|Javier Bardem at TIFF 2010|
If there was ever any doubt Javier Bardem is a major International Star now, that answer now would appear to be a clear and decisive "yes". The Spanish Actor has just been cast in the upcoming 23rd James Bond Film, Skyfall, to be helmed by American Beauty Director Sam Mendes.
Reprising his role for a third time will be Daniel Craig, despite rumours of now-in-Toronto Idris Elba taking-over the Role as the first Black James Bond. Dame Judi Dench will be returning also and appearing for the first time will be French Actress Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris.
The Film will be released in the UK first on October 26, 2012. Filming will take place at Pinewood Studios in London and also across Scotland, Turkey and China.
