Danny Boyle could direct Bond 23? March 3rd, 2009

The word from the ‘not so truth­fulSun is that Danny Boyle, direc­tor of Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire, fol­low­ing his Oscar win and press atten­tion, has been offered the next James Bond gig. Pos­si­bly join­ing Cal­lum McDou­gal again, after pre­vi­ously work­ing on Boyle’s Beach adap­ta­tion together. Clas­si­fied as rumor for now.

A source said: “Danny is the man of the moment and he is being bom­barded with offers from stu­dios.
“He has been offered the chance to direct the 23rd Bond film by Bar­bara. The EON team love his vision and think that it would work per­fectly for the new look of Bond.
“Danny has always insisted he is more inter­ested in the film than the money.
“How­ever, with Daniel Craig’s involve­ment and the way the films are now struc­tured — with the empha­sis on the char­ac­ters and plot rather than gags and gad­gets — it is right up Danny’s street.
“Every­one on the EON team thinks Danny would be a fan­tas­tic addi­tion to the Bond family.”

The ques­tion isnt who will direct it the ques­tion is who will bother watch­ing a film where they know the main charecter survives!
