Following the success of Power/Rangers just a week ago, Adi Shankar has released another bootleg film, this time set in the world of 007 himself James Bond…
Adi Shankar has found away to make fan films that often times surpass the original work he’s honoring and his latest is no exception.
Following the release of “Power/Rangers” a week ago with more than 12 million viewers on different platforms, Shankar has released his latest fan film “James Bond in “In Service of Nothing” by director Tyler Gibb.
“I always wondered what would happen to James Bond in his old age and in our borderless world. I’m not referring to the Bond we’ve seen in recent films, that incarnation is closer to Jason Bourne meets Batman,” Shankar told NerdcoreMovement.com about the new film. “I’m referring to the swanky, alcoholic, serial killer, with mommy issues that we saw in films like Dr. No and Goldfinger. How would he find a sense of purpose in a self absorbed and impersonal modern world once his license to kill has been revoked?”
This newest fan film is just another example of Shankar honoring the source material while giving it an updated look and feel for a new generation of fans.
Unfortunately, MGM filed a complaint and asked to have the James Bond fan film pulled down from YouTube and producer Adi Shankar has respectfully chosen not to re-post the video while giving a statement on the situation:
“I have the utmost respect for MGM and the iconic character of James Bond, and although I believe my video is clearly a parody of James Bond, I will refrain from reposting it online out of respect.”
