Keep reading to find out who it is and more details!
From the Daily Mail:
Screenwriter John Logan has been hired to write Bond 24, and he will pen it on his own.
On Skyfall, he was brought in by director Sam Mendes and producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli to re-write the existing Skyfall screenplay that had been created by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.
Purvis and Wade had worked on a total of five Bond pictures, starting with 1999’s The World Is Not Enough — which is a strong record — but they felt it was time to move on. ‘They’ve had a tremendous run,’ an executive associated with the pair told me.
The outline for Bond 24 is a closely held secret and so far just Wilson, Broccoli, Craig and trusted aides know the storyline for the film featuring Ian Fleming’s ‘blunt instrument’.
Fleming famously told the New Yorker, back in 1962, that he wanted Bond to be ‘an extremely dull, uninteresting man to whom things happened’.
Well, Fleming...dull is DEFINITELY not the word to describe the Bond we've come to know and love. Sorry to disappoint you.
