Haven’t been posting as I should or wanted to. Been busy and tired from congestion kicking my ass. But I’m going to think some for now.
I heard of some folk wanting to cast Idris Elba as the next James Bond. Everyone is going to have their own opinion on this. I personally think Elba would be better cast as someone who Trained Bond that has now got to be hunted down and stopped. Not because he’s turned against the country, but because he feels the Country isn’t willing to do what needs to be done.
I see him as leading a group of like minded former Agents, MI-6, Mi-5, CIA, NSA, Mossad things like that. He leads them towards causing an event that will bring down all those who would target the UK, USA, and other allies. Bond has to try and defeat this man who trained him, taught him, mentored him. Bond’s female co-star would be a decorated FBI agent.
After the obligatory action packed ending however it wouldn’t end with this group stopped, or some moral saying there is a line you can’t cross in defense of Queen and Country. It would be far more ambiguous then that. Bond and M looking at intel world wide showing the results of this groups actions, and the thought that these guys may have succeeded in what they were attempting. And knowing that they are still out there, acting to defend Queen and Country, the Flag, whatever, By Any Means Necessary.
I think this would be a compelling film to be honest.
