Casino Royale Yes, Tarantino No

Well, the next James Bond movie is confirmed as Casino Royale, but Tarantino is not going to be involved. Instead, the Bond folks picked Martin Campbell who also directed GoldenEye.

Ultimately, I think this decision was made to keep Bond about Bond, and not run the risk of letting it become a Quentin Tarantino movie about Bond. It likely also relegates the series to just a bunch of ‘more of the same’ movies that will continue the legacy without enhancing it one bit.
