We can now confirm what we reported yesterday, that Daniel Craig will return for the next two James Bond films.  Craig will star in the 24th and 25th installments, making him the third-longest tenured actor to play Bond (after Sean Connery and Roger Moore).  Deadline also confirms that Sony Pictures will also return to co-finance those two films, as it has with Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and the upcoming Sam Mendes picture, Skyfall.  Speaking of Skyfall, we’ve got new word on just how long the film will run along with a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the opening sequence.  Hit the jump for all of that and more!

Skyfall, also starring Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe and Ola Rapace opens October 26th in the UK and November 9th in the US.

Empire Cinemas is reporting that Skyfall will come in at a lengthy 145 minutes, which puts it a tad longer than Casino Royale and about forty-minutes longer than Quantum of Solace (could you imagine if there were forty more minutes of QoS?).  We also have a nice behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the opening of Skyfall along with commentary from Mendes, Craig and more.  Check it out below (via The Film Stage):

Here’s the synopsis for Skyfall:

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.  In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her.  As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.
