Roger Deakins passes on photographing Bond 24

Roger Deakins, nominated for an Oscar for his photography for Skyfall, won’t return to the series for Bond 24, according to A FEB. 16 TWITTER POST BY WRITER KRISTOPHER TAPLEY.

At dinner with Deakins last night I learned some news that makes me sad: He won’t be shooting the next Bond.

Deakins signed on for Skyfall because of his work with director Sam Mendes. Mendes, after initially declining a return, has signed on to direct Bond 24, due out in the fall of 2015. John Logan, recruited to Skyfall by Mendes, is the sole writer (at least at this point) for Bond 24.

There aren’t many other details available, such as who will replace Deakins. You can CLICK HERE to read The Playlist’s take, HERE for Cinema Blend’s or HERE for Slash Film’s.
