Sam Mendes has new Bond story

Nov 20 2012, 4:02am CST | by

Departing James Bond screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade say Sam Mendes and writer John Logan have already come up with a story for the next film in the franchise.

Sam Mendes already has a story for Bond 24.
The 'Skyfall' filmmaker hasn't yet confirmed he will be returning to direct Daniel Craig in the next outing for the iconic spy, but screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade appeared to reveal he will be in a statement announcing they will be leaving the franchise after a five-film stint.
Robert said: ''We're very happy to have done five Bond movies. I think we've gotten it to a good place. I know that John Logan and Sam Mendes have come up with a plot for another one, which takes the pressure off because these films take up a lot of time.''
The duo worked on 'The World Is Not Enough', 'Die Another Day' and the three films which have starred Daniel, 'Casino Royale', 'Quantum of Solace' and 'Skyfall' and revealed they initially planned to step down after their fourth piece of work for the series.
Neal said: ''We were going to stop with 'Quantum of Solace', but it's good to go out on a high with 'Skyfall'.''
The pair also admitted they had been ''tempted'' to kill off Bond.
Asked what they are not allowed to do as Bond writers, Neal said: ''Time Travel''.
Robert added: ''And killing him off, although we have been tempted''.

‘Interstellar’ Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema Will Shoot ‘Bond 24′

Sep 17 2014 10:30am CDT | Source: slash film

Normally we’d have a large measure of sympathy for anyone who had to take over a job following Roger Deakins. And since Deakins isn’t shooting the new Bond film, someone has to step into his shoes. But the person to take over the job shooting Bond 24 is Hoyte van Hoytema, who did such a tremendous job with Her, and then shot Interstellar for Christopher Nolan. So things are probably going to work out just fine. There’s another good detai ...

It was something of a disappointment to hear that Deakins would not be returning to the fold after doing such a stellar job on Skyfall, although van Hoytema certainly comes with real pedigree. Having made waves with his work on the original Let The Right One In, he recently worked on both Tinker Tailer S ...
