This summer's been eventful for the Bond series – we've learnt that despite his misgivings, Sam Mendes will be back in the driver’s seat as director for the 24th film in the Bond series and that Daniel Craig would be reprising his role. While little has been confirmed with regards to the film's plot, recently Daniel Craig opened up to Vulture about a return to a more similar tone to older Bond films:
"Hopefully we'll reclaim some of the old irony," he says, "and make sure it doesn't become pastiche. I can't do shtick, I'm not very good at it. Unless it kind of suddenly makes sense. Does that make sense? I sometimes wish I hammed it up more, but I just can't do it very well, so I don't do it."
Skyfall writer will be penning the screenplay for Bond 24, so all the elements are there for this to be another great Bond film from the Skyfall team. The film is set for a UK release on October 23 2015 and a US release on November 6 2015.
Are you looking forward to the next Bond? Or is it still too soon to get excited?
