John Logan, one of three screenwriters for Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film, picked up a nomination for best adapted screenplay for Hugo. He was previously nominated for Oscars for the original screenplays of The Aviator and Gladiator.
Logan was brought in to work on Skyfall by director Sam Mendes. His involvement was publicly disclosed about a year ago, when Eon Productions announced the 007 film was back on after being indefinitely delayed because of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s bankruptcy. Skyfall’s other screen writers are Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who’ve worked on the series since 1999’s The World Is Not Enough.
Logan’s nomination for Hugo was one of 11 received by the Martin Scorsese-directed film.
