Fans await new Bond film details

Movie bosses are preparing to start filming the next James Bond production with the title and other details to be announced later this week.

Fans will have a feverish wait until Thursday when the name of the 24th film will be announced during an event to be broadcast live online from Pinewood Studios, which has long been the home for 007 hits.

Members of the cast will be present as the production team assembles at the studio to launch the follow-up to Skyfall at 11am. Filming will begin four days later.

Film-maker Sam Mendes, who was in charge of the previous film, was announced last year as director of the next instalment after producers agreed to fit around his other commitments.

Daniel Craig has also been confirmed for a further outing as Bond, while screenwriter John Logan is another who will return.

The team will have their work cut out to match the success of Skyfall which was the highest grossing film of all time in the UK.

The new film is expected to be released in October next year during a busy few weeks at the box office, with the final Hunger Games film and the eagerly awaited Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens due out in subsequent weeks.
