Danny Boyle leads race for 'Bond 25'

Initially there were reports that Christopher Nolan might be directing the next Bond film but in his recent comment he has clearly mentioned it that he is not the one who is going to do this job.

The Trainspotting director is very eager to helm a Bond movie, and although he's in the midst of developing another film for Working Title, there's no cast attached yet, so he could still push the project back to accommodate Bond. Now, Deadline's sources claim that Boyle has a specific idea for a James Bond film and has reteamed with Trainspotting writer John Hodge to develop the story.

Entertainment trade daily Variety, which broke the story, reports that Oscar victor Boyle is "high on their list" but "no formal offer has yet been made" by Bond producers Eon Productions and studio MGM.

Asked in 2013 whether he'd consider it, he told Collider: "They're not really for me. But I've always been inspired by the films and would love to do one someday". When the 007 movie distribution rights went up for grabs, it only prolonged the process, especially with Sam Mendes leaving the franchise after having directed two films.
