Suggestions Of A Two-Part Story Arc
It is being reported that while Skyfall is being released to universal acclaim and enormous box office, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson have quietly signed Skyfall scribe John Logan to pen the next two Bond films. What's even more notable is that the story he has successfully pitched is apparently to be told over two films.
Screenwriter John Logan hasn't really written very much else...apart from well, let's see; Any Given Sunday, Gladiator, The Last Samurai, The Aviator, Rango, Hugo etc..., so if he has convinced EON to venture into new territory, the idea he has suggested must be exceptional.
The questions pile up. Will they be shot back to back? By the same director? If so, who will be willing and able to match the brilliance of Sam Mendes' offering? Could it be Chris Nolan, who has no directing projects scheduled at the moment?
With the 44 year old Daniel Craig having signed on for two more post-Skyfall outings as Bond, could this two-parter be his denouement as 007?
With Skyfall giving the franchise a renewed confidence and vigour, any news on the next two Bond films will be hugely anticipated.
