EON Productions and Columbia Pictures have hired The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum action designer Dan Bradley as the second unit director for Bond 22.
The Hollywood Reporter says Bradley plotted out and directed the acclaimed fight sequences and car chases as the stunt coordinator and second unit director of the two Paul Greengrass-helmed “Bourne” sequels and will service the working-titled Bond 22 in much the same capacity.
According to the trade, the producers want him to continue and build on the more realistic and gritty approach to the veteran British spy begun in last year’s Casino Royale.
While no date has been set, Bond 22 is eyeing an official start date in the winter.
Bradley is coming off of working on Indiana Jones 4. His recent credits as second unit director include the two “Spider-Man” sequels, Superman Returns and Seabiscuit.
