London - The new James Bond film will be called Skyfall.

Up until now the movie - which will star Daniel Craig as 007 - has been known as Bond 23 but now Sony Pictures and MGM have registered a series of website names including and, meaning bosses have made a decision on its title.

While the production of the film has experienced quite a few problems - including being delayed because of funding issues - Daniel recently revealed he was "as excited" about the forthcoming James Bond movie as he was with Casino Royale, the picture in which he first played the character.

He said: "We've got a great script this time. I'm as excited about this script as I was about the Casino Royale script. I think in Sam we've got the perfect director. The cast is coming together now. I can't wait to get going with it."

The production also had difficulties in securing filming locations in India due to red tape and a massive action sequence will now be shot in South Africa, reports Cover Media.

The movie is set to go into production soon, with Dame Judi Dench reviving the role of spy boss M, while Naomie Harris has been rumoured to be taking on the role of Ms Moneypenny.

Javier Bardem is rumoured to be playing the lead bad guy.

    They don't need any action shots. They just have to set up a camera in Hillbrow and they will get all the action they can use for 10 more Bond films! LOL

    They are shooting it here in SA right? They should have called it "The Golden Handshake".

    they filmimg it in South Africa because of one scene they weren't allowed to film in india, where the movie is supposedly set. In South Africa, we say 'ya, do what you want man! Where's the money?'
