possibly with Christopher Nolan?  In a way that excites me, but then again I was kinda let down by The Dark Knight Rises.  Still, it's only one black mark against him, and to think he could do the Bond equivalent of The Dark Knight.

If The Dark Knight Rises is a "black mark" on Nolan's career, then even his worst surpasses many of Hollywood's best.  I'm more than just a little excited for his potential involvement in the Bond franchise.  Any time I see his name attached to a project, whether it be as director, producer, or even simply a fan, I'm always in without any further consideration.

Im a big fan of Nolan, so yeah I hope they get him for this.  As far as The Dark Knight Rises, I felt that it was pretty good.  Unfortunately it had the curse of trying to live up to the level established by The Dark Knight.  That was just too high of a bar for it to clear.

I won't argue with you there, as bad as I felt the film was it was still levels above a lot of other films.

back to the search for the next director, Sam Mendes is back in the talks and looks likely to return.

just a thought:  since this is #24 they should figure out a way to work Kiefer Sutherland into the mix, maybe make him the latest Felix Leiter....

[edit] got it wrong- Leiter, not Wright, Wright was the guy who played Leiter most recently.

I thought The Dark Knight Rises was excellent,but to each his own

I would like Bond to start having a regular director again like in the 60s and 70s with Terence Young or Guy Hamilton ....i would even love to see Martin Campbell come back on as director after he did the two Bond Restarts(Goldeneye and Casino Royale),but Green Lantern seems to of put him on ice


Anyway,i enjoyed Sam Mendes Skyfall and obviously so did the producers with it being the biggest Bond at the Box Office,so i am happy that Sam Mendes is back in the frame,but i don't agree with that article that says that there is no rush...we just had another long gap before this one with the MGM bollocks going on
With a great Bond actor,i like to get the most out of him,although i think Craig is contracted for 5 Bonds,i wanted him to overtake Moore's Seven before Daniel Craig gets Roger Moores creepy glassy stare..but with the MGM fiasco,it's looking unlikely now

Mendes is officially back:

Quote

    CULVER CITY, Calif., July 11, 2013 – Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, EON Productions; Gary Barber, Chairman & CEO, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer; Michael Lynton, CEO, Sony Entertainment, Inc, and Amy Pascal, Co-Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment today announced that Daniel Craig will once again return as the legendary British secret agent in the 24th James Bond film and Sam Mendes will also return to direct the screenplay written by John Logan. The film is set for release in UK theaters on October 23, 2015 and in US theaters on November 6, 2015.

    SKYFALL™, the 23rd James Bond film, took in $1.1 billion worldwide and set a new mark as the highest-grossing film of all time in the UK; it was the best-selling Bond film on DVD/Blu-ray and was the most critically acclaimed film in the history of the longest-running film franchise.

    Commenting on the announcement, Wilson and Broccoli said, “Following the extraordinary success of SKYFALL, we’re really excited to be working once again with Daniel Craig, Sam Mendes and John Logan.”

    “I am very pleased that by giving me the time I need to honour all my theatre commitments, the producers have made it possible for me to direct Bond 24. I very much look forward to taking up the reins again, and to working with Daniel Craig, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for a second time,” said Mendes.

    Barber added, “We are thrilled to reunite the extraordinary talents of director Sam Mendes with our star Daniel Craig for the next great Bond adventure.” He added, “As evidenced by the phenomenal success of our last collaboration with EON Productions and Sony, the incredible legacy of this 51-year-old franchise continues to amaze.”

    Lynton and Pascal said, “It’s a privilege to work on the Bond films. EON, John Logan and Sam Mendes have come up with an extraordinary follow up to SKYFALL and we, along with our partners at MGM, can’t wait to share this new chapter with audiences all over the world.”

I just watched Skyfall and thought it was great, definitely one of the best Bond movies I've seen.

I also like Nolan, but really I see no reason to change so this is good news.

I am glad,I enjoyed SkyFall,and as i probably said a few times now i prefer it when a director comes back,Bond is littered with 'more than one' directors,from Guy Hamilton(4),Terence Young(3),Lewis Gilbert(3),John Glen(5),Martin Campbell(2),now Sam Mendes(2) can join that bunch

That annoys me a little,its still a few years away and they have the gap like that between US and UK release dates,sure i like UK getting stuff first for once,but not two friggin' weeks before....it's annoying having to wait until you guys have seen it so i can read your thoughts on the film

Yeah. I could understand that a few years ago when the studios sent huge film rolls overseas, but nowadays it's all done digitally. The customers have to wait because of reasons.
