Bond 23 - announced
50-years to the day since Sean Connery was announced as the first Bond, the twenty-third James Bond film has been confirmed in a Sony press conference today. The title has been announced as Skyfall and will be Daniel Craig's third outing (and speculated to be his last) in the title role. Sam Mendes is directing. The film will also star Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe and the villain of the piece will be portrayed by Javier Bardem.
Producer, Michael G Wilson, said "When Dr. No was going to be released, nobody thought we were going to get to fifty years of Bond, let alone 23 pictures"
Mendes has commented that Skyfall is being shot in Whitehall and Pinewood.
The film is expected to hit UK cinemas in Autumn 2012...
