Christopher Nolan in talks to direct the next James Bond movie
In case those last couple of James Bond movies weren't dark enough for you, word is The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan is being shortlisted to direct the next 007 flick. You know, the ones in which a suicidal bond is disavowed by the British government and must save a world that hates and fears him.
When Sam Mendes dropped out of Bond 24, as it's being called for now, the Hollywood feelers went out. The Daily Mail says producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have started talks with Nolan.
He's currently working on a new Anne Hathaway vehicle called Interstellar, which will make the rumored 18 months of pre-production and six months of shooting for Bond a problem. That's what scare Mendes away, anyway.
