Good news ladies, Daniel Craig will reprise his role as James Bond and start work on a new film this year.

The 23rd instalment of the British spy franchise had been put on hold following reported financial problems for movie studio MGM. However, Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli confirmed yesterday that production will begin later this year.

The new movie is scheduled to hit cinemas on November 9 2012 and Sam Mendes will be directing it. He has previously worked on American Beauty, Road to Perdition and Jarhead.

The last Bond movie was Quantum of Solace which was released in 2008 and it was feared the long delay in making the new film would prompt 42-year-old Craig to consider quitting the role. This will be his third outing as the spy, after he appeared in Quantum of Solace and 2006 hit, Casino Royale.

Craig took over from smooth-talking Pierce Brosnan and gave the legendary role a grittier edge. Last year, the star said he had “every confidence” the movie would go ahead.
