LONDON - Good news for gadget-loving James Bond fans — Q is back.

Producers have confirmed that the MI6 quartermaster and expert in high-tech trickery will return in the upcoming Bond film, "Skyfall."

EON productions said Thursday that British actor Ben Whishaw will play the role made famous by the late Desmond Llewellyn, who played Q in 17 Bond films between 1963 and 1999.

Comedian John Cleese later played the character in two films during Pierce Brosnan's stint as 007, but Q was absent from Daniel Craig's first two Bond adventures, "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace."

Directed by Sam Mendes, "Skyfall" is due for release around the world in the fall.

Craig will be joined by a cast that includes Javier Bardem, Albert Finney, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris.
