Christopher Nolan “seriously” wants to direct a James Bond movie

Christopher Nolan

Posted by on

Christopher Nolan has an idea of the film he wants to make now that he’s done with his “Batman” trilogy. He just probably won’t get to make it until a few more years down the road.

In an interview with Empire, excerpted by The Playlist, Nolan talked about the movies he’d like to make in the future, and the main one he mentioned was James Bond. Considering his films like “Batman Begins” and “Inception” were heavily influenced by the 007 franchise, it doesn’t some as any surprise that he’d like to try his hand at the series.

“It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things,” he said during the interview.

That sounds a lot to us like he’d like to make a James Bond film one day… just not right now. Does Nolan have something against Daniel Craig? Doubtful, he just probably wants to have his own say in the style of his 007 movie.

So hopefully what he’s really saying is that he’d love to direct the film that launches the Bond franchise into its sixth iteration. So far the movies have starred Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Craig, and each of their versions had decidedly different tones. George Lazenby also starred as James Bond once in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” but he wasn’t around long enough to make a big enough mark on the franchise.

We’re guessing Craig probably has a couple more Bond movies in him after “Skyfall” hits theaters November 9, so Nolan’s potential takeover of the franchise won’t happen for a while. But consider he’s the king of cool right, we cannot wait for the day where he finally has a director’s credit on a Bond flick.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
