Bond's Next Villain?

Vesper, writers talk Royale sequel.

by Stax

November 20, 2006 - Although Casino Royale has only just opened in theaters, some of the creative powers-that-be behind the film are already talking about the next (22nd) installment in the James Bond series.

In an interview with the BBC, longtime Bond screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade spoke about what fans might expect from the sequel. "In the next film the emphasis has to be on the unfinished emotional business at the end of Casino Royale," Wade said. "It has to be dealt with in such a way that his character continues to have an arc."

He continued, "It can't just be he's tough and he's tempered steel and totally impervious. There are things he still has to resolve. So that's the legacy of Casino Royale and it's important to have it so the actor has something to play."

In a more SPOILERISH interview, actress Eva Green, who portrays Bond's love interest in Casino Royale, revealed who she understands will be the villain in Bond 22.

"I think it's too confusing," Green told Entertainment Weekly about Vesper's motivations in Royale. "But they're going to do a second [movie] where you'll understand what's going on in her mind. It was really hard, and Barbara Broccoli helped me understand. You would think, wait a minute, she had an Algerian boyfriend, and she's been sent on this mission, and then she begins to feel guilty. She's in love with Bond. It's a deep love. The Algerian boyfriend was something light, an affair. So there's an internal conflict."

Green then revealed, "The plan is, the Algerian boyfriend is going to be the baddie in the second Bond, and we'll understand [better]. But you don't have to think about it too much."

This would seem to confirm recent rumors that Green will have a cameo in Bond 22 in a pre-recorded video message that Bond discovers.

In our on-camera interview with Daniel Craig, the new 007 advised IGN that in the next film Bond will go after "the threat behind the threat," targeting the No. 1 behind the organization Le Chiffre was associated with. He would also not rule out that this network might be SPECTRE.

Oooh. . .don't that last sentence just send chills down your spine?  Is it 2008 yet?

In a word, yes. I'd love to see that shadowy agency and one Ernst Stavro Blofeld make a glorious return to the world of Bond. Of course, it would probably be a vastly different kind of SPECTRE, probably smaller like in the books. But still, it would be a lot of fun.

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

this is awesome news, although if its a two part thing, perhaps it wont be SPECTRE/SMERSH, if it is that organisation, then i would hate for them to have Bond dispose of it in this 'sequel', i would love however for this to start a whole new series of Bond fighting the organisation

Something like Bond thinking he has ended SPECTRE by killing the 'head honcho', only to realise he has killed but a minor spec (no pun intended), and perhaps even the intorduction of a bald headed man we know well, although it would have to be done extremely well in my opinion not to come out as nothing more than a parody!

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

Why does SPECTRE have to keep coming back? There's plenty of indecent scoundrels in the world. They don't all have to belong to SPECTRE. They had a good thing going and killed it in GoldenEye with the Janus Syndicate. I'd like to see a new organization to keep Bond walking the razor's edge.

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

The best thing about SPECTRE, for me, is that it has the potential to be an excellent metaphor for the faceless, shape-shifting horror which confronts us all in the 21st century---it's not necessarily a Muslim extremist who might blow up your bus, your train or your office building.  It might be someone who looks just like you...and the fact that he might be doing it just for cash---rather than some religious or ideological dogma---is very disturbing.

I think SPECTRE is more relevant than ever.

Question, can they use SPECTRE? Because in the FRWL game they called it OCTOPUS, but didn't they shortly after pick up the rights to the name? The whole legal battle was such a mess anyway...

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

Great question.  I have no idea whether the Kevin McClory cluster***k casts a pall over the future use of SPECTRE or not.  This looks like a question for Messrs. Garvin and/or Hardyboy...

I can easily visualize SPECTRE putting the two Men in Straw Hats on a New York City street...

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

I think the idea of an enemy organization running over several films is a good idea, but I think SPECTRE has had it's day. They must make up something new.

11

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

Did anyone say SPECTRE?  I never heard SPECTRE.

One interview that I heard said that from now on there would be an intentional shift away from Russian villians - such as the ones seen in GE and TWINE.  In fact, no more commies (ala DAD)

The new villians will be more Al Queda like, a terrorist organisation that wants to cause trouble without any political affiliation.  While this also describes SPECTRE, I do believe that an attempt will be made to move away from previous movies and villians - be they commies or SPECTRE.

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

I also think it's about time Bond 22 got its own forum on AJB007. The world premiere of CR is in the (near) past, it would perhaps be bad form to set uo a forum for it sequel before, but now there is no reason why the debate about Bond 22 hasn't got a home.

13

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

As of this writing, Eon does not have the rights to use SPECTRE or Blofeld.

The easiest solution is to create a new evil organization.  Perhaps this organization is headed up by two evil twin Spang brothers, or better yet - Dr. Shatterhand.

Rest assured there will be one. Let's let the CR have a fair run first though (and don't worry about these Bond 22 threads, they'll get moved.

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

What happened to the Lord's Resistance Army, or whatever it was called? Wasn't that supposed to be the new criminal organization that Mr. White was part of?

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

Is it time for a Bond 22 forum and for all Bond 22 threads to be moved into there?

The LRA is an actual group in Uganda, and they were merely a client of whatever group Mr. White is with. Le Chiffre was just doing their laundry.

Strange that they would use a real group in the movie. I wonder is that means they would use a real group such as Al-Quaeda?

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

I think it would be wrong to use al-Quaeda. that's just too touchy material even for this Bond. How would he deal with it .... kill Bin Laden in Bond 23?
But I do think they should and will involve islamic terrorism in some way in the future. Vesper's ex-boyfriend is algerian and he will perhaps be the villan in Bond 22.

Re: REAL Bond 22 News!

SPECTRE would make a great villain organization again... more international in scope this time round...

I think EON should remake the films... in order of the novels.  Let's see a remake of Live and Let Die as new Bond number 2 and have it follow the novel!
