Screenwriter John Logan Talks James Bond 24Little is known about the upcoming 24th James Bond film, but we do know that Daniel Craig will be back as the titular hero along with Skyfall director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan. In a recent interview with IGN, Logan spoke about what the creative team is hoping to accomplish with the film and where they're drawing inspiration from.

"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."

Speaking about his lifelong love for the franchise, Logan also says the new film will feature elements from all across Bond's history.

"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 Fleming 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."

It was recently announced that MGM's long standing lawsuit with the Kevin McClory estate over several fixtures of the James Bond mythos, including arch-nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld and SPECTRE, has come to a close. When asked if the character and his organization might appear in the upcoming film, Logan replied:

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

The film is set for release in UK theaters on October 23, 2015 and in US theaters on November 6, 2015. What are you hoping to see in the upcoming 24th Bond film?
