Daniel Craig wants Sam Mendes back for Bond 24

Spectre (2015) - 04-11-12
James Bond star Daniel Craig is lobbying for director Sam Mendes to continue his 007 helming duties from "Skyfall" in to the next adventure, Bond 24.

Daniel Craig said: “If Sam were to do the next one, which would be great, we have set up an awful lot of ideas and we have still got other things to play around with. I love working with him. He allows me to relax and get on with my job.”

A 'movie source' at MGM told the Express: “Daniel has made it very clear that Sam should direct the next film. He and Sam have been plotting out story ideas but no executive has given them a yes yet.”

Last month, Mendes started to distance himself from the prospect of directing the next Bond film.
