I think that if Nolan approached and told them that the job was theirs, I think that they would do it. There is also a pre-established relationship there as Treefingers is on Memento's soundtrack and Thom Yorke gave Nolan the song Analyze to play over the credits of The Prestige

A Nolan Bond-trilogy in IMAX with Tom Hardy, Hoytema and Hans Zimmer... that sounds perfect, although I do wonder whether Nolan would really want to make three films and "waste" his time with franchise filmmaking again. But maybe if he's having the time of his life with Bond, it's no problem for him.

The only thing I simply cannot see in this scenario is those cheesy Bond-titles. I would love him to have the balls and just flat out drop the titles, and have the usual Nolan-titles (black screen, white font colors), but I fear people would mob him on the streets.

But what's get me excited the most about Nolan doing Bond is the fact that I'd love to see him tackle an action-crime-drama in the likes of Heat (and/or The Dark Knight).

Seeing Nolan all dressed up for the premiere's, etc. for Dunkirk got me thinking... What if instead of directing Bond, we see
Christopher Nolan as James Bond?
I'd definitely see that :lol:

One Bond film would be enough in my opinion. I don't want to see him use 6 or more years of his life making another franchised trilogy.

I mean, seriously though.

The last few films take so many cues from Nolan films, so I don't see what he could add to the franchise that wasn't already attempted or partially accomplished by at least Casino Royale and Skyfall.

Unless Nolan makes it a period piece, which is the best change that can come to the franchise, IMO.

A period piece Bond would be epic, but I somehow doubt the studio want that.

And does he have to bring something revolutionary to create a great movie? What did he do to the Batman franchise except bringing extraordinary directing/screenwriting?

These are Christopher Nolan's peak years, I'd rather he make more originals than touch another franchise that doesn't need rebooting. Hasn't he always said in his interviews when asked that Bond is fine without his help?

Any specific period which would be more interesting than from the 60s on? Since we've had Bond films all basically taking place around the time they're made, which is from the 60s on.

Amid all the talk about the Bond series needing a new direction in the near future, reverting to a period setting -- such as the Victorian era, among other strong candidates -- is incredibly fascinating. It would be difficult to manage with audience expectations -- particularly if it were to extend beyond just one standalone movie, but with the right approach, it could seriously work.
