Sam Mendes Turns Down Next Bond Movie
Skyfall director graciously declines offer to helm Bond 24 as well...
The Charlie And The Chocolate Factoryand King Lear, that need my complete focus over the next year and beyond.
"I feel very honoured to have been part of the Bond family and very much hope I have a chance to work with them again sometime in the future."
And Broccoli and Wilson were equally gracious in their own statement on the matter.
They said: ""We thoroughly enjoyed working with Sam, he directed our most-successful Bond movie ever, Skyfall.
"We would have loved to have made the next film with him but completely respect his decision to focus on other projects and hope to have the opportunity to collaborate with him again."
