  • Ang Lee, Tom Hooper, David Yates, [?] Danny Boyle, Shane Black, Christopher Nolan, and [?] Nicolas Winding Refn, were all considered to direct before Sam Mendes agreed to return after directing Skyfall. Regarding Nolan, associate producer Gregg Wilson has said: "Christopher Nolan would be a 'dream' choice for a future Bond director. We would of course be interested to have a discussion with him. We would like to do the same type of movie. It would be a dream to be with Nolan. But we always have an open mind when it comes to directors."
