Here is the brand-new interview with two time James Bond director Martin Campbell who directed “GoldenEye” (1995) with Pierce Brosnan as James Bond and “Casino Royale” (2006) with Daniel Craig as 007.

The interview features Martin’s experience filming “GoldenEye“, why he turned down several Bond films after (and what made him come back for “Casino Royale“), and fighting with Sony regarding the casting of Eva Green as Vesper.

Brando Benetton says:

“Today’s conversation marks the 15th anniversary of CASINO ROYALE, and in the episode we discuss how Martin started his career in the UK as a TV cameraman; why he turned down the opportunity to direct THE MASK OF ZORRO 3 times before getting the phone call from Steven Spielberg that finally convinced him; a tribute to his friend and composer, James Horner; his evolving relationship with the 007 franchise, and his approach to directing action on big and small budgets; the creative and commercial misfire that was GREEN LANTERN. All of this… and much more!

Martin’s latest movie THE PROTÉGÉ is available now to stream, and his next film MEMORY will be released in 2022.
