Tarantino wants Bond gig

Pulp Fiction director Quentin Tarantino wants to direct the next James Bond movie.
Tarantino has spoken with star Pierce Brosnan about adapting Casino Royale as Brosnan's fifth and final James Bond film.

The director noted that his challenge would be to convince producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli to diverge from the current formula of expensive action set pieces.

"I don't see that they have anything to lose at all," Tarantino said in an interview while promoting his latest film, Kill Bill, Vol. 2.

Ian Fleming's Casino Royale was first adapted as a comedy in 1967.
