Quentin Tarantino: ‘Daniel Craig shouldn’t be James Bond’

Daniel Craig wouldn’t be playing James Bond — if director Quentin Tarantino had his way.

The eccentric movie maker said he would like to have directed Casino Royale — but with Pierce Brosnan as the suave British spy.

“The reason they did Casino Royale all comes down to me,” Quentin said.

“I made it a point, I said I wanted to do Casino Royale. They were already on record as saying the movie was unfilmable but then after I said it and talked about it for a little bit — then the big thing on all the internets was that that was what all the fans wanted to see and so that’s when they said, ‘Oh, maybe it’s not so un-filmable.’

“Actually if I had done the film, I wouldn’t have done it with Daniel Craig, I would have done it with Pierce Brosnan.”

  1. While a big fan of Tarantino’s work, and as much as I was shocked when the under-rated and under-appreciated Brosnan was let go, this sounds a bit sour-grapey to me.

    I do like that Tarantino used the word “internets” though…
