“Crash” and “Casino Royale” scribe Paul Haggis has admitted that the storyline for the upcoming 22nd James Bond film was thrown out late in development reports MI6.
Speaking to Esquire Magazine in early September, Haggis said “This one’s tougher than Casino Royale, which wasn’t a small amount of work, but there was an existing book. I thought I had come up with a terrific plot, and we’d worked it all the way through, and yesterday we tossed it out.”
As with “Casino Royale,” Haggis is rewriting a first draft script by regular Bond scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Whether this means any of Purvis or Wade’s stuff will remain is unknown. Haggis is presently in Italy concentrating on completing the script.
Meanwhile Brazillian press are reporting that local starlets Juliana Paes and Fernanda Lima are being linked to the lead Bond Girl, which was previously described as “a Latina actress in her late twenties, preferably with South American roots.”
