1. DNA Helix To Be Used In Bond 20

    By daniel on 2002-01-05

    Every now and then you come across some unofficial Bond 20 news that really makes you think. Today I've come across such news. How does one attempt to verify the validity of a piece of news when it is apparently so simple.

    News has come from the Warrington Guardian and the Manchester Evening News that the Daresbury Science Laboratory has supplied producers of Bond 20 with two models. The first model is a DNA model magnified a reported 50,000 times, and the second model is a haemoglobin.

    While it seems quite simple, it's the possible implications of the models that may raise eyebrows. While what follows is purely speculation on my part it does relate to past rumours we've heard, and therefore, a spoiler warning does apply.

    Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read)

    While the two models could simply be a set piece, possible a part of a Q-Branch scene, it is possible that they relate to the rumour that we’ve continually heard about the face mutation of the character ‘Zao’, whom we believe Rick Yune will play. If so, the models will possibly be used in the same way as the holographic model of Renard in The World Is Not Enough; that is to explain more about the character.

    That aside the article has revealed no further details about Bond 20. A big thank you to 'ppk' and Stuart Donaldson for sending the news tips into me!
