John Logan Finalising Deal To Write Two Connecting JAMES BOND Films
Following reports from earlier today that John Logan will pen James Bond 24 for an Autumn 2014 release, a reliable source now confirms that he will write the screenplays for the next TWO films, making them the first in the franchise to have a connecting storyline. Read on for details!
Deadline reports that Skyfall producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson have made a deal with John Logan (the writer responsible for 007's latest outing and critically acclaimed films such as Gladiator and Hugo) to write the next two films in the James Bond franchise. He reportedly pitched a two-movie arc to them during production on Skyfall, and this would thereby make them the first Bond films to feature a connecting storyline. While Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace arguably already did this, it's fair to assume that this will be more of a direct continuation (telling one overarching story). The site go on to speculate that this could mean they'l shoot back-to-back, but it's still very early days at this point.
Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time. In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) 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.
