Writer John Logan Says Themes From 'Skyfall' Will Continue In 'Bond 24,' Script Nearly Finished

“No comment.” That was screenwriter John Logan's frequent response to Empire, who recently caught up with the Bond scribe, and prodded him for details about the follow-up to the billion dollar-busting "Skyfall." Will it be two-parts as once rumored (and then denied by Daniel Craig)? How about other double-0 agents? Logan isn't saying, but he did share a tease about the overall shape of the story of "Bond 24," which is nearing the finish line.

“Right now the first draft is almost done,” Logan said. “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.”

So, more broken, damaged, getting-his-mojo-back Bond? Another tale set against the backdrop of global terrorism? Possibly! As you might expect, things are going to be kept in the dark for a while, but Logan promises one thing: “You ain’t seen nothing yet!”

"Bond 24" arrives on November 6, 2015.

    Skyfall really was a terrible Bond film. The plot was riddled with holes, London was not exotic enough a location, the villain was not diabolical enough, he was only slighted, Bond himself lacked the panache the character should have. Casino Royale modernised it well, but Skyfall was an absolute shambles.
    Bond should be cool not whiny, the locations should be exciting, the villain should be dangerous. Make the stunts and action excellent, don't kill the Bond girl too quickly, don't make the plot holes too blatant and you've got a great Bond movie.

    A lead character with no vulnerability is an incredibly boring lead character. See Pierce Brosnan's Bond.
    I liked Skyfall purely because Bond wasn't the cool, invincible badass that says a cheesy one-liner to himself every now and then. He was actually a real character.

    Though I do agree with you about the Bond Girl, I think 'absolute shambles' is a bit strong.
