Work on Bond 23 has officially begun. Producer Michael G. Wilson told us that 3 weeks ago. So I suppose at some point in the near future they will need to start thinking about getting a script sorted, and according to The Observer writer Paul Haggis may return to write (the yet to be titled) Bond 23.
I hear that Haggis is also likely to feature as script writer on the next Bond movie, having assisted on the last two. No clues as to the next movie have come from the Broccoli camp just yet. Fresh from the close of BFI Southbank’s two-month tribute to Cubby’s films, Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson will confirm nothing other than that Daniel Craig will still be 007.”
Paul Haggis polished the script by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade for Casino Royale, and did the same for Quantum of Solace just before the writers strike so we know it would be in good hands. While the script is important I’m curious to see who they get to direct. While I like Marc Forster, I preferred Royale to Solace and it will be interesting which direction they go next time round. Will it be another drama/character director or a return to the typical action director?
