Quentin Tarantino may direct next 'Bond'

LOS ANGELES, April 7 (UPI) -- Popular U.S. director and "Pulp Fiction" creator Quentin Tarantino has said he may direct the next installment of the "James Bond" film franchise.

"There's a thin chance that it might work out. I've talked to Pierce Brosnan about doing it," Tarantino was quoted as saying Wednesday in Britain's The Guardian.

The "Kill Bill" director and the British actor who plays 007 also have discussed adapting Ian Fleming's' "Casino Royale," Brosnan's favorite Bond novel, for the next screenplay.

"I don't know that they have anything to lose," Tarantino said about his role as a Bond director. "They've got this gigantic franchise. They can't go wrong with it. Pierce Brosnan is only going to do one more movie for them, if that. So if he stayed on to do one more for me ... I won't do anything that will ruin the series."

Brosnan reportedly has been negotiating his return as 007 for several months. Australian actor Hugh Jackman's name has come up as a possible replacement should Brosnan retire from the role.
