    By daniel on 2002-03-19

    An Austrian news source has reported various details on Die Another Day. And while we're yet to get a full translation of the article this report highlights one key detail in the news. The detail does involve plot spoilers and speculation.

    Pierce Brosnan During Filming Of Die Another Day

    Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read)

    By all accounts there is undeniable proof that the pre-title sequence will end with James Bond captured by North Korean Colonel Moon. What follows for 007 is three months of torture at the hands of Colonel Moon and his henchmen.

    We’ve also learnt that 007 is released to American’s, rather than escaping from captivity. Speculation of my part has been echoed by reports from the Austrian news source who have indicated that Bond is ineed released from captivity, by General Moon. General Moon is of course Colonel Moon’s father and is described as a pacifist (the opposite to his son) who wishes to reunify Korea on peaceful terms.

    The article continues to reveal information we’ve also learnt to date. Including the fact that Colonel Moon, with his warmongering territorial ambitions, wishes to reunify Korea through war and then take over Japan. Once done, he’ll lead a final assault on the United States.

    Other details revealed include the news that Pierce Brosnan is being paid US$25 million for playing the role of James Bond in Die Another Day. I believe he was paid the same sum for The World Is Not Enough.
