"Bond 22" Claims May 8th, 2008

We're still a few months away from "Bond 21" ("Casino Royale"), but already we have a release date and a piece of directorial gossip on the NEXT James Bond flick. And yes, Daniel Craig will be returning for a second spin in the Aston Martin.

From IGN FilmForce: "Casino Royale has yet to see the light of day, but that isn't stopping MGM and Sony from moving ahead with the 22nd film in the secret agent action series. The film studios, along with producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that "Bond 22" will be released by Columbia Pictures on May 2, 2008. It's now confirmed that 007 newcomer Daniel Craig will be reprising the role of the legendary Brit action hero.

The film had been rumored for a fall 2007 release. Helmer Roger Michell is thought to be in negotiations to direct the "Casino Royale" follow-up which is, according to previously published news reports, based on an original story idea by Wilson. Michell previously directed Craig in 2004's "Enduring Love."

I'm excited about this bond movie. It seems to have the older bond movie feel to it. Lets hope they do a good job here and with the next one.

I'm sad for the marketers that they don't get the dream 2007 release. Its almost criminal that Bond happens to miss the year of his namesake. 007 in 07! It would have been perfect.
