Christopher Nolan Won't Be Director Of Next 'James Bond' Film

Christopher Nolan Won't Be Director Of Next 'James Bond' Film

Martin Campbell gave Bond a gritty reboot in 2006's Casino Royale, while Mendes has helmed the series since Skyfall as one of only two directors to tackle two 007 movies in a row.

Christopher Nolan has shot down rumours that he is set to direct the next James Bond film, but said he would love to take on 007 at some point in his career.

Oil prices continue to rise
WTI futures were up 1.04 percent to $62.32 per barrel, while Brent crude futures were down 0.30 percent to $65.47 per barrel. The American Petroleum Institute (API) is set to state its forecast regarding the USA crude supply on Wednesday.

He told Young: "I won't be the man (to direct the next Bond)". "No, categorically. Every time they hire a new director I'm sort of rumored to be doing it".

He continued: "I've always listened to film scores, because the best film scores they leave a little space for the imagery so you have space to listen to them and imagine".

Sports court identifies Russian Olympic curler in doping case
The announcement of a doping scandal in curling is threatening to cause a meltdown in the Winter Olympics in South Korea. Russian women's curling coach Sergei Belanov said he didn't believe that a young and "clever man" would dope.

Well, that's because Nolan has previously gushed about the franchise and his desire to take it on. They don't particularly need me. The director behind Interstellar, The Dark Knight trilogy, and last year's Dunkirk has a knack for taking a conventional kind of film (superhero, war epic, psychological thriller) and turning it on its head. I think Daniel Craig is a fantastic actor and I would like to (work with him), but several months ago I came in to do Dune, and I engaged myself. Nolan has not as yet announced his next movie project.

Christopher Nolan just wants to make his own movies. This time, the other names as well as Nolan include Blade Runner 2049's Denis Villeneuve and haven't ruled out a female director either. The state of Bond 25 is an interesting one, and it was something of an uphill struggle to even get Craig to sign on.

It is believed the taxi driver, who called police on the night in question, has decided against pressing charges. The decision will come as some relief to Alan Pardew as he fights to remain in charge at the Hawthorns.

The so-far untitled Bond 25 will report for duty on November 8th, 2019 - you know, assuming the Powers That Be can find a director to replace Sam Mendes before the year's end.
