Should they remake Man with the Golden Gun but use a different title?


If you read the book, its great.

Bond is brainwashed, tries to assassinate M. Is restored to full mental health. Then sent to hunt Scaramanga. The first movie never turned it into a real manhunt, they were trying to hard to be funny. I bet a good scriptwriter could turn it into a really good bond flick.

Yes.

Don't change title.

They should remake every Moore bond film (except Moonraker).

my point is, there were several movies where they REALLY got away from the books they were based upon. That was one. I liked the way it started, he tried to kill M and then they reformed him and sent him on a manhunt. They could have alot of fun with that in a script.

I think this could have been used in Skyfall. Doesn't make as much sense now with a new M.

Would love to see them remake Moonraker actually based on the book. My favorite one after From Russia With Love.

The Man With The Golden Gun is probably my least favorite Bond movie.

They should remake all the Ian Flemming titles.

In the age of Hollywood writers being lazy and going into full reboot mode, I honestly don't know why this hasn't been done.

The reason a lot of people liked the recent version of Casino Royale is that it followed a lot of the original story.

You are obviously ignoring the fact that it features Sheriff J.W. Pepper.
