[ April 11th 2005 ]

Tomb Raider star Daniel Craig has been tapped as the lead runner in the race to fill the immense shoes vacated by Pierce Brosnan as British secret service agent James Bond, code-name 007. Casino Royale, penned by Ian Flemming, has been confirmed by MGM as the next Bond movie. Martin Campbell (Beyond Borders (with Angelina Jolie), GoldenEye) will direct. Dame Judi Dench and John Cleese are also attached.

According to trivia on IMDb, the rights to Fleming's first 007 novel, "Casino Royale" - sold by him separately very early on - now reportedly reside with Eon Productions. The book was filmed for television and later as a big-screen spoof, since Connery was unavailable. In Casino Royale, James Bond must thwart a dangerous Russian spy from winning a baccarat game worth millions.
