The next 007 movie

SKYFALL

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.

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

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.

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

Here's where I agree with you. Those are the only two Roger Moore 007 flicks that I like and have the DVDs of. The reason they were better was that he played the character in a more serious manner. Not Craig serious, but Connery serious.

And OBTW, Dalton got a raw deal when EOn switched to Brosnan. He was a very good Bond.

While I agree that Moore brought a little too much cheese, I don't know for sure if that was him, or the director wanting that. I'm going to blame it on the director since he also decided it would be a good idea to tie in the fat police officer annoying guy into one movie, and then coincidentally have him on vacation in Japan in another movie. (The scene where bond is escaping on the boat with the school of ninjas chasing him).

It's the same thing with Brosnan. He wasn't a bad BOND... but the director/writer had him doing way too much unrealistic stuff with too many stupid one liners. The Bronson movies writing was terrible, except for Goldeneye which was mostly just guilty of cheesy one liners.

The difference between Moore and Brosnan's situations is theat I kept reading their interviews when Moore admitted that the producers gave him some free reign over his portrayal of Bond while Brosnan's interviews revealed he was campaigning for an edgier Bond. Moore insists that Bond is a comic book character and must be played somewhat comical.

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.

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.
