Danny Boyle has apparently been offered the opportunity to direct the next Bond movie.
The Oscar winner could head the 23rd film in the 007 franchise after impressing Barbara Broccoli – the head of the Bond franchise at EON Productions – with Slumdog Millionaire.
A source told the Sun newspaper: “Danny is the man of the moment and he is being bombarded with offers from studios. He has been offered the chance to direct the 23rd Bond film by Barbara. The EON team love his vision and think that it would work perfectly for the new look of Bond.”
The insider continued: “Danny has always insisted he is more interested in the film than the money. However, with Daniel Craig’s involvement and the way the films are now structured – with the emphasis on the characters and plot rather than gags and gadgets – it is right up Danny’s street.”
