Ben Whishaw says new James Bond film will shoot later this year, Daniel Craig set for Bond 24

Skyfall star Ben Whishaw has hinted that Bond 24 could begin production by the end of the year.

The Hour actor, who played MI6’s new Q in last year’s action blockbuster, said that he and Daniel Craig will “probably be back together again in about ten months”.

“Well, hopefully. Let’s hope so!” he told the Radio Times. “I know that he’s doing the next three so I’m not thinking beyond that. We’ve got to just get through those first.”

Whishaw also said that he hopes Q is more involved in the Skyfall follow-up and wants Sam Mendes to return to the director’s chair, “we would want to make a better movie next time around”.  

Mendes was at first reluctant to return because screenwriter John Logan was planning a two-part story that would have been shot back-to-back. The site says that is no longer the case and that Bond 24 and 25 will now be stand-alone movies.

Mendes’ involvement with the film was confirmed a few months ago when Skyfall co-writer Robert Wade mentioned that Mendes and Logan have already come up with a story for the next film.

MGM has voiced the desire to get another Bond film to theaters late 2014, but that seems very ambitious.
