Sam Mendes To Return For Bond 24!

Mendes on the set of Skyfall

Sam Mendes made his Bond franchise directorial debut with Skyfall. And it’s needless to say, but I’m gonna say it anyway, he stuck gold. Gert Forbe would be proud. 

James Bond himself (Daniel Craig) pursued Mendes for the project and basically offered his pal from Road to Perdition the chance to direct without even asking and of the Bond producers about it. Seems like Craig might have known what he was doing since Skyfall turned out to be a world-wide success. The box office earnings did pass the $1 billion mark…

When asked about whether he might come back for another turn after Skyfall‘s release, Mendes said that he wasn’t sure about anything in regards to returning for Bond 24. I know that I did not expect Sam Mendes to come back for another Bond adventure. So to see this news break today, it comes to me as a complete surprise. A very happy, joyous, exciting one at that…

As you’ve probably guessed by now, I’m officially pumped for any and all details regarding Bond 24. Yes, I’m a Bond fan, and would support the film by going to see it regardless of who was directing, but I absolutely loved the approach Mendes had and obviously final product that he/Skyfall delivered.

Kudos to Mendes for giving James Bond a classic feel reminiscent of the franchise’s glory days with Skyfall and being open to return for another film. I thank you.
