New James Bond movie will have its 'own kind of action'

   Nov 22, 7:35 pm

Washington, November 22 (ANI): John Logan, screenwriter of the new James Bond movie Skyfall, says that the film's action sequences will stay true to the feel of the movie franchise as a whole and yet manage to stand out on their own.

Skyfall will be the 23rd movie in the James Bond franchise with Daniel Craig portraying the iconic British spy for the third time in a row after Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.

"The important thing for me is making sure that the action belongs in that movie," Contactmusic quoted Logan as telling the movie website Collider.

"... there's such a thing as a Bond kind of action, and then there's a subset of that which is our 'Skyfall' kind of action, they all have their own definitions," he said.

Even apart from the stunts he said it was important to reference the earlier films as he views them as 'part of a legacy'.

"It has nothing to do with being a standalone film, as far as I'm concerned, because I don't think these films are standalone, I think they're part of a legacy," he said.

"When I was working on it I was deeply aware as much of 'Quantum of Solace' and 'Casino Royale' as I was of 'Thunderball', as I was of Ian Fleming in the 50s writing it, you know you're a float in a parade," he added. (ANI)
