Daniel Craig Confirms The Next Bond Movie Won’t Be A Two-Parter
Recently in a video interview with German site Filmstarts, Daniel Craig quashed all speculation, when he confirmed the next Bond movie won’t be a tow-parter. Basically, rumors surfaced that screenwriter John Logan was working on a two-part outing to cover Bonds 24 and 25.
When asked to confirm this news Craig was quoted as saying “No, I don’t know where that’s come from. It’s impossible to do a two-parter. I heard that, that someone was talking about that we’re doing a two-parter, but that’s the first I’ve heard about it. We can only do them one at a time. They take six months to shoot. It’s [impossible]. You can’t write one movie thinking about the next, so all we’re trying to do at the moment is get the next one sorted out, and that will stand alone, and if I’m able I’ll do another one after that”.

Well, the good news that can be taken away from what Craig has said is the fact that, he might be seen playing Bond at least in 2 more movies. Especially after how well his role in the movie and the latest Bond Movie is being received world over, it’s no surprise the studio and Daniel both, want to milk the franchise a bit more. Skyfall is already in UK cinemas now and creating and breaking all sorts of collection records, and is expected to do the same once it opens in the US on 9 November 2012. The movie has been directed by Sam Mendes and has the Oscar winning actor Javier Bardem, playing the villain in the film.
The film sees the return of two recurring characters after an absence of two films: Q, played by Ben Whishaw, and Miss Moneypenny, played by Naomie Harris. After starring as M for seven consecutive Bond films, Skyfall marks Judi Dench’s last performance in the role. The position is subsequently filled by Ralph Fiennes’ character, Gareth Mallory. Fiennes is an interesting addition to the cast, and his acting chops would surely work wonders in the forthcoming Bond films. The film’s release in the UK coincided with the 50th anniversary of the James Bond series, which began with Dr. No in 1962.
