Academy Award winning director Tom Hooper has revealed how he would love to eventually direct a superhero movie, as well a James Bond film. Tom claims that he loves the whole concept of building a comic book movie and has always been a huge fan of James Bond.
Speaking to Collider, Hooper stated, “I suppose I’ve always felt like I’ve had a kind of epic filmmaker hidden within me trying to get out, and John Adams was my first opportunity to sort of paint a world on a much bigger canvas which I felt very grateful for. But in the end there is something in a comic book drama that you get to build a world from the ground up and follow a vision through physically, which I think is exciting. I don’t know, we’ll have to see.”
He then spoke of directing Bond, “Oh I’d certainly be willing to talk about it. The 10-year-old in me would think there’s probably no higher honour than talking about that… I think [Bond producers] Barbara Broccoli and Michael [G. Wilson] are making some really interesting choices about who they use at the moment, so I think they’ve reinvigorated that franchise in a brilliant way.”
It is expected that Sam Mendes will return to direct the next James Bond movie and maybe even more after that. There have also been a number of directors admitting that they would love to direct a James Bond film.
