Sam Mendes Could Direct Back-To-Back James Bond Films

Sam Mendes directs Daniel Craig in Skyfall

It was recently reported that Skyfall director Sam Mendes was likely to return to direct Bond 24. This comes after repeated exclamations that he would not return to direct due to his obligation to produce the theatrical version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and an adaptation of King Lear.

However, the director reportedly entered into talks with EON Productions and Sony Pictures to come back direct another Bond film. Now, there are a few more details coming out of those talks which are pinning the filmmaker to possibly directing not one but two James Bond films.

According to ShowBiz411, Mendes is coming back for Bond 24 and will end up directing Bond 25 as well.

It seems to make a lot of sense since Daniel Craig is signed on to play 007 for two more films. This also refutes the rumors that Christopher Nolan was in line to direct Bond 25. We have yet to hear an official confirmation from any of the camps, but honestly Mendes sticking around for what could be Craig’s final two Bond films seems like the right thing to do, especially since Skyfall was an international success.

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have openly shared that they would love to see Mendes come back for more Bond films, and it looks like their dreams may come true. But even if that doesn’t happen, there are some directors who are rumored to helm the next Bond films. Among those names are Ang Lee, Tom Hooper, David Yates, Nicolas Winding Refn, and Shane Black.
