London: Actress Judi Dench, who plays M, the boss to 007`s character, has let it slip that they are working on the next Bond movie in November.

Dench is happy to reprise her role as MI6 boss M in the 23rd movie, the Sunday Express reported.

"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," Dench said during a public event.

She has played M six times before, starting her role in the franchise alongside Pierce Brosnan in Golden Eye in 1995.

She the teamed up with new Bond Daniel Craig in 2006 for `Casino Royale` in 2006 and will be reprising her role again for the upcoming film, Bond 23.

In April last year, Bond 23, the 23rd in the series and Craig`s third, was suspended indefinitely due to the crippling debt and uncertain future of production company MGM.

But Craig and Sam Mendes are back to the movie, which is now due for release in November 2012.
