Sam Mendes In Talks To Direct 'Bond 23'

British director Sam Mendes is in negotiations to direct the Peter Morgan scripted upcoming James Bond film. The 'American Beauty' director was expected to adapt Garth Ennis's famed 'Preacher' graphic novels this year, but this project now looks to be on the back burner.
