Judi Dench back for James Bond 23
It wouldn’t be a modern-day 007 film without Judi Dench on hand — and she will be returning for the next James Bond movie, it’s been confirmed.
Heading into production later this year, under the watchful eye of director Sam Mendes, will be the delayed twenty-third James Bond movie. Daniel Craig is definitely returning in the lead role, and while we await formal casting confirmation for one or two other parts, it's been revealed that one series regular is definitely back.
Dame Judi Dench has been playing M since 1995's GoldenEye, and at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards earlier this week, she confirmed that she would be back again for the next film. She didn't reveal anything more than that, though, saying, "My lips are sealed. I can't tell you anything at all!"
The new James Bond movie is released on 9th November 2012.
