Christopher Nolan wants to direct a Bond film Published By Alexa Caruso on Jul 11, 2017

Christopher NolanAfter news came through that Daniel Craig is nearly ready to reprise his role as the famous British spy, Oscar-nominated director Christopher Nolan has revealed his interest in directing a James Bond film.

In an interview with Playboy, the director famous for hit films such as The Dark Knight series and Inception mentioned he's very interested in directing the 007 character created by Ian Fleming, even revealing he's already spoken with franchise producers about it. He told the magazine: "A Bond movie, definitely. I’ve spoken to the producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson over the years. I deeply love the character, and I’m always excited to see what they do with it."

But what would it take for the talented director to take the job? Well, according to Nolan, he would only take the reins if the franchise needed "reinvention," adding, "Maybe one day would work out. You’d have to be needed, if you know what I mean. It has to need reinvention; it has to need you. And they’re getting along very well."

So naturally, we wonder what would a Christopher Nolan Bond film look like. It would surely be action-packed, mysterious and smart -- that's for sure.

But in the meantime, you can catch his next film, the WWII drama, Dunkirk, in theaters July 21st.

    Make this happen! Have him and his brother write it and let the originality flow freely! This would be epic.

    Sure! Why not but let him have his choice for the NEXT actor for his Bond story telling and yeah...perhaps create the next set of Bond movies with his vision of the Bond Stories to set up the next 4 or 5 movies. Craig shouldn't be back after Bond 25. No doubt he has done an ecstatic job till now. Nolan is a proven masterful story teller and he would do no wrong taking the character into the next generation. Perhaps a Bond Origins Movie? How come no one wishes to tackle? How an adopted Boy became the most dangerous and beloved Agent in the World. Stop with all the overdose of CGI, tell a great story, the movies will carry itself...and remember a vodka martini..shaken..not stirred remember! 007>)

    Unfortunate; Craig is the perfect 007 for a Nolan Bond movie.
