Christopher Nolan will never make a comedy film.

The acclaimed director has revealed that he doesn't think he is cut out for the genre because it is so difficult to make people laugh.

The filmmaker explained: ''I would try anything, I think, except comedy or romantic comedy, those are very tough genres to work in.''

The 44-year-old director - who has just released space exploration movie 'Interstellar', which stars Matthew Mcconaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Sir Michael Caine - insists shooting a comedy would not film would not be a welcome challenge, because it is so easy for viewers to slate a comedy which isn't funny.

Talking to the USA Today newspaper, he added: ''They rely on a unanimity of audience response. You screen a comedy for people, and if they don't laugh, you've got to figure out a way to make them laugh.

''There's no hiding behind the art of the film. There's, 'Oh, you don't get it'.''

The writer-and-producer has worked on some of the most successful movies of the past decade, including 'Inception' and 'The Dark Knight' trilogy, and recently revealed that he has also been approached to work on James Bond movies.

He revealed to The Daily Beast: ''I love James Bond and I've talked with the producers over the years, but nothing's ever worked out,''

''They do a great job - they don't need me right now, and Sam [Mendes] is an extraordinary talent.

''I will absolutely be first in line to see the next Bond film as I have been for all of them.''
