Topic: The title - ideas and rumours

What to do here?  - just look at the title  ajb007/bond

I have an idea:
Cerberus is a name from Greek mythology for the the "hound of Hades". It's a monstrous multi-headed dog who guards the gates of the underworld, preventing the dead from leaving. Kerberos is the Greek form of the word.
It could be the name of a new villan organisation, each branch or member being one of the heads of the hound. The title can actually be used as a title if the Garden of Death story is used, since Cerberus/Kerberos prevents the dead from leaving.

Interesting.

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

Cerberus was mentioned many years ago, rumoured to be the next Bond title (can't remember the year)...was all a big hoax though...

I still don't understand why that title hasn't been used. It could be the name of an operation, or really anything else if some thought is put into it.

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

I agree Matt, it's such a versatile word. And, being Italian for 'risk' it could even just be the word itself if part of the plot took place in Italy.

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

I read a rumour ( That's all it is ) that MG Wilson hates it as a title ?  Anyone know if that's  true.

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

Never heard that TP, but it would make sense given that it's the last remaining Fleming title that would work rather easily. Maybe it's just that EON don't want to take the risico on it. Get it? Risico? I'll get me hat...

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

It is odd, as I agree with everyone  that it's the best of what's left and perfectly
usable.  POAL is fine but a little bland, THR could be used, with 007 in NY I guess
will never get used. Or its original  title tweaked a bit.

I'm torn because to my English-speaking ear it sounds great as a title, but it also means "risk" in German and somehow a Bond film title shouldn't just be an everyday word (or be associated with a board game). I know we're not a world language but it may apply to other languages as well, I don't know.

Spectre is also a regular word, but because it had multiple meanings it worked (though it gave spoiled SPECTRE and Blofeld's returns). Risico would be similar.

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

True, almost forgot that about Spectre. Coming to think of it I'm glad they didn't translate it like they used to (and then the acronym didn't make sense...)

"- That is something to be afraid of."

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

Nothing wrong with an acronym I always had a soft spot for .. THRUSH !

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

Let's just hope that they will never call a Bond movie "James Bond".

You know - like Rocky Balboa, John Rambo or most recently - JASON BOURNE.  ajb007/rolleyes

On the other hand that title would make sense if they would make a movie about Bond's youth - a deep origin story starting from the death of his parents. I actually would be pleased with a title like that.

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

No more one-word titles! It should be a mouthful with "Die", "Death" or "Kill" in there.  ajb007/lol

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

Having used Quantum of Solace I see absolutely no reason why they couldn't use Risico.

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

As I've said, they should use all 4 remaining Fleming titles, they are nearly there so why not finish off when so close?!

007 in New York would have to be changed though. Something with New York in the title. Agent in New York perhaps.

Risico would be a nice one for them to save until last. Plus, with Skyfall and Spectre, I couldn't take a 3rd one-worder in a row.

My chosen title as I've said before is "The Garden Of Death". It's never been a title, but it would be the coolest sounding title in a long time for me.

1 - Avtak, 2 - Op, 3 - Ltk, 4 - Lald, 5 - Fyeo, 6 - Ohmss, 7 - Sf, 8 - Dn, 9 - Ge, 10 - Daf, 11 - Tmwtgg, 12 - Tswlm, 13 - Mr, 14 - Tld, 15 - Yolt, 16 - Sp, 17 - Gf, 18 - Frwl, 19 - Dad, 20 - Qos, 21 - Tnd, 22 - Twine, 23 - Tb, 24 - Cr

Always thought Risico could make an awesome villain name, or a plot device like Thunderball.



If they do make a Spectre trilogy, after 'Spectre', I've had this idea of the second film being called 'Blofeld' and the third being called 'Garden of Death' or 'Shatterhand' (preferably Shatterhand).

I'm suprised the word Shadow hasn't been used in a title yet, maybe if a main character gets killed in a film (e.g if Madelaine was killed at the start of Bond 25) I think 'Shadow of Death' would be good.



I also think some John Gardner titles could be used, such as 'Icebreaker' or 'For Special Services'.

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

Risico aside IMO none of the remaining titles are suitable for films. I agree that some JG titles could be successfully used.

I honestly think they could all be used. Quantum Of Solace was used.

There is only 4 left. May aswell! That's the completionist in me though

1 - Avtak, 2 - Op, 3 - Ltk, 4 - Lald, 5 - Fyeo, 6 - Ohmss, 7 - Sf, 8 - Dn, 9 - Ge, 10 - Daf, 11 - Tmwtgg, 12 - Tswlm, 13 - Mr, 14 - Tld, 15 - Yolt, 16 - Sp, 17 - Gf, 18 - Frwl, 19 - Dad, 20 - Qos, 21 - Tnd, 22 - Twine, 23 - Tb, 24 - Cr

1 - Moore, 2 - Dalton, 3 - Craig, 4 - Connery, 5 - Brosnan, 6 - Lazenby

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

Risico is def the best to use.  Maybe it would have been cool as a project name instead of nine eyes.

007 in New York is a shocker I would not want to see
Property of a lady has already been used in Octopussy (I would find it bland as a film title)
Hildebrand has already just been used in SPECTRE so wouldn't really work either

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

I like both Risico and Property of a Lady. I also like A Whisper of Hate, a shortened version of a chapter title from CR.
It would be nice if they used For Special Services, technically it's Fleming too.

Re: The title - ideas and rumours

I like the title Blood on the Snow. Now it's a title of a Jo Nesbø novel, so it might not work.
What do you think of Blood on White Snow?
