Bond Swaps Brain For Brawn

JAMES BOND film-makers axed the gadgets from the new 007 movie because audiences had tired of cliched special effects and unrealistic plots. Instead, the superspy - played by DANIEL CRAIG - will be forced to rely on force to overcome bad guys in CASINO ROYALE, which is due for release later this year (05). Second-time Bond director MARTIN CAMPBELL says, "Even after GOLDENEYE I remember thinking, 'How many control rooms, how many madmen can take over the world?'" Co-producer BARBARA BROCCOLI adds, "If you don't grow and change, you die and we felt this was the right time, right story and Daniel was the right guy."

Who are they(Barbara Broccoli) tryng to con! Doesshe think we're as stupid or ignorant as they are!For 2 years, they couldn't think of how to proceed,they couldn't name a new Bond, or even get a Director!Finally, Quentin Tarintno thought of an idea, & publicly announced that he would like to direct thenext 007 adventure! He even suggested the first 007novel, Casino Royale to to be movie title! He approached EON, with the idea(without any ideas oftheir own), & they sat on the idea, til they could claim(steal) the idea! The gritter Bond & how 007started was Quentin's idea. But it goes to show youthat Barbara & Michael doesn't have any class, sinceCubby died!
