Star Daniel Craig told U.K.'s Daily Express that producers are keen to put more humor in the flick.
After being shown a tough, rough, and more vulnerable James Bond in "Casino Royale", moviegoers may get quite a contrasting side of the famed British super-spy in the next installment.
Star Daniel Craig, who earned praise for his portrayal of the agent in the reboot of the franchise, recently pointed out in an interview with U.K.'s Daily Express that there will likely be more humor in "Bond 22", stating the project's producers are wanting more gags included in it.
"The next one's going to be a lot funnier," so the 39-year-old actor told the tabloid newspaper. "Octopussy and Pussy Galore style gags. They're all great names - but that's the thing, the Bond jokes will be flipped on their heads."
The second to star Craig as 007, "Bond 22" has already had "Finding Neverland" helmer Marc Forster assigned to direct from script penned by Robert Wade, Neal Purvis, and Paul Haggis with Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli both returning to the producer's chair. Pic is slated for a release on November 7, 2008, the same year the next Bond book "Devil May Care", written by British author Sebastian Faulks, gets launched.
