It's no secret that some films are way harder to make than others. Take the Harry Potter franchise for instance. So much pressure is placed on the director to make a good film that it is usually a surprise to see them sticking around for another go.

Well, it looks like a similar expectation exists for the Bond franchise, and director Marc Forster claims that Quantum of Solace was enough for him.

Quantum of Solace Sequel Without Forster

While talking with FirstShowing, Marc Forster announced that he wasn't planning on returning to direct the sequel, if there was one.

"They offered me the next one, but at this point the pressure is so intense — it's a year of not having a life. And I don't know if I want to do that again. It's literally not having a life, and I mean that, it's not exaggerated. I feel like life is short, you have to find a balance."

With Casino Royale raising the bar on Bond films, it is easy to understand the pressures of high anticipations that Forster encountered. Since most the buzz on the latest Bond installment claims the film is great, it looks like the director lived up to most of the expectations. Even still, the stress of production is not something easy to come back to.

If that disappoints you, then you won't certainly like the rumors going around claiming that Daniel Craig is thinking about not returning as Bond as well. The actor supposedly won't make a decision until he sees how well Quantum of Solace does. Fair enough.

Quantum of Solace opens to theaters on November 7th.
