Nolan wants to direct next James Bond film
The filmmaker says he has been in talks with the producers of the franchise and may one day helm a Bond film
Filmmaker Christopher Nolan has been in talks with the James Bond producers and could be in line to direct the next film. Asked if he would ever tackle a James Bond movie, Nolan said, “A Bond movie, definitely. I’ve spoken to the producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson over the years. I deeply love the character and I’m always excited to see what they do with it.”
He went on to add, “Maybe one day, that would work out. You would have to be needed, if you know what I mean. It has to need reinvention; it has to need you. And they are getting along very well.”
In 2015, Daniel Craig, who currently plays the English spy, was asked if he would be back again after finishing a difficult Spectre shoot and he had replied he would rather “slash his wrists.”
But sources state that Craig has “changed his mind” and will return to the next film—Bond 25. Producer Broccoli is also confident about roping in Adele for the film’s theme music after their successful collaboration in Skyfall.
