Director Sam Mendes says no to next James Bond film
LONDON (AP) - Never say never again? Sam Mendes says he won't be directing the next James Bond film - but may work on the series again in the future.
Mendes has been praised for his work on Skyfall, the first Bond film to rake in more than US$1 billion (S$1.25 billion) in revenue.
But Mendes says he has made the "very difficult decision" to focus on other projects "that need my complete focus over the next year and beyond".
They include upcoming London stage productions of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and King Lear.
