James Bond finds a new writer

Daniel Craig as James Bond

Peter Morgan announced to co-write 007’s next big screen adventure…

I've watch Quantum Of Solace a couple of times now, and I'm still a bit non-plussed by it. There are some superb sequences in there, and a few very James Bonds moments, but it struck me as a film without much of a core, and more of a showreel for action cinema, rather than a coherent whole. Conversely, I thought Casino Royale was outstanding, and can see through the card game in particular as many times as someone cares to show it me.

Both Royale and Solace were penned by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, along with Crash writer/director Paul Haggis. Haggis it seems isn't returning for Daniel Craig's third Bond adventure, and so the producers have now drafted in Peter Morgan to help share scribing duties.

Morgan, of course, is best known for the likes of The Queen and Frost/Nixon, and his further credits include The Last King Of Scotland and The Damned United.

Little is known about the plot of the film thus far, and, of course, we won't get a hint of its title for some time to come yet. We just know that Craig is a given for it, and that it's due more than likely in 2011.

We'll, of course, keep you posted.
