The will he/won’t he drama seems to continue. While Mendes did initially turn down directing duties for the 24th James Bond film due to his commitments to the theater. I reported back in March that EON were still interested in signing him up. Well it seems that they were able to work with his schedule and get him onboard.
While I haven’t minded a new director for each film, it did make each new film unique. Getting Mendes back will lead to a whole new set of expectations for the next film.
If Mendes does return, this will mar the first time in nearly 25 years that someone has directed two Bond films in a row.
