'James Bond' screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are quitting the franchise after the record-breaking success of 'Skyfall'.

The film, which stars Daniel Craig in the most successful Bond film in the franchise's history, marked the fifth time Purvis and Wade have joined forces to write a 007 movie since 1999's 'The World Is Not Enough'.

The British screenwriting duo spoke about their time working on Bond movies at a writing masterclass in the Al Rayyan Theater at the Doha Tribeca Film Festival in Qatar on Monday.

Purvis says, "When we were originally asked to come in to meet the Bond people, we weren't expecting to be walking straight into a meeting with Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson (Bond producers). We certainly were not expecting to be kept around for 15 years. We were going to stop with 'Quantum of Solace', but it's good to go out on a high with 'Skyfall'."

Wade adds, "We're very happy to have done five Bond movies, I think we've gotten it to a good place. I know that ('Skyfall' co-writer) John Logan and Sam Mendes have come up with a plot for another one, which takes the pressure off (us) because these films take up a lot of time."
