All right, all right. Since it’s been sort-of unofficially confirmed that Sam Mendes is signed up for the catchily-named ‘Bond 24’, this is a bit academic but nevertheless his name comes up each and every time a new helmer is needed for the 007 franchise. In fact it was even believed that Christopher Nolan had been informally approached for the next Bond movie before Sam Mendes eventually agreed to return.
Around the time of Inception (2010)—and Christopher Nolan mentioning that film’s debt to the James Bond movies in general and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969) in particular—the Internet nearly exploded with volleys of counter-attacks saying why Nolan would be the best or worst thing to happen to Ian Fleming’s superspy.
