James Bond

According to the MI6 website, the 24th James Bond movie will begin lensing on December 6. Daniel Craig will return to play Britain's iconic spy, with Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Rory Kinnear also returning to reprise their roles.

Filming was supposed to begin earlier, but a rewrite of John Logan's script by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade pushed the start date back. Sam Mendes is directing.

Casting for the new Bond Girls and villains are currently under way. The female lead is said to be British, but there will also be a Scandinavian woman with whom Bond will have a brief relationship with.

As for the villains, one of them will be a "physically imposing" henchman ala Oddjob or Jaws, and he will tussle with Bond though out the movie.

If all goes well, we'll see the movie in theaters on October 23, 2015 in the U.K. and on November 6, 2015 in the U.S.
