Italian newspaper “Il Messaggero” reported today that italian director Paolo Sorrentino could be in the mix to direct the new untitled Bond installment, set to be released in North America the 8th of November 2019.

Oscar winning Sorrentino is currently set to film the second season of the critically aclaimed tv series “The Young Pope”, well, sort of: HBO recently announced that they are going to produce a limited series called “New Pope”, making it higlhy unlikely for tv series star Jude Law.

Now Sorrentino seems to be in the mix to direct Bond 25, the day Yann Demange has reportedly been spooted at EON headquarter, making his nomination more likely. Sorrentino in the past said he would have been interested in directing a Bond movie.
