Bond 23 is on.

Daniel Craig is set to reprise his role as the grizzled (can’t believe I’m actually using that word to describe Bond!?) MI6 agent, while Sam Mendes (who worked with Craig on “The Road to Perdition”) will direct.

The film, written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan, will be released November 9, 2012.

Sony and Paramount are said to be vying for the distribution rights to the Bond series.
