Christo­pher Nolan wants to di­rect the next James Bond film

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Christo­pher Nolan wants to di­rect a James Bond movie. The ‘Dunkirk’ film­maker has al­ready spo­ken to James Bond pro­duc­ers Bar­bara Broc­coli and Michael G Wil­son about tak­ing the helm of the up­com­ing in­stall­ment of the spy fran­chise as he “deeply loves” the char­ac­ter. Asked if he would ever tackle a James Bond movie, he told Play­boy mag­a­zine: “A Bond movie, def­i­nitely. I’ve spo­ken to the pro­duc­ers Bar­bara Broc­coli and Michael G Wil­son over the years. I deeply love the char­ac­ter and I’m al­ways ex­cited to see what they do with it. “Maybe one day that would work out. You’d have to be needed, if you know what I mean. It has to need rein­ven­tion; it has to need you. And they’re get­ting along very well.” In 2015, Daniel Craig, who cur­rently plays the English spy, was asked if he’d be back again af­ter fin­ish­ing a dif­fi­cult ‘Spec­tre’ shoot and he replied he would rather “slash his wrists”. He also said he doesn’t ‘care about who should take over the role, which stars such as Pierce Bros­nan and Sean Con­nery have played in the past. Since Craig’s com­ments, a num­ber of ac­tors have been ru­moured to take over the role of the Se­cret Ser­vice agent in­clud­ing Tom Hid­dle­ston, Ai­dan Turner, Tom Hardy, Damian Lewis and Idris Elba. How­ever, a source has told the Daily Mir­ror that Craig and Adele - who sang the theme song for ‘Sky­fall’ - are both set to re­turn for the 25th Bond film. The source said: “Craig and Adele to­gether are the win­ning team, the ul­ti­mate choice, the money spin­ners. “It’s taken time but Craig has come round and the strong con­sen­sus in the Bond of­fices in that Craig is 007 again. “As for Adele, she’s more of an un­known quan­tity but loved be­ing part of Bond, so the signs are pos­i­tive.”
