Gilroy Under Consideration For Bond 23

Cinema Blend is reporting that writer/director Tony Gilroy is being considered to direct James Bond film number 23.

Gilroy wrote all three Bourne films, “The Devil’s Advocate,” and “Delores Clariborne.”  He also wrote and directed “Michael Clayton,” and “Duplicity.”  The website stresses that Gilroy is one of many being considered, and that pre-production for the new Bond movie is in the very early planning stages.

If Gilroy ends up behind the camera, I would be quite happy.  His writing is top notch, (no word whether Gilroy would even be interested in directing something he didn’t write, or if he would also be asked to co-write the script,) and I’ve enjoyed both of his films.

Of course, we’ll keep you updated with any news, but, this should all be taken with a grain of salt.  A grain of hopeful salt.

Michael Clayton PosterMichael Clayton is a fixer. His 17-year employ at a law firm causes the musing, “He’s been with the firm for 17 years and he’s not a partner?” But Clayton isn’t the type of lawyer firms want to advertise. In fact, he embodies the image and actions of everything that lawyers try to shy away from, but is what we assume is probably the crux of their jobs and their lives. And that seepage into their lives is where the problem lies.

Editorial: The winner is …

I pride myself on a few things: 1.) My supernatural ability to eat licorice, 2.) solving the rubix cube in under two minutes, 3.) my pecs, and 4.) my ability to argue with myself. The last one scores me a super duper opportunity to argue why each of the Best Picture nominees will win. I know that this year there is going to be a snub because ‘Good Luck Chuck’ isn’t even nominated. If you don’t think a movie starring the self proclaimed ‘Dane Train’ is Best Picture quality, then, for you, I weep. I weep manly tears of patriotism covered in chest hair.
