    Following the recent announcement that Peter Morgan would be joining Neal Purvis and Robert Wade to pen the 23rd James Bond film, Time Out London‘s Tom Huddleston has decided to write and open letter to the latest 007 screenwriter.

    The letter lays out some friendly dos and don’ts regarding how to create a successful Bond 23, such as giving the characters room to breathe, respecting the audience and not blatantly copying the Jason Bourne series.

    Dear Peter,

    While we at Time Out are thrilled that you, one of our country’s most talented and inquiring screenwriters, have accepted the challenge of penning the next James Bond movie, there are a few salient points we feel you might like to keep in mind while writing what will inevitably become one of 2011’s most important and, we hope, enjoyable movies. We trust you accept our advice in the friendly spirit with which it’s intended…

    Do you agree with the points they make? Feel free to offer your own suggestions here on the Forums.
