Bond 23 Cast & Crew
Bond 23 Blog
For months now we've been kept in suspense. Many rumours have been made about who is going to feature in the 23rd Bond film. Here is what we know so far.
Daniel Craig - James Bond
Daniel Craig has a contract with MGM to do more films as James Bond. He has also stated that he will be returning to the role.
Judi Dench - M
Judi Dench has said that she will be returning (presumably as M) in Bond 23. It is unknown how many more films she plans to do.
Naomi Harriss - Miss Moneypenny
There has been a lot of to-do about this over the past few weeks. According to the Daily Mail, Naomi Harris (famous for her appearance in Pirates of the Carribean) will be playing Miss Moneypenny. This is, so far, the most reliable source we have found, but it hasn't been confirmed by any of the existing cast or Sam Mendes (director).
Ralph Fiennes - Q
We are not certain that Ralph Fiennes has been accepted in the film, but rumours have aroused that he is going to portray the character of Q who, like Moneypenny, hasn't featured as all in the Bond films since Die Another Day. We are currently researching this statement further. We believe that Ralph Fiennes has applied for a part in the film, but it is unlikey that he would play such an important character.
Javier Bardem - Unknown
Javier Bardem is said to have the role of the film's villain. No specific name has been given yet and no further information is available.
Highly unlikely that Simon has been accepted or even applied for the role. It is merely a rumour which we are currently researching.
*According to recent sources, Olivia Wilde has not applied or been accepted in the new film. She was screen-tested for the role of Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale.
Following the latest Bond film, Bond 23, a range of books will be released in late 2012.
The Bond Chronicle - A book by Dorling Kindersley about every Bond film including Bond 23. It will be released in November 2012 ready for christmas.
Fifty Years of Bond - Posters will be available in shops and online promoting the 007 franchise's 50th Anniversary
Bond on Set - The making of Bond 23
XL James Bond - A large 500 page book to be released in 2012. The editor, Paul Duncan has literally thousands of images and more files full of info than MI6 itself.
We have recently found several predicted release dates in different countries.
UK - 26th October 2012
Ireland - 26th October 2012
USA - 09th November 2012
Canada - 09th November 2012
Sweden - 09th November 2012
These dates will probably change nearer the time, so please make sure you are
Production is scheduled to begin in late 2011. There has been much debate about the title of the film. Possible titles could be 'The Property of a Lady', 'Risisco', 'The Hildebrand Rarity', or '007 in New York'. These were all names of other James Bond novels written by Ian Fleming. They could make up a title of their own, or use a chapter title from one of the novels too. Producers for 'Quantum of Solace' made the final decision of the name after they had started filming. It has been rumoured that the film will be called 'Red Sky at Night' but, again, this hasn't been confirmed yet.
Daniel Craig has said that this film will not carry on from 'Quantum of Solace' but instead will follow similarly to the older James Bond films. A lot of us fans have found that the newer films weren't as good. Daniel Craig has also announced that he is exited to see Moneypenny and Q in the new film, although these facts have not been confirmed yet. Daniel Craig has a contract with the producers stating that he will portray James Bond for five films (the first two being Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace)
Rumours say that actress Rachel Weisz will portray the next Bond girl, accompanied by previous Bond girl actress Olga Kurylenko returning as Camille. But, again, this is just gossip from the news and internet forums. Other possible Bond girl actresses include Jennifer Aniston, Megan Fox, Angelina Jolie, Olivia Wilde, Elisha Cuthbert, and Freida Pinto.
