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 detail in the  ...

Bond 24 finds replacement for Roger Deakins

Sep 17 2014 12:46am CDT | Source: Total Film

Bond 24 looks to have found a replacement for cinematographer Roger Deakins, with Dutchman Hoyte van Hoytema set to sign on as director of photography. 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 Soldier Spy and Her, and wa ...

HER and INTERSTELLAR Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema to Replace Roger Deakins on BOND 24; May Shoot on Film

Sep 16 2014 7:48pm CDT | Source: Collider

It was incredibly disappointing to hear that cinematographer Roger Deakins would not be returning for Bond 24 after doing such a stunning job on Skyfall.  However, as production on the next Bond installment is poised to get underway in December, director Sam Mendes has now settled on Deakins’ replacement, and it’s an excellent choice.  In Contention reports that Hoyte van Hoytema will be the cinematographer on Bond 24, marking yet another ...

‘Bond 24′ Will Shoot in December

Sep 15 2014 3:30pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Sony could’ve followed up the massive success of Skyfall with a quickie sequel. Instead, they’ve taken their time getting the right cast, crew, and story together. (Including Skyfall director Sam Mendes.) Now, two years after Skyfall first landed in theaters, they’ve finally set a date to start shooting Bond 24. According to a new report making the rounds, the new adventure will enter production in December for release next fall. Hit ...

Bond 24 henchman to be a physical adversary for Daniel Craig?

Aug 25 2014 3:37am CDT | Source: Total Film

Bond 24 could see 007 confronted with one of the more physical villains he has faced in recent years, with one of the chief antagonists set to be a Jaws-esque brute. According to fan site MI6, the production team are searching for an actor to play what they describe as “the main assassin”, with the primary requirement being that they must be physically imposing. Successful applicants will need to be at least 6’ 2” in height, while the report notes tha ...

BOND 24 Villain Could Be a Bigger Adversary for Daniel Craig

Aug 23 2014 12:34pm CDT | Source: Collider

I’m one of the people who thought Skyfall was an incredible Bond film.  Between that and Casino Royale (I sort of consider Quantum of Solace to be an interstitial film, almost a short) I actually feel like James Bond is almost a current, relevant character (despite some of the old-fashioned fan service).  So I remain excited for Bond 24 even though it feels like something of a troubled production (the delays, the extensive reworking of the script etc…) be ...

"Bond 24" Wants A Henchman, Austrian Locale

Aug 23 2014 11:57am CDT | Source: dark horizons

Whilst "Skyfall" saw the return of some of the more iconic elements of the James Bond franchise, one element that was missing is that of an iconic henchman - the last one arguably being Famke Janssen's Xenia Onatopp in "Goldeneye". A new report over at James Bond Radio claims that the twenty-fourth Bond film's director Sam Mendes is aiming to fill that gap and is looking for just such an ac ...
