James Bond 22 Loses Casino Royal Director

This morning we have some bad news for James Bond fans. Martin Campbell, the director behind GoldenEye and the wildly successful Casino Royale will not be helming Bond 22.

Campbell broke the news to press at the Chinese premiere of Casino Royal earlier this week. Campbell said it isn't likely that he will be giving Bond another go, despite the global success.

What we already knew: Daniel Craig is signed on to return and the studio expects to start shooting James Bond 22 (the working title) in early 2008 for a November 7th 2008 release.

Let's hope whomever they hire is at least half as good as Campbell.
