06-Apr-2017 • Bond 25
Just last month, long-time Neal Purvis and Robert Wade writers were said to be back in the fold and penning a new script for Bond 25. They had just wrapped work on the BBC mini-series 'SS-GB'.
According to Deadline, the duo are also adapting Jo Nesbo’s upcoming novel 'I Am Victor' for Baltasar Kormakur to direct and produce.
'I Am Victor' is a "thriller about a skilled but morally corrupt and narcissistic divorce attorney. When he finds himself framed for a series of brutal murders, he embarks on his own investigation to find the killer. Purvis and Wade are understood to be finalizing the script before it goes out to cast."
It's unclear from reporting how deep Purvis and Wade were into this project when 007 came calling again.
