Ralph Fiennes would consider playing James Bond, if producers hired Quentin Tarantino to make a movie more faithful to 007 author IAN FLEMING's novels.

The English actor hates the way the superspy has evolved - and urges movie makers to strip the suave secret agent of his gadgets and women and take him back to his 1950s roots.

Fiennes says, "I wish that, just once, they'd go back to the books and revive Ian Fleming's original Bond.

"Take it back to the 50s, get rid of the busty girls and make it darker again. There are too many gadgets now, too many fast cars, The films are more like car commercials nowadays.

"I think that Quentin Tarantino could be a great person to do it, make it darker, how it was meant to be."
