Skyfall - probable title for Bond 23
With Quantum of Solace, Sony Pictures purchased several domain names regarding the title of the film before it went public. We believe that they have done this again for Bond 23. On 3rd October Sony Pictures purchased over 15 domain names, suspiciously relating to James Bond. Observe...

At first, we thought it was going to be the name of a new James Bond video game, but we soon found domains including the words 'movie' and 'film'. A few weeks ago, Daniel Craig hinted to us that they had a title in the making but wouldn't reveal it yet. Could this be the name of the 23rd James Bond film? I don't know, but it sure is better than Quantum of Solace though, eh?
Filming in Scotland confirmed
A few months ago we heard a rumour that part of the film will be taking place in a castle in Scotland. We recently found out that Sctoland is a confirmed location. The scene is expected to take place at Duntrune Castle on Poltalloch Estate near Lochgilphead. The Duntrune Castle is the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland. They plan to start filming in February 2012.
“Preparatory work begins as soon as everybody sobers up after New Year, but I can’t go into details. I am sworn to secrecy.”
Scenes from From Russia With Love have been filmed there; a coincidence because they are also going to be filming in Turkey, which is another location in FRWL.
Bond Girl casting confirmed
Last week, rumours began that Berenice Marlohe had opted for the role of a Bond Girl in Bond 23. Today, we have been informed that the casting will all be revealed soon, and that Berenice Marlohe has landed a role. Another actress who has reportedly landed a role in the film is Helen McCrory (famous for playing Narcissa Malfoy in the Harry Potter series). This report comes from reliable tabloids, and although they say that the casting has been confirmed, we like to wait until one of the crew members mentions it.
Another confirmed role is M's Chief of Staff, Tanner. Rory Kinnear will be returning to the role.
