It doesn’t look like Sam Mendes will be rushing to direct another “James Bond” movie any time soon.
The director, who is preparing for 2020 awards season success with his latest flick “1917”, was the filmmaker behind “Skyfall” and “Spectre”.
Mendes told the Sunday Times of the franchise, “When I think of them my stomach churns.
“It’s just so hard. You feel like the England football manager. You think, if I win, I’ll survive. If I lose, I’ll be pilloried. There is no victory. Just survival,” he added, according to the Independent.
Mendes also said there are just too many 007 fans around the world, so it’s impossible to please everybody.
“Everyone has their own version of it in their head.”
Daniel Craig recently wrapped filming on his fifth and final “Bond” film “No Time to Die”, which hits theatres in April 2020. Watch the trailer below.
