How easy is it to walk away from a franchise after delivering its biggest-ever success, especially when the span of the series covers fifty years? Director Sam Mendes has waffled on the idea of doing another Bond, at first suggesting that he wouldn’t do a second Bond movie prior to the release of Skyfall, and slowly seeming more open to it. Now that the film is a monster success, is he rethinking?

We know that Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who have worked on Bond films since The World is Not Enough, won’t be back for Bond 24, and that Skyfall writer John Logan has been hired to draft the 24th and 25th films in the series. But Wade also says that the story idea for Bond 24 comes from Logan and Mendes… so is there a chance that Mendes will returns after all? Probably too soon to say, but here’s what Wade had to say in a press release confirming his and Purvis’ departure from the series:

We’re very happy to have done five Bond movies, I think we’ve gotten it to a good place. I know that John Logan and Sam Mendes have come up with a plot for another one, which takes the pressure off because these films take up a lot of time.

We probably won’t get any confirmation of the talent set for Bond 24 for a while, but at least we might have real info on that movie sooner than we do for the new Star Wars film.
