No, it has been announced that the two films will have independent storylines and won't be filmed back to back.

EON, the company that produces the Bond series, recently won a lengthy lawsuit that finally grants them the right to use both the villainous organization SPECTRE (which was featured in most of the Connery films as well as George Lazenby's single Bond film) and the character of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the founder and head of SPECTRE. (Both were created by the late Kevin McClory, a film producer with whom Ian Fleming was developing a Bond film project that never came through; McClory and Fleming later had a falling-out and Fleming used some of McClory's ideas without permission, leading to lengthy legal battles that led to McClory being credited as producer on THUNDERBALL and having the right to produce a remake under his own banner, NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN.) Naturally, this has led to rampant rumors and speculation that the next film will feature these classic elements, but at present nothing is known about the script or plot of the film and while it is possible that SPECTRE and Blofeld will be worked in, it is not a guarantee.
