No more James Bond say Skyfall writers

The writing duo behind Skyfall have revealed that it will be their last James Bond film.

Neal Purvis and Robert Wade first wrote the script for 1999's The World Is Not Enough and have worked on every Bond film since, including Die Another Day, Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.

But following the record breaking success of Skyfall they have announced that they will not return to the franchise.

Writer John Logan, who joined the duo on Skyfall, is due to pen the next two films in the franchise which will still feature Daniel Craig as the British super spy.

Speaking at the Doha Tribeca Film Festival, Robert said: "We're very happy to have done five Bond movies, I think we've gotten it to a good place.

"I know that John Logan and [director] Sam Mendes have come up with a plot for another one, which takes the pressure off because these films take up a lot of time."

Purvis added: "We were going to stop with Quantum of Solace, but it's good to go out on a high with Skyfall."

The duo also wrote the Bond-inspired spoof Johnny English.
