In early November of this year, /james-bond-23-due-november-of-2012/Bloomberg released a report that stated MGM is set to produce and release James Bond 23 by November of 2012. We haven't heard too much about the project since that time. But now, composer David Arnold, who created the music for the last five James Bond adventures including Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, has confirmed that James Bond 23 is happening and that he is coming back to score the franchise once again.

Arnold spoke with Film Music Magazine, where he relayed this information after being asked if he had any plans for the upcoming James Bond 23 soundtrack:

"I haven't thought about it yet. We only just got the news that we're back on. But 'there's many a slip twixt cup and lip' So I will keep quiet until I get a script and then start writing ideas. I just hope the next one is as good as my favorites, as I think everyone does. And I'm always interested in what Daniel Craig brings to the part. But like most things with movies, if it ain't on the page etc... All I can say is that I'm looking forward to a great script for it, alongside every other Bond fan in the world!

David Arnold's music can next be heard in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader, which will be released next Friday, December 10th.
