London, July 23 (IANS) Actor Daniel Craig is extremely upbeat about starting work on his third James Bond movie.
The 43-year-old had appeared in the last 007 film “Quantum of Solace”, which released in 2008.
“We’ve got a script, it’s fantastic. I’m gagging to go, I’ve had a break now. Although it sort of seemed like it was never going to happen, it always was going to happen - it was just a matter of sorting out people and financing. We start shooting October or November this year,” thesun.co.uk quoted Craig as saying.
In the past three years, the actor has been busy with “Cowboys & Aliens” and forthcoming thriller “Dream House”, thanks to which he met his new wife, Rachel Weisz.
After tying the knot in a secret ceremony in New York last month, Craig is now awaiting to reprise his role as the super spy in the 23rd installment of the Bond series.
“It’s been nice to have some time off from the role, it’s given me a chance to have a break,” he said.
The yet-to-be-titled movie will be directed by Sam Mendes. It is expected to hit screens in October 2012.
