And in Hollywood News...Bond Goes Slapstick
HOLLYWOOD - After the middling success of the James Bond franchise of movies, Michael G. Wilson, producer of the latest films, announced today that he will write and produce a "reboot" for Sony Picture Entertainment.
Mr. Wilson vows that he will keep giving audiences everything they expect in a Bond movie, "but with a difference".
"The new films will portray James Bond as a crazy, kooky secret agent who always gets his man and a pie in the face," explained the producer.
The new direction will also feature the return of a more gadget-oriented Bond. New gadgets include an iPhone that squirts water, a gun that never fires, and of course, the trademark Aston Martin, equipped with a passenger side whoopee cushion.
"We are taking Bond in an exciting new direction," claims Mr. Wilson, "and I think fans will respond. I mean, who wouldn't want to see the world's greatest secret agent take a pratfall?"
Actor Daniel Craig was unavailable for comment.
