According to the Sunday Mirror, Quentin Tarantino has said he is quite upset about the upcoming Bond movie, Casino Royale, because he conceived many of the ideas being used. From the article:
I'm annoyed that the James Bond producers never even called me up to talk to me about it because I can tell you they would not be making Casino Royale if I hadn't talked about it first.
They should have called me. Especially since they are taking my idea and they are taking the publicity I gave them towards that idea. They should have at least out of courtesy had coffee with me.
Among the ideas stolen from Q.T.: James Bond having cool inventions, James Bond shooting people, James Bond having sex with various women, James Bond driving cool cars, James bond fighting a rich, sophisticated villain with an extensive organization of thugs, and saying, "Bond. James Bond."
Among the ideas not stolen: Extensive anime sequences and Samuel L. Jackson.
