Skyfall opens in the UK today with critics proclaiming it one of the best Bond movies ever. While we wait to see how British movie-goers react to the latest Bond film, EON Productions is getting the ball rolling on the next Bond film.
Deadline is reporting that Skyfall co-writer John Logan is set to write the next two Bond films. The Bond franchise may venture into new territory though as the site reports that the two films are being designed and pitched as a multi-film arc.
Up until now, the character has dealt with each threat within a single film, though certain overall villains and themes have crossed into multiple installments. With Daniel Craig contracted for two more Bond films, this multi-film arc may conclude with Craig's exit to the franchise.
Bond 24 is aiming to being production next fall for a fall 2014 release. There is no storyline or title at this point and there likely won't be one for quite some time.
Skyfall opens in the U.S. on November 9.

James Bond, Skyfall
Skyfall has so many illogical plot elements. Like why did the grounds keeper and M use a flashlight when they were walking through the field in the middle of the night. Its like waving a sign to the villains "Hey, over here! Come an find me so the plot can continue!"
Help me write up all the plot points that don't make sense for SkyFall and other movies at IRuinMovies.com.
Hmm...really? I haven't seen Skyfall (yet), and Gladiator was good, but I haven't forgiven Logan for Star Trek: Nemesis. Also, do we really want another 2-parter for Bond? That didn't work so well for QoS. Plus then it's like "Craig did five films, but it feels more like three." It's great that they rebooted the franchise, but too much reboot and it's not Bond anymore (QoS just wasn't, sorry).
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
