Next Bond film is NOT based on DEVIL MAY CARE

Over the weekend The Sun ran an article by Showbiz Editor Gordon Smart claiming that the next James Bond film, Bond 24, will be based on Sebastian Faulks' 2008 continuation novel, Devil May Care.

"Bizarre can reveal the follow-up to Skyfall will be Devil May Care. Brit SEBASTIAN FAULKS penned the novel of the same name in 2008 to mark the 100th anniversary of Bond creator Fleming’s birth. The book is set in 1967 and was a sequel to The Man With The Golden Gun — which was ROGER MOORE’s second outing for MI6. The story sees Bond battling an evil chemist called Dr Julius Gorner, who plots to bring Britain to its knees."

While it isn't IFP's policy to respond to rumors, I can confirm for you that this "scoop" by The Sun is complete and utter rubbish. Bond 24 is NOT based on Devil May Care.

The good news is Sam Mendes will return to direct the next 007 adventure from a script by John Logan. That's the creative team responsible for last year's amazing Skyfall. Daniel Craig will, of course, return as James Bond.

Bond 24 will be released on October 23, 2015 in the UK and November 6th, 2015 in the U.S.

UPDATE: Happy to see my little post here has been picked up by Filmoria with a nice credit.

  1. The Sun is often full of rubbish of this sort, so thank you for taking a stand against their tabloid trash.

    1. It's really amazing how a news organization this large can present a complete and total fabrication as fact. Makes one wonder what other lies they are passing off as news. It's a sad day when you need to turn to a one-man personal blog to get the truth. Scary, in fact.

  2. In the words of Bishop Brennan in Father Ted "Oh this is nothing...nothing!"

    I cut this out when I first saw it in 1991, aghast at how utter rubbish it was.

    I hope these links work. I'm still not sure how to include photo bucket links in a blog. Three years down the line, iphone4s still doesn't want to talk to blogger sites 100%.

    I don't know if readers outside the UK know who Gary Glitter is (google him) but let's just say he's not my first choice as Bond.

  4. Its good to see bond will be back in 2015. i would like it if they made a film from a continuation novel as theres more of them than the Fleming ones. As for most of the British press and sun you would of thought that after its sister paper the news of the world being brought down from phone tapping and publishing total lies and the dirty ways they get there so called news, the sun would be careful about what it puts in the pages. i stopped reading newspapers about 15 years ago and would never buy the sun i think it should be called the DAILY BS.
