Skyfall co-writer John Logan as reportedly been hired to write the 24th James Bond film that is tentatively scheduled for an autumn 2014 release.
Although the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, was released in foreign markets on Friday, word has it that screenwriter John Logan (Gladiator, Last Samurai) will return to write the 24th Bond film, which is slated for release in 2014.
As reported by The Daily Mail, although the original Skyfall screenplay was co-written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, Skyfall director Sam Mendes and producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli brought John Logan on board to make changes to the script.
To date, Bond 24 plot details have not been released but The Daily Mail adds that Skyfall cast-members Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Ralph Fiennes are set to begin negotiations over the next few months.
In Skyfall, Daniel Craig returns to the role of James Bond for a story in which Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, Bond must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
Back in September, it was reported that Daniel Craig had signed on for two more James Bond movies and that screenwriters would soon be developing both films with Craig still attached. Based on the latest news about John Logan, soon is now here since movement on Bond 24 has started.
Early reviews for Skyfall have been extremely positive, with some critics hailing the action sequences as some of the best in Bond history.
