sam mendes returns to bond

Director Sam Mendes’ return to the Bond film franchise, after the success of his run during Skyfall, has been the subject of much speculation for months now, mainly because he was originally ruled out and confirmed again, before Mendes finally broke his silence and admitted that he’s finding it hard to commit due to a jam-packed slate. Fortunately, now that Mendes has freed up his schedule, he is now free to return for another run with the British superspy, with the release scheduled for October 23, 2015.

Mendes said in a statement, “I am very pleased that by giving me the time I need to honour all my theatre commitments, the producers have made it possible for me to direct Bond 24. I very much look forward to taking up the reins again, and to working with Daniel Craig, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for a second time.”
