James Bond Scribes Will Return to Pen the 35th Movie

The Daily Mail‘s Baz Bamigboye has posted to twitter a James Bond franchise update that claims that the screenwriting pair of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade will be returning to script the upcoming 25th franchise entry. He also adds that star Daniel Craig has not yet made a decision as to whether or not he’ll be back as 007.

Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have been working as James Bond writers since 1999’s The World is Not Enough, starring Pierce Brosnan. Most recently, the pair worked with John Logan and Jez Butterworth on the script for 2015’s SPECTRE. Starring Daniel Craig, SPECTRE grossed over $880 million at the worldwide box office. Oddly enough, Purvis and Wade weren’t originally planning to be a part of SPECTRE, issuing a statement in 2012 that prematurely announced their departure from the Eon Productions franchise.

While director Sam Mendes (who helmed both Skyfall and SPECTRE) has stated that he won’t be returning for the new film, all eyes are now on Daniel Craig to see if he follows suit. If the star returns for Bond 25, it will mark his fifth big screen appearance as 007. At the moment, however, he’s tied with Brosnan and still three films behind both Sean Connery and Roger Moore. (Although one of Connery’s seven was the non-Eon Never Say Never Again).
