Mendes set for 007 return?

The Daily Mail is reporting that Sam Mendes is “75% of the way towards” returning for James Bond 24.

Last year, reported that Mendes has reportedly dreamt up a new scenario with Skyfall screenwriter John Logan for a new film, however he soon shot down those rumours by saying he had done everything he wanted to do with a Bond movie in Skyfall.

Then it was reported that next Bond would be a two-parter however Daniel Craig then denied this saying: “You can’t write one movie thinking about the next. All we’re trying to do is get the next one sorted out and it’ll stand on its own and if I’m able I’ll do another one after that.”

A two-part sequel also put off Mendes because the back-to-back filming would have consumed four years of the director’s time.

Now, according to the Daily Mail, Bond 24 and 25 will be standalone pictures, and “Logan’s thoughts for Bond 24 are in the form of two treatment papers outlining a rough idea of the plot”.

Mendes wants to see the finished script before he signs back on.

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….
