Bond 24 script needed ‘massive overhaul’?

August 2nd, 2014 by Marc Comments

It looks like all is not going swimmingly on the latest James Bond movie…

The Daily Mail (yeah, we know) are reporting that extensive rewrites on the script have been necessary as “Writers Neil Purvis and Robert Wade answered a fire-alarm call from James Bond actor Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes to ‘rescue’ the screenplay for Bond 24 (the film’s working title), written by John Logan, and add some ‘thrills’.”

They say that the rewrites mean the movie is now significantly different from Logan’s and everyone is very happy with it.

“Mendes himself had brought in Logan, an award- winning playwright and screenwriter, to work on the last Bond film, Skyfall, rewriting drafts that Purvis and Wade had penned,” they report, “but sources [say] that Mendes almost went down on his knees to persuade Purvis and Wade to return to the Bond fold. The director had a lot of making up to do.”

What do you all think? Did Sam Mendes beg? Let us know your thoughts below, @Nerdfollowing or on Facebook

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
