James Bond to get Million Dollar polish

"Casino Royale", the Bond movie currently under preparation, will receive a final script polish from "Million Dollar Baby" and "Crash" writer Paul Haggis. The film has been written by the British team of Robert Wade and Neal Purvis, already behind the highly-rated "Let Him Have It" plus Bond's "The World is Not Enough" and "Die Another Day". They also scripted the Brian Jones bio-pic "Stoned" that will premiere in Toronto soon.

Speaking to Screen International, Wade said: "Everything is written, including the structure – it just needs a polish. If you can bring in a hot talented writer to polish it then great, it is normal on this size of movie. I am sure Paul Haggis will do a great job."
