Bond 22 Plot Details — Where is Q and Moneypenny?

2 Comments

The boys over at IGN has got a nice breakdown of the recent news regarding the upcoming Bond 22 movie, including who will be back, who won’t, who is still not going to make an appearance, and a little something about the film’s plot. The first thing to know is that screenwriter Paul Haggis has made clear that Bond 22 will begin, literally, minutes after the ending of “Casino Royale”, and will follow James Bond (a returning Daniel Craig) as he investigates the masterminds behind the Le Chiffre operation that was the central plotline of “Royale”. Apparently no poker this time. Bond 22 will also break free from Ian Fleming’s novel, but will continue to be “inspired” by Fleming’s works.

As for 007 (Daniel Craig) himself, Haggis said, “It will be the same Bond you saw in Casino, a very human and flawed assassin, a man who has to navigate a morally complex and often cynical world while attempting to hold onto his deep beliefs of what is right and wrong.”

Two beloved regular characters in the series who were missing from Casino Royale — Q and Miss Moneypenny — will still be MIA for the untitled sequel. “Certainly, there may come a point where those beloved characters return, but, at the moment, they’re not in 22,” Broccoli confirmed.

I can’t say as if I’ve been all that excited about the Bond movies until Bond 21 changed all that. I’m really looking forward to this one…

    I would love to see Miss Moneypenny or Q in the movie, but i understand why they are not…

    As told at such sites like mi6.co.uk or imb.com the movie is suppossed to take place 2 minutes after “CASINO ROYALE”(hense a sequal). Bond as you saw in the movie, was still his own style as a rogue agent rather a double-o. He didn’t dress formal all the time, he hadnt thought up the name for his famous martini, he fell in love. He was still himself although he was promoted. So my point of all this is, They want us to see Bond become Bond more first before adding the other famous characters such as Miss Moneypenny or Q. Now bond is starting to become what we know of him in the past, but he’s not fully the same bond we know. lol, bond didnt do his famous line untill the very end of Casino Royale, or even got to say “Vodka Martini, Shaken not Stirred”. I have some theories myself, on what will happen later in the series. I believe sooner or later bond will have his usuall haircut along with being yet promoted again to Cammander. I would like to see that later along too. He’s got a cool haircut now, but it’s not the traditional Bond we all know.
