Skyfall Star Ben Whishaw Insists: 'New Bond To Film This Year'

Skyfall star Ben Whishaw, who plays a youthful incarnation of gadget expert Q in the latest Bond film, has hinted that the follow-up to the massively successful 007 movie may be ready to begin filming as early as this year.

Speaking to The Radio Times, the actor revealed that the next instalment of the Bond franchise could begin filming in as little as 'about ten months’ from now, should everything continue to go to plan. Whishaw was quick to cover his tracks though, should things fall behind schedule with the film, adding, ‘Well, hopefully. Let’s hope so!’

Whishaw and 007 himself, Daniel Craig, have confirmed their place in the follow-up Bond film, with Craig signed on to appear in at least three more Bond films. One person who is yet to commit to the follow-up, but has voiced interest, is Skyfall director Sam Mendes, who admitted at last weeks BAFTAs that he would 'certainly consider' stepping behind the camera again, but wont commit until he has seen a script.

Skyfall became the most successful James Bond film of all time  after taking in over $1 billion at the box office worldwide. It's massive takings made it the most successful British film and most successful Sony/MGM film of all time too and it is also nominated for five Academy Awards, with Adele's titular single expected to take away the gong for Best Original Song. Not a bad way to spend your 50th anniversary really.
