James Bond 24 Script Update
James Bond, it was only a matter of time that this icon would come to this website. Everybody in the world knows James Bond and that is saying something. I think there's only a few filmsaround that everbody has seen at one time or another or in this case, an installment at one time or another.
Part 24 is in the making after the overwhelming succes of Skyfall, which is by far the best and high grossed Bond films ever. Empire Magazine had the chance of sitting down with screenwriter for Bond 24, John Logan, and he did confirm a couple of details about the film’s progress.
“Right now the first draft is almost done,” he 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. The new movie continues the themes of Skyfall. Some of the characters and themes that we began to introduce in Skyfall will play out, I hope successfully, in the next movie.”
Empire continued with the following question: What many fans are wondering, though, is whether any themes or specific elements from Casino Royale or Quantum Of Solace might be present in the new film – particularly a certain nefarious organisation who remained absent from Skyfall
“There might be! Honestly, not being evasive, but the great thing about Bond is that 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? One of the things we learned in Skyfall is that the audience really enjoyed those, they enjoyed when they saw the Aston Martin, they enjoyed when we had references to things they grew up with, either from Ian Fleming or from the other movies, and that’s always been a part of my thinking about Bond."
As to whether or not the next Bond will be just as big as Skyfalll the Jonh Logan said: "You ain’t seen nothing yet!”
