    If you're going to be a troll, then you'll find your time here very short lived.

    Now I wouldn't be getting all up in arms about this little bit of info, if it does happen that Nolan is helming the EON series, then I'll certainly be thinking about it when the offical announcement is made. However, that being said, I wouldn't mind seeing Nolan's take on Bond, my only hope is that he follows the books closely and stays true to the source material (which was something that made his Batman movies so great.) I suppose I could careless about who makes it, just as long as we get a good, solid Bond film. All I want is right there.

    Bond by Nolan:
    James Bond - Tom Hardy (Eames)
    M - Michael Caine
    Q - Cillian Murphy
    Moneypenny - Anne Hathaway
    Blofeld - Tom Hardy (Bane)

    I could see Hardy being a good Savalas-esque Blofeld tbh.

    Hardy playing Bond and Blofeld? Now there, are some family issues.

    May as well go whole hog at that point and make 'em biological bros.

    I could see Nolan trying something like this :P not making them brothers at all but casting the same actor for Bond and Blofeld.
    Not that he's done anything like it before, just doesn't seem too far out of Nolan's style.

    By your user status, maybe you take issue with my thought that Hardy would be a good Blofeld similar to Savalas? Or the just the whole post in general ;P

    Happy 1,000 posts to me!

    Nolan, Hardy (as Bond or Blofeld), and Hathaway. All bad.

    P.S. Congrats on 1,000 posts!

    Yep, IMDB is so inaccurate, as we know all too well.

    Syncopy isn't involved with Bond 25.

    would love to see a stand alone Bond film with Nolan AND Craig. SPECTRE completed the story that started with Casino Royale in a very, very stupid way. Craig deserves a brilliant last film. Nolan can make it.

    Exactly, Eon don't do co-productions with other producers (except on TB when they had to compromise to bring the film into their series). Bond is Eon's show. Big name director's like Sam Mendes don't even get the "A Film by…." credit like they would get on any other film they directed.

    Why not? Got the charisma, physical presence, and a great actor so could adopt the necessary persona. Any moped-stealing Bond-baddie had better watch out

    Honestly I agree 100%. Hardy's one of my favourite actors but I can't see him as Bond. I'd be open minded about it though.

    The mere thought of having another generic, repetitive, industrially-produced, computer-generated and deeply boring Hans Zimmer noise carpet accompanying a Bond movie makes me NOT want Nolan as director. Apart from the fact that I don't see why he's so hyped.

    +1. Just proves the fact that just because one's a good actor, doesn't mean he's qualified immediately for a role.

    He just doesn't have that thing about him. I've had this debate elsewhere recently, and the way I could explain it in my head is that all the Bonds we have look like they'd give a straight and fair fight, whereas Hardy seems like he'd go right for the bullocks. Our 6 Bonds feel like they'd play games for sport at nice casinos or game halls in fine suits, whereas Hardy looks like he'd frequent a dilapidated bar with a pool table in a rough part of London where he'd smashed glasses and stick anyone who bad mouthed him, all while wearing baddy jeans and a torn up jacket.

    He lacks that eloquence and sense of style that all the Bond actors have, with only Tim being an obvious weak link. Sean was the style icon, George had a playboy sense, Roger looked like a government aristocrat, Tim could rock the moody dark suits despite a lack of apparent style, Pierce looked born for suits in many capacities and Dan feels at home in anything they put him in, despite his thug reputation pre-Bond. When I see Hardy, I just don't find he'd pull any of that off. When I think of his wheelhouse, grungy roles come to mind where he's hairy, dirty, bloodied or feral. He's obviously a transformative actor, but I think he's far too rough to be smoothed out into a good Bond. Dan has the roughest looks of all the Bond actors, but he is able to command a certain posture of eloquence and style and his voice also signals a certain propriety and strong character. He makes it easy for you to take the leap and say, "Yes, this can be Bond." Hardy's Bond just seems like he'd be a potty mouth, with his rough accent always saying, "Piss off" or "Let's get knackered" while having a martini at a bar. To borrow a word from Anthony Horowitz, he's very street. More of a Liverpool hooligan than a Savile Row man of high character.

    Nothing wrong with that, as I love him in all kinds of roles. I just don't think Bond is one of those particular parts for his abilities and overall look.

    I have been predicting for some time that Nolan will direct either Bond 25 or Bond 26. Here is why: We all know how much he wants to direct a Bond film. The producers want him. The only issue is that he wants to direct the first Bond film of a new era. EON won't want to wait for another 10-15 years for him, which means he will direct the first movie of the next era. Now the question is: when does the next era start?

    Scenario 1: Craig returns for one more Bond film, EON hires McGuigan or another journeyman to direct, Nolan directs a non-Bond film after Dunkirk. A few years later: Bond 26. Nolan. New actor.

    Scenario 2: Craig decides to quit. Nolan directs Bond 25.

    Maybe Nolan is the third peice of the pie. Young helmed the classic era of Bond, Campvell helmed the Modern era of Bond, now Nolan helms the postmodern era of Bond.

    It does kinda fit together when you think of it like that. We'll have to wait and see, but EON may drop Craig if it means working with Nolan, I'd assume. In the absense of Craig, they need another big name and Nolan immediately excites and would create a big splash for EON. It would certainly help to have him on board for the post-Craig transition.

    I think he's probably ready to kick back a little after INTERSTELLAR and DUNKIRK - He hasn't done anything more mainstream since Batman and Inception. With a penchant for Bond, it wouldn't surprise me if everything came together to make this happen. That being said, it's early days yet.

    Orlando Bloom is just another Hiddy for me, posh boys wanting to be Bond. Hardy is probably too well known now and too high profile to be considered for Bond, alongside Fassbender, who should have been in contention for Casino Royale, not for Bond 25 or 26. I still stand by my belief that EON will not want an established name to takeover from Craig in the same way they didn't want a big name to takeover from Brosnan. He'll be an actor that we've mostly seen on TV or in smaller roles, and he'll probably get a lot of hate, just as Craig did, until we've seen him in the role.

    I don't think some are aware of the loyalty that exists between Barbara and Daniel. Nolan or not, I don't ever see her just dropping him like a sack of potatoes at the first sign of a new direction for the series. She's sweet on him, and they clearly love being collaborators, as they work on the Bond films heavily together, then on projects in between the Bond releases. If Dan were to leave, it would be out of a mutual negotiation for all they'd accomplished for over a decade. Him being pushed out for any reason is inconceivable, as it doesn't befit the relationship he has with Barbara or her character in regards to him. If she could hold on to him forever, she would, and I don't think Michael would ever object to it either.

    The Nolan rumour is actually a very old one - and actually relates to the possibility of him directing Spectre when it looked like Mendes might not do it. He's yet to be rumoured to be directing Bond 25.

    Yes, one of the scenario's will indeed happen. My guess and hope is: scenario 1. I think Nolan wants to be just like Campbell: Only directing a debut picture for a new Bond.
