Bart Layton in discussions to direct Bond 25

15-Sep-2018 • No Time To Die

British director Bart Layton, who was first linked to Bond 25 as a possible replacement to Danny Boyle last week, has admitted he is in discussions with producers.

He told talkRADIO's TalkFILM podcast: "I am in discussions about it. There's nothing more concrete. It's very flattering to be put in the mix for something like that, and of course we've all grown up watching Bond with our dads and stuff like that. Well, a lot of us have. I probably have got bitten by the bug of action film making and all of the magic that comes with it."

When asked about his favourite Bond, he said:  "I mean, obviously my Bond was Roger Moore and when you're a kid that's your Bond. You don't really think about whether he's the best Bond. He's your guy.

"Was it 'The Spy Who Loved Me' with the car that went underwater? For me, it didn't get better than that. But of course as you grow up, you realise maybe there were better ones."
