    Plus it's(MIII) another SONY movie. So yeah the rumors and likelihood are high.

    Which makes sense when you watch the documentaries on the Blade Runner Blu-ray and hear that the Los Angeles of Blade Runner already exists today in places like Shanghai.

    I am looking forward to this. I am disappointed they didn't use another Fleming title (Property of a Lady is just dying to be used and Risico isn't bad either) but that's a minor thing. They have Q back (and I like the guy they've chosen based on his work in The Hour) and if Newton ends up playing Moneypenny, or even if they have someone else play her (Kate Winslet, please; see the Jeffrey Deaver Bond novel), all will be right with the world.

    ^ Unlikely that Winslet will be in a Mendes movie, I would've thought...

    Why? Did I miss something?

    Just in reply to something posted a couple pages back, Anna Chapman would be perfect for a Bond film cameo. Remember these are technically British films, not American films, and really not a heck of a lot of Americans are mad at her either (even Joe Biden told Jay Leno it wasn't his idea to send her back). She's a big TV star or something in Russia now so it'd add to Skyfall's European/Asian cachet. And frankly if she hadn't been deported she'd have been on Dancing with the Stars by now anyway. Heck, if I was EON productions I'd go for controversy points and cast her as the Bond girl in a remake of or sequel to From Russia with Love, if she can act (and clearly, based on her exploits, she can!).

    ^ They've been separated for over 2 years. I don't know if it's amicable or ugly but they haven't worked together since.

    Even if MI6 got it wrong, the timeline doesn't add up. Up until recently Craig has been in England filming. Whether that be around London, or at Pinewood studios, he never left the country. Only recently did he leave England to head to Turkey to film the opening.

    Hmm didn't know that.

    This is just me but I find some really odd parallel or vague connection.

    Daniel Craig marries Rachel weisz who's ex is Darren aronofsky

    Kate Winslet separates from Sam Mendes


    Maybe i'm looking too deep or at nothing.

    I think Mendes and Winslet are fairly amicable, if only for the sake of their child (well children given Mendes was stepfather to Kate's first child too) but I doubt they'll work together again.

    My dream Moneypenny casting would still be Emilia Fox but not gonna happen sadly.

    Sony demoed their 2012 lineup at a recent Convention in Mexico, and of course among the movies being previewed was 'Skyfall'

    Rest can be found comingsoon.net

    The other thing confirmed in that article is that they are going right into Bond 24 for a 2014 release.

    I hadn't noticed who wrote this post until I reached this sentenace. At that point, I didn't need to check. ;)

    I don't know. I'd rather they work slowly and polish the script so we don't get a Quantum Of Solace again

    Quantum of Solace was a victim of the writer's strke. Craig and Forster actually had to come up with dialogue on the fly for a few rough patches in the script.

    Exactly, I think it gives them plenty of time to get a decent script together--hall back in the day they used to put out a Bond a year (which might be pushing it a bit nowdays!)

    As long as the quality is there. The Moore films ran into trouble being assembly-lined out too quickly. Also they need to give Craig room to breathe in other roles otherwise he might bolt if he finds himself stuck doing nothing like Bond (very few people can name anything else Roger Moore did other than Bond between 1973 and 1985 - I can only think of a cameo in Cannonball Run, an obscure war film called Sea Wolves, which was actually erroneously reported as a Bond film by some media when it was announced, and an even more obscure action film called ffolkes. That's pretty much all I can think of).

    Exactly. As soon as The Spy Who Loved Me came out we had "Moonraker"

    They weren't bad but they weren't that great.

    "For Your Eyes Only" was great.

    Followed by two lackluster entries with Octopussy and A View to a Kill
