While the pretty glowing reviews are still coming in—be sure to read our take—on Skyfall, the 23rd EON Productions James Bond film, and despite the fact that the film won’t even see a U.S. release until November 9, a new Bond film is already being written.
Yes, Bond 24 is already happening, and is currently being written by Skyfall co-writer John Logan. Logan’s solo script is already notable as this will be the first Bond film since The World is Not Enough that won’t feature work by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, according to /Film. Logan rewrote Purvis and Wade’s first submitted draft for Skyfall, and is now set to tackle Bond 24 on his own.
/Film also notes that Daniel Craig, Skyfall director Sam Mendes, and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson all had a hand in Skyfall’s script, and are all partly responsible for the new film’s extremely high quality. With Mendes likely out of the picture, and Purvis and Wade gone, it will be interesting to see if Logan will be able to maintain the sterling level of quality that runs through the newest film (please, please, please, just no invisible cars or trips into space).
You won’t be waiting too long to how it all turns out, either, as EON is aiming to have another Bond film in theaters by the fall of 2014.
