James Bond

Recommended Posts

The new James Bond film which will be the twenty-third one is finally back on. It was put on hold due to MGM's financial difficulties and almost looked like it wasn't going to happen and/or make its big expected debut for next years fifty year anniversary since the films inception. However, a few weeks ago it was announced they were beginning to work on the film again with a release date for November 9, 2012.

This will make the fifty year anniversary a go and has many Bond fans excited (me included) as the speculations continue to fly on what will be in store for this historic mark. James Bond, 007, is the longest running franchise in film history. It is said there will be some big events around the world with every actor who has played Bond present except one, Sean Connery. At this point and time it has been reported he has turned down invites and conversations on the big events. I guess we will have to wait and see????

The new Bond movie will have Daniel Craig playing Bond again, Judi Dench as M, and expected villain is being speculated to be Javier Bardem. It is also being said that Ralph Fiennes will play a "darker role" but unclear on more. The film will once again be produced by Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, directed by Sam Mendes, and written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and John Logan. It has also been speculated that part of the film will be filmed in New York.

Here is a list of all the James Bond films to date plus years and actors who played 007:

Dr. No (1962-Sean Connery)
