Latest dirt on 007 doings
Posted on Sun, 11-Sep-2005
Bond insider 'Mr X' has been spot-on before, so we're giving him the podium again to wax lyrical on what's new in "Casino Royale" land.
"I can confirm that the casting net is indeed wide, and that the producers have indeed reached a dead end. It seems Julian McMahon's new reps blew the deal for him by demanding an outrageous amount of money; this foul-up was made even more embarrassing when it transpired that the contract on offer was not, in fact, an offer; it was the standard Bond deal memo that everyone meeting with the producers is required to sign. Regardless, McMahon is now officially out of the running", our scooper says.
"As for what else is transpiring, I can confirm that the producers are deathly scared of the "Bourne" films and their impact, and are hoping to emulate their style. That means: Young Bond. Look for an actor in his late-20s/early-30s, possibly Australian... and no, it ain't Alex O'Lachlan...".
Again, Brosnan busts a gut from laughing so much.
