Not So Fast Sam Mendes! Another Director Enters The BOND 24 Mix
Although Deadline made it sound as if Skyfall director Sam Mendes was close to committing to helm the next Bond installment, it seems Headhunters director Morten Tyldum has also been approached by the producers. Read on for more..
We already know there are quite a few names in the mix to helm the next Bond flick (previous director Sam Mendes among them) but now we can add another one to the hat. According to Norwegian website Comoyo, Headhunters director Morten Tyldum has been approached by the film's producers to see if he might be interested in taking over from Mendes on Bond 24. Here are quotes from Tyldum himself:
"I can confirm that I've had a meeting with Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson. They are fans of Headhunters, and wanted to know if I'm available at the moment. They also wanted me to read a script."
That last part obviously suggests that a script is completed, at least a full draft. Headhunters is a pretty damn great little movie and if you haven't seen it I urge you to track it down -- for those that have watched it already, what would you think of Tyldum for Bond 24?
