I don't really see what's in it for Nolan other than fanboyishly saying "I got to make a James Bond". He's already done exceptional "Bond-y" scenes in Batman and Inception, and I would have thought that being bound by such a tight, controlling franchise wouldn't be up his alley anymore.
But - hey! - he's a great director so it'd be cool and all.

I'm not all that interested in seeing Nolan make Bond. This might be controversial but I don't think his action set pieces are all that good in general, and his most "Bond" film, Tenet, was utterly shit.
I'd prefer Vaughn as a director. Whilst he has made Bond spoofs it doesn't necessarily mean these would be the same time. His first film was Layer Cake which was fairly gritty and dry (and was one of the films that made everyone consider Craig as Bond).
Vaughn's next film is Argyle though which is another spy thriller that I know nothing about, but at the least sounds less outright comedic than the Kingsmen films, so not sure how keen he'd be to helm that many spy adventures.
I've never heard of the original source so it's probably BS.
Anyhow, License to Kill is one of the best Bond films ever made.
The Living Daylights is the best Bond film, its pretty much perfect bond.
Anyway still hoping Dan Stevens gets the gig
Dan Stevens so hot right now
I've still got a £5 bet at some bookie somewhere at 500/1 on Tom Felton which I put on over 10 years ago (or whenever the last Harry Potter film was). I can't remember who the bookie was but I think that won't really matter...
I saw this Twitter post a year ago where someone pointed out that you've had an actor who's played Bond once, one who's played Bond twice, etc, all the way up to Moore playing Bond seven times.
Except no one's ever played Bond three times and three times only.
This guy proposed that you cast someone specifically to make a trilogy of Bond films and then that's it, right from the off you're open about it only being three films with an interconnected story, and then you're done.
I really like that approach and if Nolan or whoever is gonna take it on, then I think that's what they should do. Plus you get to complete a weird pyramid of Bond actors.
Plus there’s already music out there that’ll fit with just a couple of word changes for the theme. Jennifer Hudson can even reprise it.
You've got three times only, three times only That's all you have to spare Three times only Let's not pretend to care Three times only, three times only Come on, Bond baby, come on Three times only We only have 'til dawn
Actually we’ve pretty much got this. Let’s film it ourselves.
Dry your eyes, James I know it's hard to take, but her head has been shot off There's plenty more fish in the sea Dry your eyes, James I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts But you've got to walk away now, it's over
EMarkM: Will there ever be a boy born who can swim faster than a shark?

vicedestroyer: I guess, once the world does its best Waterworld impression, it will be survival of the fittest. Either the boy swims fast or becomes shark tucker.

zagibu: Sharks not only swim fast, they also swim silent. Their scales are called dermal denticles, and they create local swirls around them which reduce the shark's overall drag in water.

zagibu: So even if a boy could swim as fast as a shark, he wouldn't hear them coming.
