Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have announced that the 23rd James Bond adventure, titled “Skyfall,” will go into production Monday.
The film, from Albert R. Broccoli’s Eon Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment, will be directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for his third film as James Bond 007. The screenplay is written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan.
“Skyfall” will begin its worldwide roll-out in the U.K. and Ireland on Oct. 26 and in North America on Nov. 9, 2012.
Along with Craig, the cast for “Skyfall” will include Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench, Naomie Harris, Bérénice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Whishaw.
