Christopher Nolan - Christopher Nolan wanted for Bond

Christopher Nolan has been approached to direct the next James Bond movie.

The 'Dark Knight Rises' filmmaker and his representatives have reportedly begun early talks with the franchise's producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson after 'Skyfall' director ruled himself out of taking the helm on Bond 24.

However, Nolan is currently in pre-production on 'Interstellar' - which will star Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain - and may be reluctant to go straight into another huge project, though insiders think they may be able to sign him up for a future Bond movie if he turns down the next one.

A source told the Daily Mail newspaper: ''It does no harm for Broccoli and Wilson to talk with Nolan, even if nothing happens this time round.''

Mendes has previously revealed Bond 24 - which will see Daniel Craig portray the suave spy for the fourth time - would require 12-18 months of pre-production, followed by six months of filming.

The director was described as ''close'' to signing up for the new movie, but had to withdraw because of his UK theatre commitments with 'Charlies And The Chocolate Factory' and 'King Lear', plus he is tipped to take the helm at the National Theatre when Sir Nicholas Hytner steps down in March 2015.
