Daniel Craig hinted in October that the cameras on Bond 23 would start rolling towards the end of next year, and now Dame Judi Dench who plays M. told MTV that she is expected to start filming in Spring 2011.
“I think I’m going to be needed in spring of 2011,” she said. “That’s a message I got. It would mean I could do something at the end of next year, something else, maybe be in the theater.”
For her part, Dench can’t wait for the chance to reunite with Craig. “I just think he’ll go on from strength to strength,” she said. “He’s a fantastically good actor.”
If all goes according to plan we will most likely see Bond back on screen in late 2011. The Queen and Frost/Nixon writer Peter Morgan was brought on-board to work on the script back in June, and we should be hearing who will be directing sometime next year.
