Christopher Nolan finally answers the rumour that he's directing the next James Bond movie

It's been a longstanding dream of Bond fanboys and galoregirls for the better part of a decade. The dream to wake up one day and find out that Christopher Nolan is directing the next James Bond film.

The director, who's currently the toast of the town after his World War II film, Dunkirk has been sweeping nominations this award season. He recently sat down with Desert Island Discs to answer a few burning questions.

The Interstellar director, 47, was asked if he would be directing the next James Bond film and the answer was pretty emphatic.

"I won’t be the man, no, no."

But no need to tear up just yet, the director added that while he may not be directing the next Bond film, set for release in November 2019, he's not averse to one day telling the superspy exactly where to put his martinis.

"I would love to make a Bond film at some point. I think those producers Barbara and Michael do a tremendous job and so has Sam Mendes," he said. "I have always been very inspired by the films."

If Nolan does decide to direct a James Bond film soon he may find himself working with a new James Bond. Daniel Craig is set to hang up his tux after the 2019 film, and there's no hint at who could replace him.

Craig's wife, Rachel Weisz, however, threw some cold water on the hope that we'd soon be seeing a female Bond, a Jane Biond as it were.

The actress said in an interview: “[Fleming] devoted an awful lot of time to writing this particular character, who is particularly male and relates in a particular way to women. 

“Why not create your own story rather than jumping on to the shoulders and being compared to all those other male predecessors?

“Women are really fascinating and interesting and should get their own stories.”
