Would you want to see a Bond movie by Villeneuve?
As Daniel Craig's Bond series ends, the franchise is opening its doors to see who should play the next iteration of the character, and also who should direct the next one. While many people have voiced ideas about who should take on each mantle, the latest person to throw their own hat into the ring is Denis Villeneuve.
On MTV’s “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, Villeneuve was asked if he wanted to make a Bond movie. He said, “Frankly, the answer would be a massive yes.”
Villeneuve went on to talk about the magnitude of making a Bond movie and how much he cares about the character.
“I would deeply love one day to make a James Bond movie. It’s a character that I’ve been with since my childhood. I have massive affection for Bond. It would be a big challenge to try and reboot it after what Daniel did. What Daniel Craig brought to Bond was so unique and strong and honestly unmatchable. He’s the ultimate James Bond. I can’t wait to see Cary’s movie. I’m very excited. I’m one of the biggest Bond fans.”
That's certainly a huge director with a keen eye who wants to take on a project like this, but there will definitely be some competition.
What are your feelings on this? Would you welcome Villeneuve or do you want them to go in a radically different direction?
