Rumors are flying around on-line about Sam Mendes signing on to direct Daniel Craig in the next James Bond movie. Some sites have Mendes directing, others have him coming on to consult while MGM pleads with him to consider directing.
Either way, I think this is excellent news. What worked best about “Casino Royale,” (“Quantum of Solace” was kinda a non-starter,) was the attention paid to the character. Hopefully with a script by “The Queen,” and “Frost/Nixon” writer Peter Morgan, (along with Neal Purvis and Robert Wade,) will get things back on track. And adding Mendes to the project, in any fashion, would be a huge step in the right direction.
