John Logan & James Bond? 'Skyfall' Screenwriter Reportedly Hired To Pen Bond 24

"Skyfall" isn't out in theaters for another two weeks, but that doesn't mean plans for the next film aren't already in motion. According to the James Bond website MI6, "Skyfall" screenwriter John Logan is already working on the 24th Bond film, and unlike the 23rd outing, he'll write it alone. Logan worked with Neal Purvis and Robert Wade on the script for "Skyfall."

Of course, nothing about the project is known, but perhaps you can expect some of the Bond franchise's newest cast members -- like Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw -- to return for the next film. In an interview with HuffPost Entertainment, Whishaw, who plays Q in "Skyfall," said he was interested in another go-around with MI6. "I'm excited to see where the character is going to evolve to," he said.

"Skyfall" has already gotten rave reviews, with many hailing it as one of the best Bond films ever. Not that anyone should be too surprised. Logan is a three-time Oscar nominee who also wrote "Gladiator," "The Aviator," "Hugo," "Rango" and the upcoming Darren Aronfosky film "Noah."
