Hm…good point, Dead Nigga I agree totally!
And we shouldn’t take this shit seriously, QT is always saying he “is interested” in making a movie. From GTA Vice City to an Airplane Thriller, to James Bond, to an Italian gangster film to…shit, just take what he says with a grain of salt.
First of all, even though I posted it, the GTA rumor is pretty much unsubstantiated at the moment. I posted that topic asking if anyone had any solid information on it. So far, nothing. Secondly, QT just might make that Itallian giallo (sp?) and the same goes for the Airplane thriller.
Finally, Casino Royale stands just as good a chance of being made as any of the aforementioned films. Its not like QT is just going to STOP making movies between (since QT said he doesn’t feel up to another epic just yet) Inglorious Bastards and after Inglorious Bastards. And he doesn’t necessarily have to water himself down for a Bond film. QT’s dialogue is more than just a string of curses and pop culture references. Its much more sophisticated than that, and I’m sure, being a Bond fan himself, QT has more respect for the franchise than to simply devolve it into a f-bomb, splatter filled mess.
QT knows movies, and by virtue of that, QT knows BOND movies. He knows the rules and limitations of the universe he’s working within just as he understand the rule and limitations of the Elmore Leonard universe and Jackie Brown turned out great. If anyone is capable of breathing new life into the Bond series, its QT.
