Bond star accidentally leaks next movie’s date?

Whishaw hints at Bond 24’s shoot date.

‘Skyfall’ star Ben Whishaw may have accidentally leaked the filming date for the next James Bond movie – revealing in an interview that he’d be back together with Daniel Craig in “about ten months.”

Speaking to The Radio Times, 32 year-old Whishaw was asked if he kept in touch with Daniel Craig - to which he replied: “We know that we’ll probably be back together in about ten months.”

The actor reportedly then realised what he’d said, quickly adding: “Well, hopefully. Let’s hope so!”

Too late Ben. Too late.

Whishaw, who played MI6 technical expert Q in last year’s ‘Skyfall’, also spoke about possibility of 007 star Craig returning to the role, after recent reports suggest the actor was unhappy with the quick turn-around to make the next Bond movie:

"I know that he’s doing the next three so I’m not thinking beyond that,” he said. “We’ve got to just get through those first.

"Well obviously I would like just for him to be in it more!" he joked.

This comes just a day after it was reported ‘Skyfall’ director Sam Mendes was “75 percent likely” to return to the franchise now that plans to film Bond 24 and 25 back-to-back had apparently been dropped. It would have been a four year project.

Last week ‘Skyfall’ took the BAFTA for Outstanding British Film, and is currently up for five awards, including Best Cinematography, at this Sunday’s 85th Academy Awards.
