Why am I not surprised...

In an interview with the Daily Express newspaper in the UK, new Bond Daniel Craig spilled a bit of gossip regarding the machinations behind 007's next outing. “They [the producers] just want more gags," Craig is reported to have said. "The next one’s going to be a lot funnier. Octopussy and Pussy Galore style gags. They’re all great names — but that’s the thing, the Bond jokes will be flipped on their heads." Having beefed up the series with Casino Royale — of which I was not a fan despite its overwhelming critical and commercial success — it seems producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson want to make it more Moore-like than macho. No wonder original director Roger Michell bailed over creative differences. Can't wait to see what Marc Forster makes of the "lot funnier" vibe.
