The Dark Knight trilogy has made Christopher Nolan one of the most sought after directors in the world and he has now been linked to a future James Bond movie. Chris Corbould worked on the special effects for The Dark Knight Rises and the latest Bond movie Skyfall and believes that Nolan would do a great job on James Bond.
Talking to Digital Spy, Corbould explained, “Chris [Nolan] is a great fan of Bond films. We spend a lot of time analysing them, him interrogating me on why things were done in certain Bond films. I've done 13 Bonds, so I've got quite a history with them.”
He added, “I think he likes the way they're made, some better than others. The end part of the third act in Inception was his little homage to Bond. I would love to see him do one. I think he would make an extraordinary Bond. Having seen Skyfall, that's a tough act to follow.”
Christopher Nolan has even hinted that he could be tempted to direct a Bond movie in the future, saying, “That's very, very flattering. But I haven't figured out what I'm doing next,” adding, “It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things.”
