No More Bond for Forster; No Thor for Daniel Craig
10.22.08 by REELZ
Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster revealed on
Monday that he was offered, but declined, the director's job on the next James Bond flick. "They
offered me the next one," the Switzerland native told us.
"But I'd like to switch genres. I don't want to do (Bond 23) because when
you're doing these kinds of movies, you don't have a life. You're working all
year, 24/7, around the clock, and that's what your life becomes. I don't
necessarily want to do that again."
In other Bond-related news, IESB reports that
Quantum star Daniel Craig turned down the starring role in Thor. Craig, who's currently
committed to making two more 007 flicks, said that playing Marvel Comics' Norse
god/superhero would be "too much of a power trip."
If Craig is ever seriously concerned that he might
be on the verge of a power trip, all he needs to do is pop in a DVD of The
Golden Compass. That should bring him back down to earth in no time.
