Bourne Stunt Director Does Bond

EON Productions and Sony Pictures have hired Dan Bradley, the stunt coordinator and second unit director of the last two “Bourne” films to work in the same capacity on “Bond 22”.

The Hollywood Reporter says that 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 plotted out and directed the acclaimed fight sequences and car chases in both the Paul Greengrass-helmed “Bourne” sequels. Bradley has worked in the same capacities on “Indiana Jones 4,” the two “Spider-Man” sequels, “Superman Returns,” and “Seabiscuit”.
