James Bond to ‘Die Another Day’
He’s come “From Russia with Love,” decided “The World is Not Enough,” but in his 20th film James Bond, the world’s greatest spy, is promising to “Die Another Day.”
On Tuesday the movie’s producers ended months of speculation among 007 devotees about the new film’s name.
“‘Die Another Day’ carries on the tradition of the Ian Fleming stories and reflects the excitement and mystery of our latest script,” producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of EON Productions said in a statement.
The film, which began shooting in January, has had fans of the British secret agent series on tenterhooks.
One dedicated Web site eagerly reported last year that it had details of the new movie which it claimed would be called “Final Assignment” — only to discover the “leaked” script had been penned by an over-imaginative fan.
“Die Another Day,” which sees Pierce Brosnan as Bond for the fourth time and also stars actress Halle Berry, will be released in Britain and the United States on November 22, 2002
