I cannot wait to see the latest Bond movie, Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes, starring the perfectly cast Daniel Craig as James Bond and Javier Bardem as, reputedly, the best Bond villain we've seen, Silva.
Skyfall is already - in its first weekend of release in the United States - the most successful Bond movie ever, with a worldwide gross, as of writing, of $669.2 million. Not bad for a franchise that is 50 years old!
I'm particularly pleased for producer Barbara Broccoli, who was the first person to option the film rights in my novel, The War Zone, some considerable time ago (although she wasn't involved in making the film when it was finally produced).
Barbara was a wonderful person to work with, and a lot of fun - we even went down the helter skelter on Brighton Pier together, as part of a dare:)
Here's to blowing things up (on screen) for fun!
