The 24th film in the Bond series will hit cinema screens on 23rd October 2015 with Daniel Craig once again in the starring role. The director of Skyfall, Sam Mendes, will also return to the helm of the 51 year old movie franchise.
The new storyline has been written by John Logan, but for now the next film is known only as “Bond 24”.
Mendes commented upon the announcement:
“I am very pleased that by giving me the time I need to honour all my theatre commitments, the producers have made it possible for me to direct Bond 24. I very much look forward to taking up the reins again, and to working with Daniel Craig, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for a second time.”
Mendes is currently the director of the stage musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which is running at London’s West End.
