"I'll get it, Denis"

"I'll get it, Denis"

Denis Villeneuve has thrown his director's chair into the ring for Bond 26.

 

"I would deeply love to one day make a James Bond movie", he said.

 

"It's a character that I've been with — like everybody — since my childhood. I have massive affection for Bond. It would be a big challenge for people to try and reboot it after what Daniel [Craig] did.

 

"What Daniel Craig brought to Bond was so unique and strong and probably unmatchable. He's the ultimate James Bond. I can't wait to see Cary's [Joji Fukunaga] movie. I'm very excited. I'm one of the biggest Bond fans.

 

"It's really a massive privilege. I don't want to say I'm very arrogant or pretentious right now. It's true that it would be a dream to do 007 — that would be pure cinematic joy".

 

 

The Canadian has previously helmed Sicario, Arrival, and Bladerunner 2049. His sci-fi epic Dune is expected to be the first of a two-part series.
