You could have said the same about Mendes.

No. Mendes is not a brand name. Nolan has the most rabid fanbase and is a name brand now. Mendes is not. Maybe earlier in his career Nolan woudl have done a Bond. Same as Spielberg. Will never happen now.

How can you say Mendes is not a brand name. American Beauty and Road to Perdition were hailed as Mendes's unique style of story telling. Nolan is the hot ticket now just like Mendes was in 1999 when American Beauty won 5 Oscars including best director. The Road to Perdition Won 3. A lot of people who did not enjoy bond films of the past but loved Skyfall, because they gave it a chance because it was Mendes's direction that made them see the movie.


After Bond 24 & 25 things will get stangant again. The only thing you can do it go bigger in a cinematic sense, Nolan does big.

Re: Will Christopher Nolan direct Bond 26?

Yes, I remember all the rabid Mendes fanboys trumpeting Mendes' events like Away We Go and Jarhead.

Mendes is a gifted working director, and a more diverse one than Nolan, honestly. Nolan is some sort of cottage industry who makes not movies, but Christopher Nolan Films. If you can't acknowledge that much then I can't convince you.

Re: Will Christopher Nolan direct Bond 26?

I hear what your saying. Most directors think in One dimentional terms. Guys like Nolan and Alfonso Cuarón think in Multi Dimentional senses. However I think like what he did on Dark Knight Rises he can replicate the scale an action to the Bond franchise. I think a Nolan directed Bond would be a materpiece, I would welcome him.

Re: Will Christopher Nolan direct Bond 26?

To me the Nolan/Bond comparison point is INCEPTION (even though he sort of stole the WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH reveal for TDKR. I think that in much the same way actors can become too "visible" to play Bond (this is why Hugh Jackman and Mel Gibson wouldn't have worked, and why Fassbender won't work), directors certainly can become too "visible" for the franchise. Eon isn't interested in making a Tarantino film, or a Spielberg film, and though I'm not equating Nolan with those guys in terms of talent, in terms of recognition he's the equivalent for his generation of directors.

Re: Will Christopher Nolan direct Bond 26?

What are the chances of Nolan directing Bond, do you think?

If he did do it, I think he would want to do a trilogy and cast his own lead.

I think, myself, that we've seen his style done already with Mendes.

My Top 10 Bonds: Octopussy, Goldeneye, From Russia With Love, Tomorrow Never Dies, Licence to Kill, For Your Eyes Only, The Living Daylights, Moonraker, Goldfinger and The Spy Who Loved Me.

I believe there's an element of truth in what your saying here.
Both Mendes and Nolan have made some great films.

Editor lee smith who edited specte also worked on The Dark Knight, Dunkirk, Intersellar & Inception.
So id agree Spectre may be similar in length and pacing to some of these titles.

Hoyte van hoytema was the cinematographer for spectre, dunkirk and intersellar.

The footage shown for bond 25 so far has some beautiful blues and yellows like roger deakins in skyfall.
Linus sandgrens work on lala land is very colourful also and his work on first man makes it look of epic scale just like the brief showing of the helicopter and sunset in bond 25.

Whats been seen in the 1 minute clip looks promising.

I think the neggers are gunna eat there hats when bond 25 hits theaters.

34

Re: Will Christopher Nolan direct Bond 26?

I think if Nolan ever makes a Bond movie it's most likely Bond26 (and possibly  trillogy), because he wants to doa a reboot. If he does a trillogy I guess his opinion will be important when casting the new Bond, but I can't believe eill let him decide on his own.

Re: Will Christopher Nolan direct Bond 26?

Since this topic has nothing to do with SPECTRE and everything to do with the future of Bond, I'm moving it to the appropriate forum.  Carry on!

Yes he is. The movie is named Tenet and is going to be released July 17th, 2020.

Some people would complain even if you hang them with a new rope

Re: Will Christopher Nolan direct Bond 26?

I wonder if the script for Tenet was what Nolan proposed for Bond 25. Maybe we'll get two versions of Bond 25, the official and the unofficial.

Re: Will Christopher Nolan direct Bond 26?

I think it would be brilliant if Nolan made some bond films that were period pieces, set in the 50's/60's, getting in as many unused Fleming material as possible.

Re: Will Christopher Nolan direct Bond 26?

I hope so but I don't want him to direct one movie but rather a few. The franchise needs safe hands to guide it into the future and he'd be fantastic for it.
