Sam Mendes - Sam Mendes Heading Back To Bond - Report

British director Sam Mendes is in talks to helm a second Bond movie following the massive success of his 007 debut Skyfall, according to a U.S. report.

The Daniel Craig blockbuster became the most successful Bond movie of all time, breaking box office records last year (12) and scoring numerous awards including an Oscar for theme tune performer Adele and two British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) Film Awards.

Despite the movie's huge success, Mendes expressed reluctance to return to direct a second installment, insisting the idea made him feel "physically ill", and he vowed to press ahead with his planned theatre work instead.

However, Mendes is now said to be back in talks with Bond bosses, who are keen to sign him up for second outing, according to industry website Deadline.com.

The Oscar winner is reportedly considering starting production on his second 007 movie next year (14) after he wraps up work on his musical version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and a staging of King Lear.
