Out of all the British directors currently working, I would really struggle to think of a worse choice.

Even worldwide, he's right at the bottom of my heap.

Guy Ritchie relies on gimmicks too much. That last Sherlock Holmes film was dire

I actually think the Sherlock Holmes films are some of his more defensible ones. The films of his that would really worry me are the god-awful street crime ones. That one called "Rock n Rolla", I think (?) where it's treated so melodramatically it descends into some misguided ghetto gospel - that was just appalling.

Bond needs someone who can do class - Tom Hooper would be a great choice.

Good god, I'd hope not - Ritchie is a total and utter hack.

I also hope not. His screenplay and framing is too flash.

No. Not unless the Broccolis want Bond as some sort of mockney 'geezer' sortin' aart 'trouble' etc.

Bond is a producers property, first and foremost. So certain directors - the more unique, interpretive kind, shall we say - are usually out (Mendes' star had fallen somewhat when he got the gig, remember).

I too suggested Tom Hooper in the Skyfall thread. Another I heard was Alfonso Cuaron (The Children of Men), whose long-awaited Gravity is with us soon. That too would make an interesting choice.

He'd crossed my mind actually, but I ruled him out because of how long he's been off the scene. I didn't know about his new film, I'll keep an eye on that, thanks!

Yeah, yeah, I'm geezer. You looking at me - I'll clock you one Blofeld. Your going have one of my trotters in your face.

I say, step forward JJ Abrams - again! Hey, why not? He already has two franchises in his hands.

The Stath, surely? Getting into over-choreographed homo-erotic fights whilst finding inventive ways to strip off.

That will never happen, even mentioning him in a list of possibilities shows how dum the list is.

Meh I'm ok with it as long as he has no involvement in the writing. To be honest I thought Sherlock Holmes 2 was actually directed and looked visually good. His others not so much.

Guy Richie = Good director + bloody awful script writer.

Keep him away from writing duties and he'll surprise a few people.

Well if he could rope Ray Winstone in as the main vilain then it might be an idea

But otherwise no no no!

Hmmm, James Bond by Guy Ritchie...

The Bond Car will be a Mk3 Vauxhall Cavalier SRi.

The film locations will range from Brixton to Hackney via Peckham and, possibly, include a trip to Southend (for the glamour).

Bond's Walther will be replaced by a sawn-off shotgun.

The arch villain will be Vinnie Jones.

Bond's wardrobe will, erm, actually be pretty-much the same as what Daniel Craig already wears.

Seriously?
God, Ray Winstone is a total one trick pony who has somehow managed to pull the wool over the eyes of the general public.

Exhibit A: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
