Monsters Ball James Bond
Marc Foster, director of Finding Neverland and Monster’s Ball, is set to direct the next James Bond movie. Monster’s Ball earned Halle Barry an Oscar, so maybe we’ll get to see Daniel Craig smooched onstage as well.
The film, not yet written (although there’s a draft by Neil Purvis and Robert Wade) is scheduled to open November 7, 2008. Foster will work on the re-write with Paul Haggis.
Since Finding Neverland, Forster directed two movies yet to be released: The Kite Runner and Stranger Than Fiction.
"I have always been drawn to different kinds of stories, and I have also always been a Bond fan, so it is very exciting to take on this challenge," Forster said.
