Denis Villeneuve wishes Bond gig BY SAEED NASIR


Denis Villeneuve would wish to work on a Connection movie with Daniel Craig.

The ‘Blade Runner 2049’ filmmaker has already spoken with the blockbuster spy thriller franchise’s producer Barbara Broccoli about the possibility of helming a movie with the current 007, but says his work on ‘Dune’ would block the way this time round.

He said: “Listen, I would love to do a Bond movie. I believe Daniel Craig is an excellent actor and I’d like to, but several months ago I arrived to do ‘Dune’ and I involved myself.


“I committed myself and I’m someone it doesn’t step back. I recall I focused on do ‘Enemy’, they came with ‘Prisoners’ I said, ‘I need to do Enemy first’, and I needed to break to flex the schedule.

“I did the same with ‘Entrance’ and ‘Blade Runner’.

“I did Cutting tool Runner, one of my conditions was that I’d have period to do ‘Entrance’ first.

“Once I commit, I commit. When Legendary offered me to do ‘Dune’, on the silver plate? Which was like my desire task that I’m dreaming to do for 30 years?

“I said yes right away. I wish to honour that.

It doesn’t indicate the movie may happen, maybe in six months the movie will – and Relationship can be an old fantasy of mine, but I cannot maintain two places at exactly the same time.”

The 50-year-old director says he could look to getting associated with the movies after the next one, which is because of hit cinemas in November 2019, but by that point ‘Spectre’ celebrity Daniel may not still be Relationship.

He informed ScreenCrush: “From the strange 12 months because I would love to do a James Bond. I need to focus.

Maybe Bond 26.

“I would love to. I thought to Barbara [Broccoli], I would love to work with you and with Daniel, but I’m employed. [Laughs] I am going to love to take action, truthfully. I’m a spoiled filmmaker right now.
