First picture of Bond from 'Skyfall' released

Skyfall - First pic of James Bond, in Shanghai

A single picture hardly justifies a blog post (or does it?), but I happen to be quite excited for Skyfall, the next James Bond movie. This picture shows Daniel Craig in Shanghai, China. What he’s doing there, we do not know, but we know that he’s probably packing a few gadgets since Q (a young Q played by Ben Whisaw) has been confirmed for the film as well as two Bond girls, Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe.

James Bond 23 named 'Skyfall' - first plot details emerge

It's been a long time coming, but Bond 23 is finally moving ahead. In a press announcement today, the 23rd James Bond movie's title, cast, and first plot details were revealed. Named Skyfall, the new film is a completely new adventure, and not tied to any previous Ian Fleming or Bond book. Daniel Craig will return as 007 for a third time and Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Jarhead, Revolutionary Road) will direct. 

Here's what we know about the plot: "Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost."

Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig to wait for Bond 23 (for now)

There is no update on the status of Bond 23, but its director and star are still interested, if the financial meltdown at MGM can resolve itself sometime soon. While Director Sam Mendes (American Beauty) and Daniel Craig are both accepting projects in the short term, "insider sources" have told Deadline Hollywood that both plan to "fully come back to James Bond after MGM sorts itself out."

BOND 23 girls cast, and they're from HOUSE and SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE

That's right. MGM may be in trouble, but Bond 23 is still on the move with Sam Mendes (American Beauty) attached to direct. The Daily Mirror now confirms that Freida Pinto, who you may remember as Latika in Slumdog Millionaire, has landed a lead role in the film. Olivia Wilde, best known for her role on Fox's House M.D., is set to play a more villainous role in the film. More on Mendes, Pinto, and Bond after the jump.

BOND 23 is coming, but nobody knows when. Sam Mendes might direct, but nobody knows for sure.

For a covert operative, James Bond has been in the news a lot lately. Everyone seems to be wondering about the progress of the Bond 23--the unnamed 23rd Bond film. The problem centers around MGM, the owner of the Bond franchise, and how it happens to be $3.7 billion dollars in debt and auctioning off its assets. I compiled the last few days of big Bond news after the jump.
