Thread: Now I don't really care about James Bond films as they're really stupid, but

  1. #1

    Now I don't really care about James Bond films as they're really stupid, but

    Idris Elba being made the new James Bond would strike me as a fairly major 'fck you' to the sort of people who are.

    Apart from anything else, surely Hollywood must have noticed by now that this sort of 'woke' stunt casting is not exactly box office dynamite?

    That's all very well and all that (and given they haven't even started filming the "last" Daniel Craig one and Eon, with whom I have done some work in the past, are notoriously slow to make any decisions, I doubt this is anything more than groundless gossip), but what's the weather like over there?

    Oh, I know. I'm just musing on the rumour, really. It just seems to me that messing about with a 65 year-old canon to pander to some silly idea of diversity is a fairly risky move.

    It's fine and clear, la. 4 day test match ahoy!

    Of course, thing is they also aren't stupid - they'll only pander to some silly idea of diversity if they think it will make them more money, which as you say is unlikely. Just paying lip service to the idea keeps them in the news between films (see also Colin Salmon rumours pre/post-Brosnan.

    Excellent news on the weather - now to to win the toss
    Excellent

    That is my assumption, too. Apart from anything else, Elba's likely to be about 50 by the time a new Bond film appears. Assuming he were to sign on for 5 to 10 years, he'd be getting on for Roger Moore in View To A Kill levels of oldness.

    However, Hollywood has done some pretty stupid stuff. All-female Ghostbusters 2, anyone?

    How dare you, h? I am much more woke than you.

    Personally, I think they should spraypaint Michelangelo's David brown (and give him a bigger cock); paint a burqa on Botticelli's Venus and produce a dub version of Beethoven's Eroica to replace the original.

    That's how much all these manifestations of white 'culture' disgust me.

    Vodka Martini replaces with a Dark N Stormy....quite partial to that drink too.

    Kind of grateful they aren’t even thinking of the next double O being a woman.

    Seems to be the hot trend right now...Female Ghostbusters, Female Oceans, Female Terminator and now I’m hearing they’ve even got a female Predator

    Yep she’s got some titties on her....or it...not sure how gender works with aliens imo
