It'll also be live-tweeted on the official James Bond Twitter account, @007. The event will take place at the 007 Stage at Pinewood Studios, built in 1976 for The Spy Who Loved Me.

Skyfall director Sam Mendes is set to return for the next Bond film, which has a script written by John Logan and rewritten by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Daniel Craig will reprise his role as James Bond, in his fourth turn as the iconic British spy.

Also expected to return are Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q, and Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner. Rumored new cast members include Léa Seydoux as a Bond girl, Dave Bautista as a villainous henchman, and Christoph Waltz as the main villain, possibly Blofeld. Guess we'll find out tomorrow if all that talk will pan out.

Principal photography will begin Monday. As usual, Bond 24 will be a globe-trotting adventure, with shoots planned in Italy, Morocco, the Austrian Alps, Mexico, and London. Bond 24, whatever it may be called, will open November 6, 2015.
