IMDb has today confirmed what CBn first reported in July, that high-profile editor Stuart Baird will be the editor of Casino Royale, the twenty-first James Bond film due to start production in January 2006. Baird has just wrapped post-production on the Martin Campbell directed The Legend of Zorro.
The English-born Baird has edited such blockbusters as the first Christopher Reeve Superman film, Lethal Weapon, Mission: Impossible 2, and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (for which he also received an executive producer credit). He also directed the last installment of the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek: Nemesis.
IMDb has also reported that Chris Corbould will join the crew as special effects coordinator. Corbould has handled special effects on all the Bond movies starting with 1985’s A View To A Kill. His most recent film was Batman Begins.
Eon and Sony are expected to make a decision on who will play 007 this week.
