The Next James Bond Movie Will Not Be Written by Matthew Weiner

The Next James Bond Movie Will Not Be Written by Matthew Weiner

The U.K.’s London Daily Mail, waxing imaginative about the future of the James Bond franchise in the wake of Daniel Craig’s post-"Spectre" reluctance to return to the long-lived series, has reported that "Mad Men" creator Matt Weiner is working on a 60s-era 007 reboot.

Of course Ian Fleming’s original Bond was brought to the movies during the 60s, as Sean Connery starred in "Dr. No" and "From Russia with Love," among the strongest entries in the series until Sam Mendes brought it back to its former glory.

A rep for Weiner stated that the writer is working on several other projects that have nothing to do with Bond.
