Last week we reported that John Logan ("Gladiator"), who did a pass on Neal Purvis and Robert Wade's screenplay for the upcoming James Bond franchise offering "Skyfall", has been tapped to pen the script for "Bond 24". It was being reported that Logan would in fact be writing the next two Bond films, which would contain a continuous storyline.
007 himself, Daniel Craig, has denied the rumors of a two-film arc, however.
"No, I don't know where that's come from," Craig said in a recent interview with Filmstarts. "It's impossible to do a two parter, I heard that someone was talking about that we're doing a two parter, but that's the first I've heard about it. We can only do them one at a time, they take six months to shoot. You can't write one movie thinking about the next. All we're trying to do is get the next one sorted out and it'll stand on its own and if I'm able I'll do another one after that."
The, as yet untitled, "Bond 24" is aiming to begin production at Pinewood Studios next fall with a tentative fall 2014 release date.
Daniel Craig is back as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
