BREAKING NEWS: Sam Mendes says no to directing Bond 24…

Despite all the positive reviews of “Skyfall” and the huge box office numbers, Sam Mendes says no to directing Bond 24, due to other commitments. He is scheduled to direct, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, and “King Lear” films, and his focus on those two movies. Shame, I was hoping he would give Bond another shot, ’cause “Skyfall”, was a pretty amazing flick and it is indeed, the best Bond film ever made, in my opinion.

I almost bought “Skyfall” on BluRay yesterday, but ended up getting the new “Tomb Raider” game instead.

I don’t think other directors will make a good Bond film after this one, though. They will go downhill again.

See the director’s statement, here.

  1. Great blog! Consider yourself followed! Didn’t know that Mendes had turned Bond down, certainly a shame, he gave something different to the franchise, hopefully they’ll make another bold choice next time around
