I don't see how this even makes sense. I mean, it kind of has to be a direct sequel in this case. If you have the same actor brought back...playing the title role...you can't just ignore what happened in the previous movie and you can't contradict it. That would just confuse audiences all to hell and they would have a right to be.
It's not entirely unprecedented. Casino Royale is generally considered to be a total reboot of the James Bond franchise, and yet they continued to have Judi Dench play M, a role that she had previously played during the last 4 Pierce Brosnan films in the prior continuity.
