Naomie Harris talks the future of Bond

Exclusive: “Skyfall is one part of a continuing story”

In issue 214 of Total Film magazine, Bond's brand new Miss Moneypenny, Naomie Harris, drops some tantalising hints about the future of 007.

Inside the issue - which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad, Harris reveals that her first Bond film, Skyfall, won't necessarily be her last, adding that Bond 24 could pick up threads left hanging by Skyfall.

“I feel like Skyfall is one part of a continuing story," the 37-year-old Brit says. "It needs completing and it needs the same storyteller."

With Sam Mendes on board to direct Bond 24, it looks like Harris should get her wish. Meanwhile, she's excited at the prospect of working with Daniel Craig again.

"I really got on with Daniel," she smiles. "It would be strange if someone else took the role. He's a brilliant Bond for our times. And I'm so relieved [about Mendes returning]. He chose me and had a vision for my character.

"I'd feel really weird working for someone who hadn't chosen me and didn't have that vision. I just want him to see it through."

Bond 24 opens in the UK on 23 October 2015.

      Mmm actually thought the next two bonds were going to be a two parter etc! Thought I read Craig saying it wasn't going to be a part of a two part story since it kinda failed with quantam leading on from Royale...... then again bond is now in Billion $ territory....... im excited for bond 24

      Mattsimus she didn't say that, she just said what she "feels" sounds like random movie hype really.

      Lol schwing indeed......, Yeah Millercrosses I get that and I read it also however the tagline for the article next to the word Exclusive reads in speech marks "Skyfall is part of a continuing story" leaving out the I feel part until of course you read the article, but this isnt the first time ive heard this so my guess is that at least the next two will be a continuation of the story, since Skyfall did so well at the box office, not to mention the fact it was also the 50th anniversary that helped!
