^Interestingly enough, many have readily compared Nolan to Alfred Hitchcock. (I am one of them, BTW.) I recall reading that the great Hitch almost
directected the first Bond film, which would've had Carey Grant as Bond. For whatever reason, though, nothing came of that.
Still...can Nolan be sufficiently "witty"--lighthearted--to do a Bond film? Hitch could, but...I'm not sure if Nolan is a little too much to "dark", style-wise....
