BOND 25 pre-release - Page 26
Nolan has the film making chops and can direct actors. Pair him with a strong Assistant Director (NEIL MARSHALL), a good script writer who can channel but not bow down to Ian Fleming, and a strong producer, and we'd see what CHUD's Mr. Saxon would call a "crackerjack Bond film!".
So it's probably all smoke and mirrors but the intensity of the plethora of "Nolan close to signing on for this" rumors has really picked up in the last 48 hours or so.
An announcement concerning the director is supposed to hit in the first few weeks of 2018. Guess we'll know for sure pretty soon, one way or the other.
Of course, now there's a 99% chance we'll get a completely different director and everyone will be disappointed.
It's like you can see into my mind!
