Sam Mendes was recently interviewed by the BBC for a programme about cricket, in which he also talked about James Bond and SPECTRE.
The programme, View from the Boundary: Sam Mendes, was broadcast on BBC 5 Live radio and for another 28 days you can listen online or download it as a podcast.
In the interview he tells Jonathan Agnew that he has no intention of making another Bond film after SPECTRE, although he said the same thing following the release of Skyfall, adding that making the Bond films is “more a lifestyle choice than a job”, as it takes over from everything else and between his two Bond films he has devoted five years.
Mendes also says SPECTRE is a bigger movie than Skyfall as it was shot in more locations and confirms that the theme song has already been recorded although he declines to reveal the artist. Perhaps the hints from Ellie Goulding that she recently recorded the song are true.
