ANOTHER "Thunderball" Remake??

by | June 30, 2006 | Comments

Movie producer Kevin McClory owns "some" of the rights to the old-school Bond classic "Thunderball," which explains why, several years ago, he was able to mount a Bond semi-remake called "Never Say Never Again" over at WB. Bond purists don’t really consider it an actual part of the series, but hey, it brought Sean Connery back, so it can’t be all bad. Anyway, looks like McClory is once again up to his old tricks.

From IGN FilmForce: "Despite a long court battle that MGM (now part of Sony) won against McClory – the purpose of which was to prevent him from starting his own rival Bond franchise – the rumor suggests that the producer is looking to move forward on a new remake of "Thunderball." As he did by hiring ex-007 Sean Connery to star in "Never Say Never Again," McClory is said to want to get Pierce Brosnan to reprise his role. Brosnan was famously dumped in favor of Daniel Craig, who stars in the forthcoming "Casino Royale."

IGNFF also debunks the rumor that a band called "Goldfrapp" is performing the "Casino Royale" tune. ("Goldfrapp"? Goofy name for a band…)
