Travel deals

Sam Mendes is coming back to direct another James Bond film with Daniel Craig, right, following the enormously successful "Skyfall," The Associated Press reports. The British director Mendes had said earlier that "Skyfall" would be his lone entry in the 007 canon, but Bond producers and Sony Pictures announced his return Thursday. The as-yet-titled Bond film is scheduled to be released in fall 2015. The script is by "Skyfall" screenwriter John Logan. Released last year, "Skyfall" made more than $1.1 billion worldwide.
