Paul Greengrass is my choice to direct just about anything, but he took Bond to the next level with Bourne which the makers of "Casino Royale" wisely drew a lot of inspiration from. Bigelow & Fincher are too intense. As you said "Inception" was Nolan's excellent homage to 007. I like Noyce because he did excellent work in this thriller genre small & large with "Dead Calm" & "A Clear & Present Danger". Another name to think about is Ron Howard who knows how to wring suspense from an ending we already knew the outcome of ("Apollo 13").

Frankly, I think I should. I've already directed one very low budget feature, Tiger Lily Road which is a character driven, kind of kinky, dark comedy with at least, I think, 4 gunshots and a snow storm. Who else has those credentials? Seriously? But hey, decide for yourself - watch our scene clips on youtube/tigerlilyroad. PS: I also saved the world in X-Men First Class. Really. imdb me.

Are you out of your mind? A bond movie is a BIG movie. It's got mega EXPLOSIONS and lots of sexual inuendo and well, explosions and chases and shit. Actually your scene clips are kind of funny. But they're NOT BOND!

Fincher, Nolan, Noyce, and Zemeckis are all respectable and talented directors who would each bring something interesting to the material in ways that I would not expect of the other directors cited above (aside from my main choice). However, the only one who'd bring any real heart and creative fire to the enterprise (something lacking in the franchise since, oh, LICENCE TO KILL?) would be Tarantino. His Bond would make me sit up and take notice and put a smile on my face...and possibly have audiences cheering like they did when I first saw YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE in a theater 46 years ago.

Anyone would do a better job. Am I the only person alive who actually watched Skyfall?
