James Bond favourite Christopher Nolan backs Tom Hardy to replace Daniel Craig

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.

During press for Dunkirk, the director appeared on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused where he endorsed Hardy to be James Bond.

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.
