Dee Rees says she'd direct a James Bond film starring 'Mudbound' actor Garrett Hedlund

Dee Rees’ film, Mudbound, is getting all the buzz at the Toronto International Film Festival as it has a mighty good chance to bring home Oscars upon its Netflix debut in November.

In a Variety cover story with Rees and Mudbound actors Carey Mulligan and Mary J. Blige, Rees talked about her stars, and mentioned Garrett Hedlund should be the next James Bond.

When asked if she’d direct that film, she responded, “I totally would.”

Watch the video below:

Mudbound premieres at TIFF this weekend and on Netflix on November 17.
