“Monster’s Ball” Director Marc Forster to Helm Next James Bond Movie

"Monster's Ball" Director Marc Forster to Helm Next James Bond Movie

I really dug the last James Bond film, “Casino Royale.” Like “Batman Begins,” the filmmakers decided to take an iconic pop culture character and reinvent him with a realistic grittiness and complicated psychology. With the success of that film comes some more exciting news. Marc Forster, who indieWIRE hosted a chat with at Apple Store Soho in May (listen to the podcast here) has “signed on to direct the next installment in the James Bond franchise for Columbia Pictures and MGM,” according to Super Hero Hype.

Daniel Craig will also reprise his role as James Bond. Check out the clip above to see why he is definitely the best Bond since Sean Connery.
