Christopher Nolan, voted 2012's director most likely to cast Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a superhero, is rumored to be taking over the job as director of the James Bond franchise. The report comes from The Daily Mail, a British newspaper that, like all British newspapers, reports mainly on nude photos of the Royal Family. Sam Mendes declined to direct the next movie due to commitments to put on plays of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and King Lear, which he presumably considers more important than Bond after suffering some sort of damaging brain trauma. It's good news for fanboys, however, because Nolan is highly likely to cast fanboy dreamboat JGL in the film, possibly as Bond himself.
"I'm really excited about the possibility of JGL playing Bond," squealed ComicBook.net's Gus Sterlingham, swooning. "He's perfect for the part, just like he' would have been perfect for the part of Batman or Rocket Raccoon."
Sterlingham then listed of the top ten reasons JGL should have played both characters, adding, "But Justice League and Guardians of the Galaxy's loss is Bond's Gain. This is practically a sure thing. I've gotta go write seventeen hit-farming articles on my website about it!"
Of course, it's still very early in the process, and there's no confirmation that Nolan will even direct the film, much less cast the golden child, Gordon-Levitt. Nolan is currently working on Interstellar, a movie about wormholes starring Anne Hathaway and the hunky Matthew McConaughey. While it's sure to be a good flick, Interstellar is well into preproduction without a JGL casting rumor, making it far less lucrative for the geek media to report on, so we hope he takes this new job instead.
