Roland Emmerich wants to helm a James Bond movie

September 11th, 2013 by bash Comments

Roland Emmerich has said he’d be interested in directing a future James Bond film.

In an interview with Yahoo Movies, the director denied previous rumours he’d been approached for Die Another Day in 2002, but said he’d be up for the job now: “Especially after the last one [‘Skyfall’],” he said, “because they’ve finally have the guts to go in different moods.”

He continued: “I think [directing] a classic Bond film, no. But if they would let me do my Bond film the same way they let English director Sam Mendes do his Bond film, then that’d be interesting. Have a word with Barbara Broccoli when you get back.”

Emmerich’s latest film is White House Down.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
