Director Marc Forster still defending his work on 'Quantum of Solace'
"Quantum of Solace" director Marc Forster is still fielding questions about his work on the film which left a lot of critics and fans disappointed after the almost universally appreciated "Casino Royale" helmed by Martin Campbell.
Speaking to IndieWire
about his upcoming movie "Machine Gun Preacher", Forster admitted that there were drawbacks with heading into such a big property
ââQuantum of Solaceâ was a bit of a different circumstance than a lot of my other films because youâre stepping into a franchise, and also in that particular film, weâre dealing with a script from the writerâs strike, which was difficult to handle because there was never time to really develop a finished script. Most of the time was about scouting locations more than what was on the page.â All that being said, he likes the film, while acknowledging that it may not have been what people were after from a Bond picture: âIâm very pleased with how the film turned out. I do think in the third act, some of it I wish we could have had more time to develop the script in a more profound and in-depth wayâ¦ Itâs just that it was a very intensified and rushed experience. People are always looking for what they love most in that particular franchise, and ultimately you canât please everyone. I was very aware going into it that my objective in that particular film was to make it more like a â70s, very straightforward revenge movie, and that sort of pace was my point of view.â
âMachine Gun Preacherâ opens in New York and Los Angeles on September 23rd, and goes wider the following Friday, September 30th.
