James Bond & Friends – Episode 0035: Live And Let Die Redux

The latest episode of James Bond & Friends is now available on Apple Podcasts and elsewhere.

Could Fleming’s second novel be adapted faithfully in the 21st century?

This episode we consider how Daniel Craig’s reboot of the series could have continued with a faithful adaptation of Ian Fleming’s second novel Live And Let Die to follow up the modern update of Casino Royale. Often easily waved away as an outdated story with race issues and bygone attitudes, we take a close look at how the essence of the book could have been kept for a 2008 adventure. What other problems would arise from making another film based on the book? What shadow would Roger Moore’s 1973 outing cast?

The recording took place on November 22nd in the USA.
