Sam Mendes to Return to Bond Franchise with ‘Bond 24’
The next Bond movie, which will be referred to as Bond 24 for now, will be helmed by Sam Mendes. Mendes directed the extremely popular (and awesome) Skyfall, and tapping him as the director is a great idea for the franchise. Mendes can wrap up Daniel Craig’s story.
Craig will return as James Bond, but there aren’t a whole lot of details about production and so forth. However, MGM wants to put the picture out as soon as possible, making their list of possible directors tough. Most directors have a full slate, which is part of the reason the Christopher Nolan rumors had no weight.
It also appears Mendes will likely direct the sequel Bond 25. This is all great news to me. What do you think?
