I hope Peter Morgan's influences will be felt regardless of John Logan's contributions.

Finally!

As long as there's a Q, Moneypenny, opening gun barrel, 'Bond, James Bond', 'Shaken, not stirred', and he gets the girl at the end I'll consider it an improvement and right now don't care who writes it.

If it comes out and sucks, then I will be displeased.

I liked that about QoS - that he didn't get the girl I mean. Notice that it was not only the first Bond film in which that happened, but also, remarkably, the first film in the franchise to raise the spectre of rape, which has of course traditionally been too ugly for the Bondverse. No coincidence that the two things featured in the same film, can't have Bond seducing a rape victim.

Excellent news! I'll be very interested in seeing what Sam Mendes brings to a James Bond movie.

I don't understand why people hate Quantum of Solace so much. I thought it was plenty exciting. It had everything I want from a James Bond movie: things blew up, cars crashed, and James Bond shot up all the bad guys. Seriously, how much can you nitpick that?

It would have been idiotic if he had, since QoS was a direct continuation of Casino Royale, and thus was about Bond coming to terms with losing Vesper. To saddle him with another woman just wouldn't be realistic (we'll categorize Strawberry Fields as a "relief bonk").

What I'm hoping that the they carry on with the plan to complete the trilogy. One of the reasons people hated so QoS so much is they didn't realize it was part 2 of a trilogy. So hopefuly they'll be able to complete the storyline, explain who Quantum is, introduce the new Blofeld (you know it's coming) and put the final bits of the Bond puzzle in place - Q and Moneypenny.

The only thing that tempers my enthusiasm is the assumption this will be made in 3-D. As I posted elsewhere, I do not enjoy 3-D movies and few places where I live bother showing the 2-D versions (I didn't even bother looking for a 2-D Tron Legacy). But I'm sure they'll still be making Blu-rays in 2013 so I'll enjoy Bond 23 then.

I'm not a fan of bringing Moneypenny and Q back into the picture, but if it can be done well and in connection to the larger whole, then go for it.

Other than that - HUZZAH! I can't wait.

I wonder what it'll be called? Property of a Lady? Risico? The Hildebrand Rarity? 007 In New York? (I'm personally for Risico--of all Flemming's remaning tales, that one seems the most "workable" into a film, especially a film with Daniel Craig.)
Except the for the fact that the story for Risico has essentially already been adapted, as it was incorporated pretty fully into the screenplay for For Your Eyes Only...

His contract is for 4 ? so hopefully one more after this in 2014 or 2015.

QoS is much better on a second viewing but it needed to explain the plot a little more and also ir didn't help that CR was the part of a interconnected trilogy of movies but from what I heard they changed stuff from the original plan when making QoS.

Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

I'm hoping the next Bond movie has Bond on the hunt for the international bankers who killed the studio and almost killed the franchise.

Nasty banker " Good day Mester Bond, i have been expecting you"
(The villainous banker calls to his evil hencman)
Nasty banker "Overdraft!!...see thats Mr bond has full use of our finincial service, oh and Mester Bond........You only....can withdarw a limited amount daily via a cash point......twice.....Maha..mahahaha!

Anyway 2012 is going to be good for Movies, Bond and Trek in the same year...lovley stuff.

Isn't 2012 going to be the fiftieth anniversary of the film series? I'll bet they're going to play that up once the marketing machine gets rolling.

I wonder if they're going to incorporate references to the other movies like Die Another Day did.

Probably because the whole point of the Bond reboot was to dial back on all the sillyness and present a more realistic take on the source material. This was definitely evident in Casino Royale but by the QoS we were presented with action and stunts that would make Die Another Day blush.

Cloaked cars, North Korean satelittes firing big ass laser weapons still win the stupid action/stunt awards for Die Another Day.

The action wasn't too silly.

The problem was that I couldn't tell what the hell was going on during the action scenes. I blame the director for that.
