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....
James Bond films encompass a variety of tones -- from the dark and deadly serious (Casino Royale) to pure camp (Thunderball), and everywhere in between. I see no reason to think that Nolan's sensibility wouldn't work with one of the darker, more earnest incarnations of the James Bond franchise.
