The director has poured cold water on rumours that he is next in line to direct the spy movie
Chirstopher Nolan may have expressed his love for James Bond films with producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson but the director has poured cold water on rumours that he is next in line to direct the spy movie. The Dunkirk helmer, however, said he would love to direct one of the Bond films in future.
Nolan told BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs: "I won't be the man (to direct the next Bond). No, categorically. I think every time they hire a new director I'm rumoured to be doing it.
"I'd love to make a Bond film at some point and I think those producers - Barbara and Michael - they do a tremendous job and Sam Mendes has done a terrific job the last couple of films, so they don't particularly need me. But I've always been inspired by the films and would love to do one someday."
