Q Returns In New Bond Film Skyfall

Iconic gadget maker Q will finally return to the spy franchise in Daniel Craig’s third James Bond outing Skyfall, directed by Oscar winner Sam Mendes.

Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli confirmed the news today in the following statement:

“It’s a real thrill to confirm the return of Q in ‘Skyfall’ played by the enormously talented, Ben Whishaw. We are delighted to have this beloved character back in the series.”

Ben Wishaw is a young British actor best known for turns in Perfume and Bright Star. He’s also worked with Daniel Craig before in gritty Gangster film Layer Cake, ironically the film widely credited with landing Craig his role as 007.

Skyfall will explore the backstory of Bond’s MI6 boss M, played by national treasure Dame Judi Dench. Director Sam Mendes admits that working with her and this aspect of the story was a big part of his decision to take on the latest instalment of Ian Fleming’s immortal spy franchise.

“I didn’t just say yes to doing a Bond movie, I said yes to doing a Bond movie with Daniel Craig. This Bond movie and Judi Dench.  Judi, to me, is one of the great actors of the English-speaking world and so it’s a question of, well, a little bit like, what can we give her that will take her to another level we’ve never seen her before?  What can we do with her that will surprise or challenge even her?”
