Director Sam Mendes did an incredible job directing the 23rd James Bond film Skyfall, and I've been hoping that he comes back to direct the 24th film! It's something he wasn't sure he would want to do again, but now the Daily Mail is reporting that Mendes is "75 percent of the way towards doing it," which is great! It may not be 100% confirmation, but at least it's something.
It was previously reported that screenwriter John Logan was writing a Bond 24 and 25 two-part story that would be shot back-to-back. According to the report that plan has been scrapped and that now the two movies will be stand alone films, which plays a part in why Mendes might be coming back to the director's chair. Apparently he didn't want to commit to a two-part story.
It was previously reported that Mendes and Logan came up with an idea for the new movie, and I can't wait to see what they've come up with! Are you excited about the possibility of Mendes coming back for more James Bond?
