Bond No. 24 Announced
It's four months before the scheduled premiere of the next James Bond movie, Casino Royale, but on Thursday, Bond producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced that the 22nd 007 movie will have its debut on May 2, 2008. The title of the movie was not disclosed -- nor even whether a script had been written -- but the producers did announce that Daniel Craig will return to portray Bond. "As we wrap production on Casino Royale, we couldn't be more excited about the direction the franchise is heading with Daniel Craig," Wilson and Broccoli said in a statement. "Daniel has taken the origins of Ian Fleming's James Bond portraying, with emotional complexity, a darker and edgier 007."
