Bond film called Skyfall

By Tim Masters, Entertainment and arts correspondent, BBC News

The title of the 23rd James Bond film has been confirmed as Skyfall.

The latest 007 adventure will star Daniel Craig for the third time. Leading ladies have been confirmed as French actress Berenice Marlohe and Naomie Harris.

Skyfall is being directed by Sam Mendes, who won an Oscar for 1999's American Beauty.

Mendes said the storyline will take the secret agent to London, China, Turkey and Scotland.

It will see Bond's loyalty tested to M, his superior, while espionage headquarters MI6 faces an attack.

The movie, which sees the return of Dame Judi Dench as spy boss M, will also star Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Javier Bardem as the villain of the piece.

It will be released in the UK on 26 October 2012.

Craig told reporters in London that the cast would start filming sequences for the new movie later on Thursday.

Much speculation about the new film has focused on what Mendes will bring to the franchise, with some suggesting he will tone down - or even abandon altogether - the action sequences.

But the director denied that this was the case. He told reporters in London that the "fantastic script" had "all the elements of a classic Bond movie, including - to quell any rumours - lots of action".

When asked what fans could expect from the latest film, he added: "The movie will reveal everything, and there's lots of surprises."
Producer Barbara Broccoli said no-one had yet been chosen to write and perfom the Bond theme tune.

Financial troubles

Next year marks the 50th anniversary of the first Bond movie, 1962's Dr No.

James Bond is one of the longest-running franchises in film history, but Bond 23 will mark the end of a four year gap.
The last 007 outing was in 2008's Quantum of Solace, directed by Marc Forster.

Work on the 23rd film was suspended in April 2010 because of uncertainty over the company's future.

The franchise had been on hold amid financial troubles, with MGM filing for bankruptcy protection last November.

A rescue deal and restructuring plan put US firm Spyglass Entertainment at the helm of MGM, which had struggled due to several box office flops and a DVD sales slump.

Craig - who made his Bond debut in Casino Royale in 2006 - is the sixth actor to play the British secret agent in the official Bond series.
Sir Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Sir Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan preceded him in the iconic role.

Casino Royale, was the most successful instalment in the franchise's 49-year history, making $594m (385m) worldwide.

I hope they extend Craigs contract.

They went from some out of this world, crazy stupid shit, with Pierce to a badass with Craig. Liking him as Bond.

Craig is good. I'm glad they got him in again. Hopefully he continues to be Bond.

YAY!!!!!!!! Love Craig as Bond.

Frankie 11-03-2011 03:44 PM

Craig is a very good actor, and can play someone badass. But he's not Bond in my book. Connery was IT! After him they broke the mold.

meh. So your saying they just should have stopped? I mean, I could do without Pierce and Timothy Dalton... but I enjoyed a lot of Roger Moore flicks.

Still haven't seen Quantum of Solace. I bought it about a year ago and it's still in its wrapper.

It would have been great if the ****ing director didn't have ADD. Instead, it was just needlessly twitchy and annoying. Glad they shitcanned that idiot. I absolutely loved the Casino Royale and look forward to Craig continuing the role.

Eh, I never much liked Connery as Bond. I was the one guy the really, really liked George Lazenby. He was always my favorite. Then Craig's version of Casino Royale came out. Wow. I was let down by Quantum of Solace.

QoS, underwhelming. I absolutely loved Casino Royale, and Craig is probably my favorite Bond, above Lazenby (who I still maintain was the best, but never got a fair shake because he followed Connery).

My wife liked Quantum, and while I didn't dislike it, it's well below CR for me. I still like Craig's Bond, even in this one.

It was The Bond Identity, or Quantum of Supremacy... something along those lines.

I've never seen a Bond before that scared me. They were always suave and debonair. With Daniel Craig's Bond, he's the kind of guy I don't want to be in an alley with. That character is frightening to me, and I love it.

Yeah, Quantum had potential, but failed to deliver. They were also rushing it to get done to take advantage of Casino Royale's momentum.

Casino Royale is one of the great, great Bond films ever, hopefully the new Bond will be closer to that than Quantum.

Moore was a great Saint, and a terrible Bond who took the role to clowning levels. Dalton is my second best Bond.

Craig is so badass in this role. Loved both Casino Royale and QoS and will look forward to this one as well.

Wow, thats interesting....never met one person who liked Dalton as Bond. I gew up with Roger Moore Bonds, most are pretty corny now, but always liked For Your Eyes Only and Spy Who Loved Me.

I liked Dalton as well. I always thought he got a bum rap.
