We were starting to get a pretty serious case of whiplash over the issue of whether Daniel Craig would agree to don that tux one more time for that ubiquitous "Bond 24" installment and the news of whether his "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes would or would not or wait he maybe would return to helm. But now it's time to raise a toast with a "shaken-not-stirred" martini indeed because the studio has today confirmed the pair will re-team for another installment of 007, comin' at us in 2015.

According to the always reliable British press, Penelope Cruz — only one of the sexiest women in our known galaxy, n.b.d. — will be an oooh la la Bond girl in the upcoming 007 outing, which is scheduled to begin filming next summer.

Two notes: as you might recall, her hubby Javier Bardem played the slippery villain in last year's truly excellent "Skyfall", so there's that, and when production starts next year she will go down in history as the oldest Bond girl ever ... at the tender age of 40.

Zounds!

UPDATE: Not so fast there, Mendes! Mz. Broccoli isn't finished with you yet! According to a Deadline Hollywood report that went up just hours after Variety published a story revealing all of the directors in the running, the guy who directed "Skyfall" (and won an Oscar for "American Beauty") is back in the running to direct Bond 24 after all. Mendes had told Empire Magazine that he bowed out in order to focus on other projects, including a West End production of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." The Deadline report says that Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and her half-brother Michael Wilson are now open to waiting for him.

EARLIER: Are we ready to see James Bond with a wizard's wand? Will Nick Fury ask him to join "The Avengers" in a post-credits scene? How about Daniel Craig donning the "Iron Man" suit, helping a royal get over a stutter, or (gulp) fighting Hulk dogs? Get More »

Movie Cliché Du Jour: Bad Guys Getting Caught on Purpose

Star Trek Into Darkness Paramount

WARNING: SPOILERS RUNNING FREE.

Generally speaking, bad guys are bad guys because they want to do bad things and get away with them, so if you see one get caught in the middle of a movie it usually means they've got an ace up their sleeve. Lately we've been seeing this trend of the bad guy getting caught on purpose (capture, interrogation, threat, destruction, escape) in big tentpole blockbusters, and either every copy of Final Draft has a glitch that automatically pastes that into a script … or folks are getting lazy.

Next James Bond Flick Won't Arrive Until 2016

Columbia Columbia

Once upon a time, James Bond movies came out like clockwork. Every two years, a new Bond film would hit theaters. You could almost hear the ticking, like a time bomb counting down to the next explosion of awesome.

Well, according to Reuters, MGM has just cut the blue wire, because once again the countdown has stalled — and this time it's going to be at least three more years until we get a sequel to "Skyfall."

Hey, at least they'll have plenty of time to finish counting all their money. Get More »
