Producer Michael G. Wilson has revealed that preliminary work has begun on the 23rd James Bond film produced by Eon Productions. Wilson wouldn't specify any details, but said that star Daniel Craig was eager to get back into the role. He also said that Welsh singer Duffy and Amy Winehouse would be considered to sing the next title song. Craig has said recently that he would like to re-introduce Moneypenny in the series, but make her an in-depth character with an interesting past, instead of merely being the straight woman for Bond's puns. It stands to be a busy year for Eon Productions. The company is producing a non-Bond thriller as well as a remake of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. For more click here
