Danny Boyle on why he wont direct a Bond film

13-Mar-2013 • Bond News

Despite being touted as a good choice by Bond fans and critics alike, Danny Boyle has explained that he wouldn't much like to direct a 007 adventure.

He explained at a panel discussion recently:

"No," he said, joking that his collaboration with Elizabeth II and Daniel Craig was "his Bond film".

"A ceiling that is limiting us and you try and break through. We want our films to look like $100 million dollars, that’s for sure. And we want them to sound like $200 million. But you try and do that with that cap on them. And that’s where the energy, belief and evangelical nature of the process comes from," the director says of the soaring Bond budgets.

Of the Bond franchise, and of big budget blockbusters, the director says: "I love watching those movies, I’m a big fan."
