I was happy to read that a third James Bond film featuring Daniel Craig has overcome studio and budgetary hurdles and is now going into production. I thought that the franchise had lost its way a bit and was glad for the back to basics approach they took to the character when they decided to go back to the beginning with Casino Royale. I'm glad they held onto Judi Dench as M, though - she is great in the role. As much as I like the new films, Craig is still only my second favorite Bond. Sean Connery has a cool ease that will be very hard to replace.
