Bond 23 to be called Skyfall?

James Bond will return in Skyfall ...

Really? Well, that's the buzz since brand protection agents working for Sony Pictures started buying up any virtual real estate that ties in with that title.

Everything from to has been registered recently to stop people trading on that name.

The first purchase came in mid-August, when domain name services bought and other web addresses with the word Skyfall in them.

Online speculation suggests that ties in with the point MGM and Sony may have finalised a name, with Daniel Craig only confirming a title exists in the past month.

What seems out of place from the recent run of movies is any connection to Ian Fleming's novels or other references to the author's life.

However, until EON, MGM or Sony announces the official title (or Craig lets it slip), this is the closest proof we have of Bond 23 's moniker.
