I love Thomas Newmans music but it didn't have the exciting edge needed for a Bond flick, whereas David Arnold IS Bond. So bring him back with the next director please.

I'm with MonsterCat - Joe Wright would be a great choice with his character driven style.

He's spotty outside of Bond, but Martin Campbell has directed two of the best Bond films ever. I don't think Craig liked him very much though, so I doubt it will happen. Certainly get David Arnold back in the fold, if nothing else. Newman's an excellent composer, but his effort was very forgettable next to Arnold's superb Casino Royale score.

If Campbell doesn't get the gig, I'd go for Matthew Vaughn or Danny Boyle. Joe Wright is very overrated, and Paul Greengrass never misses an opportunity to slag off Bond, so I don't know why anyone would suggest him. Plus, his shakycam bollocks is played out.

I agree. I know a lot of the dialogue was inspired by the 50th anniversary and was maybe put in to keep the fans happy, but my wife ( who isn't really a Bond fan) was a bit irritated by the self-referential dialogue and in-jokes- and we agreed that me having to explain some of the references and " ohh isn't that clever" bits wasn't necessarily a good thing ( Dr Who is the same). I say that we're done with the whole reboot/exploring Bond's origins and character bit. Any more and it will tip over into self-indulgence. Lets have stunts, fights, chases, but done with that unique class and gloss that can only be found in a Bond film

I think what most people are forgetting here, is that the next Bond will be in the wake of Skyfall, bigger directors (Nolan, Danny Boyle etc) would rather create/imprint their own take (new Bond, new style), rather than being responsible for continuing Mendes' legacy. I vote Vaughn or Campbell.

Let Kenneth Branagh Direct the next one - 6/3/2013 9:17:17 PM

I have a feeling that Kenneth Branagh could be approached for the next Bond, since he did a good job with Thor. I'm sure once studios see how he handles the Jack Ryan reboot. His phone will soon be ringing.

Remake On her majesty's secret service. Great movie. Has everything. Give it to Nolan to direct.

Brad Bird?

Does action well, and The Incredibles was pure homage to 60s Ken Adams Bond sets.

If not, Vaughn would be great - he is technically a fabulous director, I love watching anything he directs.

I wonder if Nolan would be too gritty for 007?

I'd expect EON to have no problem attracting talent after Skyfall's success.

Bra Bird would have a good take on the Bond series, as his work on The Incredibles was great, but he could end up making it too much homage and not enough originality and modern flare. Perhaps Nolan or Fincher?
