Casino Royale Reboot
Idea is a Bore

TV Guide



The upcoming Casino Royale will present a completely new version of Agent 007,
and not just because it's Daniel Craig's debut. Tracing the spy's not-so-super
beginnings, the franchise's 21st entry will open with a black-and-white prologue,
depict James Bond's first two hits — one of which goes awry and is thus "very
messy" — and show him earning his license to kill, ultimately leading to "the
emotionally shut-down beautiful machine that Bond has become," director Martin
Campbell told reporters this week. What's more, Royale will feature neither Q nor
Moneypenny, and will employ only "a little bit of gadgetry."

Sounds like Q has been replaced by Zzzzzz.
