With Daniel Craig returning to play anti-Bond in another John Logan script about deconstruction, it doesn't matter who directs.

However, if a pro-Bond approach with a pro-Bond actor were to be engaged, I would like to see Brad Bird write and direct. He would tell a straightforward story. He wouldn't need any help from the Broccolis'. He has no feminist agenda or value judgements to espouse. His Mission Impossible 4 Ghost Protocol had action and suspense that shamed the last four Bond films.

So now Craig is not a "pro-Bond" actor? When did that happen? And what is this "feminist agenda" you speak of? I've seen every Bond film numerous times and I never noticed it. Must be me.

It's just more nonsense from an anti-Craig mediocrity. Ignore it.

Good advice.

And that's where you can safely confirm it as a load of nonsense. Bamigboye has put his foot in it countless times and the whole world knows the Mail is a nasty, intolerant rag.

Vaughn is currently unpopular within the UK film industry due to his support for the closure of the UK Film Council.

Not sure I'd agree with that. Vaughn was by no means alone - especially among commercial filmmakers - in that opinion.

I share your dislike of the Mail, generally, but Baz is real journalist - with a genuine enthusiasm for the UK film industry and affection for the Bond films - who doesn't mess around with tittle-tattle. He had a number of scoops on SF which turned out to be true. If he's reporting that Nolan is in talks with Eon, I believe him.
