There are reports that say two-time Bond movie director Sam Mendes is done after “Spectre”. But while he’s still on the 007 train, he aims to make the best of it. And it’s all for the fans, according to him. In an interview with BBC, Mendes said that “This is a bigger movie than Skyfall. It’s shot in more places – we were in Mexico City and Tangiers and northern Sahara and Rome and the Alps and London. It’s been an enormous undertaking.”
He also confirmed that the theme song for the film has already been recorded and that it will be officially revealed soon. Mendes did not reveal the name of the singer, nor the song title. He merely teased: “I can say that the song’s been recorded and it’s fantastic and I’m very excited about it. You won’t have to wait long.”
Here’s the summary: “In the movie, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.”
