As reported in many many places to name of the next Bond film, the 23rd in the series, will indeed be called Skyfall.
Daniel Craig will star in his 3rd outing as 007 and Dame Judi Dench returns again as M while the film is to be directed by Oscar winner Sam Mendes.
Making their mark as Bond girls will be Naomie Harris and French actress Berenice Marlohe. Location for the film include China and Turkey as well as places a little closer to home in Scotland and of course London.
Despite recent reports that the film would forfeit action for drama in a hope to be an Oscar contender were laid to rest with both Mandes and producer Barbara Broccoli maintaining that the story involved lots of action.
A release date of October 26 2012 has been set for the UK and will follow close in the rest of the world.
The filming of this episode has been delayed due to financial woes at owner MGM, but the delay does mean that it will get a release in the year of the first Bond movie, Dr. No's first appearance in cinemas, what better way to celebrate.
Like a bad migraine that simple wont go away, after the release of a new Bond movie the rumour mill starts on the next, until such a time that lead actor, Villain, Bond girl, director and script writer has been confirmed, and to make it all the more "interesting" Bond 23 has been hit with the bankruptcy of MGM, opening it up even more to the gossip.
With fears that Daniel Craig might leave and attached director Sam Mandes might also abandon the project Bond 23 looked like it may have to take a whole different turn, and with seemingly no money to make it, would it actually be made at all, well that was never going to happen.
With all the legal ramblings over MGM out of the way, Deadline are now reporting that the film is well on track and even give a release date of November 9th 2012 (isn't Peter Jackson releasing a film around then as well?) in theaters. Craig will be on board as Bond and Mandes will direct, all good so far.
And the cream on the cake, and this is clearly just a coincidence, is that 2012 is the 50th anniversary of the release of a certain DR. No, or the first Bond movie to all those unfamiliar.
