James Bond Screenwriters Quitting After Skyfall
Neal Purvis and Robert Wade to end 13-year involvement with 007...
The screenwriting duo of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have signalled that they intend to end their 13-year involvement with the James Bond franchise.
Saying that they plan to "go out on a high" after the record-breaking success of current 007 adventure Skyfall, the pair claimed they were leaving the franchise in good hands.
Speaking at the Doha Tribeca Film Festival, Wade was quoted by Digital Spy as saying: "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."
And Purvis added: "We were going to stop with Quantum Of Solace, but it's good to go out on a high with Skyfall."
Wade and Purvis began their involvement with Bond on 1999's The World Is Not Enough - and worked with Gladiator scribe John Logan on the current movie.
