As the focus of the James Bond community slowly begins to transition from Quantum of Solace to Bond 23, one key question up for discussion is what kind of direction will this next film take.
Despite turning down the opportunity to return for Daniel Craig’s third 007 film, Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster recently shared a few ideas on how the series should move forward–reports MTV News.
When the set of recent rumours surrounding Bond 23 came up for discussion (including Danny Boyle directing denial), Forster stated that he was a fan of Boyle, but the choice of the next director would be heavily influenced by the script.
‘It really depends on what direction they want to take it,’ he said. ‘For me, I wanted to take it to a harder and darker place, but now that that journey I’ve gone on has succeeded, I feel like the next one can take it to a bit more humorous place again.’
He continued: ‘I feel like next time you should take it in a lighter and more humorous way, maybe add a few more girls and a bit more sex–all that kind of stuff. I think that would be interesting.’
When Daniel Craig was questioned about moving into a lighter tone for his next Bond film last year, he said: ‘Yeah, there’s room for more comedy.’
