Quentin Tarantino has said he wouldn't want to direct a Bond film.

The Django Unchained filmmaker revealed his desire to helm Casino Royale and turn it into a period piece with Pierce Brosnan reprising his role as the famed agent, but the job went to Martin Campbell, who cast Daniel Craig as 007.

Asked if he would still like to put his stamp on the Bond film franchise in the future, the director told Wegotthiscovered.com: "No. Casino Royale was the one I wanted to direct - they missed their opportunity."

Quentin also cast doubts on making a third instalment of Kill Bill, which starred Uma Thurman as the sword-wielding, vengeful assassin.

"I don't know if there's ever going to be a Kill Bill Vol 3. We'll see, probably not though," he added.
