I feel that he would definitely make a great Bond film along the lines of From Russia With Love, set in Eastern Europe. He certainly gave us an excellent, more grim and realistic, spy thriller in the form of Tinker Tailor. Surely it would be a walk in the park for him?

David Fincher would be a really interesting choice if he was willing to helm it. His precision, aesthetic, his way with actors and his unmatched sense of pacing would certainly bring a new dynamism to the franchise. It's unlikely however since he often demands final cut and I doubt the production company would allow his somewhat controversial Kubrickian vision to develop uncensored for such a large franchise. Other people are Bryan Singer - a director who I think is genuinely talented but hasn't been offered the material of late to demonstrate this. Also (I know he's 'retired' but whatever) Steven Soderbergh. Gary Ross. Duncan Jones. Looking at this list I think Matthew Vaughn and Danny Boyle are particularly striking choices. QT and Nolan are a no no. Both (as much as I do love them) are far too self-indulgent as directors to tap into the spectacle of 007 as an 'event' for an audience.

Baffled by the strong support for Nolan -- his movies are action-packed, yes, but they are also cold, mechanical, humourless and, most importantly, sexless. Bond movies are about wit and romance as much as stunts and I don't think CN can bring those qualities to the table. Would love to see Paul McGuigan have a go.

Definitely NO to Tarantino or Bigalow or Greengrass. Why does it have to be someone new? Skyfall was good, but if you pick one of Daniel Craig's Bond movies as the best, it's still Casino Royale. Why not have Martin Campbell come back? He did an amazing job. This is just a silly debate.

David Yates?

If he wasn't attached to two projects at the moment? I personally felt he did a great job directing the remaining Harry Potter series.
