The step-son of franchise overseer Albert Broccoli, Wilson has been
producing Bond films since Moonraker.
years ago he and the other Bond producers made the strong, gutsy
decision to reboot Bond and give the character and series a major
overhaul. Casino Royale proved that decision to be the right one, and
now the Bond franchise finds itself continuing in that new direction
with Quantum of Solace.
People always ask
Daniel Craig what Bond’s next adventure will be, but he’s just the
actor – all of that is out of his control. Wilson, on the other hand,
is the guy who gives Bond his assignments, so I jumped at the chance to
interview him a couple of weeks ago at the QoS junket in Los Angeles.
