2012's "Skyfall" was notable for a number of reasons, but one of the bigger things that it did was set up a new universe for the Daniel Craig version of Bond to play in, complete with his reporting to a new version of his superior M (now played by Ralph Fiennes) and, of course, a truly adorable new Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) to work alongside. The next Bond outing will reunite "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan, but that's about as much as people know about the next installment in the 007 franchise. Fiennes, however, let slip a pivotal piece of information.

Fiennes, who next stars in the delightful, darkly tinged Wes Anderson romp "The Grand Budapest Hotel," told MTV that he will be back for the next Bond installment and, what's more, that the production is scheduled to begin in October. (It's supposed to debut on November 6, 2015.)
When pressed for additional details, however, Fiennes clammed up. "I haven't read a script yet, so I can't tell you much," he told MTV. "They'd probably swear me to secrecy anyway."

Well, hey, at least we know Fiennes will be back and that shooting will begin soon. Considering how wonderful "Skyfall" was, hopefully everyone will be able to recapture the magic once more.
