The next Bond movie will be named Devil May Care, it has been reported.

According to The Sun, the sequel to last year's Skyfall will take it's name from Sebastian Faulk's 2008 Bond novel.

Devil May Care, which was written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Bond creator Ian Fleming's birth, is set in 1967 and follows Bond battling a chemist named Dr Julius Gorner, who aims to control Britain.

After Skyfall's resounding success at the box-office, Sam Mendes recently confirmed that he will return to direct the 24th Bond outing.

He said: ''[I am] very much looking forward to taking up the reins again and to working with Daniel Craig [and producers] Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for a second time.''

The next Bond movie is scheduled to be released in October 2015.
