Bond 23

Whether you liked "Quantum of Solace" or not, Bond will return to the screen someday and Daniel Craig will don his dark and gritty Bond persona.
But pray tell, what are Craig's thoughts on the next Bond?
Forster, director of "Quantum," wanted it to be the mid-part of a trilogy. Collider got to talk to Craig and asked if that was going to be the case.

“No f***ing way. I’m done with that story. I want to lie on a beach for the first half an hour of the next movie drinking a cocktail.”

Okay Mr. Craig. So you are down with Bond having sequels and want to start a new story. Bond origins have been told and he is ready to start something new. Craig had some more thoughts on where Bond should go next.

“We’ve finished this story as far as I’m concerned. We’ve got a great set of bad guys. There is an organization that we can use whenever we want to. The relationship between Bond and M is secure and Felix is secure. Let’s try and find where Moneypenny came from and where Q comes from. Let’s do all that and have some fun with it.”

So Mr. Craig, fans have been disappointed in not seeing Moneypenny and Q in these past Bond films, so you are suggesting bringing them in. The origins of Bond are told, now tell the origins of these characters. Sounds lovely. Wonder if we will ever learn the origins of M.

“We don’t know when we’re going to do the next Bond. Nobody’s thinking about it at the moment. We’re giving it a rest for the moment. If I can squeeze something in next year I will…but I haven’t figured out what that’ll be yet. But nothing in the cold.”

Great, can't wait for the next Bond movie even though I have yet to see Quantum. I enjoy the campy style of Connery and Brosnan, so "Casino Royale" was not high on my favorite Bond film lists. We will have to wait to hear more about Bond 23.
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
