MI6 is reporting that Dame Judi Dench will return as M in the as yet-to-be-titled Bond 23 film from MGM and is
due in theaters on Nov 9 2012.

It will be the seventh time Dench has played the role of M. She debuted as Bond’s boss back  in 1995’s GoldenEye opposite first timer Pierce Brosnan. She’s also played along side Daniel Craig in both of his outings as Bond.

“Of course, I’m looking forward hugely to working with Daniel [Craig] again and with Sam [Mendes] who I’ve only ever worked with in the theatre. So that’ll be all good fun to do! I’m so glad it’s coming back, it’s wonderful.”

Production is set to begin in late 2011. Sam Mendes will direct Daniel Craig, who is back for his 3rd adventure as 007. The Bond 23 screenplay was written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan.
