Without it being pastiche...
Daniel Craig has hinted that the next James Bond film could be going back to a story similar to some of the older films in the franchise. Vulture spoke with Craig about the upcoming Bond 24, with the actor saying he was opening to go back to some of the earlier elements--but not the camp factor.
"Hopefully we'll reclaim some of the old irony," he says, "and make sure it doesn't become pastiche. I can't do shtick, I'm not very good at it. Unless it kind of suddenly makes sense. Does that make sense? I sometimes wish I hammed it up more, but I just can't do it very well, so I don't do it."
The film will be directed again by Sam Mendes and written by John Logan, and will release on November 6th, 2015.
