Well, that's one hell of a way to follow up James Bond. While 'Skyfall' has yet to even hit US theaters, already smashing box-office records and reviews across the globe, director Sam Mendes and writer John Logan have already lined up their next project together. The duo is currently shopping around a period piece vampire hunting drama with shades of 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,' but what kind of twist will the pair put on the material?
'Skyfall' is a movie very much intended to return James Bond to his classic roots; roots established by actors like Sean Connery. Connery hasn't starred in a movie since 2003's 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' (what a disappointing way to go out...) but his almost ten-year retirement almost ended with a role opposite the character that made him famous.
With the frenzy of anticipation that comes with the announcement of a new ’Star Wars: Episode 7’ movie, it’s worth considering how many names being thrown out can’t make the film for the proposed 2015 release date, or are otherwise occupied. There’s no way in heck that Paramount would let J.J. Abrams jump franchise
Now that summer's officially over, it's time to gear up for the big fall titles, and one of the biggest is the return of James Bond with 'Skyfall.' It's been four years since 'Quantum of Solace' came out, and now they've got an Academy award winning director at the helm. But can he deliver action?
Even before the release of 'Skyfall,' the producers of James Bond are so confident with the franchise that they've announced that they're planning on making a follow up in 2014. This isn't all that surprising as the Bond series has been going on for fifty years, and the last film made over a half a billion worldwide. Still, that's cojones.
