Cinematographer Roger Deakins Not Returning For BOND 24

Roger Deakins Skyfall

The last James Bond film, Skyfall, was filled with a number of lovely things and moments, all preserved in the beautiful photography of cinematographer Roger Deakins, whose work brought the look of the franchise to new artistic heights. And while Deakins has a history of working with Skyfall director Sam Mendes, he won’t be rejoining the director when shooting on the next Bond adventure takes place later this year.

The news was brought to us late yesterday from In Contention’s Kris Tapley –

Tapley doesn’t elaborate further as to why Deakins wouldn’t be back, but it is not hard to imagine why. Deakins has always been a much sought after cinematographer and very probably already has a busy schedule ahead of him already. Deakins passed on working with another longtime collaborator, the Coen Brothers, on their film Inside Llewn Davis so perhaps they have him secured already for their next film?
