James Bond 24: ‘You ain’t seen nothing yet’

Empire Magazine recently sat down with John Logan, writer of the upcoming 24th James Bond movie and it sounds like we might be in for something special.

When discussing the script Logan stated: “Right now the first draft is almost done, 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.”

Will there be any elements from Casino Royale or Quantum? “There might be! Honestly, not being evasive, but the great thing about Bond is that I have fifty 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.”

Logan was asked if James Bond 24 would be as big of a film as Skyfall and he replied, “You ain’t seen nothing yet!”
