James Bond screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have revealed that franchise producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson have always wanted to delve into 007's past.

Purvis and Wade, who have worked on every Bond movie since 1999's The World Is Not Enough, told Digital Spy that they completely reworked Skyfall's finale to take him back to his childhood home with M.

"That idea [to go to Skyfall lodge] came very late in the day. It was in the last two weeks when we were working on the script," Wade said.

"The third act had been action stuff in a European city and we weren't very happy with it and we just felt it was ordinary. This idea came, and we wrote it up as a page and a half, ran it by Sam, Barbara and Michael and said we just want to tear up the third act and do a completely new thing. »
