It’s only been a day or so since director Christopher Nolan ruled himself out as a potential director for Bond 25. In true Nolan style, he seemed only interested in the film if he were to make the film his own, and with Craig returning, he wouldn’t get to do so.

So who does that leave? Well, it still leaves a whole lot of talented filmmakers, and it looks like one, in particular, is now a frontrunner for the gig. According to Variety, Danny Boyle is the current frontrunner to direct Bond 25, though no official offer has been made yet.

For those who somehow do not know, Danny Boyle is the director of such films as Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours, Trainspotting, and 28 Days Later. In short, he’s an amazingly talented filmmaker who would be bringing a lot to the Bond franchise.

White Boy Rick director Yann Demange was previously reported as one of the top choices to helm the upcoming film, but there seems to be a real push to go for a bigger name. If name recognition is that much of an important deal for them, then they can fare much worse than Danny Boyle in terms of both name recognition and overall skill.
