Oscar winner Paul Haggis was making the rounds doing press this past weekend for his new film In the Valley of Elah where he was peppered with questions about Bond 22.
Haggis is currently rewriting the Bond 22 screenplay for Sony and director Marc Forster. “I’m on page 22. I’m not writing it today because I’m here, but I was writing it up until 8 p.m. last night. It’s a lot of fun. It’s a whole different set of muscles,” Haggis said at a press conference, according to Collider.com.
He continued, “It’s something I was really concerned about doing because I liked Casino Royale so much, I had such fun doing it and I thought I could only fail by trying to do it again. But I’m giving it a shot and it’s an original and it’s not based on any book or short story or anything that Ian Fleming had done. Although it is based on Ian Fleming ideas. And it starts right after the last one, two minutes after Casino Royale this movie starts.” Haggis also said the film will not be jokier, as had previously been reported.
ComingSoon.net quoted Haggis as saying that rumored contender Carice van Houten would not be playing the film’s Bond girl role. “She’s great, isn’t she — but she’s not going to be in this one,” Haggis reportedly said. “Everyone says they know what the ending is, and they’re wrong. Everyone thinks they know about the Bond Girls, and they’re wrong.”
