Perhaps not. But I am convinced that rushing too much increases the likelihood that the end product will suffer. Of course there are always exceptions to generalities such as this, so we'll have to wait and see.

I've heared the same thing actually. I was really hoping for a 2014 release. It makes sense for it to come out in 2014 a lot more than 2016 as well...

Re: Bond 24 Thread

Things would have been alot faster if Sam Mendes chose to stay. They've got the Bond series at its highest peak since Goldfinger right now. The smart move would be to get another one out as soon as possible.

But w/e Skyfall is so good that I won't get sick of it for awhile I guess.

1: Casino Royale  2: Goldeneye  3: Skyfall  4: Octopussy  5: Goldfinger  6: Tomorrow Never Dies  7: The World Is Not Enough  8: The Living Daylights  9: From Russia With Love 10: The Spy Who Loved Me

Re: Bond 24 Thread

Don't buy too hard into the 2016 thing. The studio guy said "within three years." He said it in March of 21013, so all the half-wit bloggers do some lazy math and say "2013 + 3 = 2016." If Bond 24 comes out in March of 2016, I'll eat my shoe. Aside from all the other holes in that theory, Mendes turned down Bond 24 because “I have theatre and other commitments, including productions of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and King Lear, that need my complete focus over the next year and beyond." If they were going to wait until 2016, Mendes would've likely considered it.

Re: Bond 24 Thread

I found this in an article in MI6co.uk :


The Bond 24 writer, who had a hand in crafting the successful "Skyfall" has given a quick teaser to the Financial Times whilst discussing his new Dench- and Whishaw-starring play "Peter and Alice".

John Logan says that he's keen to keep picking at some of the threads he unraveled in "Skyfall", and sees his inspiration as flowing from Fleming Bond's vulnerability:

"Fleming’s courage in showing Bond’s fear and vulnerability and depression was really interesting and something that a modern audience can accept."

"I think Skyfall demonstrated that they want more layers to that character. And those are the layers that Fleming wrote."

Any comments?

Well I, for one, welcome this news - I like to get behind James Bond's psyche as it was related in the original Bond novels. This is a very good direction for the series to go in after Skyfall.
