    By daniel on 2001-12-19

    We've managed to find more information on the characters that both Halle Berry and Rick Yune will play in Bond 20, assuming the latter does actually sign to star in the film.

    To being with, Halle Berry has revealed information about her character in an interview with Sci Fi Wire. Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read) “Berry said of her character, “I’m nobody’s girlfriend. That’s all I know.”, which appears to be a direct reference to her statement that her character will be the bad Bond girl in Bond 20. Berry has also said she'd like to have a character with an ineteresting feature. Xenia Onatopp had her killer thights and Rosa Klebb had her spiked shoes, so what could Jinx have? Berry suggest a killer tongue. "I think I'd have a tongue that could choke [people]." Maybe not.

    You can discuss Berry's statements in this thread of the Bond 20 Forums. Thanks to 'Level007' for the tip-off about the news!

    Moving on to Rick Yune's role in Bond 20. 'DreamLord' has told us that Kyunghyang Sinmun, a major Korean daily newspaper, ran an article about Rick Yune last week. Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read) The article reported that Yune will place a “North Korean terrorist [in Bond 20] who is against the peaceful reunification of the two Koreas.” However, the aritlce has stated that Yune is yet to sign up and "will refuse the role if he doesn't like his character or the screenplay, which is currently being rewritten."

    It's interesting to see talk of the script being re-drafted. Most Bond films have gone through several drafts before filming. All that is left to be discovered is who is writing the new draft. You can discuss this news in this thread of the Bond 20 Forums. See you there!
