Upcoming Bond movie Skyfall has yet to complete filming, let alone hit cinemas, but it seems the franchise owners are keen to keep their rejuvenated 007 moving.
Sony Pictures’ president of worldwide distribution, Rory Bruer, yesterday told CinemaCon in Los Angeles that a 24th Bond instalment would be in cinemas towards the end of 2014, according to ComingSoon.net.
It's thought EON, MGM and Sony, who make the Bond films, are aiming to restore the pattern of a new release every two years, after financial difficulties forced a four year gap between the last two outings, 2008's Quantum of Solace and Skyfall, set to hit cinemas in December this year.
The question is, will Bond 24 feature the incumbent 007 Daniel Craig?
Craig initially signed up for just three movies so could potentially turn down a fourth, but the confidence with which Sony have slated a release date for the new movie - not to mention the actor’s own recent insistence that he wants to play the spy "until they tell me to stop" - suggests he’s sticking around.
