Whereas we all know Daniel Craig will be back for the following James Bond film, the challenge remains to be searching for a director. One main title has eliminated himself from the working, however would Denis Villeneuve ever direct a Bond film? The director of Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, has stated that his present challenge, Dune would make directing the 25th James Bond movie unattainable, nonetheless, he is open to directing a Bond film after that if the schedule permits. In keeping with Villeneuve…
I’d like to. I stated to Barbara [Broccoli], I’d like to work with you and with Daniel, however I am engaged. [Laughs] I’ll like to do it, truthfully. I am a spoiled filmmaker proper now.
When Denis Villeneuve says he is spoiled, he is not kidding. Following excessive profile success on Sicario, the director went on the well-regarded Arrival. Since then he is change into one of the in-demand filmmakers round, being handed the reins to not solely the Blade Runner franchise, but additionally the lengthy in growth hell remake of Dune. It isn’t surprising that the individuals behind James Bond can be occupied with him as properly. It is also not surprising that he is too busy to do it.
Nonetheless, when requested by ScreenCrush if he can be prepared to make the following James Bond film after the one which’s at present deliberate, Denis Villeneuve says he’d completely have an interest. We’re guessing Ion Productions and Barbara Broccoli would nonetheless like to have him. The one issues that may doubtless stand in the way in which of that may be seeing Villeneuve get dedicated to another challenge, or maybe seeing whoever does get the Bond 25 job knock it out of the park, after which get introduced again for the following movie.
In fact, the one drawback with Denis Villeneuve’s need to work with Daniel Craig on a James Bond film is that if he would not direct Bond 25, there is a good likelihood he’ll by no means have the chance. Craig is barely confirmed to return for this one Bond film, and each indication at present is that this might be Craig’s final go-round with the character. If Villeneuve does direct Bond 26 it could very properly be with a model new Bond.
Again when Denis Villeneuve’s title was first connected to Bond 25 there have been two different administrators on the identical quick listing, Yann Demange and David Mackenzie. With Villeneuve out of the working, although seemingly completely thought of, it might lend credence to the concept that considered one of these two could be who the manufacturing will now look to for its new director.
Bond 25 has a while to discover a director, whereas the film already has a set launch date, it isn’t till November of 2019, which implies the film doubtless will not want to start out filming till someday late this yr.
