British thespian Dame Judi Dench is convinced there will be no new James Bond for upcoming 007 movie Casino Royal - Pierce Brosnan will be back as the superspy.

Dench, who has played Bond's boss M in the last four films, insists fans shouldn't be expecting a new face, despite reports both Clive Owen and Daniel Craig are being secretly groomed as the next 007.

She says: "Despite the fact that everyone on the face of the earth has been tested as his (Brosnan) possible replacement, he'll be doing it again, and it'll be announced come summer."
