Daniel Craig, New Director Attached to Latest Bond Film

Daniel CraigI sometimes forget how lucky I am.  I have food, shelter, family, friends….and now the opportunity to see the sexy Daniel Craig buttoned up in another suit.  Life is good.

It should come as no surprise that Craig was recently confirmed for the next 007 film.  His turn as the legendary James Bond helped bring Casino Royale amazing reviews and impressive box office numbers—and made this girl care about the series once again.

Of particular note was the name tapped for the helm of this latest venture:  Marc Forster.  The acclaimed director—known for his work on Finding Neverland, Monster’s Ball and Stranger Than Fiction—will be taking over the reins from Royale director, Martin Campbell.  Oscar-award winning screenwriter Paul Haggis (Crash) will once again return to help adapt the screenplay.  He also contributed to the Casino script.

Forster recently wrapped work on the film adaptation of a best-selling novel, The Kite Runner.  Production on ‘Bond 22’ is set to begin at the end of this year in hopes of a November 2008 release.
