Daniel Craig 'gagging' for more Bond

Craig says he can't wait to start filming the latest James Bond film.

The newest installment will be the 23rd film of its kind, with Daniel set to reprise his role as 007 following a three-year break since Quantum of Solace.

43 year-old Craig told Extra: "We've got a script, it's fantastic. I'm gagging to go, I've had a break now."

"Although it sort of seemed like it was never going to happen, it always was going to happen - it was just a matter of sorting out people and financing. We start shooting October or November this year."

He also revealed that whilst he was looking forward to returning as Bond, he welcomed the chance to mix things up a bit. "It's been nice to have some time off from the role, it's given me a chance to have a break."

Daniel is currently filming his new movie Cowboys and Aliens, alongside Harrison Ford.
