Absolutely! Much truer to the original characters, and certainly not as over-the-top as Police Academy 3 & 4.

Then we had all the Controversy of the New actor for Police academy Five. The Blond hair
the lack of several old characters, Still it made a fortune.  If only we had some kind of
expert to explain it all to us.   ajb007/shifty

Re: Will Bond 24 be a remake of "Live and let Die" ?

These Idris Elba rumours are starting to piss me off. They have recently rebooted the series with CR and I cant see them using a black actor anytime soon. He would make a decent villian though. In todays polictical climate, I'm assuming I should highlight the fact that I don't vote for the BNP or support the EDL as I'm sure my statement will be taken by some as having racist undertones lol

Re: Will Bond 24 be a remake of "Live and let Die" ?

I think the rumours come from the fact that Elba has put in a barnstorming performance in Luther, and has international appeal and the fact that

It's trolling.

Exactly! And I suspect he knows it.

Live and Let Die is the first bond film I need saw as a 10 year old ! It could be re done ...... but the atmosphere of the 1973 film will not be matched

Re: Will Bond 24 be a remake of "Live and let Die" ?

Although, I have to say seeing an adaptation of "Live and Let Die" the novel done in a film in a way that was true to the way Fleming wrote it would really be enjoyable.  It's still one of my favorite Fleming novels.


Why would any Bond film have to be true to one of Fleming's novels?  Most of the movies tend to be a lot better than the novels.  Fleming was a colorful writer, but not a great one.  At least to me.


And a remake of "Live and Let Die"?  How unoriginal.  Why not do an adaptation of a John Gardner or Raymond Benson novel?

Re: Will Bond 24 be a remake of "Live and let Die" ?

Just watched LALD (1972) and I don't think a remake would be appropriate. However, I would just love to see a "homage" to the opening scene in Bond's home.....just imagine....

Craig in bed with a hottie in his super cool minimalist pad somewhere in South London. Doorbell rings, knock, knock....Craig gets out of bed in boxers not bothering to put a housecoat on! At the door is Ralph Feinns, M! Briefing ensues over coffee. Moneypenny arrives with plane tickets and in walks Ben Wishaw as Q with a new watch!

Could be an awesome start to Bond 24! Anyone else think so???

Re: Will Bond 24 be a remake of "Live and let Die" ?

For me at least I've had enough of all the Homages to past Films. I'd like them
to stop, and come up with some new great scenes.  Stop looking back and push
forward
, Bond is cool and even trendy again, So go for it. The killing of Sévérine
is a case in point of a new scene which I can see being used in Bond Documentaries
along with, The croc jump,  etc for years to come.

I agree.

Re: Will Bond 24 be a remake of "Live and let Die" ?

I do like the idea of using elements from the Fleming novels, even though the novel it came from has already been adapted for example the Felix Shark scene from License to Kill and the Keelhaughling scene from For your eyes only existing in Fleming's Live and let die.
