London: Dame Judi Dench has accidentally revealed that the filming for the next James Bond blockbuster will begin in November.

The date had been kept top secret until the Oscar winning actress, who will reprise the role of spymaster ‘M’ for the seventh time, let it slip.

The future of the Bond franchise, which was revamped with the casting of Craig as Bond in ‘Casino Royale’ and ‘Quantum of Solace’, was in doubt last year when MGM Studios filed for bankruptcy protection.

“I am going to do the next Bond in November. I don’t know the location yet but hopefully it will be somewhere nice. I can’t tell you much more but I do enjoy playing ‘M’ as she is such a strong character. I like being bossy and my grandson thinks its cool that I’m in Bond,” the Daily Express quoted the 76-year-old actress, as saying.
