I’ve always loved Bond films, but there has been a noticeable decline in interest in them from the public over the years. That’s probably why Skyfall surprised everyone by being actually cool, like the movies are supposed to be. Thanks to what many are calling another revival of the franchise, Daniel Craig is signed on for two more movies, and so is Skyfall’s screenwriter John Logan, but unfortunately director Sam Mendes will not be joining them for 007’s next outing. He’s bowed out from helming the next film to work on other productions, but he hasn’t ruled out returning for another go sometime in the future.

Disappointed about Mendes not directing the next film? Who do you think should direct in his stead? Let us know in the comments below!
