Can we finally give Tarantino a shot at one of these?

Didn't Spielberg always want to direct a Bond film?  See if he's interested.

Told you bastards not to trust the Daily Fail.

Spielberg might work. He probably would have been unsuitable today if they were still making Bond films like they did in the past, but with Daniel Craig it might appeal more to his sensibilities. He doesn't have his protagonists kill bad guys anymore unless it's a film like Munich where it has consequences on Bana's character. The whole introspective aspect of Fleming's Bond being an efficient killer and at the same time hating that part of himself would probably be something he'd love to jump on.

And it would be really cool to hear John Williams do his own Bond score. I doubt any of that would happen, but one can dream.

Lena Dunham.

Matthew Vaughn? He seems like the obvious choice, after Layer Cake.

post #10 of 73

Betcha they approach Affleck for the gig.

post #11 of 73

Aren't they generally trying to stick with British directors for the series?  Well, there was Tamahori and Forster, but they both yielded disastrous results.  Oh, and some guy from New Zealand named Martin Campbell.  Okay, British Colonial directors.

 

If they go British, I'm guessing Joe Wright, because of his arthouse/prestige efforts and Hanna

There's no one who would be more perfect than Joe Wright, only Danny Boyle perhaps but he's already said he's not going to do it.

What if they hire an American director but he has to use a British accent on set?

If we get Affleck, I want modern Affleck, not Shakespeare In Love Affleck.

Those were my joke choices but you never know, he's been pretty successful with the Sherlock films.

 

My fan casting choice would be Nicolas Winding Refn, but that would never happen.

post #20 of 73

Just keep Roger Deakins, please!

post #21 of 73

Boyle of the Brittish crop would be my choice but Affleck could have fun with it

Fuck it. JJ Abrams.
post #24 of 73

We'll probably get Tom Hooper for Bond 24.  You watch.

post #25 of 73

I'm curious as to what a David Fincher directed Bond would be like, especially since he worked with Craig on TGWTDT. Would his dark and extremely idiosyncratic style mesh well with the Bond world? I'm not sure, but it would definitely be intriguing.

post #26 of 73

Recognizable director name.

Way overrated. And his action scenes are way too jerky.

 

A better choice would be Unexpected Indie Director Who's Only Ever Directed One Movie. He might provide a fresh perspective on the character.

Fuck.  You win the Guy name game.

post #31 of 73

As he's done two of the Best bonds, bring back Martin Campbell. And sure, keep Roger Deakins.

I think you need to keep in mind Washed Up Hack Who Made One Good Movie Thirty Years Ago. Hack's Good Movie was really well done, and showed he can do a Bond film.

I thought Renn said Joel Shumacher?

post #34 of 73

Hey, Kevin Smith's not doing much...

post #35 of 73

Joe Wright for another good looking Bond. Vaughan for a workmanlike but serviceable Bond. Joe Cornish for Idris Elba's first Bond. Paul W S Anderson (he's English) for "Milla Jovovich....is Janine Bond".

 

Affleck for the next Bourne.

post #36 of 73
Big sigh of relief here. I've written on the Best of Bond thread about my reasoning, but long story short, I really didn't want to see him back for Bond 24. Hopefully this is a signal Matthew Vaughn might be moving on the project.

Idris Elba is taking 2013 off from movies to work on his music career.

They should just reboot again with Alfonso Cuaron directing and Clive Owen as 007. Otherwise Kathryn Bigelow or Paul Greengrass.

post #40 of 73

Nolan or Vaughan.

 

I would love to see Joss Whedon direct a Bond movie.

Brilliant response, although sadly it does beat trying to say a billion dollar franchise that's lasted for fifty years "sucked" before this movie came along. Well played!

Ugh...I loathe to imagine a Bond film full of exaggerated close-ups & pointlessly lengthy steady cam shots.

I don't particularly care that Mendes is gone, because there are any number of directors out there who could do the franchise justice, but I do think it's silly to "breathe a sigh of relief" that the guy who made one of the best, if not the best Bond film in years is gone.  Maybe you like Bond to be cheesy and formulaic, if so, more power to you. Skyfall actually left the door open to return to that more classic Bond formula if the producers so choose, so maybe you'll get your wish and the series will become mostly awful again.

post #45 of 73

Alfonso Cuaron has already done one tentpole franchise sequel & he'd be stellar.

If not him, maybe the new M could pull in his old Constant Gardener director, Fernando Meirelles?

And, thinking of it now, it's a shame that Tony Scott never helmed a Bond.

post #46 of 73

A Meirelles Bond set in Rio with a foot chase through the slums would be excellent.

He's getting up in age and probably wouldn't do it but I would love to see a Friedkin Bond.

Goddamn, yes.

 

 

(but for now, I'd really like to see what Matthew Vaughn could do - and keep Roger Deakins)

More to the point, I want the next one's villain to be... Ralph Fiennes. Yeah, M. A big storyline about how he's a member of QUANTUM who pulled all the strings and is now in control on both sides of the law. Bond'll go rogue, which you just know he'd have to do anyway, and Moneypenny and Q will have stuff to do. Maybe the one after next, so the audiences can think everything is status quo before having the rug pulled out from under them, but I really want an evil M.

NOOOOOOO! Someone send Elba copies of Bruno's album stat!
