John Logan, the man brought in to rework the Skyfall script written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, has been hired to write Bond 24 and 25.
The Gladiator writer will work on his own for the project which will be part of a two-film arc.
The studio plan is for Bond 24 to start shooting next autumn at Pinewood Studios with a target release date of fall 2014. No word on a release date for Bond 25.
As expected, Daniel Craig will reprise his role as 007 in both films, making it his fourth and fifth feature appearance as the character.
