Mendes, who directed the most recent Bond film, 2012's Skyfall, previously said he would not be returning for the next film because he was occupied with other commitments, including a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory stage musical in London, according to Deadline.
Skyfall took in $1.1 billion worldwide and is the biggest Bond film to date. The next installment, which is yet to be titled, is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters on Nov. 6, 2015.
