WTF - Sam Mendes [SMEND] to direct the 23rd James Bond [JB23] film?!?

I really have to agree with the LA Times on this one, this has bad idea written all over it!

Mendes' biggest-grossing film was "American Beauty," his splashy Hollywood debut that made $130 million domestically (it also won five Oscars, including best picture). His second film, "Road to Perdition," made $104 million. His next, "Jarhead," topped out at $62 million. "Revolutionary Road" only grossed $22 million while his most recent film, last year's road-trip comedy "Away We Go," struggled to earn $9.4 million.

Somehow I can't see [SMEND] doing a good job on [JB23] but the stock is up .63 on the news, what is there to look forward to? .380 and .308 shells dancing their way out of the gun?
