Mendes Prepping "Bond 23"

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and EON Productions report that the 23rd "James Bond" movie will go into production late this year, again starring Daniel Craig as author Ian Fleming's '007' British secret agent.

Sam Mendes who featured Craig in "The Road To Perdition" will direct from a screenplay by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan.

Sony previously distributed the last two Bond features 2006's "Casino Royale" and 2008's "Quantum of Solace".

Both films, starring Craig as Bond, had a combined gross of more than $1.2 billion in worldwide box office.
