Writer Paul Haggis reveals a Bond 22 plot was thrown out late in script development

13-Oct-2007 • Quantum Of Solace

In an interesting revelation, writer Paul Haggis has admitted that a plot or the 22nd James Bond film was thrown out late on in script development.

Speaking to Esquire magazine in early September, Haggis said "I thought I had come up with a terrific plot, and we'd worked it all the way through, and yesterday we tossed it out."

As with Casino Royale, Haggis is rewriting a first draft script by regular Bond scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

Comparing this latest 007 outing to his first, Haggis said "this one's tougher than Casino Royale, which wasn't a small amount of work, but there was an existing book."

Late last month, Haggis said he was going to Italy to concentrate on completing the script.
