Daniel Craig - Bond Producer Keen To Get Her Hands On Daniel Craig's Swimming Trunks

Bond movie fans bidding for Daniel Craig's CASINO ROYALE swimming trunks at an upcoming memorabilia auction could find themselves up against producer Barbara Broccoli.

The movie mogul, who took over the 007 film franchise from her father Cubby, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first Bond movie by selling off collectibles and props from the vaults just outside London.

And there are a few items she's keen to buy back: "My favourite items are Daniel Craig's swimming trunks from Casino Royale, which I'd like to bid on myself, and one of the Aston Martins that Daniel drove in Quantum (of Solace)."

Broccoli wishes there were more items available for the upcoming Global Bond Day Christie's sale - but many iconic bits and pieces were simply thrown away.

She tells Wenn, "Over the years we've been collecting things because a lot of things disappeared. When United Artists (studio) closed their offices in New York a lot of stuff was just thrown out, like the original artwork. It's just awful.

"I know a lot of fans tried to salvage things out of the dumpster. In some cases we've bought things back and have exhibited them, so the fans can see them."

The upcoming auction will benefit Unicef.
