The IMDb page for the next film in the James Bond franchise, which will either be Daniel Craig’s final outing or a new actor’s debut effort in the role, has had a small but interesting update discovered by MI6 HQ.
Company credits for the film list Syncopy as a production company on the entry alongside the usual Bond franchise trio of Danjaq, EON Productions, and MGM.
Syncopy is the London-based production company owned by Christopher Nolan and his wife Emma Thomas. Syncopy’s past titles include every Nolan-directed film since “Batman Begins” along with films he produced like “Man of Steel” and “Transcendence”.
This has already led to speculation Nolan may be directing the next film. It’s not an out of character choice – he’s certainly got the talent, he’s a Brit, he’s a massive Bond fan, he’s talked about the possibility with the producers over the years, and he hasn’t set his next project after “Dunkirk”.
He previously has said scheduling issues were the main problem with his involvement, could the timing finally be right? Remember that this is the IMDB, entries can be edited by members and are not necessarily verified – especially during the pre-production phase – so take this as VERY much rumor for now.
Update: No shock here, the IMDb page for the film has been updated with the Syncopy link having been removed.
