Variety reports that Marc Forster, director of MONSTER’S BALL and FINDING NEVERLAND, has been hired to helm the next James Bond film, which will star Daniel Craig. This is an unusually edgy choice for the legendarily conservative Bond producers and shows how dedicated they are to continue redefining 007 for a new generation (these are the same producers who stuck with director John Glenn for several Bond films and turned away overtures from the likes of Quentin Tarantino and Steven Spielberg). CASINO ROYALE scriptors Paul Haggis, Neil Purvis & Robert Wade are once again teaming up on the script. Purvis & Wade are Bond veterans… they also wrote the last few Pierce Brosnan 007 films.

I find all the John Glen movies to be painful to watch. He was essentially a stunt director with very little artistic ability. None of his films had soul. They should have gotten rid of him when Timothy Dalton came on board; perhaps his films would be better looked upon as a result.
