Here’s the exchange:

Have any preparations been made for Bond 24 yet?

Broccoli: No, no.

How long a space do you think you’ll need?

Wilson: If we’re rapid it’ll be two years, if we’re not it’ll be three. It’ll be in that time period.

Barbara Broccoli is also quoted as saying, “So I think we just want to open this one, have a bit of a break and get on with the next one.”

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the studio that controls half of the 007 franchise, and Sony Pictures, which co-financed and is releasing Skyfall, have indicated they want to get the series back to an every-other-year schedule.

The Den of Geek interview was posted on Oct. 25. One day later, the Deadline entertainment Web site reported that John Logan was hired to write scripts for Bond 24 and Bond 25. The Hollywood Reporter had a story reporting the same thing. Both said Logan pitched an original two-movie story line.
