CBn has two articles up right now on Bond 22.

First, good news for fans of Rene Mathis. Actor Giancarlo Giannini says he’s back for the next film!

Second, a nice little interview with screenwriters Neil Purvis and Robert Wade, who have been working on the Bond 22 script since before CR opened in November.

The idea is for the movie to start shooting at the beginning of next year. It would be nice to have the draft next week (laughing). The sooner the better. It’s not an easy thing to do, because the bar was raised with the last picture, so we have to raise our game again.
