Bond 24: some teasing from Mendes

Sam Mendes brushed off one of his favorite Skyfall sayings to briefly discuss Bond 24.

Here are the details (as few as they are) from THE LONDON EVENING STANDARD from May 21:

Sam Mendes was pressed for clues about the next Bond film, entitled Bond 24, at a BFI Southbank screening of Paris, Texas, last night — but the director’s lips were sealed. “It’s being written, that’s all I can tell you. If I told you I’d have to kill you.”

Not much more to pass along. Back in March, Bond 24 scribe John Logan said the movie’s first draft script was almost done. Logan was hired to write Bond 24 and Bond 25 as a two-part story. The two-part plan was jettisoned to lure Mendes back as director. Mendes has referred to Bond 24 as the “second part of a two-part story.”

The movie is scheduled to start filming this fall for an October 2015 release in the U.K. and the following month in the U.S. (Typo from earlier version eliminated).

A shoutout to our friends at the James Bond Dossier who mentioned the London Evening Standard story.
