The Next "Bond" Director Has Been Chosen

And it's certainly nobody you'd expect!

The director of "Bond 22" will be ... Marc Forster. Yes, the guy who gave you "Stranger Than Fiction," "Stay," "Finding Neverland," and "Monster's Ball," is about to give you a James Bond movie. (The director also has "The Kite Runner" on the way.)

Production doesn't get underway until December, but Paul Haggis is presently doing his polish of the Neal Purvis / Robert Wade screenplay. (All three writers also worked on "Casino Royale.")



Obviously Daniel Craig will be returning as 007, and I'm betting we'll see some more of Judi Dench too.

So I can't be the only one who thinks this is kind of a weird choice. Not a BAD one, necessarily, but a strange one. Guess we'll find out in November of 2008.
