Tarantino to direct Bond 21?

Quentin Tarantino has expressed real interest in adapting the first James Bond novel, Casino Royale, into the 21st Bond film - with Pierce Brosnan as 007. The film was originally made in the '60s as a spoof, but QT is intent on making it a serious espionage thriller, as Fleming wrote the character in the original novels.

However, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are unlikely to want to revisit the original Bond mould, seemingly intent on making another poor and clichéd Bond outing.

Greg's Upcoming Movies has a preview page for Bond 21, with comments on QT's interest, here. There is a thread over at The DVD Forums discussing the news.
