Christian Wagner To Edit Bond 21?
Editor Christian Wagner, who worked on Die Another Day, is returning for Bond 21 according to the IMDb.
While the IMDb is an unreliable source on films still in production, the timing of Wagner’s hiring is logical. Bond 21 will start lensing in just over a year indicating that the hiring process for the production staff will currently be in progress.
If accurate, the hiring of Wager may indicate that Bond 21 will feature many of the same production staff as Die Another Day – a logical move for both Eon Productions and MGM given the success of the 20th James Bond film.
Wagner, who has worked on films such as Spy Game and Mission Impossible II, caused a rift in the Bond fan community with his ‘Matrix’ style editing, particularly featured during scenes set in Iceland.
