Denis Villenueve Has Been In Bond Discussions
Splashonians, are you familiar with director Denis Villenueve? Well, he’s fresh off directing Blade Runner 2049 and showing no signs of rest. Right now he’s working on a script for his adaptation of the classic novel Dune. But, that’s not the only thing looking on the horizon. Cue the James Bond theme.
He’s been rumored to be a top choice for director of the next James Bond installment. That may excite some, but when Villenueve spoke recently on the podcast The Playlist. Things looks okay, but the main takeaway is Dune is the priority.
“The thing is I don’t now about that, but listen,” Villeneuve says. “Daniel Craig is a very inspiring actor and I had some contact and the thing is that I’m busy right now doing Dune. But, I will say to have the privilege to work with him it would be a dream. I would love to work with Daniel and a Bond movie for me would be a treat. It’s a matter of timing, I guess.”
I guess time will tell whether Villenueve is the next Bond film director.
