With much thanks to Bond scholar Ajay Chowdhury we can bring to you an interview that appeared in the British version of Variety, Screen International in February 2001.
The interview is with Neil Purvis and Robert Wade, the two screenwriters who wrote the first draft of The World Is Not Enough and have already completed the first draft of Bond 20.
While the interview reveals little about Bond’s next adventure it does debunk a few older rumours including the infamous ‘Beyond The Ice’. It also mentions that the two have visited the IMDb listing for Bond 20, which includes a link to this site. I wonder if they’ve ever tottered over for a visit? If you’re reading guys, please let us know!
Aside from that, the interview reveals the process behind their script development and also how they’re working to extend the character of Bond, much like actor Pierce Brosnan has always said he wants to.

Don’t forget to visit the Bond 20 Forums. Yes I’m plugging them again, but if you haven’t visited them to date, you don’t know what you’re missing out on!
