While most of the most-anticipated blockbusters of the next two years involve cyborgs, people in capes, dinosaurs, time-travelers, or people who drive cars super-fast, two of the films we’re looking forward to the most are the as-yet untitled Bond 24 and Bond 25, the two remaining James Bond films in which Daniel Craig is contractually-obligated to star in following the excellent Skyfall—especially now that Skyfall scribe John Logan has indicated the two films will build on the last Bond film.
In an interview with IGN (via Total Film), Logan noted that his goal “is to write a great movie that’s appropriate, to build on what we did on Skyfall, but make it its own unique animal… the themes, ideas and the characters from Skyfall can obviously continue on, because it is a franchise, and it is an ongoing story. So I think there’s resonance from Skyfall in the new movie.”
Further, Logan was pressed as to whether or not classic James Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld would finally make an appearance in the Craig continuity, as Bond production company Eon finally has regained the rights to the character. Logan, however, played it cagey: “You know, I think our villain’s appropriate to the story we’re telling.”
Bond 24 is set for an October 23, 2015 release date.
