A recent ComingSoon.net interview has confirmed the IMDb listing that Kevin Todd Haug will be the visual effects supervisor for next year’s James Bond film.
Speaking to the website was Zach Helm about his current film, Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium (he also wrote the screenplay to the Marc Forster-directed Stranger Than Fiction.
When asked if Bond 22 director Forster had mentioned anything about the film, Helm said: ‘He is good at keeping a secret. We used the same visual effects supervisor Kevin Haug, a genius, and so Kevin has gone from Than Fiction to this movie to Kite Runner and now he’s doing Bond. I’ve heard quite a few of the details, and it’s pretty exciting actually… but I’m good at keeping a secret, too.’
Like Bond 22 cinematographer Roberto Schaefer, Haug has had a history of working on Forster films. He held the visual effects supervisor position for Finding Neverland, Stay, Stranger Than Fiction and Forster’s newest film, The Kite Runner.
In Casino Royale, the position was held by Steven Begg. The film later went on to win a Visual Effects Society (VES) award in February 2007.
