Silverknight is a spy/action film, designed as a final film to give star Pierce Brosnan the send-off he deserved, after dire critical responses to Die Another Day. It exists in the original timeline, before the series was rebooted with Casino Royale, and MZP-TV's own The Edge of Life.
James Bond 007 seeks to protect the creator of SilverKnight, a devastating biological weapon being protected by billionaire industralist Reverend Xavier Kiss, courted by enemy governments, Neo-Nazi terrorists, and a mysterious young woman who is far more than she appears...
- Pierce Brosnan as James Bond 007, an agent of MI6.
- Donald Sutherland as Reverend Xavier Kiss, the primary antagonist.
- Michelle Yeoh as Colonel Wai Ling, a skilled Chinese spy and Bond's ally. She is reprising her role from the earlier James Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies.
- Megalyn Echikunwoke as Delilah Kiss, daughter of Xavier Kiss, and Wai Ling's murderer.
- Dominic Purcell as Roland, a silent assassin.
- Ken Leung as Tseng, an operative of the Chinese government.
- Shohreh Agdashaloo as Nadija Abdul Karem, Bond's ally in the pre-credits sequence.
- William Fichtner as Donn Erickson, a Miami entrepeneur.
- Colin Salmon as Charles Robinson, the MI6 Chief of Staff.
- Michael Kitchen as Bill Tanner, another agent of MI6.
- Samantha Bond as Miss Moneypenny, M's secretary.
- John Cleese as Q. MI6's "quartermaster" who supplies Bond with multi-purpose vehicles and gadgets which prove useful in the latter's mission
- Judi Dench as M, the strict head of MI6.
The film began life as The Universe Is Ours, and instead of Wai Lin, it brought back the character of Anya Amasova, played by Barbara Bach in The Spy Who Loved Me. It would also have guest starred Valentin Zhukovsky, played by Robbie Coltrane in GoldenEye and The World Is Not Enough. When the film was changed, the sequences were changed from Russia to China, though the plot remained roughly the same.
Xavier Kiss was named after an architect in Vancouver, Zoltan Kiss. The plot actually escalated from an episode of The 4400]], which discussed Sickle Cell Anaemia, and the fact that it mainly affected those of African decent because of some sort of history with Malaria. The character of Tseng originated as a man named Nemerov.
The general reaction to SilverKnight was positive. The action, characterisation, casting and plotting were almost universally praised, though the general consensus was that readers disagreed with Bond developing a relationship with the women who murdered Wai Ling, his former lover.
