John Logan wrote the first Bond 24 script and then in June of this year fellow Skyfall screenwriters, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, were brought in to polish it up. Now the script is in the hands of Butterworth, who was part of team (Christopher McQuarrie & John-Henry Butterworth) that wrote the screenplay for Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow. Butterworth also polished the Skyfall script, but he did not receive a writing credit.

BOND 24 will be directed by Sam Mendes ("Skyfall"), from a screenplay written by John Logan. The cast will include: Daniel Craig as James Bond (007), Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny, and Ben Whishaw as Q. The film will be released in the UK and US on October 23, 2015 and November 6, 2015, respectively.
