"Oh I'd certainly be willing to talk about [James Bond]," he told Collider.

"The 10-year-old in me would think there's probably no higher honour than talking about that... I think [Bond producers] Barbara Broccoli and Michael [G. Wilson] are making some really interesting choices about who they use at the moment, so I think they've reinvigorated that franchise in a brilliant way."

The Oscar-winning King's Speech director was also asked if he would consider tackling a blockbuster comic book adaptation.

"I suppose I've always felt like I've had a kind of epic filmmaker hidden within me trying to get out, and John Adams was my first opportunity to sort of paint a world on a much bigger canvas which I felt very grateful for," he said.

"But in the end there is something in a comic book drama that you get to build a world from the ground up and follow a vision through physically, which I think is exciting. I don't know, we'll have to see."

Les Misérables will debut on January 11, 2013 in the UK and December 25, 2012 in the US.
