New James Bond film is announced

4th November 2011

Details about the new James Bond film have finally been revealed, with Daniel Craig set to return as the British secret agent next year in Skyfall.

Craig's third appearance as 007 will once again feature Dame Judi Dench as M, with the producers announcing it will not be based on any of Ian Fleming's books, despite speculation to the contrary.

Many had suggested it would be influenced by Risico or The Hildebrand Rarity – two short stories contained in the collection For Your Eyes Only - but producer Barbara Broccoli claimed it would be an original story by series stalwarts Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

The plot summary reads: 'Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.'

The supporting cast will include Albert Finney, Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes, who is heavily rumoured to play the main antagonist in the film.

Production on Skyfall will begin shortly, with the film expected to be released next year.

The film's details were unveiled 50 years to the day since the announcement that Sean Connery would become the first ever actor to play James Bond on the big screen, in Dr No.
