Craig, told reporters that the movie – which will be directed by Sam Mendes and shot in London, Scotland, Turkey, and China – would be “Bond with a capital B.”
Craig said he was “tremendously excited” to once again filling the Bond shoes for the first time since 2008′s “Quantum of Solace”.
Craig will be joined by Spanish star Javier Bardem as Bond’s nemisis, while British actors Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes, and Ben Whishaw will play as-yet-unknown parts.
Judi Dench returns as spy chief “M” and “Skyfall” introduces us to two new Bond girls…English actress Naomie Harris as a field agent named Eve and French performer Berenice Marlohe as “a glamorous, enigmatic character” named Severine.
“There’s lots of surprises,” said Mendes, who won an Academy Award for his 1999 film “American Beauty“.
“I think this has all the elements of a classic Bond movie, including – to quell any rumors – a lot of action,” Mendes said.
For Marlohe, it would be her first English feature after a string of appearances in French TV movies, series, and features in 2007.
