Director may be tempted back
After helming the biggest,and one of the most acclaimed Bond movies ever, it's no surprise that EON were keen for Sam Mendes to return for the next Bond production. And they may yet succeed.
Screenwriter John Logan originally had plans to make Bonds 24 and 25 a two part story, and perhaps have them shot back to back. However, this huge commitment was said to have disuaded Mendes from signing on, with the result that the next movie will indeed be a stand-alone film.
Mendes is currently working on a couple of theatre projects while waiting to see a finished script but assuming he is happy with the result, he is apparently '75% likely' to sign on.
Good news for all Skyfall fans. Which was pretty much everyone.
