Industry Agog With 007 Rumours
The latest James Bond film - 22 in the series - to follow Casino Royale, has been officially announced by Eon Productions, set for a May 2008 release date. Daniel Craig is said to be playing his second 007.
Recently regular writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have scripted the films, including The World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day and the first draft of Casino Royale. Paul Haggis is credited with having polished the script.
According to Variiety last week, tipped director Roger Michell dropped out due to creative differences with the producers.
Michell and Curtis both worked on Britcom Notting Hill (1999)
