Skyfall co-writer John Logan will pen the next James Bond adventure – and the next. According to Deadline, Logan sold the Bond producers on a story that would play out over two films – a first for the Bond franchise.
Logan shares credit on Skyfall with regular Bond scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and has been nominated for three Academy Awards, most recently for Hugo.
Skyfall, the 23rd edition in the franchise, opens today in the U.K. and several overseas territories, and the early buzz is good. Daniel Craig is committed to play 007 for at least two more films, so Logan’s double-feature could serve as the actor’s swan song.
Sony did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
