Skyfall, the 23rd Bond movie, arrives this year, with a trailer not far away. Bond 24? It's already been confirmed for 2014.
With news that the first trailer for the 23rd James Bond movie, Skyfall, is coming next month, Sony has also taken the opportunity to confirm that the 24th movie won’t be too far away. The gap between Quantum Of Solace and Skyfall was four years, mainly due to the financial instabilities of MGM. With such issues out the way, the plan is to get the franchise back on a two year schedule, it seems.
As such, the studio is saying that the 24th James Bond movie will arrive toward the end of 2014.
This is where it gets interesting, though. Daniel Craig signed up to play the role of James Bond three times, with an option for first refusal of a fourth movie. Skyfall therefore marks the last 007 film he's strictly contracted to do.
Thus, if he doesn’t want to do Bond 24, he doesn’t have to, but he gets first dibs. Sony is unlikely to want to turn around a reboot of Bond in two years, so our guess is that Craig may well sign up for Bond 24. And then? Well, don’t wager against him retiring his tuxedo after that.
Then the question becomes, who plays James Bond after that? Our vote would be for Michael Fassbender.
Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.
