ALTJust how hotly anticipated is the release of Skyfall, the 23rd film in the James Bond franchise? So anticipated that even two weeks before the film’s release date (November 9) there’s already talk of what’s to come, for the yet-to-be-titled 24th installment in the Bond franchise. 

According to a report in the UK’s The Daily Mail, Skyfall scribe John Logan will jump back into action as the screenwriter for the next Bond flick. They go on to report that the acclaimed, Oscar-nominated Logan, whose credits in addition to the buzzy Skyfall include Gladiator, The Aviator, Rango, Coriolanus, Hugo, and the equally anticipated and highly ambitious Noah, will “pen it on his own.” (Skyfall’s other screenwriters include Neal Pervus and Robert Wade, who have had a hand in writing the Bond films since The World Is Not Enough) Hollywood.com has reached out to Logan’s reps and Sony. Neither were immediately available for comment. 

The article also claims that the next Bond film, which will once again star Daniel Craig, is aiming for a Fall 2014 release date, making the gap between that and Skyfall noticeably shorter than that of Quantum of Solace and Skyfall. While there’s no mention of a director linked to the project, if logan and Skyfall director Sam Mendes were to team up again, the result could bode well for Bond fans, as evident by the early ravestheir first Bond collaboration.
