Skyfall screenwriter John Logan is returning for Bond 24. Without giving away the plot, he had this to say about the upcoming James Bond film:
“All I can say about Bond is that I’m happily writing it. Director Sam Mendes would rappel through the window and kill me [if I said more].
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.”
He also talked about his love for the James Bond character and franchise:
“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.”
