With Sam Mendes passing on the opportunity to helm the next instalment in the James Bond franchise, Eon Productions has a pretty big job on its hands replacing the Skyfall director for 007's next big screen adventure. However, if a new rumour is to be believed, it seems that producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are looking to turn to another acclaimed British filmmaker, with The Daily Mail reporting that Christopher Nolan is in early talks about directing Bond 24.
On the surface, it seems highly unlikely that Nolan could fit Bond 24 into his schedule, with The Dark Knight Trilogy director currently prepping his mysterious sci-fi flick Interstellar, which is due to open in cinemas on November 7th, 2014. However, back in March MGM Chairman Gary Barber said to expect Daniel Craig's fourth outing "within the next three years" so it could be a possibility if Sony, Eon »

Martin Deer on the reaction to the potential change of gender for Superman's pal Jimmy - or rather Jenny - Olsen...
Now that I have your attention, breathe... I like that Jimmy is now a Jenny - if that is even actually the case.
A few months back a rumour was started on a fan site suggesting that Zack Snyder's Man of Steel would feature a pretty substantial change to one of Superman's main supporting characters - Jimmy Olsen would now be a Jenny. In the second trailer for Man of Steel, Lawrence Fishburne's Perry White can be seen running for his life through Metropolis with young actress Rebecca Buller, and now further to that a new publication due to be released as a tie-in to the movie features a set photo of this particular scene and has again pushed opinion in overdrive, as it lists Fishburne and »

Christopher Nolan, the man who sucessfully recreated Batman for a new generation, may get his shot at filming his interpretation of Agent 007. Nolan is in talks to possibly direct the next James Bond film.
Ever since Skyfall director Sam Mendes decided not to come back for the planned 24th Bond film, the search for a new director has begun. Recently, Bond franchise producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G .Wilson have spoken to the red-hot Nolan about taking over the 007 franchise for the next James Bond film in the series. After all, who better to follow up the most successful Bond film ever (Skyfall) but the man who made Batman into box-office gold.
Nolan is an admited fan of the James Bond films, and his gritty style of filmmaking would be a good match for the more realistic style of the rebotted Bond franchise, starring Daniel Craig as 007. When discussing Bond last year in an interview, »

Ever since "Skyfall" grossed over $1 billion at global box office and became the most successful James Bond installment, producers started thinking about how they will top it. Unfortunately, Sam Mendes will likely not return to direct and people like Danny Boyle have no interest in tackling franchise films. So the one name that keeps popping up is Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight), who previously said that he would one day love to direct a James Bond movie. The Daily Mail is now reporting that "James Bond" producer Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have approached Nolan and negotiations are now in early stages. Nolan is currently working on his "Interstellar" film, and it's not clear if he'll be able to complete it and still have time to begin work on the new Bond movie. Stay tuned. »
He made us love Batman even more with "The Dark Knight" series, and he's about to do the same thing with Superman as executive producer of "Man of Steel," and now, Christopher Nolan may put his magic touch to James Bond.
Having Nolan as director of anything is wonderufl! I worship his filmmaking abilities. But let's wait and see if Bond 24 will fall under his guidance. »
In March, Empire reported that Sam Mendes, who directed the 23rd James Bond film, Skyfall, would not return to direct Bond 24. This was bad news because Skyfall was a critical and commercial success. After the lukewarm Quantum of Solace, Mendes had steered the ship back into Casino Royale territory.
How lucky are we, to have had two incredible Bond films within a span of 6 years? It’s a bit of a Bond renaissance if you ask me and it could continue if this next bit of news pans out the way we want it to…
Daily Mail reports that Christopher Nolan has been approached to direct the next James Bond film.
Daily Mail says informal talks have begun between Nolan’s representatives and the producers of the almighty Bond films.
Although this is exciting news, Nolan is currently working on his sci-fi epic, Interstellar. Would this affect his ability to direct Bond 24?

He’s British. He’s beloved as a filmmaker. And he is a self-professed Bond fan. But does that mean Christopher Nolan is the right director to helm James Bond 24? I ask in response to a new report in The Daily Mail claiming that producers of the Bond franchise are in “informal talks” with Nolan about possibly filling the vacancy left by Skyfall helmer Sam Mendes. “It does no harm for [Bond producers] Broccoli and Wilson to talk with Nolan, even if nothing happens this time round,” a source tells the newspaper. That doesn’t exactly sound like it’s set in stone. And there are reasons why Nolan wouldn’t be available for Bond 24. He is in pre-production on his own...

Even superheroes need a makeover sometimes. It's happened before, with Batman and Iron Man and plenty of other comic book characters; even Superman isn't immune. For the upcoming "Man of Steel," director Zack Snyder and co-writers David S. Goyer and Christopher Nolan made sure to distance their movie from previous installments by not putting "Superman" in the title, and giving the movie some technological tweaks and a grittier vibe. Goyer explained by in an Empire podcast a few weeks ago. "We always knew we would be using the Superman glyph or the shield as we call it. But 'Man Of Steel' was also supposed to represent our take, which was he's a man, but he's not made of flesh and blood, metaphorically he's a man of steel. So that was sort of the whole thing wrapped up in a nutshell." It doesn't hurt that a 2006 attempt to bring »

With Skyfall‘s Sam Mendes deciding against returning for the next film, the search for a Bond 24 director is now under-way. The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has previously said he’d “love to do a Bond film” as he thinks “James Bond is one of the great characters in contemporary fiction”. If things work out, [...]

The script of the 24th Bond movie is currently being worked on, with plans to come out in the next three years. Christopher Nolan, of course, is working on Interstellar, and prepping that for a November 7th, 2014. He’d have to jump right on Bond soon after to satisfy MGM’s timeline, but Nolan has expressed admiration and interest in the James Bond franchise in the past. Needless to say, everyone probably wants this to happen, and if I was MGM, I’d let him do it on his own timetable to secure his services, even if Daniel Craig isn’t getting any younger. »

Christopher Nolan – the filmmaker who uses his gritty realism in almost every Superhero movie these days because comic books are for children – maybe can inject some of it into the Bond franchise. Additionally, Nolan is a huge James Bond fan, and has said in the past that he would be interested in doing a Bond film at some point. On the other hand, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G .Wilson’s clock is ticking to get someone in the director’s chair as MGM wanted a new Bond movie within 3 years (Sam Mendes passed on the gig). To get to the point Daily Mail »

Christopher Nolan has been approached to direct the next 007 movie according to The Daily Mail.
Nolan is also committed to "Interstellar" which means it's unlikely Nolan could do the immediate next Bond film even if he wanted to.
A Bond series source says: "It does no harm for Broccoli and Wilson to talk with Nolan, even if nothing happens this time round."

Daily Mail writer Baz Bamigboye says Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are in talks with Christopher Nolan and his people for the 24th installment in the James Bond series. While it's still very early, Nolan might have a conflict issue as he is set to be filming his next big film Interstellar soon. That being said Nolan had no problem in directing both The Prestige and Inception between installments of his Dark Knight franchise. Speaking of Inception, Nolan was actually quoted in an article back in 2011 as saying the Bond films were a huge influence on the film and even went on to say this:
I’ve loved the Bond films since I was a kid. For me, they’re always about the expansiveness of cinema. The first Bond films set up infinite possibilities about the world they create. I’d love to do a Bond film. »

Christopher Nolan is the name that pops up whenever nerds talk about revamping or reinvigorating a dark, action-based film franchise, but in the case of James Bond, it's warranted. The director, an admitted Bond nerd, has discussed the series' influence on his Batman films. "That globe-trotting thing, that idea of trying to get you along for a ride, that was very much a jumping-off point cinematically [for the Dark Knight trilogy]," he said last year. Inception also featured a nod to classic Bond in the ski-chase sequence that referenced 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service. After the smashing success of Bond 23, Skyfall, many assumed director Sam Mendes would sign on for another go-round. A few months ago, Mendes announced he wouldn't be...

Christopher Nolan, last seen sending Batman flying off into the sunset in “The Dark Knight Rises” and currently hard at work on his sci-fi epic “Interstellar”, is reportedly said to have been offered the reins of the next James Bond movie. The Daily Mail quotes unnamed sources as saying that “informal talks have begun between Nolan, his representatives and the powers behind the James Bond pictures” for Nolan to take over Bond 24 after “Skyfall’s” Sam Mendes bailed on the sequel in favor of theater work. “Skyfall”, as you’ll recall, grossed over $1 billion dollars, becoming the highest grossing Bond movie of all time, despite some shoddy scripting and plotting and what was, in my opinion, an incredibly lame Third Act that involved Bond fighting villains “Home Alone”-style. Daniel Craig is expected to return as Bond whenever the 24th movie in the franchise begins shooting. From the sounds of it, »
Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are currently seeking a director for Bond 24, after Sam Mendes (Skyfall) turned down their offer to make the sequel back in March. The Dark Knight Rises filmmaker Christopher Nolan has been approached by the producers to direct the latest installment of their James Bond franchise.
Nothing is official as of yet, since talks are still in very early and informal stages, but the filmmaker recently met with the producers.
We reported in October that the producers are seeking a fall 2014 release date for this 007 adventure, which may pose a scheduling conflict for Christopher Nolan. He is currently in pre-production on his next movie, Interstellar, which has been set for a November 7, 2014 release.
Here's what an insider had to say about the informal discussions.
"It does no harm for Broccoli and Wilson to talk with Nolan, even if nothing happens this time round. »
At this rate, Marvel might be just as rich as “Iron Man 3′s” fictional billionaire playboy/philanthropist/part-time superhero Tony Stark, with the comic book threequel officially surpassing the much-ballyhooed $1 billion worldwide box office this week, making it just the 16th film to do so. (Though “Jurassic Park”, thanks to its recent 3D re-release, is threatening to make it the 17th film.) It’s looking likely that “Iron Man 3″ will overtake Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight”, which currently sits at #15 in all-time worldwide box office with $1.004 billion. It’s also not out of the question that ol Shellhead’s third outing could potentially catch up to #14′s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” ($1.017 billion) and “Alice in Wonderland” (at $1.024 billion). As of today, “Iron Man 3″ has earned just a shade over $300 million domestically and nearly $700 million worldwide, thanks to the film bowing overseas first. The people most »

Please stop joy crying. There are some things to discuss first.
Yes, it's true. Some publication out there (specifically Daily Mail) has reported something to the tune of "Christopher Nolan has had informal talks with Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson about directing 'Bond 24.' "
This isn't isn't coming out of left field. Nolan has filled his recent films, "Inception" and "The Dark Knight Rises" especially, with references to 007, and he has previously expressed interested in eventually directing a film. He told Empire, "It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things."
But there are a few problems with this report.
The main problem right now is timing. Nolan is pretty much in full "Interstellar" mode. He has already cast his principles, Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, and he's got a late 2014 release date on the books. That's a quick turnaround for »
