My opinion on bond 25.
Sam Mendes, the Director of both Spectre and Skyfall has said he is done, and Daniel Craig is still unsure if he wants to reprise the role.
The return of Craig.
I feel the best way for Bond to continue is with Daniel Craig. Spectre may be a really nice film but I think Craig needs to end his Legacy on something a bit more complete.
Sam Mendes has done two really good Bond movies that are very well directed and are visually stunning. Both may not be on the same level with story, but Spectre does have it's moments of wonderful storytelling. But I do think some fresh skin would be nice in the director's role.
My suggestion would be one that has already been in talks of directing a Bond movie, Christopher Nolan. He is my favorite director of all time, and he hasn't made a bad film. In fact I think his greatest film to date was his last. But that is for another conversation... More importantly, why should Nolan do it?
Well, I think he already has done it. He has done an incredible heist film with big unique ideas (inception). He has worked with human characters and made them interesting (memento). He has managed to keep studio heads happy while being a creative genius and maintaining a huge franchise, (the dark knight trilogy). And he has shown that he can create a beautiful, emotional, and riveting experience while still maintaining enormous spectacle.
All he has to do now is add James Bond on top of that. He has also shown immense interest in doing it too. With Nolan's fresh vision and Craig's amazing portrayal of the character I think Daniel Craig can still leave with a bang. Also James Bond would be shot in IMAX! Who wouldn't see that!
No seriously, who wouldn't?
