Who Should Direct James Bond 24?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Since it was announced that Sam Mendes won't direct the next James Bond movie, rumors have swirled as to who will fill the director's chair. As we stated in our Skyfall review, Mendes did about as fantastic a job as one can do. He brought an Oscar-winning power to the franchise and the result was the most successful 007 movie of all-time.

Daniel Craig Skyfall

Given the success of Skyfall, including its first Oscar victory for Best Song, the producers behind the series could have their pick of the director litter if they so choose. Personally, Movie Fanatic would love to see Danny Boyle tackle it. After working closely with the producing family who has been behind all 23 Bond movies for the opening sequence to the Olympics, we think he's a perfect fit -- not to mention his natural talent for the job.

But, there are many that could fill Mendes' shoes as Bond aims for release by 2016. Also... Does the helmer have to be British? Let us know in the poll below who you would like to see helm James Bond 24.

James Bond Quotes

We must have a few fast falls together some time.

Miss Moneypenny: James! Where have you been? I've been searching all over London for you.
Miss Moneypenny: 007 is here sir.
James Bond: Moneypenny! What gives?
Miss Moneypenny: Me, given an ounce of encouragement. You've never taken me to dinner looking like this. You've never taken me to dinner...
James Bond: I would, you know. Only "M" would have me court-martialed for... illegal use of government property.
Miss Moneypenny: Flattery will get you nowhere - but don't stop trying.
