It's a pity how often it happens where a director whom you want to stay leaves after one film and yet a director whom you can't wait until he leaves a franchise stays for multiple films (cough....Michael Bay....cough).
Regardless who takes the reigns, he or she is going to have a tough act to follow. It doesn't help that part of the reason Skyfall worked so well was that it capitilized on the nostalgia the 50th aniversary brought to the franchise, something that's not going to be present in the next film.

I'm sure with all the recognition, huge critical praise and amazing box office performance they won't bring in some hack of a director. They have the chance to capitalize on all of that and get another well respected director in.

They had no problem destroying the Die Hard franchise by hiring poor directors and writers. So don't bet on it.

Spielberg and Tarantino have expressed interest (long ago) to direct a Bond film. Not that it'll happen. I bet it'll be Joe Carnahan.
