Rumor: The Night Manager director being eyed to helm next James Bond film

Bond 25 Susanne Bier Banner

It remains to be seen if Daniel Craig is actually finished playing James Bond, however we do know that Sam Mendes, who was behind the camera for SKYFALL and SPECTRE, definitely won't be back to direct the 25th installment of the franchise, and now Radio Times is claiming they've heard that The Night Manager director Susanne Bier is one of the leading to contenders to helm the next Bond movie.

Sources tell RT that Bier "is among a 'handful' of names making up producer Barbara Broccoli’s shortlist to inherit the directing gig from Mendes," and if she lands the gig it would make her the first woman ever to direct a Bond flick.

Tom Hiddleston might be in talks to replace Craig as 007, and - surprise, surprise - Bier recently directed Hiddleston in the critically acclaimed BBC/AMC miniseries, so it's possible that the magazine is just reaching here. But even so, what are your thoughts on Bier reportedly being eyed to direct the next Bond film?
