James Bond film ‘Skyfall’ inspired by Stuxnet virus: Being a huge James Bond fan, I’m trying to avoid SkyFall spoilers, but this is just awesome.
“It’s a brave new world,” gadget-maker Q tells James Bond in the new film “Skyfall.” The new film, released on the 50th anniversary of the storied franchise, presents a gadget-free Bond fighting with both brains and brawn against a high-tech villain with computer prowess Bill Gates would be envious of. What inspired such a villain?
“Stuxnet,” producer Michael G. Wilson told FoxNews.com. […] “There is a cyberwar that has been going on for some time, and we thought we’d bring that into the fore and let people see how it could be going on,” Wilson said.
