Hardly the sort of guy you'd expect to settle into a life of ease - a 9-to-5, a Subaru four-door and the pernicious weight of an existence unchallenged - it looks like the plot for James Bond's latest outing might be a lot more normal than any of his previous films.
First reported by Page Six, according to a source close to Daniel Craig's much-vaunted next Bond, the plot will, supposedly, see 007 leave MI6 for a chance at married life.
"Bond quits the secret service, and he's in love and gets married." the source says, before adding that "His wife then gets killed," bringing Bond back into action.
Now that's more like it.
In Craig's last 007 portrayal, 2015's Spectre, Bond's love interest was Léa Seydoux's Dr. Madeleine Swann — who thankfully managed to avoid a grisly death at the hands of a laser or a big vat of oil, and she will supposedly begin the next film as Bond's wife.
Now, it's important to acknowledge that Bond has had a wife before, in 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service, but it was only for like five minutes and it was a Lazenby film, so it doesn't really count.
"The film's like Taken with Bond," says the source, who adds that Bond is out to avenge his wife's murder.
That's either great news... or cause for grave, cliche-ridden concern.
Just don't be terrible, please.
