Those responsible for the series “James Bond” are currently thinking a lot about how the successful franchise will continue. After the Daniel Craig era is over, it’s time for a fresh start with a new actor. But it’s not just about this personality that needs to be thought about. What will the new Bond movies look like? What stories should they tell? There’s help from Quentin Tarantino, as he has a very clear idea of what the next Bond films should do.
Tarantino’s Bond idea: turn the books into a movie
To the He revealed his approach to reporter Baz Bamigboye over a coffee together in Cannes. He has thought for a long time that those responsible for Bond just read through the classic books Ian Fleming to film. The old movies with Connery and Co. after all, are actually movie adaptations of these books, but “they took a little bit of the plot, maybe the Bond girl or the villain and then they went their separate ways,” says Tarantino.
According to Tarantino, the new Bond should be used to make movies with titles like “Casino Royale”, “Live and Let Die”, “Moonraker” or “From Russia with Love”, but stick to the original novels: “I therefore believe they shouldn’t be making remakes of the movies, but this time actually filming the books, as they were written. It would all be brand new movies.” Tarantino gives in to the conversation admits that some of the templates are quite difficult.
Will Tarantino get back together? No chance!
When asked by Bamigboye if he would postpone his planned retirement as a film director to get the chance to direct a Bond film, he is clear: No, his upcoming work”The film criticwill be his last feature film. However, he still keeps the production of TV series, short films or plays open as an option for the future. In addition, he will probably continue to write books.
Quentin Tarantino once planned to direct a Bond movie. After the success of “Pulp Fiction”, he tried to get the rights to “Casino Royale”. At the time, he wanted to film the book faithfully to the work – set in the 1960s and not as part of a series, but as a single film. But as he revealed to Bamigboye, that quickly fell apart as he had to find out that the producers behind the Bond series, the Broccoli family, had closed this latest rights gap. For a long time, the rights to “Casino Royale” were not owned by the Bond filmmakers.
