Yesterday, Variety reported that “the Marc Forster-helmed film, loosely based on the Ian Fleming short story “Risico,” finds 007 (Daniel Craig) dispatched to infiltrate a drug ring flooding Britain with heroin.”
You may remember that in August, screenwriter Paul Haggis, denied that Bond 22 will be based on an Ian Fleming short story. However, he added that the script is “steeped in a lot of Fleming’s ideas.”
Is this drug ring plot one of the Fleming ideas Haggis alluded to or is Variety exhibiting poor reporting by rehashing an old rumour? Only time will tell.
