Not too long ago Skyfall director Sam Mendes made it clear that he wasn’t going to direct the next Bond, despite enjoying his time on Skyfall and despite the studios wanting him back in the chair for another go.
Then, names like Nicolas Winding Refn, David Yates, Shane Black and even Ang Lee were thrown around as possible contenders to takeover the franchise.
Now, it looks like Mendes is currently negotiating to come back after all.
I’m not sure if the promise of a big fat paycheck changed his mind or if he honestly had a change of heart.
I liked Skyfall, but I didn’t love it as much as many others.
Are you excited to see Mendes back for Bond 24?
