Christopher Nolan, the director of The Dark Knight trilogy, Inception (2010), and Dunkirk (2017), has been talking to 007 producers to direct the new James Bond film.

"I've spoken to the producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson over the years," Nolan told Playboy.

He added: "I deeply love the character, and I'm always excited to see what they do with it. Maybe one day that would work out.” But, however: “You'd have to be needed, if you know what I mean. It has to need reinvention; it has to need you. And they're getting along very well.”

Rumours that Nolan would be directing the 25th Bond film first began when his company Syncopy was listed as a producer on IMDB Pro.

Daniel Craig, meanwhile, might be returning for a fifth outing in the series. He had previously said he “hated” working on the series, and would rather “slash his wrists” than give the films another go.

Craig last appeared in 2015’s Spectre, directed by Sam Mendes; Mendes also helmed 2012’s Skyfall.

Nolan's new film Dunkirk debuts soon. Though hardly soon enough.
