The inspiration for me to name the James Bond film “Skyfall” came from actor who is best known for his role as Ian Fleming’s James Bond.
Sean Connery starred in the 1999 film Entrapment along with Catherine Zeta-Jones which they planned to steal $8 billion from the fictional International Clearance Bank in the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. The towers being named while we worked on ideas for Harry Potter and the “patronus” charm spell.
While planning the heist Sean as Robert “Mac” MacDougal is writing ideas in a journal. It was the underlined “SKYBRIDGE” and Plan “B” of escaping through ventilation shaft that inspired me to name the 2012 James Bond film starring Daniel Craig “Skyfall”.
