you do wonder why the intercon festival city of all places has been picked to be featured in the book though when there really are some other quite fabulous hotels here...guess they paid shed loads for the privilege...

Jeffrey Deaver stays there when he visits as they are one of the sponsors of Emirates Festival of Literature, I imagine he got an upgrade

.... but what's the movie situation? Daniel Craig still hasn't signed for any more (or that was my last information a while back), and Sebastian Faulks is wavering over Devil May Care.............

Bond 23 is 100% confirmed. Sam Mendes to direct Daniel Craig. It will be shot in 3D (which I am a general fan of, but not sure about Bond in 3D)....

Sam Mendes with the new dark bond - I think this could be a cracker...

Thanks Auto, but which story is the movie going to be?

Casino Royale was the best for decades. It had that hard edge (a bit like the Bourne films). Genuine thriller, not merely a poser's paradise.

I seriously doubt it. They've not announced the title of the movie yet, but they have announced the book title.

There are 3 script writers, 2 of them have done the recent Bonds, the other did Gladiator etc.

But that would mean Devil May Care isn't going to be a movie?
