Danny Boyle on Bond: It's not for me

London - Danny Boyle has ruled himself out of directing the next James Bond movie.

The Trance filmmaker has insisted he has no interest in taking over the spy franchise from recently departed Skyfall director Sam Mendes as he prefers working on smaller movies with strict budgets.

Asked whether he would consider directing the upcoming thriller at a 92YTribeca Q&A in New York City, he said: "No, I much prefer to have a ceiling. A ceiling that is limiting us and you try and break through."

The director explained that he likes to work under the pressure of a tight budget and couldn't work on a big blockbuster movie like Bond.

He said: "We want our films to look like $100 million, that's for sure. And we want them to sound like $200m. But you try and do that with that cap on them. And that's where the energy, belief and evangelical nature of the process comes from."

Boyle joked he has already created his own 007 film, referring to his epic London 2012 Games opening ceremony last summer, which featured Bond actor Daniel Craig perform a sketch with Britain's Queen Elizabeth.

He added: "It's not for me, I'm afraid. Because of the Bond thing in the Olympics, I visited the [Skyfall] set a few times and saw Sam [Mendes], Barbara Broccoli, Michael Wilson and Daniel Craig and everybody.

"They're different kinds of films, you know? They're huge. They're just huge. They wouldn't get the best out of me, doing that sort of thing."
