Fans are desperate to know anything about the next James Bond films, with everything up for grabs.

It's being claimed that Oppenheimer and Inception director Christopher Nolan is in talks to direct the next two James Bond films.

The acclaimed director is known for his vivid imagination and for going above and beyond, so fans woul love to see what he comes up with.

World Of Reel claims Bond producer Barbara Broccoli is “zeroing in” on Nolan.

The ongoing strikes have delayed any talks along with the Oppenheimer promotional commitments.

If it went ahead, Nolan would write and direct two James Bond films.

They would be the first films since the departure of Daniel Craig.

Fans are eagerly awaiting to find out who will be replacing Craig in the lead role.

It's claimed an issue with negotiations is also the amount of creative freedom Nolan wants for the project.

If it doesn't go to Nolan, it is claimed that Danny Boyle, Denis Villeneuve and Paul Greengrass are currently in the frame.

Nolan previously said it would be "an amazing privilege" to direct a Bond film.

“The influence of those movies in my filmography is embarrassingly apparent,” he explained.

“It would be an amazing privilege to do one. At the same time, when you take on a character like that you’re working with a particular set of constraints.”

He added: “It has to be the right moment in your creative life where you can express what you want to express and really burrow into something within the appropriate constraints because you would never want to take on something like that and do it wrong.”
