Screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade may not be household names, but the pair has worked on every script in the James Bond series since 1999’s “The World Is Not Enough.” It appears that tradition will continue.
According to Daily Mail entertainment columnist Baz Bamigboye, Purvis and Wade are set to return for the franchise’s 25th film.
Informally referred to as “Bond 25,” the film does not yet have a title, plot or director. Sam Mendes, who helmed both “Skyfall” and “Spectre,” has already ruled out returning to direct a third Bond film. The matter of who will play Agent 007 hasn’t been settled either. Producers have said their “first choice” remains Daniel Craig, who initially indicated that “Spectre” could be his final appearance as Bond before saying he’s willing to continue in the role “as long as I still get a kick out of it.”
However, that hasn’t prevented fans and journalists alike for speculating which actor might succeed Craig, with Tom Hardy, Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston all having their names linked to the role over the past year.
