Bond will be shot in India

30 Jul
 

There is no secret James Bond can’t keep; but actor Daniel Craig spills the beans on the elusive spy’s plans. India, says Craig, is on Bond’s hit list in the 23rd installment of the franchise, tentatively called Bond 23. “There is definitely a plan to do that (shoot Bond 23 in India).

 

It’s premature to talk about it as of now. I don’t want to make any public announcement, but there is definitely a plan,” says 43-year-old Craig, in his stiff upper lip British accent, as we caught up with him in Mexico during the promotion of his upcoming flick, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. But, there’s one secret Craig is trying hard to keep and that’s his personal life. The actor tied the knot with Hollywood star Rachel Weisz, 41, in New York, and the couple has avoided the limelight since. Mention the paparazzi and his expression becomes stern. “Life is great; it feels good to have a partner like Rachel. But it’s just that as long as I can keep my private life private, I’m all good with it,” he says. 

Craig is currently riding high on the success of his latest film Cowboys & Aliens and says he expects it to do well in India. “My expectations from the Indian audiences are high. I think the audiences there are fond of the action genre,” he says.

He hasn’t seen any Bollywood films, but says as a huge fan of action films, he can’t wait to get in on the thrill. “I have heard a lot about Ghajini (2008) and Dabangg (2010) and would love to watch them whenever I get a chance,” says Craig.

He’s not sure when that will be, but he does let on that filming for Bond 23 will start at the end of the year. “The next Bond will start in October or November. I’m really excited about the script, it’s fantastic,” he says. Craig became a household name after his debut as Bond in Casino Royale (2006), a fact he accepts with modesty. “I was glad to know that Bond fans accepted me after Pierce Brosnan, who was incredible as James Bond,” he says.

Ice Palace "Die Another Day"

Arla Plast AB has supplied a large quantity of special sized GRIPHEN™, PETG sheets to the Thompson Plastics Group in the UK to make the “ice” panels as a backdrop for the latest James Bond movie “Die Another Day”.
The material was chosen for its outstanding properties, notably its formability and its spread of flame characteristics, which makes it flame resistant.

The 400 thermoplastic panels that were ordered each measured 4 metres by 2 metres.
“It has really been exciting to follow this project of making “ice” out of our PETG material and as you would expect from one of Europe’s leading thermoformers Thompson Plastics has made an excellent job out of our sheets. ”, says Kim Warren Sales Manager at Arla Plast in the UK.

Hur kom Flemings ide` 007 prefixet till?

28 Jul

Ian Fleming valde att ge  agent James Bond kodnumret 007.  
Vad betyder det? – vi ser namnet och numret som ett och samma begrepp: James Bond 007.

Men varifrån tog Ian Fleming numret egentligen? Ja, det är det faktiskt ingen som kan säga med  säkerhet. Fleming fick förstås denna fråga i intervjuer och han brukade svara att han hade fått idén till numret 007 från sina år i säkerhetstjänsten under kriget. Så här svarade Fleming i en intervju 1963:

”Jag knyckte den idén. När jag var i säkerhetstjänsten i början av kriget inleddes alla topphemliga signaler med 00-prefixet. Detta ändrades förstås senare av säkerhetsskäl. Jag mindes det här prefixet och jag beslöt att låna det till Bond för att få hans jobb att verka mer intressant, och ge honom en licens att döda. I verkligheten kan förstås vilken spion som helst behöva döda i tjänsten och gör det antagligen också, oavsett licens eller ej.”

Sedan finns det andra teorier också. En teori som då och då förs fram är att Fleming hade snappat upp numret 007 från en titel på en novell av den berömde brittiske författaren och Nobelpristagaren Rudyard Kipling (mest känd för ”Djungelboken”). Kipling skrev en novell som faktiskt hette ”.007”, som handlar om en ångmaskin och ingår i hans novellsamling The Days Work, som utgavs 1898. Ångmaskinen har i novellen numret 007, så novellen har inget alls med agenter eller så att göra.

Man vet att Fleming tyckte om Kiplings verk, så det är inte alls omöjligt, om än litet långsökt, att numret 007 kan ha inspirerats av en av dennes noveller.
Denna teori har även diskuterats i Kipling Society:s medlemstidskrift.

En tredje tes,  är kanske , visas upp i tv-filmen Goldeneye, som handlar om Flemings liv. Charles Dance, känd som Claus i For Your Eyes Only  spelar Fleming. I den här filmen får vi i en sekvens se Fleming gå längs en hotellkorridor. Han passerar rum nr 1007. Det är bara det att en av skruvarna som håller 1:an på plats har lossnat, så att den hänger på trekvart. På dörren står: 007… och vi kan se Fleming stanna till och sedan gå vidare.

Det finns även en fjärde teori, nämligen att Fleming skulle ha inspirerats av numret 007 på en busslinje på Jamaica. Den busslinjen skulle ha passerat Goldeneye, och Fleming skulle då ha lagt märke till att siffrorna 007 såg tuffa ut, ingen vet säkert hur det egentligen gick till...
