Daniel Craig wants Sam Mendes back for Bond 24 according to the Express

Daniel Craig has spoken about how he would like Sam Mendes to return for Bond 24, according to a report by the Express.

The article quotes an unnamed MGM source as saying that Craig and Mendes have a lot of ideas left for another Bond film, which contradicts what Mendes said in a recent interview. He told reporters then that he had put everything he wanted to do in a Bond film into Skyfall, and would only consider another if he came up with more ideas.

The article also talks about Craig “pressuring” Barbara Broccoli into re-signing Mendes.

While I’m sure Eon would be happy for Mendes to return, it’s not quite as simple as that; and look what happened to Pierce Brosnan when he started talking about getting Quentin Tarantino on board.
