Daniel Craig Says a 2-Part James Bond Film is Impossible
Last week we learned that John Logan would be writing the 24th and 25th James Bond films, and that they would be connected, and tell one story, but according to Daniel Craig that isn't the case. In a recent interview with Filmstarts Craig said,
No, I don't know where that's come from. It's impossible to do a two parter, I heard that someone was talking about that we're doing a two parter, but that's the first I've heard about it. We can only do them one at a time, they take six months to shoot. You can't write one movie thinking about the next. All we're trying to do is get the next one sorted out and it'll stand on its own and if I'm able I'll do another one after that.
It doesn't sound like anyone has really talked to him about this yet, but it certainly isn't impossible. You can easily tell one long story and break it up into two films. I'm not quite sure Craig really understands what is going on. But it sounds to me like he might not want to do two Bond films back-to-back.
What we do know for sure is that the next film is scheduled to start production next fall at Pinewood Studios with a release date of fall 2014. I hope they end up doing a two-part story! It will be interesting to see what the facts are behind this two-part film news.
