That will mark a four-year hiatus for Bond since his last adventure, 2008's "Quantum of Solace." The franchise had been on hold amid MGM's financial troubles, with the company now trying to start over after filing for bankruptcy protection and restructuring last November.

Daniel Craig returns for his third outing as British super-spy Bond. Sam Mendes ("American Beauty," ''Road to Perdition") is directing, with production expected to start late in 2011.
