John Logan praat over Bond 24

John Logan praat over Bond 24

De Bond film Skyfall van regisseur Sam Mendes, was een groot succes. Bond 24 zal verdergaan waar Skyfall is gestopt. Dit liet John Logan, scriptschrijver voor Skyfall, Bond 24 (en Bond 25) weten. Hij zei:

“All I can say about Bond is that I’m happily writing it.Sam [Mendes] would rappel through the window and kill me.”

Hij vervolgde:

“My goal is to write a great movie that’s appropriate, to build on what we did on Skyfall, but make it its own unique animal. The themes, ideas and the characters from Skyfall can obviously continue on, because it is a franchise, and it is an ongoing story. So I think there’s resonance from Skyfall in the new movie.”

Hij voegde toe:

“I feel like Skyfall is one part of a continuing story. It needs completing and it needs the same storyteller. And I’m so relieved. He [Mendes] chose me and had a vision for my character.”

Over zijn connectie met de franchise zei hij:

“I grew up on the Bond movies. The first one I saw was Diamonds Are Forever, when I was a kid. I just loved them to pieces. I love all the elements, from the books — mostly from the novels; going back to Ian Flemming is where I started with Skyfall — and there’s certainly elements of the movies and the novels that we’ve brought into the new movie, as they did into Skyfall.”

Toen hem gevraagd werd of Bond’s aartsvijand Blofeld terug zou keren op het witte scherm, antwoordde Logan:

You know, I think our villain’s appropriate to the story we’re telling.”

Bond 24 draait vanaf 23 oktober 2015 in de Nederlandse bioscopen.
