Christopher Nolan to direct two James Bond movies, says an insider
There’s been a lot of quiet within the realm of Bond. Because of the continuing Writers Guild of America (WGA) as well as Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) strikes, the production of a majority of Hollywood productions has come to a stop. This is not just that of the James Bond franchise.
Daniel Craig retired from the part in 2021 following the announcement of The Last Time to Die. It is likely that prior to when the WGA strike and the SAG-AFTRA union in place, Bond producers were busy preparing their search for a casting director to find the next 007.
The current situation doesn’t allow this search to be continued as of yet, however we know some names who have been placed into the mix. Idris Elba is the main leader with regard to the fan’s choice however the actor does not seem to be enthusiastic about the idea. There is also speculation there is a possibility that Aaron Taylor Johnson has been in discussions to producers.
Although we don’t exactly who is going to play Bond in the future, a source has a claim to know who is going to be taking over as director for the next installment of the franchise instalments.As reported by the film the insider World of Reel ( via Dexerto), Christopher Nolan could lead the upcoming two Bond installments.
According to the insider Bond director Barbara Broccoli is keen to have Nolan involved, noting that she had begun talking with Nolan about the possibility of a collaboration before the WGA strike as well as the Oppenheimerpress Tour started off.
A source inside the film said Nolan desires creative autonomy in the direction of the film as well as the script, and this has caused some friction with Broccoli. Discussions will come to a halt, however, because when the director’s guild isn’t in a strike, Nolan would not currently be allowed to talk about any possible writing assignments. World of Reel wrote that Broccoli “rarely grants permission to filmmakers from her company as there is usually an outline of the making of the perfect Bond movie.” But it is possible to make the film being composed or directed by Nolan should not be taken lightly.
Nolan is, naturally the creator of a number of hit films which include Oppenheimer, Dunkirk, The Dark Knight, Tenet and The Inception. An influx of fresh blood might be exactly the thing that this franchise is in need of. In the meantime, consider these speculations with a grain of salt.
