Wes Anderson....

...does not want to make a James Bond movie. (Guardian)

Another idiosyncratic director, Baz Luhrmann, recently admitted that he wouldn't mind having a go at Bond. What would Anderson, a childhood Star Wars fan, have said if he'd been approached to take on the recently mobilised reboot? His reply ("Well, you know…") comes layered in qualification ("… as a very abstract idea…") but there is an answer, buried.
"I could entertain what I would say in that situation. And it's not like anyone's been pursuing me to do a 'part five' of anything, by the way. But no. It's really simple for me… I'd rather do my own thing. That's what I like to do."
