John Logan has been busy of late writing Bond 24 and as we've heard before, he's pretty pleased with himself; promising a spectacle for the Skyfall sequel. As ComicBookMovie.com explain, whilst 'it isn't a direct sequel, penning the 24th James Bond film when the 23rd proved to be such a massive success brings no shortage of pressure'.
In a recent interview with Empire, Logan expressed his excitement for the first draft:
I’m terrifically excited about it! I’ve been working very closely with Sam [Mendes], 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.
And when pushed to reveal whether or not there's a chance that Quantum would be returning, he said:
There might be! Honestly, not being evasive, but the great thing about Bond is that I have 50 years of movies – 23 movies – and all the Ian Fleming novels and short stories, all of which are fodder. And when I'm working on the new Bond I'm constantly going back to Fleming and the other movies – what are the bits and pieces, what are the resonances? One of the things we learned in Skyfall is that the audience really enjoyed those, they enjoyed when they saw the Aston Martin, they enjoyed when we had references to things they grew up with, either from Ian Fleming or from the other movies, and that's always been a part of my thinking about Bond.
Do you think his comments indicate a return of the badass criminal crew for Bond 24?
