James Bond Comes Back To Movie Theaters In 2012S

James Bond will be coming back to the big screen for his 23rd film on November 9, 2012, starring Daniel Craig as the super spy, a film that's reportedly a direct follow-up to 2008's Quantum of Solace.

The next Bond film was originally planned for a 2011 release, but financial woes at studio MGM pushed back the release of the film. Bond's next outing is still untitled, but director Sam Mendes (Road to Perdition, Jarhead, American Beauty) is on board to direct. Deadline reports that the next Bond video game "recently got the go-ahead."

Whether that's the rumored Raven Software-developed 007 game with an emphasis on stealth gameplay we don't yet know. But don't be surprised when the inevitable Bond 23 game is announced.

While publisher Activision clearly does not need a film to tie its James Bond games to—see James Bond 007: Blood Stone—it did tap Call of Duty: Black Ops developer Treyarch to handle an adaptation of Quantum of Solace. With that studio seemingly all-in on Call of Duty and the future of Blood Stone developer Bizarre Creations uncertain, we have to wonder who Activision might task with handling the next Bond game. Will it be Raven?

Any other suggestions?
