The Mirror reports that the working title is 'Shatterhand' and is based on the 2001 thriller Never Dream of Dying by the American author Raymond Benson. Benson also wrote Bond books Tomorrow Never Dies, Die Another Day and The World is Not Enough.

The novel begins after a police raid on a French movie set which goes wrong and forces Fleming's brawny spy to get involved. Scriptwriters reportedly believe that it's the perfect plot to follow 2015's Spectre.

If you were a fan of Christoph Waltz's steely villain Ernst Stavro Blofield in Spectre, good news: he's apparently set to return alongside Dave Bautista who will play henchman Mr Hinx.

The paper also claims the 25th Bond film is to be filmed in Croatia with a source revealing, "Bond scriptwriters feel it could be the perfect follow-up to Spectre. They are hoping to film in Croatia next year."

They revealed that a local mayor had let slip they had been scouting for locations in the coastal city of Dubrovnik. Bad news for any locals who have already had enough of the influx of Game of Thrones tours, it could be about to get even more popular.
