Fans of James Bond are sure to be excited to hear that there will be a new movie instalment next year.

It will be out in the UK on October 26th 2012, two full weeks before it gets its US release, but the title of the 23rd Bond adventure has not yet been revealed.

Sam Mendes is to be the director, while Daniel Craig will return as the Martini-loving secret agent.

There was supposed to be another movie last year, but the project was put to one side because of financial uncertainty at MGM Studios.

October 2012 is a special time for the Bond empire, as it will be 50 years since the release of Dr No.

Last month Britain was already going Bond crazy, as Jeffery Deaver's novel Carte Blanche was released in hardback.

It is set in the 21st century this time and sees Bond as a veteran of the Afghanistan conflict.
