After stating he was one and done, it appears Sam Mendes may indeed return to direct the next Bond film after all. Eon Productions is accommodating Mendes' schedule so he can complete his Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and King Lear projects. It's tentatively titled, James Bond Rises. Or James Bond, Revenge Of The Fallen. Something like that.
Craig is signed for two more films himself. I'm unsure how I feel anymore about an aging, human, unsure Bond. I think we've established the heck out of that in the last 3 films, and Skyfall neatly re-established the franchise proper. Now we need to have some fun. Is there a way to have a down to earth, grim and gritty spy thriller featuring a guy wanting to spread poisonous spores across the earth while living in a gigantic false volcano? I have no idea.
