Peter Morgan to write Bond 23…

Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have verified that Peter Morgan will be penning the new Bond screenplay, alongside Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

Morgan has won and been nominated for various awards for his work on Frost/Nixon, The Queen, and The Last King of Scotland, just to name a few.
Though it seems as if Morgan has the capabilites of writing a quality screenplay, I’m still worried about Purvis and Wade’s involvement. It’s good to have Paul Haggis out of the picture, though, as I don’t think he really contributed anything outstanding to the last two Bond pictures. I’m glad to know that EON is actually planning ahead this time, and choosing a writer from the get-go, instead of scrambling around like a chicken with its head cut off, moving from writer to writer as they did with Quantum of Solace.

Overall, I think Morgan has potential. Let’s hope he adds something fresh to the series, while keeping it Bondian. I’ll be disappointed if we get another generic Bond as Bourne action flick.
