Sam Mendes is unlikely to do another Bond movie after SPECTRE. Having tied all Daniel Craig’s films together the director says he has now “finished a journey”.
Following the release of Skyfall Mendes was initially reluctant to return to make another Bond film. He was subsequently persuaded to do so by Daniel Craig, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson.
In order to get him back there was a three year gap between Skyfall and SPECTRE to allow him to undertake his other commitments. Sony was keen to push for a new Bond film every two years.
