I’d love to direct a James Bond film: Friedkin

July 26th, 2012 by bash Comments

William Friedkin has revealed how he would love to helm a James Bond film.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the Exorcist director said he was made an offer several decades ago by producer Albert ‘Cubby’ Broccoli, but declined because he was told that he would only be directing the “acting moments” rather than the action scenes.

However, despite his previous refusal he said he’d still be up for helming a 007 movie.

“I’d be up for doing the second unit, shooting the action – I’d love it,” he said.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
