Many of us loved the latest James Bond movie, 'Skyfall,' which reflects in the film's $1 billion worldwide box office, but the film is something its director, Sam Mendes, does not want to repeat. We all know (or rather should know by now) that he doesn't have plans to return for the next 007 movie -- in fact, the very thought of doing so makes him "physically ill."

A few weeks ago we learned that 'Skyfall' director Sam Mendes would not be returning for Bond 24,  which was a bit shocking considering the enormous financial and critical success of the latest James Bond adventure. However, Bond franchise producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson aren't letting him go too easy: they say he'll be back...just not yet.

It's the question on the lips of every fan now that 'Skyfall' is on their DVD shelf: when is the next James Bond movie coming out? After all, 'Skyfall' made over $1 billion at the box office, earned universal acclaim from critics and audiences and even took home a few Oscars. Surely they must be fast tracking 'Bond 24!'

The 2013 Oscars ceremony was rumored a while back to pay tribute to the 50 years of James Bond films by uniting the actors who've played 007 on the stage. Although one of the Oscars producers debunked that rumor not too long after the fact, there was indeed a portion of the show dedicated to the epic franchise.

It was the kind of news that turned the heads of James Bond fans everywhere, even those who would normally never give the Academy Awards a second glance: all six actors who have played Agent 007 would appear on the 2013 Oscars stage together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic spy franchise. It would be a legendary sight...so it's too bad that it's not happening.

With 'Skyfall' firmly enshrined as the biggest James Bond film of all time (not to mention one of the biggest movies of all time, period), it only makes sense for the producers of the venerable series to keep the good times rolling and start talking Bond 24. They locked up screenwriter John Logan almost immediately after 'Skyfall' first dropped, and now it looks like director Sam Mendes is close to returning as well.

While the British Academy of Film and Television may not have the international clout of the Oscars, they're still a big deal and can often drop some useful tidbits for all of the awards prognosticators out there. In this case, the BAFTA awards have only further propelled Ben Affleck's 'Argo' to the front of the pack.
