Sam Mendes May Return To Direct ‘Bond 24’
  |  @   |  

Quantum of Solace pretty much set the bar low on Bond film expectations, so its succeeding director could easily jump over it with the next Bond film. When Sam MendesSkyfall came out late last year, the bar immediately was raised sky high. Touted as one of the best Bond films in its 50-year span, Skyfall went on to be a box office hit and even a BAFTA award winner. But its sequel is still without a director.

In a rare move, however, The Daily Mail reports that Mendes could return to direct Bond 24. According to them, there is a 75 percent chance that he will come back for a second time. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have gone on to say that they would like to see the director return for a second time. Rumor was that the next two films on Daniel Craig‘s contract will have a connective storyline. Something that Mendes has said he doesn’t really look forward to, which explained his hesitancy to come back, and Craig has denied.

The reason for his “highly probably return” was that Wilson and Broccoli decided to make the next two Bond films, standalone. So now that both parties are happy, screenwriter John Logan is busy writing the scripts for the next two Bond film, which is scheduled to hit theaters sometime in 2014.

So what do you think? Would you like to see Sam Mendes come back to the director’s chair?
