Peter Morgan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade to Write the Next JAMES BOND Movie

     June 12, 2009

daniel_craig_james_bond_quantum_of_solace_movie_image__6_.jpgProducers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have announced that Peter Morgan (“Frost/Nixon”, “The Queen”), Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (“Quantum of Solace”, “Casino Royale”) will be the screenwriters of the next James Bond movie. Daniel Craig will reprise his role as 007 and they haven’t determined a start date for production.

“Peter, Neal and Robert are extraordinarily talented and we’re looking forward to working with the three of them,” commented Wilson and Broccoli.

Peter Morgan is the award-winning writer of such films as “The Last King of Scotland”, “The Queen” and “Frost/Nixon”, which was based on his play.  He has also scripted the upcoming “The Special Relationship” for HBO and Hereafter for DreamWorks.  He will turn his attention to Bond 23 on completion of these duties.

For fans of Bond, this is great news, as we’re now one step closer to the next installment and we’re getting a fantastic writer on the project. If I had to guess, I’d expect the next Bond in 2011.
