007 Wire, August 07, Part 3

Filed under: 007 Wire on Sep 1, 2007 at 12:32 pm

Hey, lets pretend it’s August for one more day. Yay August! So what has happened since “Part 2″….

  • Casino Royale is being rumored for a 3-disc DVD edition at some point. I would say another edition is almost a given. Expect it in 2008 just prior to Bond 22 (my guess). Also coming soon is the 42-disc James Bond Monster Box set with all the films. No doubt it’s probably just a re-release of the Ultimate Editions with Casino Royale (Amazon)
  • Sean Connery turned 77!
  • Supposedly Daniel Craig got engaged.
  • Michael Lamont passed away. He is the brother of Bond veteran Peter Lamont, but he’s done his fair share for the world of Bond including work on For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View to a Kill, The Living Daylights, Licence to Kill, GoldenEye, The World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day, and Casino Royale. Outside of Bond he worked on The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Aliens, The Fifth Element, Event Horizon, and the first Harry Potter movie. My condolences to the family.
  • From Italy, it would appear that the Bond 22 film squad moved into Madrid.
  • And probably the biggest news for the week was Paul Haggis getting around and doing some interviews. Here’s one, here’s another, one here, this one too. Oh.. and the video from IGN.
