MGM & Sony Confirm Mendes’ Attachment to Direct Bond 24

After much debating and deliberation as to who would direct Bond 24 MGM and Sony have finally announced the highly anticipated news that Sam Mendes will get behind the camera again to direct Daniel Craig.

The film’s producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson had taken to considering numerous directors over the past few months in the light of Mendes’ theatre commitments. After weighing up all the pros and cons, they chose to play a waiting game until Mendes had a gap in his schedule so as to keep him in the Bond loop, at least for Bond’s 24th outing (despite rumours of him possibly going on to direct two more sequels). Also reprising their role from the most recent Bond sequel Skyfall, is screenwriter John Logan.

The above news was confirmed in a press release which also confirmed that Bond 24 will be released in the US on the 6th of November, 2015 and in the UK a couple of weeks earlier on the 23rd of October.

The film’s confirmed director had the following to say:

 “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.”
