Marc Forster Shares First Thoughts On "Reinventing" James Bond

by | June 27, 2007 | Comments

Marc Forster was just announced as the director of the next James Bond movie and made his first public appearance at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

In a panel discussion with director Paul Haggis, Forster was there to share experiences with filmmakers. Though he seems like an unusual choice for a big action movie, it’s something he’s thought about for a long time.

"I always was fascinated with action films and I always loved them," said Forster. "I always wanted to do one and now with the reinvention of Daniel Craig and Mr. Haggis, I thought it could be an interesting journey."

After said reinvention, Forster plans to enjoy artistic freedom to make a Bond movie his way. "Obviously, this new one is not based on a book so there’s quite a bit of freedom to it. It’s just something I always wanted to do and it felt right. All my decisions are made purely based on instinct so especially after The Kite Runner, it was mostly subtitled, no stars, I thought it couldn’t be a bigger opposite to that so I thought it would be a great collaboration with Paul and Daniel."

The James Bond team has a second unit that is well versed in 007 action, but Forster is planning to change that up too. "I’m probably going to work with a second unit director who hasn’t worked with them before."
