Two-part sequel announced for 'Skyfall'

Daniel Craig will be back as James Bond in the two-part sequel to 'Skyfall'

'Skyfall' screenwriter John Logan ('Gladiator', 'Lincoln') is already at work on the movie's two-part sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

As 'Skyfall' rolls out worldwide, Logan is already working on the 24th and 25th chapters of the James Bond saga, both direct follow-ups to 'Skyfall'. The films will stray away from Ian Fleming's works, which was already the case with 'Quantum of Solace' and 'Skyfall'.

The plot is purposefully shrouded in mystery, but it has been confirmed that Daniel Craig will reprise his starring role in the sequels. Some of the characters that were brought back from James Bond lore for 'Skyfall', such as Q (Ben Wishaw), will also be woven into the plot. According to The Daily Mail, the first part should start shooting in late 2013.

In the movie, the aging agent 007 tries to save M, whose safety is at stake following the loss of a hard drive containing the list of British secret agents currently on undercover missions. Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris share the screen with Daniel Craig in the Sam Mendes-directed spy flick.

'Skyfall' opens in theatres 1 November 2012. Get your tickets here
