November 19th, 2012 by bash Comments

Sam Mendes and writer John Logan have come up with a story for a new James Bond movie, it has been revealed.

Longtime James Bond screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have confirmed that they will be departing the franchise, but in announcing their news they also revealed a little bit of information that is likely to get 007 fans very excited.

“We’re very happy to have done five Bond movies, I think we’ve gotten it to a good place. I know that John Logan and Sam Mendes have come up with a plot for another one, which takes the pressure off because these films take up a lot of time,” Purvis and Wade said.

While Mendes has yet to commit to returning for a further Bond entry, Logan is believed to have signed on for another one.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
