Casino Royale is the Movie That Inspired Casino Royale
The inspiration behind Casino Royale is a well-known one. Many people remember the film and are still very much in love with it. This is largely down to the fact that Casino Royale was a major success, and its many sequels have managed to live up to its high standards.
In the book, James Bond is a British secret agent who works for MI6. He is assigned to capture an international terrorist organisation known as the Omega Five, who were responsible for the death of Princess Diana.
Bond’s assignment lands him in Iran, where he has to infiltrate the terrorist organisation before they can do anything to threaten British intelligence. However, the group is extremely well-equipped, with a large number of weapons and explosives which they have procured from around the world.
The Omega Five has two members; James Bond’s friend George Lazenby plays George Lazenby, who is a British Intelligence officer, while Roger Moore plays Roger Moore, an ex-MI6 agent. Both men were then chosen to play James Bond. Lazenby had been working on a film in Iran when he got the role; while Moore had been offered the role, it was never going to happen because of financial concerns.
Casino Royale tells the story of how Bond becomes the secret agent he is today – after being trained by the legendary George Lazenby, as well as meeting up with various other members of the Omega Five. However, before Bond even sets out to be a secret agent, he first works as an ordinary office clerk.
Casino Royale is now considered one of the best Bond films ever made, and continues to get rave reviews. It is definitely worth watching, if you haven’t already seen it.
Casino Royale was written by Ian Fleming, who also wrote such novels as James Bond: The Spy Who Loved Me and Diamonds Are Forever. Casino Royale was the second of his Bond novels following the publication of Casino Royale.
The film adaptation was directed by none other than Sean Connery, who won two Oscars for his portrayal of Bond. Connery also played the part of the villain in the previous Bond film, You Only Live Twice, and he was also a prolific screenwriter.
Casino Royale also stars Pierce Brosnan, who is perhaps best known for his portrayal of James Bond in the James Bond films, such as Die Another Day, A View To A Kill and Casino Royale. There is a long line of female actors to have portrayed Bond, but Brosnan’s most notable contribution to the franchise was his role as James Bond’s nemesis, Blofeld.
