Mendes isn't ruling out a Bond return

Skyfall director Sam Mendes said recently that he declined the offer to direct the next James Bond film however the film makers are not giving up on him!

Speaking with Getty Images Entertainment, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli said: “We will get him back. We haven’t given up hope... Maybe not for the next one but we will get him back again.”

Fellow producer Michael G Wilson added: "We are working on him. We hope that maybe he will have gotten inspired to come back."

The American Beauty director, Mendes, who was formerly married to Kate Winslet, shared his own view on future instalments in the franchise: “Bond movies, they need someone working on it now, I’m doing my theatre projects and then I’ll work out...

"I’ve definitely left the door open though...

"I’ve never really repeated myself, done the same type of movie one after the other, so just give me a chance to think about what I actually want to say."
