Producers to unveil details of new James Bond film

- Associated Press - Thursday, November 3, 2011

LONDON (AP) - Evildoers beware. After a break, James Bond is back.

Producers on Thursday are revealing the title and cast of 007's 23rd screen adventure, due for release next year.

Multiple media reports say it will be titled "Skyfall," and Javier Bardem has said he will play a bad guy.

Daniel Craig stars as the suave secret agent for a third time in the film, directed by Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes ("American Beauty").

Bond's future was thrown into doubt when studio MGM filed for bankruptcy in 2010. But its new management and Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced earlier this year that the spy would live to fight another day.

The movie is due to be released a year from now, four years after Bond's last adventure, "Quantum of Solace."
