Chiwetel Ejiofor wowed audiences with his stirring and hard-to-watch performance in Steve McQueen's Oscar-winning '12 Years a Slave,' and now, naturally, he's on multiple studios' radars for major upcoming films. While he's previously been rumored to be up for 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' word is he's now being eyed to play the new James Bond villain in the upcoming 'Bond 24.'

Though the franchise was successful under Pierce Brosnan's run, when Daniel Craig became James Bond the series got a new life and a rebooting, with 'Casino Royale' starting just as Bond received his license to kill. The series has done a lot of work to integrate previous Bond lore with its more modern approach (and recently re-introduced Miss Moneypenny), but now it seems the path is clear for Bond's most famous nemesis Blofeld to return to the series.

A couple weeks ago, we were privy to the exciting news that Penelope Cruz was set to follow in her hubby Javier Bardem's footsteps and share the screen with James Bond. Cruz as a Bond Girl? Who's going to argue with that, right? Well, prepare to wake up from this pleasant dream, folks, because it doesn't appear to be happening after all.

Despite frequently and loudly saying that he would not return to the James Bond franchise, it looks like 'Skyfall' director Sam Mendes has been roped in for another one. Well, another two, actually.
A new report claims that Mendes is back on board the James Bond train for 'Bond 24' and likely 'Bond 25,' following some pretty extensive negotiations.

Hot off the premiere of 'Only God Forgives' at the Cannes film festival comes word that the film's director Nicolas Winding Refn might be helming the next James Bond film. Does this mean we'll get a little appearance from Ryan Gosling in a future 007 flick?

It was just a few weeks ago that Sam Mendes officially announced he wouldn't return to direct 'Bond 24' (what's more, he said the mere thought of returning to direct another James Bond film made him "physically ill") but producers aren't wasting any time finding a replacement. But how do you top 'Skyfall' - the biggest Bond film of all-time and a movie that made over $1 billion? You hire 'The Dark Knight' director Christopher Nolan.

Many of us loved the latest James Bond movie, 'Skyfall,' which reflects in the film's $1 billion worldwide box office, but the film is something its director, Sam Mendes, does not want to repeat. We all know (or rather should know by now) that he doesn't have plans to return for the next 007 movie -- in fact, the very thought of doing so makes him "physically ill."

A few weeks ago we learned that 'Skyfall' director Sam Mendes would not be returning for Bond 24,  which was a bit shocking considering the enormous financial and critical success of the latest James Bond adventure. However, Bond franchise producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson aren't letting him go too easy: they say he'll be back...just not yet.
