JAMES BOND: Tom Hardy Discusses Chances Of Working With Christopher Nolan

Tom Hardy Opines About Working With Christopher Nolan For James Bond

Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy got candid about the possibility of collaborating with The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan on the James Bond series.

Having worked together on Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, and Dunkirk, the two men have quite the history with each other. Nolan’s decision to cast Hardy in Inception played a large part in propelling him to stardom, leading to continued collaboration between the two as well as roles for Hardy in other high-profile projects like the aforementioned Fury Road.

With this in mind, it is hardly a surprise that Nolan’s expression of interest in directing a James Bond film has sparked speculation that he might work with Hardy again. After all, Hardy has been previously floated as a contender for the role of 007 after Daniel Craig retires from the series. While Hardy declined to comment on his chances of getting the role out of fear of “jinxing” it, he said that it would be “cool” to work with the Interstellar director again.

Cbr.com, the source of this story, had this to say:

The immediate future of the franchise appears to be up in the air, with Craig making headlines in 2015 by saying he’d rather slash his wrists than star in another Bond film. However, he later softened his stance, explaining in October that, “If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly.”

“They say that shit sticks, and that definitely stuck,” he said.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
