Title Of New James Bond Movie: 'Devil May Care'?

The Sun's Bizarre has reported that the new James Bond movie, and follow-on from this year's enormously successful Skyfall, will be titled Devil May Care after Sebastian Faulk's 2008 novel which was written to celebrate a century since Bond creator Ian Fleming's 1908 birth. Sam Mendes, after originally saying he wouldn't return to direct the 24th Bond film, has been confirmed as the director to the Skyfall sequel.

Although no title has been confirmed yet, Daniel Craig is expected to return as the titular Bond for the fourth time, despite the next film rumoured to be the 45 year-old actor's last after Skyfall showed the spy aging in an increasingly technological world. Bond fans shouldn't hold their breath for the next instalment of 007 adventures - due to Mendes' theatre commitments the as-yet untitled 24th Bond film will be released in late 2015. There's no wonder that producer's were happy to accommodate Mendes' other plans into the timeframe for the next film: 2012's Skyfall was the most successful Bond to date, making £720 million ($1.1 billion) worldwide, winning two Oscars and being named 'Outstanding British Film' by BAFTA.

The plotline of Devil May Care follows dashing secret agent Bond on his investigation into the evil and vengeful megalomaniac chemist, Dr. Julius Gorner who has a deformed hand and a hatred for the UK. Set partially in Iran, Bond must intervene in Gorner's scheme to flood the UK with illegal drugs and launch a terrorist attack on the Soviet Union when he is captured. Though the novel is set in 1967, Mendes' directing is likely to bring the story into modern times, to follow on from Skyfall's technology-heavy, computer hacking theme.

British director Mendes has spoken of his anticipation towards bringing Bond to life for a second time, saying that he is "very much looking forward to taking up the reins again and to working with Daniel Craig, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for a second time," and that he is "very pleased that by giving me the time [he needs] to honour all [his] theatre commitments, the producers have made it possible for [him] to direct Bond 24."
