Even though he helmed the most successful 007 film to date, and this is a franchise with a 50-year history mind you, Sam Mendes has said no to directing Bond 24 but was quick to add that he "very much hopes to work with [the Bond family] again sometime in the future" so it may not be the last we see of his cinematic version of Ian Fleming's super-spy.
Speaking with UK magazine Empire, Mendes had nothing but kind words to say about his experience bringing Skyfall to a screen near you, calling it "one of the best experiences of [his] professional life" but added that other commitments will keep him occupied.
What could be so important, you rightly ask, as to keep him from rejoin a team that included Daniel Craig's moody James Bond, (hopefully) Naomie Harris' whip-smart Eve and at least one new Bond Girl and sadistic villain as its members? »
