Christopher Nolan has been approached to direct the next 007 movie according to The Daily Mail.
Informal talks have reportedly begun between Nolan, his representatives and the producers behind the James Bond pictures, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G .Wilson.
"Skyfall" helmer Sam Mendes was previously linked to the project and has already confirmed he's opted out of returning.
Nolan is also committed to "Interstellar" which means it's unlikely Nolan could do the immediate next Bond film even if he wanted to.
A Bond series source says: "It does no harm for Broccoli and Wilson to talk with Nolan, even if nothing happens this time round."
