The coming Bond film Skyfall has gathered a monumental cast behind the camera, with American Beauty and Road to Peridition director Sam Mendes at the helm and Jarhead and No Country for Old Men cinematographer Roger Deakins at the cameras. In the latest videoblog for the production, Medes and producer Michael Wilson discuss the reappearance of legendary on-camera talent in the form of the Aston Martin DB5.

The DB5 has been seen as recently as Casino Royale, but that spent barely a moment on screen and belonged to a villain. In Skyfall, the DB5 has a fuller role, and it has the same plate number as it did in its first appearance in Goldfinger: BMT 216A. It isn't the original car, though – which has a meandering history and was stolen in Boca Raton, Florida in 1997. Not that we care; we're just waiting for the movie's release on October 26. In the meantime, you can watch the videoblog below.
