Daniel Craig is looking for the next James Bond actor after finishing his run, but there is already a new volunteer looking for the next 007 director: Dennis Villaniu.
In the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast hosted by Josh Horowitz, Villeneuve said he’s a huge Bond fan and if asked, directing a movie in the franchise would be a dream for him.
“Frankie – and I can’t believe I’m saying that – but the answer is a resounding yes. I want to make a James Bond movie one day.” “It’s going to be a big challenge for people to re-launch what Daniel did. What Daniel brought to Craig Bond is so unique and powerful and probably incomparable. He’s the ultimate James Bond. I can’t wait to see Carrie’s movie. I’m so excited.” I’m one of Bond’s biggest fans. “
Carrie Joey has directed Fukunaga Craig’s fifth and final 007 adventure “No Time to Die”, which is finally in theaters after many delays. After the film grossed .. 6.3 million in Thursday night’s preview, it broke the highest opening night record for a Bond film, which was previously 5. 5.3 million by 2015’s “Specter”.
Villeneuve may be a huge Bond fan, but he’s got a lot on his plate right now, with the sci-fi epic “Dune” in theaters and HBO Max opening on October 22 in just two weeks. The first in a two-episode series.
“Just thinking about it, I’m tired [laughs]. One thing at a time, “he said.” It’s really a huge opportunity. I don’t want to say right now that I’m too arrogant or a liar. It’s true that doing 007 would be a dream. I don’t know if anything like that will happen, but it’s a special opportunity. At the end of the day, it will be pure cinematic joy.
