Danny ... mocked up as Bond

SLUMDOG Millionaire director DANNY BOYLE has been asked to take charge of the next James Bond movie.

Down-to-earth Danny is hot property in Hollywood after his Mumbai-set film became an Oscar sensation.

And Bond chief Barbara Broccoli, who now heads the huge 007 franchise at EON Productions, is leading the chase for his services.

Manchester-born Danny, 52, has insisted in interviews that big budgets are not important to him.

But the grittier direction Bond films have taken since DANIEL CRAIG took the role has changed his view about the blockbusters.

Bombarded

He is also pals with CALLUM MCDOUGAL — who shot the 2000 film The Beach with him and is now a Bond producer.

A source said: “Danny is the man of the moment and he is being bombarded with offers from studios.

“He has been offered the chance to direct the 23rd Bond film by Barbara. The EON team love his vision and think that it would work perfectly for the new look of Bond.

“Danny has always insisted he is more interested in the film than the money.

“However, with Daniel Craig’s involvement and the way the films are now structured — with the emphasis on the characters and plot rather than gags and gadgets — it is right up Danny’s street.

“Everyone on the EON team thinks Danny would be a fantastic addition to the Bond family.”

Danny was named Best Director as Slumdog — starring DEV PATEL and FREIDA PINTO — picked up eight Oscars.

It also won four Golden Globes and seven Baftas.

His previous films include Shallow Grave, Trainspotting and 28 Days Later.

'Slumdog Millionaire' director Danny Boyle is not set to direct the next James Bond movie

Perhaps it was wishful thinking from some die-hard James Bond fans, or maybe Danny Boyle looks really good in a tux. Whatever the reasoning, the rumor that the British Slumdog Millionaire Oscar winner is in line to direct the next Bond movie is not true, EW has learned. "I enjoy the Bond movies, always have and always will, but I have no plans to direct one," Boyle says via e-mail. "I don't know who came up with the story, but please tell them I'm very flattered to be thought of!"

Morgan Says "Bond 23" Is 'Shocking'

user posted image

While he couldn’t discuss a great deal about the film, scribe Peter Morgan said we can expect ‘a shocking story’ for the next James Bond feature reports MI6.

Currently in Vienna, Morgan was at work on the first draft of the "Bond 23" script from July to October of this year. He's known for his scripts for "The Queen," "The Last King of Scotland," "Frost/Nixon" and "The Damned United",

Pre-production work on the film however has now been put on hold until February as the heavily in debt MGM, through which EON Productions release the 007 pictures, is up for sale.

Despite the issues it's expected that filming will commence at the end of 2010 for a release November 2011.

yesterday's news - James Bond 23 Put On Hold: http://www.slashfilm.com/2010/01/04/james-...23-put-on-hold/
today's news - Sam Mendes to direct next James Bond movie: http://www.heatvisionblog.com/2010/01/sam-...-007-movie.html

Discuss: What do you think of Mendes as the next Bond director? Do you think he’ll try to bring misplaced indie sensibilities to the franchise like Forster, or could he elevate it to something we’ve never seen before?
