Barbara Broccoli recently said work on the next James Bond film will start in spring 2016, according a short interview published in German.
Going back to the original interview in 20 Minuten, Broccoli says she hopes Daniel Craig will remain in the role, and that the films strike a balance between giving fans what they expect and offering something new.
She also says that after taking some time off to enjoy the reaction of the audience it will be time to start again in the spring.
Given the scale of the last two films that sounds like Bond 25 won’t hit our screens for another three years. Assuming nothing has been done on Bond 25 so far, and that nothing remains of the two story arc written by John Logan, spring 2016 means starting entirely from scratch.
As well as thrashing out a new story and penning the script, Broccoli and Michael G Wilson may also have to find a new director and even cast a new 007.
It’s going to be a long wait…
