Sam Mendes Directing Daniel Craig in 23rd Bond Film
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Sometimes you read something and you’re frozen with excitement and joy. Such was the case when I read that Sam Mendes will be directing the 23rd James Bond film. The Academy Award winning director will direct the film, with Neal Purvis and Robert Wade writing the script. MGM is looking to fast track the production with a June start date. No word on how the eventual sale of MGM will impact the film.
I have to admit that I’m incredibly excited about this. Mendes makes outstanding films, his last being AWAY WE GO. With him, Daniel Craig and a decent script, this could possibly top the amazing CASINO ROYALE. And even though I liked QUANTUM OF SOLACE, I think Mendes will be a welcomed change of pace. So I’ll go ahead and throw this out there; how about his wife, Kate Winslet as a Bond girl?
