Ralph Fiennes Skyfall
London - Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Wishaw have options to return for the 24th James Bond movie.

The acting trio all star in forthcoming 007 thriller Skyfall - which is directed by Sam Mendes - and they look set to reprise their respective roles in the following motion picture, the Daily Mail newspaper reports.

Naomie plays field agent Eve in the upcoming film and Ben is in line to star as Q, while details of Ralph's role as Mallory, the Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee, have been largely kept under wraps, but he has been described as "dark and complex".

The latest Skyfall trailer - which appears to show Bond being shot off a moving train - hints at Ralph's alter-ego's involvement in the latest movie.

The 24th Bond movie is due to start shooting within the next 18 months and Daniel Craig has already signed up to reprise his role as the secret agent.

Daniel and latest Bond girl Berenice Marlohe - who plays glamorous Severine in Skyfall - both recently took their roles to the small screen to star in a new TV and digital Heineken campaign ahead of the film's release.

The interactive clip sees Bond take on a Crack the Case challenge on an epic train journey, and it features a number of nods to the film franchise including legendary character Dr No being digitally inserted.

Skyfall will be released in South Africa on 30 November 2012.
