Arrow Steven Spielberg. James Bond. Indiana Jones.

This is super duper old news, but for the sake of discussing something, here ya go:

It's hard to believe we once lived in a world where people said "No" to Steven Spielberg.

The director of such action adventure hits as "Minority Report," "Jurassic Park" and, of course, "Raiders of the Lost Ark" seems like he would be a shoo-in to call the shots on a James Bond movie. But back in the late 1970s -- before he had proven himself as the most bankable filmmaker of all time -- Spielberg couldn't score his dream gig.

"I went to [Bond producer] Cubby Broccoli and I asked if I could do one and he said 'No,'" said Spielberg in an interview with The Daily Mail. "I've never asked again. Instead, I made the Indiana Jones series."

Quote:
Despite being rejected from Her Majesty's Secret Service back in the '70s, Steven Spielberg remains a big James Bond fan ... and is especially fond of the latest 007 adventure, "Skyfall."

"I've seen it once and I'll see it a second time," he said. Hey, us too!

To expand on what Yahoo reported, Spielberg wanted to direct For Your Eyes Only, which was originally intended to be the follow-up to The Spy Who Loved Me. But, of course, once Star Wars became the biggest hit of all-time, Moonraker was chosen instead. And in hindsight, Spielberg would have been ideal for Moonraker. That could have actually been a good movie.

Would have loved to see Spielberg got a shot at Bond...I suppose it technically could still happen.

Spielberg is too old and has too many projects in the pipelines. It'll never happen. Christopher Nolan, on the other hand..........

He said it satisfied his desire to do a Howard Hughes biopic. Bond is still on his checklist I believe.
