James Bond will return to US cinemas on November 8, 2019, but who will be the director?


Ok, that's fine, but will it work? So far Daniel Craig has been in 2 classic Bonds ("Casino Royale," "Skyfall") and two mediocre ("Spectre," "Quantum of Solace"). Who's gonna be the next director? That's what I want to know. The odds-on favorites at the moment seem to be: Danny Boyle, Edgar Wright, Christopher Nolan and Paul McGuigan, but I wouldn't be surprised if somebody else sneaks in and takes the job. Nolan has been clear about his enthusiasm for Bond, but would he actually do it? The films have always followed a clear cut narrative path with no room for creative freedom, something Nolan has been adamant of for a decade now. He calls the shots, with Bond he might not be able to.
