Danny Boyle says he wouldn't want to helm a Bond film

Spectre (2015) - 12-12-12
Chatting to BBC Radio 4′s Front Row, the director who helmed "Slumdog Millionaire" and directed the opening ceremony of this year's London Summer Olympics says that he wouldn't suit a Bond film.

“Certain people can handle that and I love watching those kinds of films, but I’m much better with a smaller amount of money and trying to make it go a long way.”

That said, Sam Mendes' experience and film choices to date have been on a much less grand scale than a Bond outing, and the "American Beauty" director still managed to helm himself a popular and financially successful 007 adventure.
