Enough 007 for Mendes
BRITISH director Sam Mendes says he probably won’t work on any more James Bond films after the latest instalment of the longrunning film series, Spectre, which opens in London in October.
“I said no to the last one and then ended up doing it, and was pilloried by all my friends,” Mendes has told the BBC. “But I do think this is probably it.
“It feels almost, even though we’ve just finished shooting it, like one big experience and it was a fantastic life- changing thing.”
Mendes, 49, directed the stage production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory between working on the Bond films Skyfall and Spectre.
“I’m happiest rehearsing a play or editing a movie,’’ the director said.
“It feels like home.’’
