Bond 24 To Be Based On Novel Devil May Care?
Follow-up to Skyfall reportedly based on book set in 1967…
Mendes had initially turned down the chance to take on a second 007 movie due to other commitments but producers were keen to get the Skyfall helmsman (a movie which made £700m at the worldwide box office), back on board.
Mendes said: "I am very pleased that by giving me the time I need to honour all my theatre commitments, the producers have made it possible for me to direct Bond 24."
The movie will reportedly be released in the UK on 23 October 2015.
