Marc Forster to Direct Bond 22

Hadn’t been watching my news feeds today, but CBn picked it up:

The official press release:


Marc Forster to Direct ‘Bond 22’

Marc Forster will direct the 22nd James Bond adventure, it was announced today by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, producers of the James Bond films, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios.

Forster is the acclaimed director of the highly anticipated motion picture The Kite Runner, adapted from Khaled Hosseini’s best-selling novel. He also recently directed the comic hit Stranger Than Fiction for Sony Pictures. Previously, Forster directed the award-winning and critically acclaimed films Finding Neverland, which was nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, and Monster’s Ball, for which Halle Berry won a Best Actress Oscar.

Forster will commence work shortly with screenwriter Paul Haggis on a draft of the screenplay by Neil Purvis and Robert Wade.

This looks good to me. I thought Monster’s Ball was excellent, and Stranger Than Fiction was a pleasant comedy that didn’t quite acheive its potential, but got some fabulous performances out of some amazing actors.

Funny that his biggest movie was also Halle Berry’s biggest.
