Sam Mendes Says None of Your Favorites Are Going to Be the Next 007

Sam Mendes confirmed what most expected: Spectre was officially his last James Bond film. The director—who was credited with injecting new life into the franchise with Skyfall. “It’s not The X Factor, it’s not the EU referendum, it’s not a public vote. Barbara Broccoli chooses who’s going to be the next Bond: end of story. I can guarantee whatever happens with it, it will not be what you expect. That’s what she’s been brilliant at, and that’s how it’ll survive.” Mendes says we should trust in her taste because the last time Broccoli chose and outside-the-box Bond, things worked out very well. “Public support for Daniel [Craig] was zero. It was her saying ‘that man over there is going to change the whole thing, I’m going to cast him.‘”
