The official website for James Bond, 007.com, has posted this new production video blog for the upcoming 23rd James Bond adventure, ‘Skyfall.’ The video features costume designer Jany Temime talking about how she worked with Bond star Daniel Craig and fashion designer Tom Ford on the film. Directed by Sam Mendes, ‘Skyfall’ will see Daniel Craig and Judi Dench continue their roles as 007 and M. The cast also includes Naomie Harris as a field agent named Eve, Javier Bardem as the main villain, Ben Whishaw as Q, Albert Finney, Tonia Sotiropoulou, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner – the MI6 Chief of Staff, Ola Rapace, French actress Bérénice Marlohe as the “glamorous and enigmatic Sévérine,” and Ralph Fiennes, who’s role has been described as “darkly complex.”

I’ve got high hopes for ‘Skyfall,’ I’m a huge fan of Daniel Craig’s incarnation of James Bond. This latest chapter was shot at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, Scotland, Whitehall in London, Shanghai and Istanbul. The screenplay is written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. ‘Skyfall’ will begin its worldwide roll-out in the UK and Ireland on October 26th, with a North American release following on November 9th. The Director of Photography is Roger Deakins, a nine-time Oscar nominee who previously shot the films ‘Jarhead’ and ‘Revolutionary Road’ for Mendes. Composer Thomas Newman will score the film.

In SKYFALL, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. SKYFALL marks the return of Daniel Craig as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007, as well as Judi Dench reprising her role as M. The film also stars franchise newcomers Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem and Naomie Harris. The film is directed by Sam Mendes from a screenplay written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and John Logan. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are producers.
