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 »

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…

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...

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.

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. »

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 »

With Sam Mendes taking a step away from the James Bond franchise to concentrate on exploding legitimate theaters, talk has turned to who will direct the follow-up to Skyfall, and withstand the preemptive criticism for not being Christopher Nolan that’s become standard ever since Nolan expressed his enthusiasm for the franchise. So naturally, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have reportedly approached Christopher Nolan—whom many believe to be the only man who is Christopher Nolan—to see if he’s interested in being Christopher Nolan while directing the 24th James Bond film. It’s a logical move »
After Sam Mendes ruled himself out of directing a second James Bond film after the phenomenal success of last year's Skyfall, speculation has been rife about who will take on the super spy franchise for its 24th official outing. Christopher Nolan is a name that has been bandied about many times, but The Daily Mail is now claiming that he has been aprrochaed by the film's producers.While the actual source of the news is unclear, the British newspaper seems pretty sure that early talks have commenced between Nolan's people and Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. Nolan is currently in pre-production on Interstellar, a sci-fi epic exploring gravity fields and wormholes starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain. That will keep his...

If there's one thing that is very, very, very clear, it's that “Dark Knight” director Christopher Nolan loves James Bond. Ever since he decided to do massive movies, he has included sequences that could have been lifted directly from one of the dashing adventures of Britain's most suave superspy. Nolan knows how to mimic James Bond set pieces in tone and intensity. There's the Hong Kong sequence from “The Dark Knight,” the whole third act of “Inception” (with the snow fort, which seems to have been a hodgepodge lift of various Bond tropes), and the opening sequence of “The Dark Knight Rises,” which had more jaw-dropping spectacle than all of “Quantum of Solace” combined. Now, Nolan may get his chance to do a 007 entry himself. According to the UK paper the Daily Mail (so please, find the biggest grain of salt you can and take it), “informal talks have begun »

The Internet will be drooling over the prospect of Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises) directing James Bond 24. He's talked of his love for the franchise in the past, paying direct homage to On Her Majesty's Secret Service in Inception and the influence it had on his Batman trilogy and now Baz Bamigboye at The Daily Mail reports Nolan is in "informal talks" with Bond producers to direct the next installment in the franchise. Nolan has said he would like to do a Bond film at some point in his career, but he's also recently been quoted by Empire (via The Playlist) saying, "It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things." His next film, Interstellar, is ramping up to begin filming shortly for a 2014 release, which would mean he'd have to quickly turnaround and begin work on Bond 24 to meet »

In the past, Christopher Nolan has expressed interest in directing a James Bond film. Last summer, Nolan, a long-time fan of the series, said he was serious about the prospect, but added "It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things." Although it is absolutely not the right time in their cycle of things, Daily Mail reports that there have been informal talks about directing James Bond 24 between Nolan and Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. As you may recall, Broccoli and Wilson tried to get Skyfall director Sam Mendes to return, but he passed on the gig. In March, we learned that MGM wanted a new Bond movie within 3 years, so the clock is ticking to get someone in the director's chair. The assumption that Nolan would direct Bond 24 is preposterous because Nolan is at work on Interstellar. »

Christopher Nolan's fascination with the James Bond franchise is well documented, but might the acclaimed director finally get his own crack at 007? According to Baz Bamigboye of the Daily Mail, Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have spoken to Nolan about taking over the franchise for the next James Bond film, the 24th in the series.
The vacancy at the helm of Bond 24 stems from the fact that "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes decided against coming back for that film's follow-up. "Was I willing to go straight back into a room with a writer and start work on the same set of characters and the same scenarios as I've been working on for the last three years? No. The idea made me feel physically ill." Mendes told The Guardian in an interview earlier this year. Despite that, Broccoli and Wilson said they would happily work with Mendes »
