Sam Mendes teases more about Bond 24

25-May-2014 • Spectre (2015)

Sam Mendes discussed the state-of-play with James Bond 24 this week, stating that the script is currently being worked on, and explaining how watching Daniel Craig on stage has inspired him.

IGN reports that Mendes spoke at a BFI screening, saying "The next one – it’s being written... It’s ongoing. For me, so much of it is about script. It’s like the building of a boat – once the boat gets on the current, it’s gone. If there’s a hole in the boat, you’re fucked. So you’ve got to make sure there’s no holes in the boat, and that’s what we’re doing now."

He also mentioned that seeing Daniel Craig perform on stage had inspired him to push the character further. "I went to see Daniel Craig in Betrayal and I was reminded what a fantastic actor he is outside of James Bond. It inspires you to think of other ways to use him and allow him to express that. Ralph Fiennes is another great example."

Thanks to `Germanlady` for the alert.
