Casino Royale

© Sony Pictures Releasing

Storyline
The film will be based on Ian Fleming's first Bond novel, which was set during the Cold War and focused on a gambler named Le Chiffre who tries to reclaim a fortune he lost for Smersh, the Communist secret enforcement unit. The 2006 version eliminates the Cold War setting. Le Chiffre, a French gangster, uses the profits from his casino to fund terrorists. But he has made the mistake of misappropriating their funds. He has to mount a card game in order to win the money back. Bond is sent in to make sure he doesn't win. "Casino Royale" is the 21st James Bond film.
