James Bond 25 Reportedly Being Produced by Christopher Nolan's Syncopy

According to a new report, Christopher Nolan's company Syncopy is producing the upcoming Bond 25. Could Nolan be in line to direct?

Christopher Nolan is the highest paid director

A new report claims writer-director Christopher Nolan's Syncopy is the production company for Bond 25. After Nolan reinvigorated the superhero franchise with Batman Begins in 2005 and the film's first sequel, The Dark Knight, became a worldwide blockbuster in 2008, it basically gave the filmmaker the clout in Hollywood to make any film he wanted. As a result, fans have been treated to brilliant explorations of the mind with Inception, and the boundaries of space and time with Interstellar.

In the middle of making new films and promoting them, Nolan has made no secret in the past that he's wanted to direct a James Bond film. And if a new listing on IMDb Pro is accurate, the filmmaker may be one step closer to making it happen. According to a tweet from Birth.Movies.Death editor-at-large Phil Noble Jr., IMDb Pro lists Syncopy as the production company for Bond 25. And while Noble first viewed the listing as "nonsense," a little digging by James Bond fan account @Bond25film suggested otherwise. The account says it contacted IMDb Pro verify the listing's authenticity, and the company said the listing was accurate. Here are the tweets:
