Script issues on Bond 24 could push the film's release to 2016

12 months agoby:

There may be trouble in the development of the follow-up to SKYFALL, the currently untitled BOND 24. If stories coming from The Daily Mail are to be believed, issues with the screenplay could potentially push the film into 2016.

SKYFALL was co-written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade who were responsible for the final two Pierce Brosnan Bond films as well as both CASINO ROYALE and QUANTUM OF SOLACE. Director Sam Mendes brought in writer John Logan to bring SKYFALL to the next level and the results were almost universally positive. Purvis and Wade moved on and BOND 24 has been written by Logan on his own. Now it appears that Purvis and Wade are being brought back to "punch up" the script for BOND 24.

A source within the production gave the following quote.

"Letís call it polite turmoil. People are getting on with their work, but we have to wait for the script, so filming wonít begin till December, a few months later than they wanted."

Production on BOND 24 was already held off so producers could woo Sam Mendes back into the director's chair to replicate the success of SKYFALL. At this point, production on a big budget film like this may be able to absorb the delay in filming, but Sony may take the cautious approach and move the release date. We won't know for sure until the studio tells all, but I would much rather get a quality Bond film than a rushed one.

At this point, BOND 24 is still slated to hit theaters October 23, 2015.

May I Suggest . . .

The first weekend of May, 2016?

It seems to be a popular resting spot for most of the huge franchise films. Captain America, Batman V Superman, the proposed date for Star Wars VII--it's only natural that James Bond join in on the fun, since everyone else seems to be doing it. They can conspire together to make sure everyone ends up broke that weekend!

I hope they take their time this time. Skyfall was Roger Moore dumb without the the knowing wink. I seriously don't know how much or how reviewers were paid off to be so kind to such a "Michael Bay bad" bond film.

So, if anyone disagrees with your opinion, they were paid off? That seems fair. It couldn't be that they actually enjoyed the movie and felt differently than you. No, because your opinion is the only right one. I personally enjoyed Skyfall, and I never received a dime. It feels bad to know that my perspective is apparently wrong. I wish my opinion was absolute, like yours apparently is.

And I would have more respect for Michael Bay as a filmmaker if he made movies at the quality of

2015 was going to be one of the biggest years in film. Good stuff is still coming then, but now it's an appetizer for 2016.

Make the best movie possible, but Craig's Bond has had the most delays out of all them. By the time he makes a 5th movie he'll be older than Moore was when he did View to a Kill:-P

script issues...

'but wait, Q can communicate with Bond as he's chasing Bardem through the Underground but can't call in a jillion cops to lock down the Parliament building?"

"So M knows all those agents are compromised, but even months later doesn't pull them out until AFTER they start getting beheaded on Youtube?"

"so the hitman sprays like 200 bullets all over Istanbul (including a few into our own dead agent), but its not until Bond waits a few months to finally get around to digging a bullet out of

push it back

Push it back to 2025 is its gonna be as good as the last bond adventure. Follow ups are too rushed these days.

I knew it. There's been so little word of it at this point. 2015 is looking less and less epic as it was supposed to be.

Take your time and keep the bar high. This is no big deal.
