With Roger Deakins unavailable Sam Mendes seems to have offered one of the most celebrated new talents to take over as director of photography for BOND 24. Hoyte van Hoytema recently filmed Christopher Nolan´s upcoming sci-fi film “Interstellar” and received international acclaim last year for his breathtakingly beautiful work on Spike Jonze´s “Her”. He also shot Tomas Alfredson´s “Let the right one in” and his LeCarré adaptation “Tinker, Tailer, Soldier, Spy”.
