Danny Boyle rules out directing James Bond movie

Danny Boyle has ruled out directing any James Bond movies in the future.

The 127 Hours filmmaker has said that he has no plans to make a full-length version of the 007 spy series, after he directed Daniel Craig as Bond for the Olympics Opening Ceremony.

Daniel Craig starred in a short film as Bond for the London 2012 Olympics, which also featured a cameo from The Queen.

When asked if he would ever direct a proper Bond film, he told BBC Radio 4's Front Row: "No, I'm not very good with huge amounts of money."

Boyle also revealed that directing The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio had put him off working on films with large budgets.

"Don't trust me with huge amounts of money, anybody," he said. "I did a film, The Beach, which was a proper Hollywood-scale budget and it didn't suit me.

"Certain people can handle that and I love watching those kinds of films, but I'm much better with a smaller amount of money and trying to make it go a long way."

Danny Boyle is currently working on the thriller Trance with James McAvoy, which is expected for a spring 2013 release.

Sam Mendes directed the latest Bond movie Skyfall, with Kevin Spacey recently stating he would like to play a villain if Mendes remains.
