The 39-year-old actor and 46-year-old director have now made three movies together in the form of Inception, The Dark Knight Rises and now Dunkirk.
While a rumour has surfaced that Daniel Craig will sign on for a fifth James Bond outing, both Tom Hardy and Christopher Nolan are tipped as a new team.
Not only is Hardy the currently favourite to be the next 007 at 3/1, but Nolan has been in talks to direct Bond at some point in the future.
Nolan said: “He’d be amazing. He really would.
The director was also asked about his previous comments that he’d had talks with Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson.
He added: “I’d love to work with them at some point … [but] I’d have to be needed.
“I think they’ve got a really good thing going.”
Nevertheless, back in May Nolan’s production company Syncopy was listed as having Bond 25 as a project in development – so maybe he’s just being coy?
Dunkirk is out now in UK cinemas.
