Christopher Nolan has denied reports that he is being lined up to direct the next James Bond movie.

Following No Time to Die, the next 007 film will be a reboot with a new director and a new actor donning the tuxedo after the Daniel Craig era.

For many James Bond fans, one of the dream director choices for nearly 20 years has been Nolan.

The acclaimed director has helmed some of the biggest movies of the century including the Dark Knight series, Inception, Interstellar and Oppenheimer.

He has long been linked with potentially helming a Bond movie, and he would consider working on that franchise if the circumstances were right.

"The influence of those movies in my filmography is embarrassingly apparent. It would be an amazing privilege to do one,” Nolan previously said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast.

"At the same time, when you take on a character like that you’re working with a particular set of constraints.

"It has to be the right moment in your creative life where you can express what you want to express and really burrow into something within the appropriate constraints because you would never want to take on something like that and do it wrong."

According to World of Reel, Nolan was reportedly in talks with Bond Producers Barbara Broccoli And Michael G. Wilson over potentially helming the next "two or three" movies in the franchise.

The reports suggested that Nolan would only consider directing a Bond movie if he is given significant creative control.

And, should he be given the job, he will adapt Ian Fleming's early novels and treat the movie as a period piece set in the 1950s or 1960s.

But, he says there are currently no plans for him to helm the next Bond.

When asked about the rumours, he told The Associated Press: “No, sadly no — no truth to those rumours."

That's that, then.
