Sam Mendes Confirms ‘Spectre’ Is His Last James Bond Movie | Film News
Sam Mendes has confirmed he will be vacating the James Bond franchise director’s chair, making Spectre his last 007 film. Although he previously stated Skyfall would be his last, only to return three years later, he has explained that Spectre’s plot made his exit considerably easier. This inevitably means a new director will be present for the 25th Bond film, leaving a lot of stones unturned. Mendes depicts that: “There is a sense of completeness that wasn’t there at the end of Skyfall, and that’s what makes this feel different. It feels like there’s a rightness to it, that I have finished a journey”.
So far, in less than a week of its release, Spectre has earned approximately $80.4 million in the box office and has generally received positive reviews. However, with regards to the speculation over Daniel Craig’s future as the iconic secret agent, the actor stated yesterday in an interview with Today that, “The simple answer is: I don’t want to think about it… Maybe I’ll make another one, I don’t know”.
