Earlier this week we learned some potentially huge James Bond news. A report circulated that 'Skyfall' screenwriter John Logan (who we know is returning for the series' next installment) had secretly plotted a two-part plot line for 'Bond 24' and '25,' which would be a rather major turn of events. Today, however, we're learning from 007 himself not to believe the hype.
George Clooney has never had any trouble assembling an all-star cast for his productions. Indeed, why would he? But his latest is looking like it boasts the most impressive line-up to date. Don't believe it? How does a movie featuring Clooney, Daniel Craig, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman and recent Best Actor Oscar winner Jean Dujardin sound?
While the latest James Bond flick 'Skyfall' inches closer to its November 9 release date, we've only just received word that one of its co-writers John Logan will be returning to pen the script for the next movie in the franchise. Though the storyline for 'Bond 24,' planned for a late 2014 release, is under wraps, we've just learned another piece of information that reportedly links the next two James Bond movies together.
Some of us are lucky enough to have seen 'Skyfall' already; indeed, it can safely be said that it earns the hype it's receiving as one of the best Bond movies ever. Just thrilling entertainment from start to finish. Part of its power stems from a complex, incisive, character-driven screenplay, and it looks like the Bond producers are well aware of that, as they've just hired one of the writers back for the next installment.
Towards the end of 'Skyfall' one character remarks to James Bond, "When all else fails, sometimes the old way works best." After an unfortunate stumble with the clunky 'Quantum of Solace,' 007 is back with a thrilling adventure that manages to be both classic Bond and a top notch modern action film.
'Skyfall' is still mostly a secret and producers have kept a tight lid on the film's secrets. Today we have the first 'Skyfall' clip online that shows us the introductory meeting between Bond (who, yes, introduces himself as Bond, James Bond) and new Bond girl Sévérine (Bérénice Marlohe). So what does this new 'Skyfall' clip reveal about some of the film's secrets?
Have 20 minutes to spare? In the middle of a weekday, probably not, but what if we told you it's 20 minutes to be spent with James Bond? That's what's being offered in the latest featurette for 'Skyfall,' the quickly approaching James Bond film. It's delivered shaken, not stirred, after the break.
