There has been what some are calling ‘polite turmoil’ behind the scenes of the latest James Bond film, resulting in a reshuffle of screenwriters and a delay to the start of filming.
The picture, known for now simply as Bond 24, was being written solely by Oscar-nominated John Logan, after he was brought in by director Sam Mendes to pen the last picture, Skyfall. In the process, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, long-time 007 writers, were gently moved on.
But now they’re back. The pair — who co-wrote five films for the franchise — have just been hired to re-write Logan’s script and give it some ‘punch’.
