Die Hard Bond fans will be pleased to know that the 23rd Bond movie has finally got the go ahead to be made this year after being put on hold due to financial constraints.
The 23rd Bond film will star Daniel Craig – his third time playing 007 – and will be directed by Sam Mendes, the director of American Beauty, and is certainly appropriately
timed as the film will mark the 50th Anniversary of Dr No which was the very 1st Bond Film starring the ever so smooth Sean Connery. The 23rd Bond film is rumoured to be part of year-long celebrations of the most famous spy.
MGM has the rights to the Bond films, based on the books by Ian Fleming and is thought to be the longest running franchise in film history. Given all the history I feel that the new film will certainly be worth the wait.
Daniel Craig – who made his Bond debut in Casino Royale in 2006 – is the sixth actor to play the British secret agent on the big screen, after Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan.
Filming is due to start later this year & is expected to be in cinemas November 9th 2012
So to celebrate this I would like to start a poll, no rhyme or reason to this, just would like to see out of interest who is your favourite actor to have played James Bond?
