it off with the right script and direction. I think by the 2000s he really grew up as an actor and CASINO ROYALE, if done in the style of the book, would have made a pretty good swan song for him. Some of my favorite moments of him as Bond is in DIE ANOTHER DAY, which is unfortunate because he got so much better in the role yet his films kept going downhill.

Brosnan could have also pulled off Craig Casino Royale. I think that only the beginning chase sequence would have been different, and that's it.

Nope. Not good or interesting enough. It would have bombed.

That's usually the case, yes.

Re: 全tar Trek 3′: Roberto Orci Wants to Direct

Brosnan was pretty popular as Bond, so I doubt it would have flopped. The closest there has ever been to a "flop" was LICENCE TO KILL, and that still made a lot of money despite seriously under-performing in the US.

Also, Roger Moore was awesome. You can't get more awesome than ending one of your flicks by rogering a hot babe in zero gravity. But I get it, I used to be a staunch Moore hater for a few years.

I don't hate him; I just don't give a fuck about him or most of the stiffs who've played Bond since Connery. Moore was particularly wooden and long in the tooth, though.

Parenthetically (and obviously), a writer coming up with the idea of Bond screwing someone in zero G doesn't confer awesomeness on the actor who happened to be playing him that time out.

Re: 全tar Trek 3′: Roberto Orci Wants to Direct

My favourite Bond between Connery and Craig was actually Timothy Dalton, who never really got his due. License to Kill is the stylistic predecessor to the Craig era, I still dig the heck out of that movie.

I consider The Living Daylights one of the best, if not the best, Bond film. It has everything, and Dalton is a fantastic Bond.
