James Bond fans, stand to attention; a new movie has been all but confirmed, and will be ready in the next three years, MGM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Gary Barber explained.

“We are very excited about the franchise, we look forward to announcing a director soon,” Barber said. “We are currently developing the screenplay and working with our partners. We look forward to developing the script soon and signing a director. We are hoping within the next three years it will be released,” he added. Of course, Skyfall director Sam Mendes won’t be behind the camera for this one, having recently dropped out of the franchise. Barber said Mendes “did an amazing job on ‘Skyfall’. We are very thankful for the work that he did.” One person who will be returning is the blonde Bond, Daniel Craig, having signed up for two more 007 outings. This will be his fourth effort as the enigmatic spy, but he’ll do well to achieve a fifth with increasing calls for Idris Elba to take over mantle. Skyfall was an unprecedented success, bringing in $1.108 billion - $304.4m from domestic theaters and $804 million from overseas.

The film was widely considered to have been ‘robbed’ at The Oscars when it didn't pick up the award for cinematography, but Adele did receive a gold statuette for co-writing/belting out Skyfall, the song. “Within three years” means the latest it could come out is early 2016, you'd think.
