Oh, the excitement. A couple of weeks after Sony started to register domain names and tip the wink about “Skyfall” being the title of the next Bond movie, Eon productions formally announced the title and had a meet and greet with the press in London village.
Sam Mendes is the interesting choice behind the camera, regular Bond writers Neal Purvis, Robert Wade & John Logan are the writers and the cast is impressive to say the least. Daniel Craig returns, as does Judi Dench. Javier Bardem is the bad guy – an excellent choice, I hope you’ll agree – whilst Naomie Harris is playing a field agent – not the rumoured introduction of Moneypenny to the rebooted franchise. Albert Finney and Ralph Fiennes are also popping up, as though to emphasise that this is an 007 movie with serious acting cred. Bond’s presumed love interest is being played by Bérénice Marlohe, whose IMDB listing is here.
November 9th 2012 is when you can expect to see this in cinemas. Can’t wait.
