Re: Post-Craig speculation about rebooting

If Apple ends up buying MGM, as the latest rumours have it, I think we'll see a very different Bond. I'd love to see an adaptation of the Warren Ellis comics, as both Vargr and Eidolon were excellent. But I'd opt for a generic, not-so-continuity-heavy Bond, just being assigned a mission and fulfilling it. If we could give a rest to the "rogue agent" trope, that would be also great. So far we've had Bond resigning in CR, being disavowed in QoS, being seemingly killed and brought back in SF, acting without official orders in Sp and being brought from retirement in NTTD. Please let the man have a proper job for one friggin' film.

I don't know what turn the films would take if Apple bought out MGM and partnering with EON.....but one thing I do know, EON's ongoing MGM financial aggravation will no longer be an issue....... ajb007/smile and Bond will always be seen using Apple products ajb007/lol .
