The rumor that the director of Inception and Interstellar could direct the next James Bond has already been circulating for a while. Some sources even specified that this new reboot of the franchise made by Nolan would set the action in the 1950s, at the time of the novels by Ian Fleming, the creator of the character.
Patatras. The director has just unambiguously denied it to the Associated Press agency (video below): “No, no, unfortunately, all these rumors are false”. However, Nolan has never hidden being a big fan of the franchise involving Agent 007, with many of his feature films making clear references or strong nods to the world of the British spy. He even said not so long ago that one day filming a James Bond would be a “privilege”. We therefore still do not know what the next project of the director of Oppenheimer will be, and the producers of Bond who will be the next James Bond after the departure of Daniel Craig (No Time to Die).
