QT pissed about no "shout outs" for Casino Royale

Post by FilmGuy » Fri Mar 23, 2007 11:32 am

This is a funny story.

TARANTINO'S BOND GRUDGE
QUENTIN TARANTINO has attacked JAMES BOND movie bosses for stealing his idea to remake CASINO ROYALE, and not giving him the credit. The PULP FICTION director pitched the idea of making the movie with PIERCE BROSNAN as 007, but was told it wasn't possible. Bond producers then replaced Brosnan with DANIEL CRAIG and made Casino Royale, directed by MARTIN CAMPBELL. Tarantino says, "I resent that none of them gave me a shout out that I'm the one (that) got them making Casino Royale." He claims when movie mogul HARVEY WEINSTEIN suggested Tarantino to studio chiefs, they snubbed the idea - fearing his movie would be too good. Tarantino says, "They told him, 'We're afraid Quentin's going to make it too good and f**k the rest of the series."

I guess that's why they didn't let Spielberg make one either.

I think QT should just make his own spy film and forget fuckin James Bond. Hes too good for that sequel stuff anyways.

I think it wouldve been a kick ass movie if QT directed it...

Why stay so safe with the bondploitation? Like Scarface said, wasnt it intended as a new darker bond anyway? Might as well done it all out QT style...

Can't really imagine QT doing a remake or a sequel or anything that he didn't have a large part in creating prior to fliming.

WHAT! I can't believe what I'm reading. There is no way is hell that "Bond" and "shit" go in the same sentence (unless we're talking about Barroid Bonds).

Are you talking about Barry Bonds, the greatest hitter of all time? Steroids are a thing of the past, human growth hormones, which is undetectable is the new breed, makes your nuts a lot smaller too, but it also makes your wang seem a whole lot bigger.

HA! Greatest hitter of all time, that's a bunch of bullshit my friend.

Greatest Hitter of All Time belongs to Hammerin' Hank. A REAL hitter - not some doped up monkey.

Okay people. Here's ALL the proof you need to know that Casino Royale was Quentin's idea! And Paul Haggis got the story credit! On this Charli Rose interview which took place in December 1997 you will see Qts brilliant mind at work, when he mentions his James Bond idea:

Just listen in to the first minute.

what is everyone talking about story credit!? it's a book adaptation! lol.

plus, just because he said he'd want it to do, doesn't mean it was his idea. I mean, who doesn't wanna do a james bond movie.... fact is, it's done now.... I understand he's somewhat pissed, but seriously, there's not too much he can do about it.

true.  but there is a long story with casino royale.  he first wanted to do it as a follow-up to pulp fiction.

Someone still gets a story credit for adapting the story into a cinematic presentation (structure & plot) - which is what Paul Haggis did. The other guys just wrote it.

They didnt copy exactly what QT said he wanted to do did they? They just made another movie of it. I dont get why hes so pissed. It must be because they didnt hire HIM to do it.

Who gives a shit anyways? Its water under the bridge. Why keep bringing this shit up at all?
