Inception and The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy has been getting a lot of attention in Hollywood. His last film, This Means War, did poorly at the box office, I think mostly because of the bad reputation of director McG. However, Hardy's turn as Bane in Dark Knight Rises makes the film even more eagerly anticipated. Talking to a UK radio station, Hardy revealed he would like to play a spy again, but this time as the most famous one in all of film history - 007 himself. "I'd love to play Bond with Chris Nolan (as a) director or something, it would be awesome."
Indeed it would, Mr. Hardy. Indeed it would. Now, let's be realistic, Hardy is being anything but serious. Skyfall is halfway through production and headed for a November 9th release. Daniel Craig, the current James Bond, has been signed to play the world's greatest secret agent for five more films. Everybody would love to see Christopher Nolan as director of a James Bond film, including myself. Nolan hasn't picked a project to run with after Dark Knight Rises, though there has been some mention about his returning to his Howard Hughes biopic, Mr. Hughes, with Jim Carrey. So nothing certain has arisen from this other than just some fun speculation. Would you like to see a James Bond movie directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Tom Hardy as Agent 007?
