Sam Mendes in Negotiations to Direct Bond 23 2010-01-06 05:30:00

Sam Mendes in Talks to Direct Bond 23, Production Moved Up

Ride the Bond 23 roller coaster right here, folks: after reports that the latest installment in the James Bond franchise had been stalled due to MGM's financial concerns, it appears that the opposite is happening: Bond 23 (its current moniker until the real title is adopted) is being fast-tracked to begin production this Summer. What's even more exciting is that Sam Mendes is in negotiations to direct.

I'm a big Mendes fan and am curious to see how he'd tackle a big-budget action flick, especially one as high profile as a James Bond movie. As for details on the movie itself, there's not too much (no Bond girl cast yet), but one interesting tidbit — 23 is partly set in New York. What are your thoughts on Mendes directing — or Bond 23 in general?

After seeing Sherlock Holmes, I'd rather have Guy Ritchie direct. Can you imagine? Also Anonymous: I disagree, Daniel Craig is the perfect rugged yummy JB for me.
