Because running around spying as James Bond is clearly not enough for him, Daniel Craig has decided that what his career needs is another espionage thriller. At least, that's what we assume given that he’s signed on to The Whole Truth.
Details about the film are Eyes Only for now, but given the genre and the title we suspect a courtroom might be involved at some point. Yet with Enough’s Nicholas Kazan on board to write the script, it was clearly the concept – whatever that is – that grabbed Craig’s interest.
Atlas Entertainment is producing the film, which doesn’t yet appear to have a director attached. It’ll be for sale at the European Film Market, and Craig’s name should go a fair way to generating interest.
Still, if it does aim to shoot this year, it might need to get a wiggle on, as the film currently known as Bond 24 is likely to begin shooting under the aegis of Sam Mendes. Writer John Logan recently talked up what he aims to deliver with the next 007 outing. "My goal is to write a great movie that's appropriate, to build on what we did on Skyfall, but make it its own unique animal," Logan said. "The themes, ideas and the characters from Skyfall can obviously continue on, because it is a franchise, and it is an ongoing story. So I think there's resonance from Skyfall in the new movie."
