Bond 24 directers you consider. This can be directers, second United Directer or directer of photography

Directer:

Cameron Crowe (Vanilla Sky). American.

Second United Directer:

Jonathan Sanger & Ronan O'Connor. (Vanilla Sky)

Directer of Photopgraphy:

Seamus McGarvey. The cinematopgrapher of ''short'' of International Woman day. Con: Another possible Twine look and that's not what imagine for Bond 24 at the moment. Because Barbara Broccoli, those days producer of the Bond movies ask him for this short, that short possible test or he is good enough for Bond 24.

Roberto Schaefer. QOS and possible first or second choose for Bond 23.

Roger Deakins. The possible second or first choose Bond 23.

Lance Acord. (Lost In translation) American.

John Toll. (Vanilla Sky, The Last Samurai) If we got the directer, second united directer of Vainlla Sky then the directer of photography should be consider too.

    Nolan
    Fincher
    Mann
    Boyle

    Famous names, I know, but people I very much consider suited for the job. Not trying to flirt with hypes here - most of these names were on my list prior to their big BO successes. E.g. I had my eye on Nolan since Insomnia. I had my eye on Boyle before the release of Slumdog. Fincher came on my list with The Game in theatres and as for Mann, well, let's just say HEAT took away whatever doubts I may have had left.

    I'd also add Mendes to the list. If he turns in good directing for Bond 23 I hope he takes up EON's offer to do the next one.

    A Nolan-directed Bond would indeed be wonderful, but I doubt it will happen anytime soon. Maybe ten to fifteen years from now. Meanwhile I'd suggest Neil Marshall and Duncan Jones. Maybe even Matthew Vaughn, since he's worked with Craig on Layer Cake before. Haven't seen Stardust and I am not too keen on Kick-Ass though.

    Not sure about Marshall. The balance is currently not in the man's favour. With The Decent being an excellent horror flick and Dog Soldiers somewhat okay, both Doomsday and Centurion were poor efforts IMO. Marshall has yet to convince me.

    David Slade, on the other hand...

    How about Martin McDonagh ? In Bruges was pretty awesome, and he seem to know how to use a location to its full capacity, and how to properly shoot an action sequence.

    McDonagh would be brilliant. Good call there, DaltonCraig007.

    I also like the idea of Matthew Vaughn, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, or Tom Hooper.

    Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck didn't manage to convince me with The Tourist. Maybe a few more really good, intense films and I jump on the fan wagon. Until then, however, he's a no-no for me.
  • Posts: 562
    I was mainly thinking of his work on The Lives of Others, but I know what you mean.
  • edited April 2011 Posts: 161
    I think von Donnersmarck's career in Hollywood might be over for the time being, after the horrendous The Tourist. For me it's the worst film of the year, closely followed by How Do You Know.
    Das Leben der Anderen however was the best German film in years and I hope he can achieve something close to it in the future.

    @ Dimi: I can understand some of the flack Marshall gets around the Internet, but I rather enjoyed Doomsday. It's one of those trashy, yet highly enjoyable films they seldom make these days. And Rhona Mitra was badass. ;)
    Centurion was certainly nothing special, but has a really distinctive look, one of the aspects why I appreciate Marshall's work. He can really create atmospheric films.
    Have you seen Dog Soldiers? It's my second favorite Marshall film. A really fun film in the Scottish wilderness.
    Edit: ok, you've seen Dog Soldiers, nver mind. ;)

    Quoting haserot: Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games, Clear And Present Danger)
    Didn't he also make the catastrophe that was 'Salt' ?
  • DarthDimiDarthDimi Behind you!
    Posts: 15,902
    Indeed he did. Noyce has a couple of interesting features, PG and CAPD being two of those. I also like Dead Calm and The Saint, though the latter may provoke some heavy criticism at times. Then there's Sliver and Salt, both submerged in a confusing pool of pros and cons. Still, if Noyce gave me the Bondian equivalent of PG, I'd be more than satisfied, I promise. Great thriller! Perhaps it all works fine provided that someone hands Noyce a good script.

    Directer:

    Richard Kwietniowski (Owning Mahowny). English. http://www.sonyclassics.com/owning/core/hasFlash.html Edinburgh International Film Festival 2009 2.08-2.50 / 4.25-4.47 / 5.08 -5.23 / 5.34-6.02


    Owning Mahowny (Sony Pictures) trailer

    http://www.filmfreakcentral.net/notes/rkwietniowskiinterview.htm
    I read that you storyboarded all of the scenes in Owning Mahowny.
    RICHARD KWIETNIOWSKI: Yes, I tend to do that because it helps to clear my thoughts and partly so that I can communicate better with my heads of departments. Instead of trying to describe things in a woolly fashion again and again, I can actually say here's a comic strip version. Once done, it also gives me the confidence to change my mind on the day we're actually filming. My approach to actually filming, though, tends to be brevity. I don't want to show the entrances and exits, I want to start in the middle of the action, in the middle of plot--so it means that I don't do coverage for every scene and so the storyboarding, too, is a case of being very practical in saying, "This short scene is this one shot," and then I can run ahead in the board and see what to set up next. It's a way to help myself and other people that I work with to get inside of my head and to keep things apace.

    Director: Christopher Nolan (I preferred Martin Campbell but he said he won't make another Bond film)
    Writer: Bruce Feirstein (full stop)
    Composer: David Arnold (if he will compose like his old ones: TND and TWINE, 'cause other ones are wicked, specially CR and QoS).
    Stunt Coordinator: Ben Cooke (not Gary Powell)

    That's all I can say.
  • Unfortunately this won't happen, but Martin Campbell. The guy made manorexic Brosnan credibly tougher in GE and has a wonderful classy style that really elevates both GE and CR. In fact, both GE and CR are the Bond films that I think of when I think of the most beautiful cinematography. Campbell's films look beautiful, have great action, nice character moments, elements of timeless class, and he understands that sometimes lack of dialogue is as important as dialogue. After CR came out I said that the best way to make the sequel great was a) call Campbell and ask what it would take for him to direct the next film and b) whatever he says, no matter what, just say yes.

    I don't think we'll ever see a big mainstream name like Nolan as I've constantly heard that there would be too much tension between Wilson and Broccoli and a big-name director about who knows more about making a good Bond film. I don't know if that's true, though.

    I'm also not sure about the idea of hiring "art house" directors for the last few films (TND, TWINE, QOS). I understand the appeal but I'd rather see a competent "action film" director. Good call on Martin McDonagh, though - except that his resume is pretty short so he could be a one-hit wonder.

    Russell Mulchay*
    Ti West**

    * Maybe not a popular choice, but this man helmed The Shadow, and that goes a long way in my book.
    **His attention to period detail in The House Of The Devil was pitch perfect. If there's a 1950's/1060's set Bond film, they should give West a call

    Oscar Winner Danny Boyle Rules Out Directing James Bond Movie

    Boyle ruled himself out during an interview with BBC Radio 4's arts program Front Row.

    The speculation began building after Boyle's Olympics extravaganza that included a film segment where Daniel Craig as 007 met the Queen at Buckingham Palace before a pair of stunt doubles dressed as Bond and the British monarch parachuted into the stadium for the rest of the show.

    Boyle managing to persuade the Queen to appear in the segment was widely regarded as a coup for the Olympics' team and the show itself.

    Responding to a question on the radio show on whether or not he could direct a full-length Bond movie, Boyle replied: "No, I'm not very good with huge amounts of money."

    The filmmaker was talking from the BBC's Salford's MediaCityU.K. complex as he turned on a neon artwork he has designed.

    Front Row asked him to choose a word to be lit in neon on top of the BBC's headquarters with the filmmaker picking the word "wonder" after Isles of Wonder, the title of the Olympic opening ceremony.

    Boyle told interviewer Mark Lawson that his experience of directing The Beach, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, had put him off making movies with big budgets.

    "Don't trust me with huge amounts of money anybody," he said. "I did a film, The Beach, which was a proper Hollywood scale budget and it didn't suit me.

    "Certain people can handle that and I love watching those kinds of films, but I'm much better with a smaller amount of money and trying to make it go a long way," Boyle said.

    Another rumour squashed. Thanks @bondsum.
  • Matthew Vaughn: He makes great stylised movies that would fit with the Bond canon. Also he's really worked his way up, having made ambitious small British movies and graduated to larger more commercial fare. He has an anarchic and irreverent sentimentality that could be just what Bond needs, plus he and Craig worked together in the excellent 'Layer Cake'.

    Joe Wright: My personal choice. He makes really strong movies, not only in crafting beautiful visuals but also telling magnificent stories. He's British and young and having proved his worth with costume spectacle, he went on to make the emotionally gritty and engaging Hanna, one of the best films of last year. He has said in the past that he wants to do a Bond movie, so I hope he is currently chasing the director's chair.

    Tom Hopper: He's British and prestigious. Sam Mendes MkII. I like his operatic quality and the polished visuals he offers, but he may have to drop the fish-eye for 007.
  • @Pierce2Daniel Great suggestions, Wright and Hooper are my top two picks, and it's funny because I also thought that I'd love Tom Hooper, but the fish-eye has to go.

    Its not often I find nothing to complain about in someones post so well done Sir - cant argue with any of these or the return of Mendes.

    The only other one I would throw in is Alfonso Cuaron but I would generally lean towards British, or at least Commonwealth (Tamahori notwithstanding), so that they come from a cultural background that 'gets' Bond.

    I watched the Sherlock box set back to back last week and was quite impressed with the directing in that as well. I certainly wouldnt be devastated if the entire Sherlock team took over - Moffat and Gatiss on writing, Paul Mcguigan directing and David Arnold doing the music. Although for the record, in terms of directing at least, I would certainly go for the 3 you name above first.

    I'd like to see Mendes again, to give the movies a certain sense of continuity. A few years ago I would have said Christian Duguay, who is a competent, little known director, because the movie The Assignment he made back in 1997. But that was a while ago and he might not be getting any younger. Not that it would be a problem should he direct the next Bond movie, but I would like to see a director returning for a few of them. I am dreaming of a new Terence Young.

    I know it will most likely never happen, but Martin Scorsese would be a dream come true.
  • Director: Christopher Nolan

    Drectir of Photography : The one from QOS, he did a really good quality job for his work to make the last half of the film good.
  • Tom Hooper could make an amazing film if it were even more emotionally intimate than SF.
    Danny Cohen (as director of photography) pleeeeeeeease do a Bond film!!!

    Alfonso Cuaron same with his cinematographer!

    Just read an interview in latest issue of Empire magazine with Kenneth Branaugh from the set of the new Jack Ryan movie. He is shooting on the 007 stage at Pinewood and mentions Bond, saying how much he likes Spy Who Loved Me. More convinced than ever he should be on list of future directors.
