    Director Marc Forster has again said that he’s not planning on returning to the 007 series to direct what will be Daniel Craig’s third film as James Bond, the currenty-titled Bond 23.

    Speaking to a Cinematical correspondent at last week’s fan Question & Answer session in London, Forster expressed his wish to move onto a smaller project following Quantum of Solace.

    ‘At this point I’d rather go back to doing something smaller,’ he stated, ‘you know, it was a good experience and they’ve been very generous in saying I would love to do the next one with you, but it’s just, you know, it takes like a long time and it’s exhausting and I think it’s important to live life as well and, you know, but I did enjoy it, yeah.’

    Forster was asked the question earlier this year and said ‘no’ at the time as well, saying that if he was ever to direct a film as large-scale as the Bond prodcutions, he would want it to be apart of his own franchise that he himself created.
