Christopher Nolan To Direct Bond 24?18.05.13 # News # 6 Comments
Some “informal talks” are said to have taken place between the Dark Knight man and Bond bigwigs Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson.
While many will be please to see Nolan’s name attached to Bond 24, there’s nothing to suggest these discussions have moved onto anything more serious.
Skyfall director Sam Mendes turned down the offer the next Bond due to commitments involving his theatre work. Christopher Nolan has previously expressed his desire to direct a 007 movie, and there’s little doubt among fan minds that he’d do a superb job.
So what would be stopping him? One word: Interstellar. Nolan is currently entering pre-production for his next film, which will star Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey and is aiming for a November 2014 release.
So scheduling in a Bond film straight after might a bit too tight on Nolan’s calendar right now, and perhaps too long a wait for the 007 producers. But even if he has to turn down the gig this time round, Nolan for Bond 25?
