False. Mendes is putting together a fine looking Bond tale. Can't wait.

Sam Mendes is taking some cues from Christopher Nolan.
Mendes mentioned The Dark Knight and Nolan twice in a very short span, first praising the current Batman run (along with the Bourne films) as one of the best franchises, "because there are characters at the center who are to some degree in conflict about what they do, and are pushed right to the edge." Then talking about his learning to direct action, he praised Nolan's sense of non-linear action sequences: "The challenge is to create parallel action so you're not locked into a linear chase, which is something that Chris Nolan for example does very, very well. It's never just A following B, there's something else going on simultaneously, and they overlap." As two British directors who broke out in smaller dramas before moving on to giant, blockbuster action films, Mendes and Nolan have clear similarities-- so if you're curious about what Mendes-directed action will look like, you may need look no further than The Dark Knight.
