London: Danny Boyle, who set the rumour mills spinning after the appearance of 007 in his Olympic opening ceremony, has dismissed speculation that he will direct a ‘James Bond’ movie.
Bond actor Daniel Craig had filmed a segment with The Queen for the ceremony, which the 56-year-old director had co-ordinated.
When asked on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row whether he would direct a full-length Bond movie, Boyle said, “No, I’m not very good with huge amounts of money.”
Boyle told interviewer Mark Lawson that his experience of directing ‘The Beach,’ starring Leonardo DiCaprio, had put him off making movies with big budgets.
“Don’t trust me with huge amounts of money anybody,” he said.
“I did a film, The Beach, which was a proper Hollywood scale budget and it didn’t suit me.
