Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of EON Productions, together with Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum, Co-Chairmen and Chief Executive Officers of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., today announced that the 23rd James Bond film will commence production in late 2011 for a worldwide release on November 9, 2012.
Daniel Craig will be returning as the legendary British secret agent, with Sam Mendes directing a screenplay written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan.
This is very exciting. I'm so relieved that Daniel Craig is returning, after rumors speculating that he would not. I'm also very glad that Sam Mendes is directing, as the prospect of him helming a James Bond movie is pretty enticing in my opinion.
However, I'm assuming Peter Morgan is off the project? Last I heard, he did a draft of the screenplay, but the article mentions John Logan. Is this some error or is Logan on the project?
