So if you been anxiously awaiting the title of the new James Bond film your wait is over. The title for James Bond 23 is Skyfall.

At a press conference, the director, Sam Mendes, was joined by the producers of the film to introduce the major cast and give details on the production.

So who's on board you ask? Judi Dench, French newcomer (and newest Bond girl) Bérénice Marlohe, Naomie Harris, and, of course, Daniel Craig. They also named Javier Bardem as “the villain of the piece”.

Marlohe revealed that she’ll play “a glamorous, enigmatic character," while Harris announced she’ll play “a field agent called Eve” dismissing the Moneypenny rumors.

Mendes stressed that the film doesn’t relate to any other Fleming or Bond property. “It doesn’t connect with the other films. Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan have written a fantastic script and I think it has all the ingredients to be a fantastic Bond movie, including – to quash any rumors – lots of action,” he said.

The plot line, based on a press release, indicates..."Bond's loyalty to M is tested to the full as her past comes back to haunt her. As M16 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost."

Principal photography starts Monday with filming taking place in London, China, Istanbul and Scotland. The film is expected to hit screens October 26, 2012. Below is a clip of the producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, unveiling the title.
