TMT wrote:James Bond Will Return in The Year Two Thousand & Fourteen

This week is CinemaCon and since we're not there (Alas we have day jobs!), you won't be seeing us giving our commentary on footage like The Dark Knight Rises and Oh my God awesome it was, how the 48 frames-per-second decision left many speechless over The Hobbit, and not in a good way or how wonderfully retro the 8-bit centric Wreck-It Ralph sounds.

Anyway last night was Sony's turn to wow exhibitors and there doesn't seem to be anyone in the crowd who didn't flip for the forthcoming James Bond movie Skyfall. Before a frame was shown Sony let it be known when the end credits close out with the traditional "James Bond Will Return" text, 2014 is when to expect just that.

Guess this means Eon is getting back into the swing of things with the standard two-year gap between films. To think there was a dark period where it looked like Quantum of Solace was Daniel Craig's swan-song from the tuxedo and martinis, shaken not stirred. Assuming this means it will be indeed be Craig walking through that gun-barrel the year after next?

The two year cycle returns so better to start the thread early because the film is obviously on the way. ;)

Moviehole wrote:Daniel Craig to return for two more 007 movies

Daniel Craig will play James Bond in a further two films after this year’s “Skyfall”, MI6 reported today.

Craig has been contracted by EON Productions to play Ian Fleming’s popular spy in 5 films in total, beginning with 2006′s “Casino Royale”.

The actor, whose third stint as 007 hits cinemas in November, has two more films to do, those being the 24th and 25th films in the James Bond franchise.

Craig, exhausted from the physical-demands of “Skyfall”, has said he wants to take a break before beginning another Bond movie; Sony may have other plans with whispers suggesting a 2014 release could be on the cards for Bond 24.

Awesome. 8-)

Worst Previews wrote:Next Two "James Bond" Films Announce Writer and Release Plan

Back in September, it was revealed that Daniel Craig signed a contract to play James Bond in at least two more movies. Now comes word that John Logan (Skyfall, Gladiator) has been hired to write both of those installments.

"Bond 24" and "Bond 25" will be parts of the same story, which has been described as original and not based on the works of Ian Fleming. The plan is to begin filming "Bond 24" next fall at Pinewood Studios and then have it in theaters during the fall of 2014. No word if both installments will be shot together or whether director Sam Mendes will return.

EON Productions, the owner of the James Bond property, recently stated that the goal is to make a new James Bond movie every two years, starting with 2014. So expect "Bond 25" to follow in 2016.

Worst Previews wrote:Producers Want Christopher Nolan for Future James Bond Film

Back in June, "The Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan revealed that he would love an opportunity to direct an installment in the James Bond franchise, but cautioned that it would have to be "the right situation and the right time."

Now in an interview with DigitalSpy, Gregg Wilson, who is an associate producer on "Skyfall" and the son of long-time James Bond producer Michael G. Wilson, has revealed that there is strong interest in having Nolan direct a future Bond film. "We would be interested to have a discussion with him," said Wilson. "It would be a dream to be with Nolan."

Sam Mendes recently stated that he will likely not return after "Skyfall," but hinted that it won't be impossible to convince him otherwise. In other words, if "Skyfall" is a hit and Mendes is paid enough money, he would return.

Mendes previously said that "Skyfall" is heavily influenced by Nolan's "The Dark Knight."

Worst Previews wrote:Sam Mendes May Not Direct Another James Bond Film

Metro caught up with director Sam Mendes to talk about "Skyfall," the upcoming James Bond film. He explained that he isn't a fan of all Bond movies, especially the ones that have lack of racial diversity. He also feels that Daniel Craig brought Bond back to his thriller roots and gave the character a reason to exist.

Regarding returning for future installments, Mendes said that "Skyfall" will likely be his last. "It's been a fantastic experience, but it's been completely exhausting," he explained. "Do I want to do another one? No, I don't know."

He continued: "I felt like everything I wanted to do with a Bond movie, I put into this film. So I would have to be convinced that I could do something that I loved and cared about as much."

TMT wrote:Sam Mendes Likes The Sound of Directing Next Bond

He's been back and forth on whether he will stay put in the world of James Bond post-Skyfall. But when your installment is the highest grosser in history (Even beating fellow juggernauts The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Amazing Spider-Man globally) and viewed by many as the best, that changes perspective. Money talks, perhaps?

The Daily Mail reports Sam Mendes is "75 per cent" leaning towards returning to direct. A major contributor to his change of heart is reportedly the decision to nix the two-film plan by screenwriter John Logan, sticking to the tried-and-true standalone formula. Hey if it's worked for 50 years, why change course?

If Mendes approves the script (It currently exists in a two-page treatment form), work will commence late this year or at the start of 2014 to make its projected, but yet to be officially announced, November 2014 release.

Worst Previews wrote:Sam Mendes Rejects Offer to Direct Next "James Bond" Film

It was recently reported that "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes would return for a new James Bond movie. But apparently he changed his mind, because he has now confirmed that he has turned down the offer to direct the next installment.

"It has been a very difficult decision not to accept [producers] Michael and Barbara's very generous offer to direct the next Bond movie," he explained. "Directing 'Skyfall' was one of the best experiences of my professional life, but I have theater and other commitments, including productions of 'Charlie And The Chocolate Factory' and 'King Lear,' that need my complete focus over the next year and beyond."

"Skyfall" was the first James Bond film to break the $1 billion mark, which is why it's not surprising that producers would want Sam Mendes back. "We thoroughly enjoyed working with Sam, he directed our most successful Bond movie ever, 'Skyfall,'" said the producers. "We would have loved to have made the next film with him but completely respect his decision to focus on other projects."

Worst Previews wrote:Danny Boyle Won't Direct Next "James Bond" Film

Back when Danny Boyle was promoting "127 Hours," he was looking forward to working on the Olympics opening ceremony and a new play, but promised that as soon as he was done, he would get to work on "28 Months Later." That never happened, because the director moved on to making his "Trance" movie.

So now that Sam Mendes dropped out of directing a follow up to "Skyfall," many are looking at Boyle to take over the franchise, especially since he directed Daniel Craig in a James Bond promo for the Olympics.

But according to Boyle, he has no interest in the franchise. "It's not for me," he revealed. "Because of the Bond thing in the Olympics, I visited the ['Skyfall'] set a few times and saw Sam, [producer] Barbara Broccoli, [producer] Michael Wilson and Daniel Craig and everybody. They're different kinds of films. They’re huge. They're just huge. They wouldn't get the best out of me, doing that sort of thing."

Worst Previews wrote:"Skyfall" Producers Say Director Sam Mendes Will Return

Earlier this month, "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes revealed that he will not return to helm the next James Bond film. But in a new interview, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson said that will make sure to bring Mendes back.

"We haven't given up hope. Maybe not for the next one, but we will get him back again," said Broccoli. Wilson added: "We are working on him. We hope that maybe he will have gotten inspired to come back."

It's no surprise that they want Mendes to return, since "Skyfall" is the highest-grossing James Bond film and the first to break the $1 billion mark.

It turns out that Mendes isn't completely against directing another installment. "I've definitely left the door open," he said. "I've never really repeated myself, done the same type of movie one after the other, so just give me a chance to think about what I actually want to say."

SuperheroHype wrote:Screenwriter John Logan Talks James Bond 24

Little is known about the upcoming 24th James Bond film, but we do know that Daniel Craig will be back as the titular hero along with Skyfall director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan. In a recent interview with IGN, Logan spoke about what the creative team is hoping to accomplish with the film and where they're drawing inspiration from.

"My goal is to write a great movie that's appropriate, to build on what we did on Skyfall, but make it its own unique animal. The themes, ideas and the characters from Skyfall can obviously continue on, because it is a franchise, and it is an ongoing story. So I think there's resonance from Skyfall in the new movie."

Speaking about his lifelong love for the franchise, Logan also says the new film will feature elements from all across Bond's history.

"I grew up on the Bond movies, The first one I saw was Diamonds Are Forever, when I was a kid. I just loved them to pieces. I love all the elements, from the books — mostly from the novels; going back to Ian Fleming is where I started with Skyfall — and there's certainly elements of the movies and the novels that we've brought into the new movie, as they did into Skyfall."

It was recently announced that MGM's long standing lawsuit with the Kevin McClory estate over several fixtures of the James Bond mythos, including arch-nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld and SPECTRE, has come to a close. When asked if the character and his organization might appear in the upcoming film, Logan replied:

"You know, I think our villain's appropriate to the story we're telling."

The film is set for release in UK theaters on October 23, 2015 and in US theaters on November 6, 2015. What are you hoping to see in the upcoming 24th Bond film?

Worst Previews wrote:John Travolta Says He May Play Villain in Next James Bond Film

When John Travolta was one of the biggest actors in Hollywood, his dream was to one day play a James Bond villain. And now that his career is on a serious decline, he may actually get his chance.

"I would love that," he said. "They're going a different way with their villain in this next film but I've spoken to [producer] Barbara Broccoli about it and she loves the idea, so that would be great."

Broccoli is one of the main people involved with the James Bond franchise, which means that if she wants Travolta in the movie, she can make it happen. But is this something that director Sam Mendes (Skyfall) would want?

Doubtful but i'm not against it.

Worst Previews wrote:Writer Says Script for "Skyfall" Sequel is Almost Done

Empire magazine had the chance to speak to "Skyfall" writer John Logan about the next installment in the James Bond franchise, which will also bring back Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes.

"Right now the first draft is almost done," Logan revealed. "I'm terrifically excited about it. I've been working very closely with Sam, 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."

When asked if the nefarious organization seen in "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace" will be present in the film, the writer replied: "[It] might be."

Logan went on to confirm that the plan is to begin shooting in October, but refused to talk about whether Craig's new two-picture contract means that the next story will be a two-parter. "I'm just trying to get one done first. If I survive this one, we'll see about the next one," he said.

And finally, when asked if the new installment will be as big as "Skyfall," which broke $1 billion at the worldwide box office, Logan replied: "You ain't seen nothing yet!"

The new movie is set to hit theaters on November 6th, 2015.

Awesome. 8-)
