Did Daniel Craig Accidentally Reveal The Title Of BOND 22??

Published at: Dec. 13, 2007, 11:02 p.m. CST by merrick

Merrick here...
It's important to file this one under "rumor"/conjecture/extrapolation...but this makes sense in many ways. Prossor sent in a few messages regarding Daniel Craig's recent appearance on a UK show called This Morning (website HERE). Seems Craig may have gotten a bit tangled when discussing the new Bond film & possibly insinuated a bit too much about its title. Here's a bit more from Prossor...
I was watching Daniel Craig on the This Morning interview discussing The Golden Compass. Well, he was asked about Bond 22 and he might have blew the cover and revealed the title for it. Paraphrasing: "It's more of a number. Because the first movie dealt with him earning his 00 status and now he is 007 for the first time". He was asked if 007 is actually the title, but said he might have said too much. This is mind blowing, but makes more sense than other titles that have been thrown around like Risico and The Property of a Lady - since this isn't really a word yet the iconic number has been there since the beginning. If you use this call me Prossor

007. Makes a lot of sense. Short, simple, and nearly anyone would know who it identifies & what kind of movie it represented. We'll see...

    Theme Song

    by PirateEmery

    The theme song in Casino Royale didn't actually mention "Casino Royale" anyway, so I see no reason why the theme song for 007 has to be "007."<p> But hey, I'd enjoy a theme song that took the actual James Bond theme and put words to it.<p> Bond 22 = 007: I approve.

  • Dec. 13, 2007, 11:49 p.m. CST

    Why not stick to the books and do Live and Let Die?

    by andus

    Seriously if they stuck to the original source material as they did for the most part with Casino Royale (kind of a cop out to switch from Baccarat to Texas Hold 'Em, but everything else was better than Bond has been since From Russia With Love). Live and Let Die is a cool story....much cooler than the Cheesefest that sprung Roger Moore on everyone. Oh and Bond was referred to as 007 in Casino Royale..by one of the MI6 underlings I think.

    This is following Chris Nolan's 'Batman Blueprint'

    by Canada's King

    This sounds very similar to calling the sequel to Batman Begins, "The Dark Knight." Having the film named after the lead character also distinguishes it from the pre-Casino Royale films, something the creative team involved has wanted to do since hiring Martin Campbell.

    by Magma Suit

    I am torn between wanting movies based off the original novels done right (i.e. closer to the source material) but as cool as that would be, it would be pissing on 40 years of Bond films that are pretty damn good. And as much as Casino Royale was a reboot, it wasn't that revolutionary when you consider that just about every new Bond qualifies as a reboot (except maybe that Connery, Lazenby, and Moore are the same Bond and Dalton and Brosnan are the same since the actors were all about the same age and they share a bit of coninuity). But I digress.

Maybe that's precisely what they're planning to do? <br> <br> It would have to be updated (like Royale was) but yeah, much cooler story than the film - except the film had that crazy car stunt, so that makes up for it a little... <br> <br> Either way, I can't see them calling it "Live and Let Die" so they should keep looking for a title!

    by Boromir187

    They couldn't call the theme song "007" anyway, as there is already one by that title. The drum & trumpet heavy classical piece that appears throughout many of the Connery films (courtesy of John Barry) is called "007". It's always sort of been Bond's second theme, though it hasn't been used much since the start of the 70's.

    Once more for those in the cheap seats. THERE WILL BE NO BLOFIELD. They are not legally allowed to use Blofield or SPECTRE as the rights belong with the McClory estate. Property of A Lady was a short story from the Octopussy Collection of Fleming short stories that concerned a Faberge egg and the KGB. That story, plus others fromt he collection were used already to form the basis of the film Octopussy. Finally, there will be no remake of Live And Let Die as all story elements from the book have been mined from it already, except for the fact that it has a chapter called "Nigger Heaven" and it is basically about how those damned darkies can't be trusted.

    This sounds like Craig is being taken way out of context just like the comments about the "humor" that as supposed to be injected back into the series in the next movie. Just as 007 in New York was a horrible title for a short story, I have a hard time believing they'd name the film '007'.

    Daniel Craig IS James Bond

    by theabusetaker

    Anyone who has read any of the books knows that Daniel Craig perfectly embodies the true character the way it was written by Ian Fleming. Casino Royale was a "real" James Bond film. And I will be accosted or beat to death onscreen for this one, but Timothy Dalton is the next in line as far as accuracy to the true character Bond. Here's to Craig playing Bond until he's 50 or 60, just like Moore.

    accuracy isn't everything, theabusetaker

    by I Dunno

    Yes, the Bond of the novels was humorless and boring. And so was Dalton. That doesn't mean his screen presence didn't suck. Connery and Brosnan played Bond as a cold blooded killer who also looked like he was having fun bagging women, chugging vodka and gambling while killing people in a tuxedo. That's the movie Bond. The straight up serious version was already done with Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer. I liked Casino Royale but I hope Bond evolves into what the movie Bond is.

    by Spandau Belly

    I agree with you in that Licence To Kill and Casino Royale best represent the tone of the novels, but, like a lot of people, I love the cartoonish screen adaptation of the other guys who played Bond. The cartoony Bond films have such a unique look and character, whereas gritty spy dramas all kinda blur to together. I love Bourne, Ronin, and stuff like that, but I also love the sillyness of Goldfinger and ever since Brosnan was axed there's nobody else out there doing silly comic book espionage movies, it's all this serious stuff.<br><br>The same goes for CONAN. I keep hearing how the movie had nothing in common with the books, but I love the Arnie film and have no interest in seeing a CONAN movie where is isn't a moronic bodybuilder in an absurd macho odessey.<br><br>I'm sure you've noticed how popular the other 19 inaccurate jokey Bond movies and can accept that they have legitimate fans.

    What's with all the character name titles now

    by Reel American Hero

    Granted 007 isn't his name exactly, but still. It would be a better title than Property Of A Lady, that sounds like a cheap romance novel my wife would read or something.

    That is a truly terrible idea for a title

    by Freakemovie

    Totally messes up the tradition, and if they were gonna do that they should've done it for Craig's first film. "007" would, ironically, make it feel like another random sequel to an action movie, not a friggin James Bond movie. I can't imagine this is possibly true.

    "007 in New York"

    by Prossor

    was a short story in one of Flemings books so the number has been in title before. The centric title makes more sense after the director Forster said "The most interesting place for a James Bond movie to go is inward - deeper into Bond himself." http://tinyurl.com/29q2sa looks to be a character piece for Bond hismself once more

    James Bond 22: Two Ducks Swimming

    by Maniaq

    Thanks for the link, Prossor - that article puts a lot of things into perspective and it's obvious they have chosen this director to do a Bond film that goes even further away from the "cartoony" Bond - which I like... <br> <br> Even though his acting was way too ham-fisted and his films kept his tongue planted firmly in-cheek, reading the books I somehow always pictured Roger Moore as Bond. Maybe coz he was the first Bond I remember watching as a kid? I dunno... Just seemed to fit the way Fleming described him. I'll have to revisit the Dalton movies to see how close they got him to the book persona. <br> <br> I agree that the decision to ditch the formula from the previous 19 films was the right one and let's not try to reinvent him INTO that character! He is NOT Austin Powers - let MIKE MYERS do the "silly comic book espionage movies" and keep this franchise more INTERSTING. <br> <br> And that means somebody put a little IMAGINATION into thinking up a bloody title!

    yes, he did accidently give away the title, but it ISN'T 007....

    by Peace on you

    it's 008! In a Golden Compass interview on UK's GMTV he referred to there being a 'great atmosphere on the double 'o' eight set' and then looked embarrassed at his mistake. This was on Thursday (sorry for the late post). Sounds good and, as it's released in 2008 it will be a bit easier to market I would guess.

    by Motoko Kusanagi

    It's more likely that "007" is PART of the title than that it's THE title.

    by Motoko Kusanagi

    that's not a bad Bond movie at all. Only the last 20 minutes take place in space. They may be over-the-top but don't make this a shitty movie. Don't know why people hate this so much. Better focus the hate on these terrible Bond flicks: THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN (boring as hell), THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH (just terrible) and ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE (I don't even count this crappy snot flick as a Bond movie).

    007 Would Make A Great Bond Title Except....

    by Colier Rannd

    ...Craig made a Jason Bourne movie. And it's almost a guarantee the next one will be too. So if you're comfy with 007 being a title for a movie that is James Bond in name only sure.

  • Dec. 16, 2007, 8:54 a.m. CST

    Come on. It's hardly mindblowing.

    by Ben_Gazzara

    It would be mindblowing if the title was "Yet Another James Bond Movie", or "Bond's Descent into 3-D Buggery." 007 is just a simple little title that's perfectly okay. It even kinda follows Stallone's lead of keeping the names of his latest series installments to the name of the protagonist.
