Sam Mendes NOT Confirmed to Direct Next Bond Film

by at . Comments

Sam Mendes, you're killing us!

After he insisted he didn't want to direct any more Bond films, Mendes had reportedly signed on to helm Bond 24, and was even working on a deal for Bond 25.

But, that no longer seems to be the case.

During a red carpet event for the opening of his West End theatrical production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Mendes insisted he's been too focused on the new play to deal with Bond.

When asked about his involvement with the next Bond film, Mendes said "I don’t know yet. I’m in discussion over the ‘B’ word and I won’t make any decision until this [play] is open."

Regardless of whether Mendes is directing it, we do know that Daniel Craig will return to play 007.

We also know about the sexy new Bond girl: Penelope Cruz.

That's good enough for now.
