A Grittier, More Realistic Bond?

by | February 24, 2005 | Comments

Director Martin Campbell is going back to the original material for the next Bond film, "Casino Royale," he told the New York Daily News. The film will adapt the 1953 novel to the present day, but will attempt to be grittier, more realistic, and less action-based. "In the new film, Bond is essentially starting out in his career, and has just recently become part of the double-0 section," Campbell said." The idea is to put a bit of the dash back in Bond. By the end of the movie, the character will have been forged into the wiser, harder Bond we know." Campbell said he’s interested in "humanizing" 007.
