Peter Morgan to pen Bond 23
Peter Morgan will join veteran Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who worked together on Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale.
The film's producers said: "Peter, Neal and Robert are extraordinarily talented. We're looking forward to working with the three of them."
Daniel Craig has also confirmed that he will return to reprise his role as the all-action spy for the latest instalment.
Morgan has twice been nominated for an Oscar, for The Queen in 2006 and earlier this year for Frost/Nixon.
The film followed the dramatic interview between David Frost and Richard Nixon that followed the Watergate scandal.
Frank Langella, who starred as Nixon opposite Michael Sheen as Frost, was also nominated for an Oscar for the film.
