Good news for James Bond fans.
It's been confirmed that the new film has been given the green light - and Daniel Craig is returning as the suave secret agent.
Having been put on hold amid financial troubles, the 23rd Bond movie has now been scheduled for release on November 9, 2012.
It will star Daniel as 007 for the third time and is being directed by Sam Mendes. Production begins at the end of the year.
While the storyline is being kept under wraps, it is thought that Judi Dench will return as 'M'.
But there is no word yet on which silver screen beauty will be cast as a coveted Bond girl.
