Sam Mendes Says 'Spectre' Will Be His Last James Bond Movie
Even though he directed the highest grossing James Bond movie in history with Skyfall, director Sam Mendes has made it be known that the upcoming twenty fourth Bond movie, Spectre, will be his last.
"I said no to the last one and then ended up doing it, and was pilloried by all my friends," Mendes tells the BBC. "But I do think this is probably it…I don’t think I could go down that road again. You do have to put everything else on hold."
Speaking about the scope and size of the upcoming film, Mendes also offered a tease for fans, "This is a bigger movie than Skyfall. It’s shot in more places – we were in Mexico City and Tangiers and northern Sahara and Rome and the Alps and London. It’s been an enormous undertaking."
A staple of all Bond movies is theme song and the director also confirmed the song for the film has already been recorded and it will be officially revealed soon."I can say that the song’s been recorded and it’s fantastic and I’m very excited about it," he said. "You won’t have to wait long."
