Bond 23 is back on, it has been reported.
Composer David Arnold, who arranged the scores for Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace, has revealed that he has received news that the latest instalment of the 007 franchise is now "back on" after the official, indefinite postponement by EON Productions earlier this year.
"We only just got the news that we're back on," he told FilmMusicMag.com, adding: "But there's many a slip twixt cup and lip so I will keep quiet until I get a script and then start writing ideas.
"I just hope the next one is as good as my favourites, as I think everyone does."
David hinted Daniel Craig would reprise his role as super-spy James Bond.
"I'm always interested in what Daniel Craig brings to the part. But like most things with movies, if it ain't on the page etc... All I can say is that I'm looking forward to a great script for it, alongside every other Bond fan in the world!"
Bond 23, rumoured to be directed by Sam Mendes, is expected to start shooting in 2011 for a 2012 release.
