‘Skyfall’, directed by Sam Mendes, is already breaking records set by previous James Bond films.  After opening with an astounding international figure, it is now $708 million globally and could very easily break the $1 billion global mark.

So what would the series have looked like if Steven Spielberg had ever gotten a chance to direct the movies?  While promoting Lincoln, Spielberg was asked if he would be interested [via Worst Previews] in directing a James Bond film in the future, and he replied, "I went to producer [Cubby Broccoli] and I asked if I could do [a James Bond film] and he said, 'No.' I've never asked again. Instead, I made the 'Indiana Jones' series."
 
He also spoke about ‘Skyfall’, saying, “I've seen it once and I'll see it a second time.”  It’s clear that he’s a big fan of the franchise, which makes it doubly odd that he never got a chance to direct even one film.  He doesn’t elaborate on what reasons Broccoli gave for turning him down, and it’s hard to imagine any reasons why he would not make a terrific Bond film. Of course, he went on to make the Indiana Jones series so it worked out just fine for him.

However, he doesn’t deny that he wouldn’t do a Bond film in the future, just that he hasn’t asked again.  Here’s hoping that the producers change their minds.
