In issue 214 of Total Film magazine, James Bond’s new Moneypenny discussed a follow-up to Skyfall and returning.

“I feel like Skyfall is one part of a continuing story. It needs completing and it needs the same storyteller. I really got on with Daniel. It would be strange if someone else took the role. He’s a brilliant Bond for our times.”

Director Sam Mendes is returning and Harris appears to be thrilled.

“And I’m so relieved [about Mendes returning]. He chose me and had a vision for my character. I’d feel really weird working for someone who hadn’t chosen me and didn’t have that vision. I just want him to see it through.”

Ralph Fiennes was added in Skyfall as the new M and recently said he’s happy about returning for Bond 24.

“I’m looking forward to it very much,” he said.

The untitled film, nicknamed Bond 24, arrives in theaters November 6, 2015.
