Topic: Cary Fukunaga - Sight & Sound

The April edition of Sight & Sound has a one-pager with Cary Fukunaga.

9 Questions - and some interesting answers.

Due to copyright,  I’m not going to photo the page, but a couple of interesting snippets...

(You may already know some/all of this. I’m just (still) avoiding any thread with ‘spoilers’ contained in them!).

- the original Danny Boyle script was ‘completely thrown away’. Brocolli / Wilson insisted on that.
- he’s the first Bond director with a writing credit on a Bond film and writing continued through production.
- according to him, ‘there’s a lot of YOLT, OHMSS and Goldeneye in there’!

Like I said, a short one-pager but very interesting. A couple of pics but nothing we haven’t seen before.

Worth having a look if you have Sight & Sound (which is a top film magazine) in a store near you.

Apparently, full review of the film in the next edition - though I figure that is unlikely now.

Yes. Considerably.

Thank you, Kind Sir!
YOLT, GE and OHMSS, those are some top tier Bond films right there. Goldeneye is the one that surprises me the most, and the series seems to focus on homaging the Connery age. No mention of DN on that list, which is interesting.

Cheers, Ferinstal!

No surprise for me that GE gets a nod, since the 25th anniversary is coming up. I pointed out elsewhere what I think two nods to GE are - and with Cary being a gamer, we can see that in at least one BTS photo, GE64 has inspired him.

Nice to get confirmation though. ajb007/martini

Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.

Hopefully now Boyle can blab about what he was planning.

IMHO the YOLT, OHMSS and Goldeneye references, assuming for the first two it's the films, not the books, he's talking about, are related to

Spoiler YOLT - a large underground base
OHMSS - a biological warfare weapon
Goldeneye - the Russians are the baddies in some way

I wonder if as part of Boyle's moving on from the production there is some restriction on (Boyle) sharing details about the Hodge/Boyle script for a certain period of time? One would also wonder whether or not EON owns the rights to that script?

What could these plot borrowings be?

Of course we're all hoping for a Garden of Death scenario, though who knows if that's what Fukanaga means. But I've also thought the phrase "you only live twice" could just as easily relate to the cloning plot we keep suspecting.

I wonder what the Goldeneye references could be? I see no hints in the trailers, except there's two double ohs.

and OHMSS? well, Madeleine seems to be a major character throughout, so it's not her death ... although one of the posters does show a windshield with bulletholes.
But in OHMSS, Blofeld was creating a biological weapon. and there have been rumours the real reason the film was delayed was because the plot got too close to real world events, meaning coronavirus. Could that be the OHMSS content in this film?

What if he's not talking about the movie, but the actual Goldeneye ranch in Jamaica?

Some people would complain even if you hang them with a new rope
