Daniel Craig Thinks a Two-Part James Bond Is Impossible

Daniel Craig Thinks a Two-Part James Bond Is Impossible

Oct 31, 2012

So, despite the confirmation last week that the currently untitled 24th and 25th James Bond movies would be a two-part story, you may not want to get too excited about back-to-back 007 films just yet.

The German site Filmstarts.de asked Daniel Craig about the films, and he flat out said:

"It's impossible to do a two-parter, I heard that someone was talking about that we're doing a two-parter, but that's the first I've heard about it. We can only do them one at a time, they take six months to shoot. You can't write one movie thinking about the next. All we're trying to do is get the next one sorted out and it'll stand on its own and if I'm able I'll do another one after that."

Now, of course it's possible that there's a misunderstanding of what constitutes a two-part film here. Last week's news merely indicated that John Logan would be writing a story that would span two films, not that the two films would necessarily be shot at the same time. So hopefully this is a case of Craig confirming that they're not going to film them both at the same time, though that would make his word choice about not thinking about a second movie rather odd.

If it's not a misunderstanding, all those rumors of Idris Elba taking on 007 may prove true sooner rather than later.
