John Logan Teases 'Bond 24'

Skyfall

Production of the next James Bond movie is set for October this year, but the script is still being worked on, screenwriter John Logan said.

"Right now the first draft is almost done,” Logan told Empire. "I'm terrifically excited about it! I've been working very closely with Sam (Mendes), and it’s been joyous to pick up from our work on Skyfall and just continue on with the storytelling."

As for what we can expect in the next installment, Logan repeat what he said in previous interviews.

"The new movie continues the themes of Skyfall," Logan said. "Some of the characters and themes that we began to introduce in Skyfall will play out, I hope successfully, in the next movie...I have fifty years of movies – 23 movies and all the Ian Fleming novels and short stories, all of which are fodder. And when I'm working on the new Bond I'm constantly going back to Fleming and the other movies – what are the bits and pieces, what are the resonances?"

Obviously, he won't reveal any plot points or who's going to be in the movie, but he promises it's going to be bigger than Skyfall.

"You ain't seen nothing yet!" he said.

Bond 24 is scheduled for release on November 6, 2015, with Sam Mendes directing. Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, and Ben Whishaw are expected to return to reprise their roles.
