Quantum of Solace picture
"Casino Royale" director Martin Campbell has stated that he would not be back behind the camera for "Bond 22."


No, Martin Campbell won't be back for more James Bond. The filmmaker himself stated to press at the Chinese premiere for "Casino Royale" on Monday, January 29 that he would not likely be directing "Bond 22" amid the huge success of the 21st installment worldwide.

With Campbell's announcement, the director seat for the project therefore remains vacant after Roger Michell previously decided to quit the negotiations for the spot back in August 2006.

As for the flick, "Bond 22" will continue the story left in "Royale" with Daniel Craig returning as the 007. Exact production date on the movie has not yet been revealed, but screenwriter Robert Wade revealed earlier this week that there has been a plan to start filming at the beginning of next year.
