Sam Mendes to direct new James Bond, hopefully with new ski chase scene

Sam Mendes, director of “American Beauty” and “Revolutionary Road” fame, is set to direct the 23rd James Bond film. Mr. Mendes has quite a solid list of films and stage productions under his belt, and no doubt he’ll make Daniel Craig’s latest Bond flick a strong one. The two worked together before on “Road to Perdition”.

All flattery aside, we ask that he please please include another ski chase scene, like in “The Spy Who Loved Me”…it would make the film Oscar worthy, and would certainly garner an approval of Daniel Craig’s version of Bond from all of us in the ski and snowboard world.

What do you say Mr. Mendes? Can you work it in? Watch the clip below, and you’ll realize what a crime it would be to NOT have another epic Bond ski chase scene…
