What do you do when there's no James Bond? Head to the beach!

Deadline reports that Sam Mendes isn't letting the delay in the latest James Bond adventure keep him from booking his next project -- or two. The 'Revolutionary Road' director is eyeing 'On Chesil Beach,' based on the novel by Ian McEwan ('Atonement').

'On Chesil Beach' takes place in 1963 and revolves around two repressed virgins in their early 20s whose attempt to consummate ends badly. Mendes is already courting Carey Mulligan to play a lead role.
