Danny Boyle Turns Down Knighthood And James Bond

You may be used to Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Ben Kingsley, but you won’t be getting Sir Danny Boyle.

The Sunday Times reports that Trainspotting director Danny Boyle was approached by Royal officials for the New Year’s Honour List, after the all-bit-unanimously positive reaction to his Olympic Opening Ceremony in London this year. But he declined, stating that the event for which he was being honoured for was about the equality of the citizens of Britain and that a knighthood would make him unequal.

Brendon’s update: He also told the BBC’s Front Row this week that he wouldn’t want to direct a James Bond film either. I think that covers both of the obvious repercussions of this Olympics short.
