Bond 24 production delayed

Shooting of Bond 24 was scheduled to begin in October so it could meet the November 5, 2015 release date, but the project has now received a delay until December. The studio is citing extensive rewrites to the script as the reason for the setback.

Writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade left the world of 007 after Skyfall and handed the reigns over to John Logan to write the script for Bond 24. It seems as though that was a mistake as Purvis and Wade have been brought back in to rewrite the script for to give it more "punch." Apparently this includes amping up the relationship between Bond and Miss Moneypenny (aka, Naomi Harris), placing in more gags, and a more involved interaction between Bond and Ralph Fienne's version of M. The pair previously worked on The World is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, and Skyfall.

I wouldn't let this worry anyone. Skyfall was 100% awesome and it ended on a very high note. Not to mention Sam Mendes is returning to direct Bond 24. Even if the release date receives a slight delay I don't think this is a bad thing at all.
