Director Sam Mendes, known for directing the last James Bond project Skyfall, is currently busy with another 007 project – Spectre. However, the 49-year-old director clearly doesn’t wish to direct any more James Bond films in the near future, once Spectre hits the screens on November 6, 2015.

During a brief interaction with the scribes, Mendes expressed his desire to return to theater work. He added that he didn’t want to helm the last James Bond film either but was coaxed by his friends into doing it. Having said that, he pointed out that doing two 007 movies in five years is certainly a great experience for him, but would now like to move on to theater work.

The talented director, who was once married to Kate Winslet, from 2003 to 2010, said that he wishes to go away from the chaotic movie schedule and spend some time in the theater environment, but stressed that he would definitely be back to do another film.

He also apologized to all who may have suffered because of the film shoot and traffic around Westminster Bridge over the last few weeks, as the upcoming Bond film has turned out to be an enormous undertaking.
