The new Bond movie, Spectre, will focus on James Bond’s childhood as an orphan, director Sam Mendes has revealed.
“Spectre is a movie entirely driven by Bond,” Sam Mendes explained in a new behind-the-scenes Vlog.
“He is on a mission from the very beginning.”
Sam Mendes also said the storyline would develop the characters of Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, and Ben Whishaw as Q.
The vlog also features footage of the characters shooting scenes, in addition to a glimpse of a car chase.
Sam Mendes directed Daniel Craig as 007 in Skyfall in 2012.
“The reasons I’m doing the second Bond movie are the reasons I would do any movie, really, which is all to do with the story,” he said.
James Bond’s tragic childhood in Scotland and the death of his parents featured in Skyfall – which shared the name of his family home.
Sam Mendes said the new film returned to the theme.
“It’s about whether or not to pursue the life he’s always pursued, whether he matters and is he going to continue or not.”
The first picture of Dave Bautista as the villainous assassin Mr. Hinx was publicly unveiled on February 26.
Spectre‘s cast also includes Lea Seydoux, Andrew Scott, Christoph Waltz and Monica Bellucci.
The new James Bond movie will open in cinemas worldwide on November 6.
