Christoper Nolan not directing James Bond anytime soon

By Scott Mendelson

HollywoodNews.com: The internet is all aflutter today with various posts asking whether or not Chris Nolan will direct a James Bond film in the near-future. No. Heck, considering MGM’s current financial woes, it may be a long time before we see anyone direct a new James Bond picture.

All Chris Nolan has said is that he would like to make a 007 adventure and that “Inception” is partially inspired by “Her Majesty’s Secret Service.” None of this is news. Nolan has expressed his admiration for the series many times over the last decade. Heck, in many ways, the last two-thirds of “Batman Begins” is a Caped Crusader picture filtered through the constructs of a James Bond template (Batman/Alfred/Lucius/Gordon/Rachel = Bond/M/Q/Leiter/Moneypenny).
