He's the reason my wife went to see the movie "Troy" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" as well as the LotR flicks.

Hey!  If it's true, then for once my wife will actually be the one to suggest a Bond movie and I won't have to waste one of my movie picks on it!  :)

I'm suprised that people who aren't from the UK are even in consideration.

My vote goes to Ewan McGreggor all the way.

Really, I shouldn’t give two craps- the last few Bond films have been awful… but it would be nice if the knuckleheads behind the new productions would at least give some respect to the franchise, some great craftsmen once worked on the Bond films (Ken Adams prod. Designer comes to mind) and it’s very sad to see our generation of dim-witted, cash-cow tipping lemmings take a big ol’stinkin’ on their creation. :'(

Orlando Bloom as Bond! Not!

ANI[ WEDNESDAY, JULY 28, 2004 07:51:00 PM ]

LONDON: British actor Orlando Bloom actor has been signed by Miramax to play young James Bond in his new movie which is based on the college days of this widely popular secret agent.

There were rumours floating that Bloom is taking over the role of James Bond from Pierce Brosnan in the next film due out next November.

According to Ananova , Bond producers were looking for a new leading man and Bloom was the lucky guy who got the role.

Orlando Bloom is to play the new James Bond.

However, the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' heartthrob will not be replacing Pierce Brosnan as 007 - instead he will star in a movie about the suave spy' s younger days.

A source at Hollywood studios Miramax, who are making the film, revealed: "The story that Orlando will play Bond is true but we are doing a rather novel film about the young James Bond.
 
"The author, Ian Fleming, never really got into this period of his character 's life, but he did mention in 'You Only Live Twice' that Bond attended Fettes College, having been expelled from Eton.
Charlie Higson, who is writing the screenplay, has woven a wonderful tale around this." Miramax believe Orlando - who was recently tipped to take over from Pierce Brosnan in the regular Bond films - will be perfect for the role.

I"m a big Bond fan & this just... :-\

Wow that is an interesting turn of events...so Brosnan is Bond one more time and Bloom is Young Bond...

Agreed on McGregor, he'd be awesome

We had a thread about either Bond or things you never got into...Bond is one franchise that has little to no interest.  I liked Goldfinger alright but the others I have seen have all been so-so

My wife is a huge fan of the movies.  Hates Roger Moore, adores Sean Connery.  Likes George Lazenby, tolerates the rest.  Bond movies are automatic for us.  

I'm less picky about Bond, with three actors covering my three favorite bond flicks: Thunderball (Connery); Live and Let Die (Moore); Her Majesty's Secret Service (Lazenby).  

Now Jane Bond is a whole different story :P

Seems we have a tile for the next Bond film.

New Bond film has old Bond title

Still no word on who will play Bond.
I wonder if they will use or revamp the parody 1967 Casino Royale theme.   :D

Seven James Bonds at Casino Royale,
They came to save the world and win a gal at Casino Royale!
Six of them went to a heavenly spot,
The seventh on is going to a place were's it's terribly... hot.

The formula is safe with ole double-oh seven!
He's got a redhead in his arms!
Oh, he's a lover, when you are in trouble.

Have no fear, look's whos here...
James Bond...They've got him on the run...
With guns...and knives...we're fighting for our lives...
Have no fear, James Bond is here!
He's gonna save the world at Casino Royale!

Never fear, James Bond is here!   ;D
