'James Bond 23' Gets A Title

Shaken, not stirred. Again:
LONDON (AP) -- Screen spy James Bond is returning next year in a new movie called "Skyfall" with a star-studded cast, producers said Thursday.

Daniel Craig makes his third appearance as the suave secret agent the film, directed by Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes ("American Beauty").

Spanish star Javier Bardem will play the chief villain in 007's 23rd screen adventure, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson said. British actors Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw will play as-yet-undisclosed roles.

"There's lots of surprises," Mendes told reporters, as he confirmed filming will begin Thursday and will take place in London's government district of Whitehall, at Pinewood Studios outside the British capital and on location in Scotland, Istanbul and Shanghai.

"I think this has all the elements of a classic Bond movie, including - to quell any rumors - a lot of action," Mendes said.
Yes! I'm a Bond-geek through and through. My brother and I still get giddy when TBS or Spike has a Bond Marathon (usually around the holidays for some reason).

Good times.

And Judi Dench will be reprising her role as 'M' as well. So that's good news too.
