From Batman To Bond For Nolan?

Christopher Nolan, the man behind the hugely successful Dark Knight trilogy, has apparently been approached by Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson to direct the next James Bond film.  It is very early days yet but it has never been a secret that Nolan is a massive Bond fan and apparently also a fan of current Bond incumbent Daniel Craig.  After the success of the last Bond film, Skyfall, it was hoped that director Sam Mendes would return but he’s busy working on his stage production of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and was unwilling to commit 18 months of his life to another 007 outing.  Nolan is not exactly twiddling his thumbs looking for things to do.  He’s about to see the release of Man Of Steel which he produced for Warner Bros. while also in pre-production on his own sic-fi opus Interstellar which already has Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain and Dark Knight Rises star Anne Hathaway set to star.  Given his schedule it seems Nolan would be unable to take the helm for the next Bond film but it could be Broccoli and Wilson are sounding him out for involvement in future Bond productions.  Watch this space.  Source – The Daily Mail

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
