The invisible car debate gets revisited, Lee Tamahori is rightly blamed

Bond News - 22-02-13
In the run up to the release of "Skyfall", writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade joked about the invisible Aston Martin in "Die Another Day" and that all the Bond films have invisible cars, you just haven't noticed them. More seriously, the duo recounted how they had included the real-world technology as basic camouflage, but director Lee Tamahori had cranked the effect to 11 making it unbelievable.

“Die Another Day, on the page, was fairly gritty,” Wade told Yahoo Movies this week.

“The first hour is good,” agreed Purvis. “Then it goes a bit cartoon-y. But at the start, Brosnan is captured by the North Koreans, tortured, then traded for an enemy agent. M is very tough [with Bond] and he has to escape. They question whether Bond has cracked and so on. It is reasonably similar material to the later ones but it’s the way it’s done [by the director].”

“I think you can’t regret anything, because what you do affects your next step,” said Barbara Broccoli.

“By the way, those are now part of the military”, added Michael G. Wilson.

“It’s true,” replied Broccoli. “That’s where we got the idea from when we were making the film. It was the cutting edge of technology.”
