Mendes will direct another Bond film: Broccoli

March 26th, 2013 by Marc Comments

James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have said they hope to have Sam Mendes back in the directing chair for a future 007 adventure.

Their comments come after the Skyfall director said he would not be returning to the franchise for Bond 24.

Broccolo said: “We will get him back. We haven’t given up hope… Maybe not for the next one… but we will get him back again.”

“We are working on him,” Wilson added. “We hope that maybe he will have gotten inspired to come back.”

Skyfall earned an impressive $1.108 billion at the worldwide box office and was critically acclaimed.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
