Sam Mendes directs Daniel Craig in Skyfall

Back in March it was reported that Skyfall director Sam Mendes would not be returning to direct the next installment in the mega franchise, known only as James Bond 24 at the moment.

But in Hollywood things seem to change every second, and now Mendes is back in the picture. It’s being reported that the director has entered into negotiations with MGM and Sony Pictures to return for Bond 24, which will once again star Daniel Craig as the legendary spy.

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli were obviously saddened by Mendes’s initial decision not to return after Skyfall scored $1 billion at the box office—making it the biggest Bond ever and eighth highest grossing movie of all time—so this new twist should make them ecstatic.

At the time he turned the gig down, Mendes cited upcoming theatrical productions of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory—which is getting ready to open on London’s West End before moving on to Broadway—and King Lear as the reasons he would have no time to return to Bond. But instead of rushing to find a new director, everyone involved waited patiently to see how things would play out, and now it seems a little wiggle room has presented itself.
