EOL: [SMEND] Won't Direct [JB24]

Posted by: tatoufan on Mar 06, 05:23

“It has been a very difficult decision not to accept Michael and Barbara’s very generous offer to direct the next Bond movie," explained Mendes. "DirectingSkyfall was one of the best experiences of my professional life, but I have theatre and other commitments, including productions of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and King Lear, that need my complete focus over the next year and beyond."

EOL: [SMEND] Won't Direct [JB24]   tatoufan on Mar 06, 05:23

So who should direct the next one? I'm hoping for Chris Nolan, although I remember a HBC interview saying Tim Burton would love to do one.   RufusS on Mar 06, 05:27

I would like to see Paul Greengrass direct Bond. {nm}   tatoufan on Mar 06, 05:39

Joss Whedon {nm}   Samuel_L_Bronkowitz on Mar 06, 06:23

No thanks, I think Helena Bonham Carter would be a lousy Bond girl :-) {nm}   stevie1der328 on Mar 06, 07:05

She would be a great M though. But wouldn't QTarantino be a better option... (...naaaaahhh... Michael Man ! Yes !!!)   JMT-NL on Mar 06, 07:25

They'll probably go ask Kenneth Branagh. {nm}   RogerMore on Mar 06, 08:10

David Fincher {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on Mar 06, 16:12

imagine the opening credits if David Lynch took on 007 {nm}   Richard In G on Mar 06, 06:55

Think "Man With The Golden Gun" on DMT {nm}   Richard In G on Mar 06, 07:05

You were first; Mann with the golden gun. (as in Michael Mann )   JMT-NL on Mar 06, 07:35

are they still sticking to British-only directors? {nm}   tealfan on Mar 06, 08:37

Michael Winterbottom... with Steve Coogan as James Bond.   second gary on Mar 06, 18:59

...Cue the regular articles about Tarantino doing a Bond film... {nm}   numbersix_99 on Mar 06, 08:46

Matthew Vaughn...if Daniel Craig has a say again :D {nm}   tealfan on Mar 06, 12:28

Michael Bay. But only if Shia LaBeouf replaces Craig. {nm}   Dales on Mar 07, 05:03
