After helming critically acclaimed movies like 'The King's Speech' and 'Les Miserables', filmmaker Tom Hooper is interested in directing a James Bond picture.

The English director says serving behind the lens for a big franchise like 007 will be an honor for him, reported Aceshowbiz. "Oh I'd certainly be willing to talk about it. The 10-year-old in me would think there's probably no higher honor than talking about that.

I think (Bond producers) Barbara Broccoli and Michael are making some really interesting choices about who they use at the moment, so I think they've reinvigorated that franchise in a brilliant way," he said.

Asked if he'd be interested in directing a comic book or superhero movie, Hooper said, "I suppose I've always felt like I've had a kind of epic filmmaker hidden within me trying to get out and paint a world on a much bigger canvas.

"But in the end there is something in a comic book drama that you get to build a world from the ground up and follow a vision through physically, which I think is exciting," he added.
