Bond 24 Aims for Release by 2016: Director Announcement Coming Soon

by at . Comments

After the immense success of Skyfall, the next James Bond film has a lot to live up to. And while Sam Mendes will not return to direct Bond 24, Daniel Craig is still signed up for at least two more films.

MGM CEO Gary Barber recently stated that the script is currently being worked on, and that they hope to sign a director shortly. He hopes to have the film in theaters within 3 years.

Casino Royale Daniel Craig

Skyfall is currently the seventh highest-grossing film of all time, worldwide, having earned over $1.1 billion. While nothing is known about the direction the new film will take, it was originally planned as a two-parter, but that idea was scrapped to try to woo Mendes.

Now that Mendes is a firm no, however, it is possible that the two-part idea could make a return.
