John Logan, Tony Award winner for his drama Red, is set to write the next two films in the 007 series, according to Deadline.com. The latest James Bond installment, Skyfall, was co-written by the playwright and opens on November 9 in the United States, following its London premiere on October 23.
Logan has reportedly pitched an original storyline that spans over two movies. No titles or release dates have been announced for the films at this time.
Logan's first Broadway credit was Red, which received six Tony Awards in 2010, including Best Play. He also wrote off-Broadway's Never the Sinner. His screen work includes award-winning films such as Hugo, The Aviator and Gladiator. His new Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan-themed play Peter and Alice, starring Bond vets Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw, will play the West End in spring 2013. He is also working on adapting Jersey Boys for the big screen and a one-woman Broadway show about famed Hollywood agent Sue Mengers.
