    No mention of Craig yet but he'll be doing it. I'm pretty sure of it.

    Spectre was shite and Skyfall wasn't much better. Not seen Kingsman but hear it's essentially a proper modern Bond. Even Mission Impossible's last two outings are better.

    Casino Royale is the only Craig one worth watching.

    Yeah, for me everything after Casino Royale has been chuff.

    Pretty much like how every Pierce Bond film after Goldeneye sucked.

    Maybe they should just hire Martin Campbell again.

    They won't but I would like to see them lighten the tone and bring the fun back into it. Something along the lines of The Spy Who Loved me.

    They've hit box office gold with these films so I doubt they'll change it too much.

    What would I like to see? Nolan directing, Craig back as Bond and Christian Bale as Scaramanga.

    Kingsman didn't feel like Bond to me really.

    Nolan's cold film style might suit Bond.

    I know right, it was a Bond parody at best, not in any way a proper Bond film.

    Kingsman was alright, though a bit overrated I think. And I guess it's sort of similar to some of the winking Roger Moore Bond films, but calling it a "Bond film" is still quite a stretch.

    Nolan was asked during a Dunkirk press junket if he's interested in Bond and has he spoken to them about doing it - he responded with a delightfully English version of "No comment", which basically means it's in the bag.

    Can't see Nolan wanting to continue someone else's story though, so could see him doing a full reboot....which is something he's had a smidgin' of success with in the past.

    Also, if Nolan is doing it, expect Tom Hardy to be Bond, Cillian Murphy to be Q and Michael Caine to be M.

    Isn't that exactly what they tried to do with Spectre by adding outrageously unrealistic action sequences and little slapstick stuff (couch scene)?

    I much prefer the tone of Casino Royale (which still had both to much lesser extent but it didn't make me roll my eyes in disgust every few minutes while trying very hard to suspend disbelief).

    And just to hop on that bandwagon - loved Royale, but didn't think QoS was that bad - still watching it now and then and am reasonably entertained.

    Skyfall was good until the Home Alone sequence, and Spectre was a massive disappointment on all fronts and made me regret paying for those cinema tickets.

    My opinion is definitely the best of all the opinions.

    So apparently I opened a can of worms with the Kingsman comment. It's just what I got told by a bloke, honest guv!

    Not sure how I'd feel about Nolan doing a Bond. I like some of his films but they are far too long and full of plot holes or self-importance. Dark Knight and Memento are the only ones I can stomach.

    What I want Bond to have is
    - a bloke in his mid 30s-40s being a spy who wears a suit
    - a villain that's played by an established actor who is a dastardly sod
    - a few mental action sequences
    - a song that's not fucking shit
    - self-aware but not tongue in cheek.

    The sweet spot for me is Goldeneye, the first five Connerys and most of Casino Royale.

    I donít think Nolan is right for Bond. I like the idea of giving the franchise to a series of high profile British directors like Mendes that can really do something meaningful with it, but Nolan takes himself too seriously and his films massively lack heart.

    I think Guy Ritchie would be a decent shout. Sherlock Holmes showed he can do a fun action flick and thereís a decent amount of style to his films. Paul Greengrass would be a safe pair of hands. Danny Boyle or even Edgar Wright would be interesting left field choices.

    Eurgh anyone but Richie. He's so so bad. I'm just tensing up for all the shit, slo mo and cockerney accents he'd add in. His last two films have been pretty tripe, there is no way he would ever get the Bond job.

    Matt Reeves - recent Apes movies
    Edgar Wright
    Pete Travis - Dredd and the recent tv show Fearless
    Gareth Evans - The Raid

    I would accept Nolan directing action sequences but he can't be allowed to script the thing and it also can't be longer than 2 hours. All the above have the chops.

    I have no interest in Nolan doing more franchises, especially ones around for decades that are doing ok. If it had been completely run into the ground then maybe.

    There are plenty of good directors out there that could put their own stamp on it and do something interesting with it.

    I suspect Nolan wouldn't want anything to do with Bond either.

    This forum amazes me sometimes.

    How any person, who likes or understands film, wouldn't want Nolan to direct a Bond movie is completely beyond my logical understanding of how the human brain works......absolutely does not compute.

    Everyone has their own idea of what they expect/want Bond to be, hence people suggesting various directors.

    Guy Ritchie though :|

    I was with you up until Guy Richie

    Simply based on the first Sherlock Holmes being a fun action romp that didn't take itself too seriously. If people want Bond to be more like Kingsman I think Ritchie could work.

    If on the other hand people want Bond to be a 3 hour film that constantly changes aspect ratio, is utterly devoid of joy and has a final act that makes no sense whatsoever, then Nolan is bang on.

    I have to admit I don't get that joke. Why Aladdin?

    Edit: Googled it, not actually a joke. I'm sure it'll be fine but it's not the first name I'd have picked for Aladdin :p

    The odds are quite high that it's happening, so I'll look forward to that with the rest of the world.

    You can continue to wish for your Guy Ritchie Bond movie if you like.....
