Screenwriter Paul Haggis Enticed Back to "Bond 22"

by | May 24, 2007 | Comments

If you liked "Casino Royale," (and who didn’t?) you’ll be happy to know that the screenwriting trio is now back in action for the 22nd Bond flick.

The as-yet-untitled "Bond 22" was written by British screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, but producers recently lured Polishin’ Paul Haggis back to the project. Mr. Haggis, who also wrote (or co-wrote) "Crash," "Million Dollar Baby," and "Flags of Our Fathers," is generally credited with giving "Casino Royale" its tougher, grittier exterior. (One needs only to look at the Bond flicks written solely by the Wade & Purvis team — "Die Another Day" and "The World Is Not Enough" — to gauge how important Haggis’ input was.)

We still don’t know who the producers will pick as their director, but they’ll probably be making a decision pretty soon. "Bond 22" is scheduled for a November 2008 release date.
