The chances of Christopher Nolan directing the next James Bond film are pretty slim considering the fact that he is already directing Interstellar for Paramount and Warner Brothers. But what if the sci-fi film about traveling through wormholes starring Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey, and Michael Caine, were to be cast aside so that Nolan could direct the next Bond film? Hard to see that happen, but there is a rumor that is starting to surface that indicate that this could very well happen.
Considering that the report comes from The Daily Mail, this rumor could be nothing more than just a rumor. According to them, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have begun informal talks with The Dark Knight Rises director. But just because Nolan cannot direct Bond 24, doesn’t mean he cannot direct the one after it. As The Daily Mail said, â€œIt does no harm for Broccoli and Wilson to talk with Nolan, even if nothing happens this time round.â€
That line of thinking does make a lot of sense, but everyone’s schedules would have to be completely synced. Nolan could possibly direct a Bond film at some point in time, but it all depends on how fast MGM wants to churn these Bond films out. MGM wants the Bond 24 film to come out some time during 2014, so the one after it could be scheduled some time in 2016, which could fit in Nolan’s schedule.
All this news comes after Skyfall director Sam Mendes confirmed he wasn’t coming back to direct Bond 24. So now that we possibly have a director for Bond 25, who should direct Bond 24?
