Screenwriter Peter Morgan, who wrote the scripts for 'The Queen' and 'Frost/Nixon', suggested that the third outing of Daniel Craig as Bond would grip audiences, but refused to confirm anything else other than saying "it's a shocking story".
He said: "Bond creates a hysteria around it, one that I haven't previously known. It's a magnet for publicity - everyone wants to know what's going on with the new Bond."
Morgan has been writing the first draft of 'Bond 23' between July and October this year. Earlier this year, Daniel Craig confirmed that the next installment of the movie franchise would begin filming in 2010, while Dame Judi Dench has previously hinted she would film in early 2011.
Susan Boyle has been tipped as one potential contender to record the next James Bond theme. Monty Norman, composer of the 007 theme, said: "They'll think seriously because she's got the right kind of sweeping voice."
