Oh yes, Sam Mendes is directing Bond 24 and most likely 25. Didn’t we cover this in May? I know we did. http://www.showbiz411.com/2013/05/28/daniel-craig-persuades-skyfall-director-sam-mendes-to-return-for-more-bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli went to London in May to convince Sam to do it, and got the money he’d wanted. Daniel Craig weighed in on it, too. “Skyfall” made a billion dollars, and Mendes wanted a better deal. Now he’s got it. John Logan wrote 24 and 25 as a two parter, so it’s likely Mendes will do both. Adele coming back? If I were her, I’d wait for 25. Give it a rest. Plenty of people just right for 24’s theme song, from Sting to Emeli Sande. One thing Broccoli and Michael Wilson learned: make it a song by a real singer, not that hideous Madonna thing, or the completely unlistenable Alicia Keys theme. What about Judi Dench? They killed her off. Maybe it was a dream.
