Screen spy James Bond is returning next year in a new movie called “Skyfall” with a star-studded cast, producers said Thursday.
Daniel Craig makes his third appearance as the suave secret agent in the film, directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (“American Beauty”).
“This has all the elements of a classic Bond movie, including — to quell any rumors — a lot of action,” Mendes said.
Javier Bardem will play the villain in 007’s 23rd screen adventure, out next fall, producers said.
Naomie Harris plays a field agent named Eve, with Berenice Marlohe as what she calls“a glamorous, enigmatic character” named Severine. AP
