The possibility has been thrown in by current James Bond depicter Daniel Craig when he exits the stage door for Broadway play 'A Steady Rain'.
The end of 2010 could mark the beginning of production for the new James Bond movie, "Bond 23". Current 007 star Daniel Craig was the one who broke out the possible starting time. Commander Bond pointed out at a YouTube video where the actor is captured uttering, "We start end of next year," when signing autographs for fans after his Broadway play "A Steady Rain" on Thursday, October 22.
41-year-old Craig has portrayed the famous spy agent since 2006, making his debut in "Casino Royale" and reprising the role in 2008's "Quantum of Solace". He is currently taking on the Broadway stage alongside "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" star Hugh Jackman for "A Steady Rain". His upcoming feature film will be "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn".
MGM and EON Productions have announced earlier the recruitment of Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Peter Morgan for "Bond 23". He will join the screenwriting team that consists also of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" actor Michael Sheen was once linked to the villainous role of Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
The revelation made by Daniel Craig can be seen at around the 00:50 marks.
