James Bond megasite MI6 says that, at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards, Dame Judi Dench told media folk that she is, indeed, returning for another round as "M" in the next 007 movie - which we already knew will return Daniel Craig and be directed by Sam Mendes (AMERICAN BEAUTY, ROAD TO PERDITION, JARHEAD).
Dench's appearance in the pictutre isn't a tremendous surprise all things being equal. But, given BOND 23's troubled and wobbly path to the screen (MGM's recent financial woes), nothing could be taken for granted. I really like her take on "M" - it'll be great to have her back.
